You must be wondering how a mere belt can give you results which hours and weeks at the gym could hardly do. The answer is very simple, Science. Research is what brings a lot of differences. The Flex belt was launched after four year of intensive and extensive mind scratching and studying.

The flex belt utilizes state-of-the-art-technology referred to as EMS which are the initials for Electric Muscle Stimulation. This is the same technology therapists in the healthcare industry have used for over thirty years.

The special making of the Flex Belt outlines three medical-grade Gel Pads, that are used to cover the external obliques and central abdominal area. When you are utilizing the belt, signals originating from the belt go to the nerves where their concentration is high. It is these nerves that branch out to the various stomach muscles causing them to naturally relax and contract . this works out all muscles at the same time and not only those found under the gel pads.

When you engage in traditional crunches, the upper and lower abdomen accommodates most of the heat. When you do foot crunches or side planks, your obliques are developed. However, with a Flex Belt, the upper, lower and sides are all engaged at the same time. based on your frequency, this will give you 150 flexes at the upper, lower and obliques simultaneously.

It might feel odd that all your abdominal muscles are being worked out without you having to do anything. The Flex belt does everything for you.

At the beginning, it may feel a bit unnatural but as time goes by, you get used to it. The belts width is small and it can be concealed under a coat. You can have it on while doing other things such as cleaning, working on your computer or shopping.

Weight Loss: What You Missed Out? And What You Should Do?


Tired of struggling with weight loss and still remain on the same scale? Maybe you have heard a million times that weight loss is just getting rid of those calories and still you can’t lose weight. The process of losing weight can be very devastating for us especially when we can’t see the progress. Perhaps, you have thought of what went wrong? And those muffin top just can’t seem to be gone from your belly. Researches have shown that weight gain is not only caused by the foods we eat but are also the results of genetic predisposition, environmental influences or lifestyle behaviors. Based on my personal opinion, below are the common problems of weight gain apart from foods.

Firstly, you are not having enough sleep. Lack of sleep is always associated with weight gain because it disrupts your metabolic rate and affects the leptin and ghrelin hormones which are related with hunger.

What you should do: Do not engage on screen such as laptops, TV or phone as it can stimulates your eyes and disturb your sleeping time. Clean up before sleeping and avoid drinking alcohol, smoking or taking other drugs like sleeping pills.

Second, you might not be aware with hidden sugars you consumed per day. Breakfast cereals, sports drinks, sauces and spreads can sometimes contain hidden sugar that you are unaware of. Although these may not seem to be very dangerous like other sugary foods, it can still lead to other health condition such as tooth decay, diabetes, heart disease and most of all obesity.

What you should do: When you are going for a grocery, always check out the Nutritional Fact or the food label. Avoid foods that contains huge amount of sugar (in disguise) such as maltose, fructose, molasses, malt, glucose, sucrose, corn syrup, or fruit juice concentrate. These are sugars that you must avoid if you want to have a healthy, balanced diet.

Third, you are too busy to cook at home. The advantage of cooking at home is that you get the chance to choose what ingredients you mixed in your foods. Foods in the restaurant contain plenty of additives and calories which are hidden from you and you will just end up gaining more weight.

What you should do: Avoid from eating foods in the restaurant and set a time to really prepare your meal every day. As much as possible, prepare an extra freeze-portion meal so that you can have food whenever you are too busy to prepare.

Finally, you are living a sedentary lifestyle. If you want to achieve that healthy body you’ve been dreaming of, get out from your couch and start working out. No more dreaming and start making it a reality. You might want to consider using stairs instead of elevators form now onward.

What you should do: It may be a minimum of 30 minutes’ walk outside the part or the beach followed by a moderate run in order to get your body working and moving. Do this at least 3 times a day to get your heart pumping and allow the smooth blood circulation around your body system. Gradually increase the intensity of your workout if your body needs a push.

There are still plenty of ways you can do in order to get yourself in shape apart from eating calorie-filled foods. The key is simply getting on a healthy lifestyle with the right, positive attitude. Prepare your mind and body to fully embrace the process of weight management, having a pessimistic attitude can only lead to frustration and weight gain. Nevertheless, if you still can’t see changes in your weight, try to consult your doctor. There may be some underlying problem that needs an expert’s advice. I believe that making your health the most priority matter in your life is important because a healthy body can lead to a healthy mind and soul. Never give up in the journey of weight loss. If I can, why can’t you?
