Flex Belt - Do Electronic Ab Belts Really Work?

Flex Belt - What is it?

I'm sure you've seen the late night infomercials with shiny gadgets that promise to deliver the next level of fitness at the touch of a button or some calorie torching cross fit style workout that will have you jumping around your living room like a snow man in a frying pan.

The Flex Belt is one of those gadgets that you have been likely to come across as seen on TV. The real question is: "Does the Flex Belt" work?

In order to answer that question we need to ask ourselves if this gadget is a technology bust or the real thing?
The Flex Belt

Does the Flex Belt Work?

There are numerous before and after pictures on the product website and there is no shortage of fit looking people on the commercials. This leads you to believe that you can just strap the belt on and watch fat melt away.

I assure you that this is not the case. The Flex Belt uses Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology that basically sends electric impulses to your midsection that causes your abdominal muscles to contract them. This essentially mimics the contractions you get from doing normal ab workouts.

EMS technology has been around for a long time and it works. It's often used to treat injuries that often happen in sports and is used to stimulate and strengthen muscles to aid in recovery.

Where Can I Learn More about it?

I found a website, www.criticalabbeltreviews, that has several electronic ab belts reviewed. They also have a pretty detailed review about the Flex Belt and how you can benefit fr
om it.

Until Next time....Tech Chick Weekly signing off.

1400 Calorie Diet Plan - Your Simple Solution To Weight Loss

Low Glycemic Foods and a healthy 1400 calorie diet will help you lose weight without feeling cheated

Diet plans are the first step to be taken when you want to lose weight and become healthier. 

Even so, quite a few people don't stick to their diet plans simply because they don't have the willpower. There are many ways to choose a diet, and you may want to pick one that has a good reputation or that someone you trust has recommended. Here we have some of the most popular diets and also information on how to push your diet further.

Recently in the news, the GI or Glycemic Index Diet has become very popular.

Glycemic foods can be ranked on a scale (from 1 to 100). The ideal recommended foods will be in a scale that is lower than 40. People who have Diabetes or hypoglycemia, will benefit from a diet program that has foods which are low on the Glycemic Index. Of course, the low GI Diet is not only for people with such illnesses, and can be useful to anyone who wants to lose weight and have more consistent energy levels throughout the day.

Losing weight, and feeling better, are both possible if you utilize cleansing diets that detoxify your system. 

Going on a juice fast using such products as Natural Cleanse or Master Cleanse are great places to start. In the long-term, you will see beneficial results in regard to your health with the added benefit of losing if you want to lose some weight during the process.

This is a temporary solution which is made possible through fasting and cleansing your system, so be prepared to gain weight back once you are off of it. The main lesson to learn is that by eating less, and ingesting healthier meals, you will lose weight by doing this on a consistent basis. Detoxification systems are useful, but temporary solutions, when trying to reach your weight loss goals.

Recent research has shown that no matter what diet plan you're following, that simple lifestyle factors such as getting enough sleep and reducing stress can have a very beneficial effect. Continually being stressed, and a perpetual lack of sleep, can lead to an inability to shed the excess weight. As you know, the more stressed out you are, the more likely you are to gain weight which can also affect your metabolism levels.

So you should do everything you can to reduce stress in your life and get enough rest. If you want to feel good, and lose weight too, you need to relax more a regular basis.

You may have to try a handful of different diet plans before you find the best one for you. 

Some people find that they need a very strict diet plan that outlines exactly what they're allowed to eat, while others prefer a less rigid program. You will certainly fare much better with a diet plan that does not make you feel cheated out of good foods., should you have to cut-back and lower your calories to some degree make sure you just cut a few calories at first. For example, let’s assume that your average calorie intake is roughly 2000 per day.

Instead of jumping in and cutting too many, just reduce a few, by say 200. Following a 1400 calorie diet for a few weeks will make sure you lose a few pounds while not skimping too much on the meals. This could be a simple as omitting 1 bag of chips our 1 can of cola daily.
