Flexbelt update – what’s the best diet?

Hi everyone! If you’re reading this, then you are probably trying to discover the best diet that works with the Flex belt. Flex belt offers a nutritional guide when you buy one of its ab toning belts, and in it you’ll find a lot of diet advice such as snacking on yogurt and almonds, eating more vegetables and grains and so on. So does the Flex belt diet work? Sure, and it’s particularly good for those new to exercise or healthy eating as it encourages the user to eat a balanced diet rich in nutrition and really focus on moving away from diet saboteurs.

Ease back and go for the less sweet versions like berries. The wrong fats – to lose fat you actually have to eat fat! But there are loads of types you should avoid, such as (hydrogenated) trans fats or unhealthy cooking oils like soya or canola oil. Sugar – in any form. When we eat sugary foods, the sugar level in our blood spikes and the body has to produce insulin to counteract the spike. Excess insulin is stored as, yep, you’ve guessed it, fat, especially around our midsections. The good news is that it doesn’t take long to wean yourself off these sugary treats. Alcohol – unfortunately alcohol is mostly sugar and has no beneficial attributes, apart from the fun of the night of course 😉  But the next day is also a killer, I mean who...
