    Do waist trimmers really help to burn fat around your waist? I've heard "Sweet Sweat Belt" helps burn fat? Anyone have one?

    No. The only way to lose fat around your waist is to lose fat and you can't control where your body chooses to rob fat, and that happens when you take in fewer calories than you burn. Though guys tend to store fat around their waist, the whole body will lose fat at some rate and sometimes the waist is the last to go. Devices like you're asking about may help shed fluids temporarily, it comes right back as soon as you rehydrate. I find the best way to lose fat is to reverse the process-- don't try to diet to skinny, pick a target weight you think would look good on you, figure out what eating habits would be perfect to maintain that weight forever, then eat that. The weight will slowly drop to that level and you can speed things up by working out a bit harder. Muscles get bigger and burn more fat even when at rest and certainly when you're working out. So when the fat finally is gone, you're also jacked. And you're in a pattern and habits you can live with forever. Don't forget to give yourself a couple of "cheat meals" each week when you get to eat something bad that you love-- just keep it in moderation-- portion control is almost more important than what you do or don't eat.

    I just want to know anyone have any experiences with waist trimmers. I am not trying to lose weight, I have already lost from 166 to 145 lbs last month.

    Thanks for your comments.

    Paleo diet will trim 5 lbs of fat a week. Give it a try all you have to lose is fat .

    All true. Many people incorrectly think that if they're trying to lose a spare-tire belly they should concentrate on doing sit-ups & crunches. Wrong.

    It's true that you can improve the underlying muscle tone underneath that fat, but you aren't removing specific areas of fat any more directly than you are than by doing other exercises. Like jogging, biking, walking, swimming, etc.

    As you say, the body absorbs fat from the places that IT chooses, not you. So you reduce calorie intact, and burn more calories with exercise, and hope you lose the fat you don't want to have.

    For many men, the abdominal area sorta acts like a camel's hump for fat storage. Not retaining water for camels, as is sometimes mistakenly believed, nor for us, but fat for nutrition during scarce food times.

    And humans also developed this famine protection. Except that today many of us don't need that safeguard, we usually are confident of getting our next regular balanced meal, so that we can stay leaner all the time without risk.

    In a sense your body WANTS to gain fat, it was "programmed" that way in primeval times to survive. Making it a constant battle, especially as the slowing activity levels and lower metabolism of age make avoiding fat tougher.

    But gaining fat has it's own risks, it's not entirely beneficial. Dangers that manifest themselves more frequently during a longer lifespan than our distant short-lived ancestors typically experienced. Another good reason for us today to keep the weight under control, not just for appearances.

    No.

    There is zero evidence they can help burn fat.

    Not to mention that it is impossible to target WHERE you lose fat--you can't just "burn fat around the waist."

    The only thing that actually works to burn fat is caloric reduction--you have to use more calories than you consume.
