I lost a total of six inches in 30 days with the Slim Belly Belt System. I was in a group of five diverse women of different ages, weights and fitness levels. We encouraged each other, ate well balanced meals and worked out. Using the Slim Belly Belt, I lost twice as many inches as I did last year working out with my trainer. I highly recommend the Slim Belly for losing inches in your waiste area. I am encouraged to continue with it for more lost inches !!!
