Belly fat burners produce profuse sweating, which leads to temporary loss of water weight, according to the Los Angeles Times. However, use of belly belts and similar devices can actually make it more difficult to get rid belly fat because they inhibit the wearer's ability to effectively exercise abdominal muscles.
Although belly fat burners produce short-term results, they are ineffective tools for sustained management of the problem. Keys to reducing belly fat include maintaining a nutritious diet, restricting sugar, taking vitamin C and using exercises such as planking to build core strength, reports Forbes. Reducing stress can also be effective, since belly fat is related to increased cortisol production, which directly correlates to stress.
