Does anyone know if those electronic ab belts you wrap around your abdomen actually work to build muscle there? It seems a little too good to be true...any success stories?

Well, they say it is designed to be used with diet and exercise. So, I'm guessing that the diet and exercise is what really leads to muscle building and weight loss.

My husband's used them on his arms before now to help strengthen his arm muscles and improve the speed of his punches for ju jitsu tournaments before now, but if you're expecting to get a six pack from sitting there with them on all evening, you're going to be sorely disappointed. It does help improve tone, but only really in conjunction with good old fashioned exercises that target the area as well.

The electric bit improves the muscle, the excercise and diet gets rid of the fat.
