With this is mind, it is important to stick to a diet that doesn’t have a lot of fat or carbohydrates in it. Carbs are great just before workouts as they release energy, but shouldn’t be the main part of the diet as it stores as fat. Eating a lot of protein can really help to build and tone muscle fibres and is rarely high in calories.

  • Fasten the muscle toning belt around the abdomen just above the hips, ensuring the pads are touching the stomach.
  • Get into a comfortable position.
  • Once the belt is fastened, turn the belt on using the LCD screen and put it on to the lowest setting.
  • As and when you feel ready, turn the level up to the setting that is best for you. The pads should apply enough of a shock that your muscles contract slightly and start to ache a little bit. It is recommended not to do this for more than 30 minutes.
