While the idea of standing still and having a machine do the work for you may be appealing, there is no scientific evidence to support the notion that vibrating belts reduce belly fat. The Federal Trade Commission calls vibrating belt ads deceiving, and even the purveyors of the equipment are quick to point out that their products come with exercise and diet advice.

Back to Basics
Follow the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control’s guidelines, exercising aerobically at a moderately intense level for 150 to 300 minutes a week. Many activities fall under the aerobic umbrella -- from brisk walking to cycling to swimming -- so choose an activity that will hold your interest. In addition, commit to strength training for at least 20 minutes on two non-consecutive days each week. Include exercises that target your abs. Adopt a nutrient-dense, fiber-rich diet that meets your energy needs.
