Flat Belly Fix Review: My Opinion On The Weight Loss Program
Hey there! My name is Barbara G. I’m currently a single mother, working to raise my two daughters on my own.
Taking care of them is a full time job, but I’m making it work. and I’m a single mother of two kids.
To make a long story short, I’m single after catching my husband in the act of cheating with a younger, thinner woman. What resulted was a slow, toxic breakup which left me half the person I used to be.
Without getting too explicit, by the end of it all I was a mess. I was depressed, I was binge eating, and I was engaging in other disruptive habits. I eventually realized that if I didn’t pull myself out of the downward spiral, I was going to let down everyone who depended on me.
I wanted to reclaim my health for good.
I decided to turn to Google and look for fitness programs with good reviews, which is what lead me to the Flat Belly Fix.
I was determined to get off my butt and do something before it got any harder to get back to where I used to be.
My Flat Belly Fix Review
First off, I was caught off guard by the number of detailed reviews I found on the Flat Belly Fix. To me, this showed that the program had some popularity, which made me a little more warm towards the prospect of trying it out.
However, that said, I did notice that quite a few reviews were just cleverly disguised advertisements trying to sell you on the program. If you’re browsing around, make sure you watch out for similar tricks. It gets really annoying trying to see who’s being objective!
Because of the fake reviewers, I did have a little difficulty answering a few questions before I bought the program. I didn’t want to spend money without knowing what I was getting into, because I was on a budget.
However, because I was also a little desperate to try and start losing weight, I was considering buying the program regardless. There was just one thing I HAD to look into first…
The creator of Flat Belly Fix, Todd Lamb.
I would have preferred using a program created by a woman, but I was open to seeing what Todd has to say as long as his background information checked out. As it turns out, Todd Lamb background is actually intense.
He was a veteran police officer for 17 years, as well as SWAT Team Leader.
He’s also created another program, more aimed at men, called the Specforce Alpha. So he has some experience creating pdf guides for people to follow to lose weight.
So while this information did make me think Todd would know his stuff, it also made me a little apprehensive. It sounded like this might be a program that would be too hard for a beginner to get into.
Keeping this in mind, I bought the program to give it an honest try. I heaed over to the website at www.flatbellyfix.com and purchased the program + Kindle version.
What’s Included In The Flat Belly Fix?
Todd explains everything that’s included on his website here.
But I’ll go ahead and explain everything I got after buying it…
Just a heads up, this is a digital product. Nothing gets mailed to your address – instead you get an automatic email. There’s also an audiobook you can purchase for $3 (more on that later)
- The 21 Day System – The 21 Day System is the “main” portion of the Flat Belly Program. It’s a pretty easy to understand and comprehensive guide to belly fat, and he includes a chapter that breaks down the differences between men and women. This made a big impact on me, and made his information that much more credible in my opinion.
- The 7-Minute Flat Belly Protocol – This portion of the program is where most of the exercises were. Combining the information from the 21-day system, you use this section and the guides to execute the exercises. I was worried about the program being complicated due to Lamb’s background, but this section made the program easy enough to follow.
- Smoothie Recipe Guide – This is where the treats were! Delicious and nutritious recipes for post-workout snacks, ranging from chocolate and avocado to banana nut and more.
You can pay three dollars more and get a Kindle version and an Audiobook version of the guide.
I wouldn’t say this guide shocked me with the amount of information – it all seemed to be decently standard for the price. That said, it was surprisingly simple and beginner friendly.
My initial reaction after giving everything a read over was that I had not wasted my money.
What I Like About This Program & Todd Lamb
Every part of the program was very informative and easy to follow. I don’t think beginners have anything to be intimidated by with this program, which was a big deal for me.
I like how even though Lamb is a guy and most of his programs were for guys building muscle, he knew to take a different approach in trying to reach out to women. I can tell he took some consulting from other women while compiling the guide.
Besides this, I like the fact that he takes the time to inform you about why he recommends what he does. I like guides that I can follow to a T and get results, but with Lamb he’s additionally arming you with the knowledge to be able to make your own decisions.
I can tell I’ll be able to experiment with different workouts and diets thanks to what I’ve learned from Todd, and that’s mainly because his information is well researched while also being easily digestible. I’m not exactly a nutritional expert, and it was easy enough to comprehend.
As far as the actual workouts go, even as a beginner I didn’t have much issue. They’re fairly straightforward and Todd shows you how to do them with good form to avoid injury. Bonus points there.
I mostly do the exercises in the gym, and follow along with the PDF loaded on my iPhone.
A Couple of Things I Don’t Like About Flat Belly Fix
Don’t get me wrong, overall I say this program is worth the money. However, there are a few things that stand out as cons.
- I like reading on paper sometimes, I don’t like being one of those people that’s glued to their screens. However, since it’s only in a PDF form, I am, in fact, one of those people. I had to cave and print out pages from the guide to follow along with.
- I would have liked if there were some other consideration for post-workout treats, rather than just smoothies. I get that there’s some popular overlap, but come on.
- The last con I can see is that many women will be apprehensive to follow the guide because it’s created by a man. I would advise them to give it a shot anyway, but some people would rather have someone who “gets them” guide them.
My Flat Belly Fix Results So Far (UPDATED – 6 MONTHS PROGRESS)…
In just 3 weeks of sticking with this program, I started to notice the results. EDIT: I’ve updated with my progress after 6 months!
Not just results, but truly amazing progress.
I lost a total of 53 pounds. Some people don’t even recognize me anymore. I’m eating healthier, I’m more active overall, and I feel absolutely amazing.
No more brain fog. I wake up and I’m full of energy. I’ve even severely cut down on my use of coffee.
It’s hard to believe how much I’ve progressed when I look back. Some of these effects I noticed a few weeks into the program, which is how it was so easy for me to stick with it over time. Now I’m half a year into it and there’s no end in sight.
I honestly feel like a new person, and I have to say I owe it mostly to the Flat Belly Fix.
On a weaker note – I have to admit I do miss my ex-husband a bit. But I’ll never go back to being cheated on.
Do I Recommend the Flat Belly Fix?
I strongly recommend this program if you’re looking to get back into shape.
And if you’re just in a rough space in life, like I was, this might be able to help you as well! I’ve started to look at working out as a meditative/therapeutic sort of exercise, and it’s done wonders for me so far.
If I can do it, trust me, any of you reading this blog can!! I had never been to a gym before this.
Plus, the price on this fix is pretty affordable and comparable with other programs, that don’t give you half as much information and charge double the price.
I will try and keep this page updated with my results as I continue following the program, but in the meantime, please go to the comments below and ask any questions you want.
If you do happen to buy the Flat Belly Fix and stick with it, please come back and post your progress. I’d love to hear about your progress using the guide! Bookmark this page and share your experiences or your own Flat Belly Fix review.
And Todd, if you ever read this review – Thank you SOOOO MUCH! Your program literally saved my life.
