Lean Belly Breakthrough Review: My Opinion On The Weight Loss Guide
Considering trying the Lean Belly Breakthrough program? Read this review before you spend your money!
Hey ladies! My name is Barbara G. I’m a single mother of two, which is a full time job.
Without getting too deep into details, my ex-husband decided to run out on me with a much younger, thinner model, at a period where I was starting to gain weight. Things got difficult from there, and I began to struggle with my physical appearance.
After a few months and a messy divorce, I was in a worse place mentally than I had ever been before, and it manifested itself in binge eating and unhealthy lifestyle habits. I was going down a dark path of self-destruction and it wasn’t until I realized it that I knew I had to shape up. If not for me, then at least for my two boys.
Being depressed and unmotivated? Unhealthy and lazy? What kind of role model is that for them to look up to?
I decided to pull together and began seeking out various programs I could try and use to lose weight. I didn’t want to just hop onto another fad diet, I wanted to really turn my life around, to begin something that I would be able to stick with. I turned to Google and after searching weight loss boards, I eventually came across the Lean Belly Breakthrough.
My main thoughts while I was looking into the program were if it would be something that a busy mother could do. I didn’t have too much time to dedicate to living at the gym, and I needed something that wasn’t too hard so I would actually be able to stick with it. So the question is, did the Lean Belly Breakthrough end up being that program?
My Lean Belly Breakthrough Review
First off, I was surprised at the number of reviews on the Lean Belly Breakthrough that I found… at first. But as I started looking through them, it became clear that almost everyone talking about the program was just an affiliate. They weren’t interested in giving real pros and cons for it, they just wanted to sell the guide.
That was automatically a mark against the program. I wanted real positive or real negative reviews. The more fake reviews there were, the more the product itself started to look like a scam to me.
That said, there were a few people who did actually give honest reviews, even if some of them were actually affiliates. I also reached out to people on forums like bodybuilding.com to see what they thought about the program, and a few people responded positively! That was encouraging, since I knew these people had no reason to lie to me.
That said, I was unfortunately unable to find answers to more specific questions that I had about the program before my purchase. I, personally, do not like spending my money unless I have a good idea about what I’m spending my money on. How could I tell Lean Belly apart from all the other fad diets and workouts out there?
I turned to looking into the creator of the Lean Belly Breakthrough program, Bruce Krahn.
I definitely wasn’t expecting someone so ripped. AND he has two sons! We’re peas in a pod! (Minus the abs, chest, Five o’clock shadow…)
It turns out that Bruce is a kind of famous. He’s a popular celebrity nutritionist and trainer, and has 15 years of working experience in the fitness industry. Some of his clients consist of Trish Stratus, Tom Cochrane, Nelly Furtado, and Criss Angel.
This also isn’t the first ebook he’s written, he also wrote the “Fat Fighter Diet” book, which is available on Amazon, but frankly never took off in popularity like the Lean Belly eBook did.
So, while Bruce Krahn definitely checks out, there’s no guarantee that his eBook would be good. Some personal trainers are best when they are just that… PERSONAL trainers. In person. But the only way to find out for sure would be the buy the eBook.
Here are questions I would have liked answered BEFORE I bought the ebook. I included answers I found after reading it myself.
What is the style of training in the Lean Belly program? ANSWER: It’s mostly a diet/nutrition focused program, although there are a few bonus exercise methods included. If you want to fix
How much experience is needed to the guide? ANSWER: None! This guide was made so that men and women over the age of fifty could follow it, so Bruce kept things simple and easy for them.
If I have blood sugar problems, will I be able to follow the program? ANSWER: Yes! In fact, Bruce even included a list of desserts that people with blood sugar problems can still indulge in. Overall it was very thoughtful.
I bought The Lean Belly Breakthrough. Here’s My Opinion:
After reading through various reviews and looking into the author’s background myself, I decided to buy the Lean Belly Breakthrough at the cheapest price I could find. There are two different programs for men and women, but they cost the same. I went with the women’s program – obviously!
Since this is a digital product, it was available immediately after purchase, which is a plus for me. I know some people prefer physical copies, but I don’t think there was one for this guide.
Overall, the book itself is very easy to understood and implement. The core of the concept is based on a 2 minute ritual that Bruce Kahn’s father-in-law learned after having a heart attack on a plane. The ritual was able to help his father lose 30 pounds in a single month – although I’m sure having a major heart issue while thousands of feet in the air provided him with a LOT of motivation.
So far, so good. I got a good sense of how exactly Kahn would have been motivated to create this book – to make sure that men and women who are prone to health issues are never in the same situation his father was. But, that’s just one piece of the puzzle. Does the Lean Belly Breakthrough actually work?
What’s in the Lean Belly Breakthrough?
Here’s a full list of everything I got once I purchased Bruce Krahn’s eBook.
- A list of “good foods” to eat that help your body metabolize fat and trigger hormones responsible for regulating fat storage, as well as a overall nutritional guide to improve my diet. Then, of course, a list of unhealthy food to avoid.
- A guide to desserts that people with blood sugar issues can still indulge in. Loved this.
- Warning signs of an oncoming heart attack.
- Dr. Heinrick’s 2 minute method to decrease fat around the body.
- A guide on how to best utilize your “sleeping” metabolism to facilitate weight loss – while you’re sleeping.
- The Belly-shred workout program and video, meant to be performed just once a day.

Should You Buy The Lean Belly Program?
Overall, I REALLY liked the program! I was impressed by how easy it was to understand and even easier to follow, and even though I don’t have a ton of time to dedicate to working out, it was very easy for me to keep up with the workout and changes.
One thing I noticed that Krahn didn’t really touch on was that I felt better mentally after implementing the diet changes, not just physically. My mood was better and my mind was sharper, and the people around me commented on it! I was no longer in the same funk I had been dwelling in.
I would absolute recommend that people try out the program. That said, I did have a few complaints.
Things I Didn’t Like About Lean Belly
First of all, it’s entirely a digital program. For me, this works fine, but I know not everyone is a fan of eBooks/PDFs. I’m disappointed that there wasn’t a physical option offered in any capacity, although I kind of understand. These are changing times.
Then, I think you really need to actually utilize the diet changes to see the best results. This is more of a diet than a workout, so don’t just depend on the exercise portion to lose weight! You need to do both, and you need to stick with it. If it helps, imagine how helpless Krahn’s father felt when he had a heart attack in a plane. You don’t ever want to be in that situation. It may be a little dark, but things like that help keep me motivated, and may work for you as well.
Those are my two main complaints. Overall, I definitely think this is a great program. If you’re STILL on the fence, I advise you to just check out his website at www.LeanBellyBreakthrough.com and see if you like his general style.
Concluding my Lean Belly Review
Overall, I think this is a great program, and I definitely feel like I got my money’s worth. I wanted to lose weight, but more than that, I wanted to change my whole lifestyle around. With the diet, the exercise, and the mental and physical benefits of the breakthrough program, I can say with confidence that I got exactly what I was looking for.
My weight is dropping, I’m excited to step on the scale on a weekly basis. I’ve grown calmer. I wake up full of energy. I no longer get brain fog after the middle of the day.
I’m LOVING this. If you’re ready to give it a shot, check out the program!
UPDATE – My Before and After Results!!
I’m back! It’s been a few months, but I wanted to give an update on how my transformation with the Lean Belly Breakthrough program has been.
After 6 months on Lean Belly, I’m down a total of 50 pounds. I’ve started adding more things to my daily routine, as it turns out I kind of love exercising, but I’m just so happy to have regained my body.
I don’t think I stalled at all on the journey – the weight just kept coming off. I know not EVERYONE can have this sort of success, but I can say with confidence the Lean Belly Breakthrough lead me here, and it MIGHT do the same for you. Just give it a chance, see if you can fall in love with the program like I did.
That’s all! Hopefully this post was useful for you, and if you want to try the program, head on over to www.LeanBellyBreakthrough.com. And Bruce – If you ever happen to find this review, THANK YOU. Your program changed my life around.
