Fast Abs

Wouldn’t we all love a quick fix for flabby abs? Fast Abs—and its not-so-distant cousins the Ab Sonic, Ab Tronic, and Ab Energizer—claim to build muscle and reduce body fat by electrically stimulating the muscles with a massage belt worn around the middle.

As much as we’d like to sit still and jiggle away the pounds, a 2002 study failed to show that electrical muscle stimulation has these desired effects.

Even if a few calories are burned by electrical stimulation, that doesn’t result in fat melting off of one particular area.
