21 Day Flat Belly Fix by Todd Lambs is yet another quick fat loss solution for those seeking to shed extra fat as fast as reasonably possible. The program claims to help you shed unwanted fat in as little as 21 days, plus a plethora of other beneficial side effects like higher metabolism, better sex life, higher energy levels, younger looking skin, a “thyroid accelerator” technique and many more such benefits.
We digged down to find out what the plan is all about, as the program seems to make many positive claims and offers some alleged scientific back up to support them, particularly in regard to Capsaicin.
Without further ado, here is what we found out.
Suitable For Whom?
Ideally this is a plan for those seeking a fast solution to fat loss. However, fast and well do not usually go well hand in hand. While getting lean in two, three or four weeks is a highly coveted dream for many, a better solution remains always a complete overhaul of life style and nutritional habits for the long run.
Still, the program may offer a viable blueprint for the first part of a weight loss journey to be taken further. What is interesting is how the author claims to help you shed 23 pounds in 21 day without exercising hard or being in a restrictive calorie deficit.
This is quite unusual by Todd Lambs, especially considering his military, SWAT background. His other programs SpeForce Alpha and Specforce Abs do provide solid blueprints to working out as part of body weight management.
According to him, he stumbled upon an unexpected solution to quick and effortless fat loss thanks to a chance close encounter with pepper spray during one of his SWAT missions. LOL….
How Does It Work Exactly? The Capsaicin Theory
This is the catchy theory behind the program. Realizing that capsaicin helps increase body temperature, he sought to find out a way to turn up the body metabolism and its fat burning capabilities without the nasty side effects of capsaicin, and found the solution.
He allegedly found proof to back up his claims in a study from Hokkaido University Graduate School of Medicine, though no link is offered to such a study and the study itself is based on rats, not humans.
Nevertheless, the positive benefits of capsaicin purported by Todd are a bit overblown, because it also comes with many nasty side effects. The solution? A specially concocted tea recipe, a secret spice to weight loss with all the benefits of pepper capsicum without the nasty side effects.
Why then not just eat your regular meals with some nice, good old fashioned cayenne pepper ground on top? To be honest, it sounds more like marketing hype than anything else.
Leptin And Insulin
But the program is not just about special tea or cayenne pepper. It also delves into relevant topics like leptin and insulin, two of the most important hormones responsible for fat loss.
This part of the program is more convincing and up to good standards, particularly regarding leptin sensitivity, a hotly debated topic for female weight loss that has been successfully used for female-only weight loss programs like Thin From Within or VFX Body.
For men, the author delves into the beneficial properties of turmeric, and this is one of the reasons you are met with turmeric extract upsells during the purchase phase of the program, which you can bypass anyway.
Other upsells include a recipe cookbook, a cardio guide and a membership trial. Aside from some good but basic information on these topics plus the 3 bonuses described below, which come included in the price, that’s about it for the program.
Endocrine Nervous And Energy Systems
The author then goes on discussing the nervous system and the endocrine system and how they affect hunger and your fat loss process and how to cause your body to burn fat for energy rather than sugars, all solid and timeless information.
What About Workouts?
Diet alone will take you down your fat loss journey if you are disciplined enough to stick to the plan, but exercising also contributes to speedier results as well as to a healthy cardio vascular system and better overall fitness.
Flat Belly Fix does contains a workout protocol with pictures and tutorial videos to go along, but they are pretty basic without delving on how these particular exercises may be effective for fat loss.
Basically, there is no workout information in the plan that you could not get free from some YouTube channel or websites. This program is more about the nutritional aspect of weight loss.
21 Day Flat Belly Fix Components
The plan is digital, coming with 1 main manual plus 3 bonuses. These are electronic books which you can read right away upon purchase after clicking through a download link. These eBooks are smartphone, tablet and PC compatible. They are:

- 1 Bonus 7-Minute Flat Belly Protocol – A no “sit ups” abs workout from his 17 years experience in the police force.

Todd Lambs’ Credentials
Todd Lamb is a former police officer and a SWAT Team leader and tactical fitness consultant who has also served in the Canadian Armed Forces . Being in top shape is the basic ability that his life style requires which means he has the right knowledge to pass onto people who are tired from working out but still cannot display a fit, low fat, muscular physique.
Overall, 21 Day Flat Belly Fix is an OK program that does offer some value but it is not the best fat loss program around. Some of the information on leptin, insulin and the endocrine system is sound but other parts like the Capsaicin theory and the secret tea formula that replicates the properties of cayenne pepper without the side effects is a bit over-blown.
To sum up, Flat Belly Fix is a legitimate product by a known author that has produced excellent plans before like Specforce Alpha or Specforce Abs, both in the workout and fitness range, but it fails to stand up to the same high standards as far as weight loss is concerned.
