New, One-of-a-Kind Pant Belt Helps Men and Women Watch Their Waistlines in Style!

The HB Health Belt Helps Wearers Keep Daily Track
of Their Waist Size—and Minimize Deadly Health Risks!

PORT JEFFERSON, NY – November 2, 2011 – For the majority of individuals today, the bathroom scale has the final word when it comes to determining fitness.  Yet according to a growing number of health experts, men and women should focus less on pounds as an indicator of health and more on the size of their midsection.  A new pant belt called the HB Health Belt™ is helping people do just that—and look stylish at the same time.

“While having an appropriate body weight is an important aspect of being healthy, it’s really only part of the story,” says John Connolly, founder of HB Health Belt, LLC. “A person’s waist size relates directly to their likelihood for developing a number of chronic health disorders. We developed the HB Health Belt to help people get a more complete picture of their health and be more proactive about minimizing their risks.”

In their best-selling book, You: On A Diet: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael F. Roizen warn that because of its close proximity to vital organs, belly fat is the most dangerous type of fat on the human body.  Increased waist size has been linked with a higher risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, and a host of other serious medical conditions affecting both men and women.  Dr. Oz suggests in his book that for optimum health, women should target a waist size no greater than 32 ½ inches, while men should aim for 35 inches or less.  

The HB Health Belt enables people to measure their waistline daily through the simple act of getting dressed. Although it appears on the outside to be an ordinary pant belt, the HB Health Belt has a hidden tape measure feature on its backing, adjacent to the belt holes.  The measurements shown correspond with color-coded general health indication zones, allowing wearers to instantly determine how their own waistline compares to recommended guidelines.  

Says Connolly, “There is a wide range of people who can benefit from the HB Health Belt, including people who have recently shed weight and want to maintain it or those who are actively working on weight loss.  It’s also ideal for individuals who need to stay in top shape for their jobs, such as military and law enforcement personnel.  At the end of the day, maintaining a healthy physique is about accountability.  The HB Health Belt makes you more aware of your body, and can really give you the motivation you need to make lifestyle changes that lead to greater health and longevity.”

The HB Health Belts are now on sale starting at $39.95 with a "Buy One Belt, Get One 50% Off!" promotion and come in various sizes and styles for both men and women. To learn more about the HB Health Belt and order online, please visit: HEALTHBELT.com
