About Lean Belly Breakthrough
Did you just spend an hour (or more!) watching the promo video for Lean Belly Breakthrough? If so, here’s what you probably know at this point:
According to Bruce Krahn, his Lean Belly Breakthrough program delivers scientifically proven methods that can help you lose 1 pound of belly fat per day, with just 2 minutes of work.
Bruce tells us that Lean Belly Breakthrough can also help reverse the symptoms of heart disease and diabetes, improve skin and joint elasticity, restore youthful energy and libido, and even reverse the painful symptoms of arthritis. In fact, he claims the program will literally help you feel decades younger.
Instead of taking prescription medications, undergoing strenuous workouts, or buying special gadgets though, lean Belly Breakthrough is supposed to work using only all natural ingredients and body movements you can implement in the comfort of your own home. And Bruce claims everything is laid out in simple, step-by-step instructions.
The Lean Belly Breakthrough promises to have helped more than 100,000 men and women of all ages get to the root cause of their belly fat, heart disease, and diabetes. All for “pennies per week” and in less than 2 minutes per day.
Now, although we’re told about many of the potential benefits provided by the Lean Belly Breakthrough program, we’re not told exactly how you’ll go about achieving them. So, to start answering your important questions, let’s tackle this topic first.
A Quick Primer on Belly Fat, Heart Disease, and Diabetes
Belly fat (scientifically known as visceral fat) forms just like most other fat in our body; excess glucose is stored in specialized fat cells for later use. Then, if we continuously consume more calories than we expend, this fat (whether around the midsection or elsewhere) continues to grow.
The especially pernicious problem with visceral fat is that it releases cytokines, which can greatly increase the chance of cardiovascular (heart) disease, boost your chances of acquiring diabetes, raise your blood pressure and bad (LDL) cholesterol, and more. In other words, some potentially serious side effects.
But what, exactly, does the Lean Belly Breakthrough program use to address this?
How Does Lean Belly Breakthrough Work?
Despite its excessive length, the “how Lean Belly Breakthrough works” question is never answered in their video. After picking up quick nuggets of information here and there though, it seems you’ll implement a few “simple foods, herbs, and spices,” combined with 5 specific natural body movements “performed in a very specific fashion.”
Using these foods and movements, we’re told that Lean Belly Breakthrough guarantees you’ll lose at least 10% body fat loss in just the first 2 weeks. Given that the average person has between 18% and 31% body fat, this amounts to a fairly significant loss in just 14 days.
However, there are two main problems with the program’s claims:
Problem #1: Safe, Healthy Weight Loss
First, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention claims that losing 1-2 pounds per week is considered healthy and ideal for long-term results. Anything more than this might be considered a “crash” diet, which most physicians recommend avoiding.
Why? Losing weight at a faster rate isn’t exactly healthy for your body, and it’s definitely not sustainable. So, while crash diets might help you quickly look good for that upcoming beach vacation, in all likelihood you’ll soon regain the weight—and then some.
Problem #2: It’s Not Possible to Lose Only Belly Fat
Instead of crash diets, the only tried-and-true methods of losing weight and keeping it off are diet and exercise. But even then, you’ll lose fat at around the same rate all over your body.
In other words, spot fat loss is a myth; you can’t lose fat only—or even mostly—in your belly.
How Much Does Lean Belly Breakthrough Cost?
The Lean Belly Breakthrough e-book is priced at $37. This means that you’ll be able to download the material as soon as your payment is processed, but it also means that you will not receive a hard copy in the mail.
Like all products sold through Clickbank (an online retailer that specializes in these kinds of e-books), Lean Belly Breakthrough comes with a 60-day refund policy. In our experience, if you’re looking for a quick refund, it’s often best to call Clickbank directly at 800-390-6035, versus trying to reach out to the e-book’s author.
Does Lean Belly Breakthrough Have Any Customer Reviews?
Over the years, the HighYa team has reviewed dozens of e-books just like Lean Belly Breakthrough. Whether it’s diabetes in Diabetes Free, hearing in the Navajo Restore My Hearing System, eyesight with the Perfect Vision System, or anything else, they all tend to revolve around “simple” diet tips that can effortlessly cure problems that have plagued mankind for millennia.
Even if we were to overlook the fact that—like Lean Belly Breakthrough—we’re never told exactly how these programs work, we’d still be left with the reality that they almost universally come with poor customer feedback.
Specifically, they don’t deliver on their lofty promises, and most of the information they contain can be found elsewhere online, for free.
Bottom Line: Will Lean Belly Breakthrough Help You Reach Your Weight Loss Goals?
First, let us be the first to say “congratulations!” for exploring ways to improve your health and lose weight. Often times, taking this first step is the biggest obstacle to overcome in your journey.
The thing is that when taking this step, you want to make sure you put your best foot forward to maximize your chances for success. And considering its overhyped sales video, lack of usable information, medically inaccurate promises (e.g. losing a pound per day, spot fat loss around the belly), and relatively high price, we think your money would be better spent making an appointment with your doctor, hiring a physical trainer, and/or speaking with a professional nutritionist.
What about Dr. Heinrick, the German doctor, you ask? Just like Bruce Krahn and everything else involved in the Lean Belly Breakthrough story, it seems he’s wholly fictional.

Lean Belly Breakthrough
This afternoon (April 17, 2017) I listened to about an hour of presentation on the Lean Belly Breakthrough. My credit card was confirmed, and I was given access to a download of a 39-page manual. I tried to print the pages, got the cover page, and that was it. I accidentally deleted my paid confirmation notice from the publisher (?). I have no way to contact them or Bruce Krahn. Can you help me get in touch with him, or the whoever is publishing this is?
I would appreciate your help. Thank you very much!

Enormous complexity and cost.
OK, so I was taken in by the insinuation that I could lose weight with a 2-minute ritual of taking an insulin boosting simple cheap drink each morning.
In fact, what you have is a complex dietary and exercise program, and many of the ingredients are simply unavailable in Europe.
I am sure that if you follow this complex regime and are able to procure the ingredients, you will lose weight, but as for a simple morning drink that boosts the pancreas and kick starts enormous weight loss - forget it. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
