Introduction

As we all know, having an uncontrollable appetite can make sticking to a diet basically impossible; battling constant cravings for food can be an uphill battle – you’re doomed to fail 9 times out of 10. While appetite suppressing products are certainly nothing new, Flat Tummy Co have brought a pretty unique product to market – appetite suppressing lollipops. Is reducing that rumble in your tummy as easy as sucking on a lollipop?

In this Flat Tummy Lollipops review, we’re taking a look at what we believe consumers can realistically expect from this weight loss product.

What Are Flat Tummy Lollipops?

Flat Tummy Lollipops are self-proclaimed appetite suppressants created by a weight loss brand named Flat Tummy Co (previously know as Flat Tummy Tea). At the time of writing this article, the company holds a rating of D- on the Better Business Bureau and currently has 9 customer complaints filed against them – all of which have been resolved.

This product is currently only available via the official Flat Tummy Lollipops manufacturer website. At the time of writing this article, we could not locate it stocked in stores or on Amazon.

As the name suggests, the Flat Tummy appetite suppressing lollipops are targeted towards those who are looking to lose weight, or more specifically, those who are struggling with controlling their appetite levels. The company has recently come under fire for using celebrity Kim Kardashian West to promote the product – critics arguing that the company are targeting vulnerable and impressionable youngsters.

The Flat Tummy Lollipops contain a branded saffron extract named Satiereal, and are intended to be used twice daily to induce the appetite-suppressing effects. Rather than being marketed as a “miracle” weight loss product, Flat Tummy advise that consumers only use the product to control the appetite between healthy meals.

One pack of Tummy Tummy Lollipops contains 30 servings (60 lollipops) and costs $49.00 – this places the cost per lollipop around $0.81.

Does Flat Tummy Lollipops Work?

Based on our research into this product, we believe that it may be useful for weight loss if used correctly, however, based on the backlash the company have gotten from marketing this product, it is highly obvious that many people have gotten the wrong idea about the lollipops.

Firstly, to set your expectations about this product – it is by no means a miracle weight loss product. It doesn’t contain any ingredients that “burn fat”, nor is it going to boost your energy levels or metabolic rates.

When compared to other appetite suppressant products on the market, the Flat Tummy Lollipops are a reasonably basic formulation (unsurprising based on the chosen delivery method – a lollipop). The formula only contains one active ingredient – a saffron extract named Satiereal.

This ingredient is certainly nothing new – it’s been available for a long while now, typically in capsule-form. The study conducted into Satiereal has shown that 176.5mg per day can help contribute towards weight loss over a period of 8 weeks, when used in conjunction with a low calorie diet. As each lollipop contains 88.25mg of Satiereal, you’ll need to be sucking on these lollipops for a period of 56 days, while keeping your calories low, in order to possibly see weight loss results.

The study concluded that it can be helpful for reducing appetite levels, but it’s not a guaranteed effect for every single person who consumes Satiereal, so keep that in mind!

The Pros & Cons Of Flat Tummy Lollipops

Below we have made a list of what we believe are the main positive and negative points:

The Pros

  • Contains Satiereal which has a study showing it can help reduce appetite when used for 8 weeks.
  • Good for those who can’t take pills or capsules.

The Cons

  • Product doesn’t contain any ingredients that directly and independently “burn body fat”.
  • Approximately 176mg of Satiereal per day is required for the desired effects to happen – as each lollipop contains 88.25mg, you’ll need to consume two pops per day.
  • Each lollipop contains 35 calories, which means you’ll be intaking 70 calories per day – not desirable when you’re trying to lower your daily intake.
  • Studies show that Satiereal must be used for a period of 8 weeks for weight loss results to occur.

Our Final Verdict On Flat Tummy Lollipops

To conclude our Flat Tummy Lollipops review, it’s a bit of a mixed bag – there are things that we like about it and things that we aren’t too blown away by.

Firstly, if we take the study on the main ingredient inside this product at face value, then consuming 176.5mg of the substance daily may help lower your appetite levels – though it is entirely independent on the individual and will absolutely not work for 100% of users.

Remember, the product is by no means a miracle cure for obesity; it is certainly not going to melt away your excess body fat.. it may simply just lower your appetite. If you’re still eating more calories than your body requires (i.e. consuming a caloric surplus), you’ll still continue to gain or maintain weight – for best results you should view this product as a helping hand and use it in conjunction with a low calorie diet and well-rounded exercise regime.
