Q. How does The Portion Controller™ work?

A. Most medical studies have indicated that it is not necessarily what we eat that causes weight gain, but the amount. The scientifically-designed, patented Portion Controller™ allows you to feel pleasantly full and helps to prevent overeating and stretching of the stomach. Designed with lap band surgery in mind, the belt works in a similar manner. It compresses the stomach to instantly “shrink” it, without the wearer having to undergo any dangerous or irreversible procedures. The Portion Controller™ helps you feel fuller more quickly, allowing you to eat smaller portions.

Q. How do you lose weight with The Portion Controller™?

A. You will eat a lot less than you normally would and your body will start burning the excess fat naturally.

Q. How is The Portion Controller™ worn? Is it comfortable?

A. Concealed under clothing, the non-electric Portion Controller™ is placed on in the morning before breakfast and removed for showers and before bedtime. It must be fitted one fingertip above the navel to be effective and comfortable. If it is uncomfortable, you may have put it on incorrectly. It is recommended that you purchase two belts, so that you can alternate wear each day.

Q. Do I need to be on a diet; eat any diet foods or take supplements; or follow any workout routine?

A. No. With The Portion Controller™, you are able to eat all the foods you normally would, but will find that you don’t need to eat as much as you have in the past. While light exercise is always recommended, it is not required to lose weight while wearing The Portion Controller™. Daily walks at the beach or shopping mall will be adequate.

Q. Are there any side effects?

A. There are virtually no side effects, as the belt can easily be removed at any time.

Q. Can children wear The Portion Controller™?

A. With supervision, children as young as six can wear The Portion Controller™. The earlier they start, the less stretching and damage will be done to the stomach.

Q. Does the product have any wires? Is it electric?

A. The Portion Controller™ has no wires and is not electric. It is a fabric belt that feels similar to an Ace bandage.

Q. This product sounds too good to be true. Is it?

A. Try it for 30 days. You can always return it for a full refund if you are not satisfied. The scientifically-designed belt must be placed exactly one finger width above the navel and at a proper tightness. It works almost instantly.

Q. Will private insurance or medicare/medicaid cover the cost or help pay for some of the cost?

A. Medicare and Medicaid will cover the cost for the belt. Most commercial or private insurance companies will cover the belt for obesity.

Q. How do I find out if my insurance company would cover the cost or help pay for some of the cost?

A. You would have to call your insurance company and ask them if they will cover it.

Q. How do I order one?

A. National callers may order the Portion Controller™ below.

Q. When will my package be delivered?
