Most of us want to lose fat and keep it off.
So when a new weight-loss program like Lean Belly Breakthrough comes a-knockin’ at our door to sell us a sexy body, it’s SO easy to take the bait.
“Just do this two-minute ritual and watch the fat melt away!"
But. . . what if?
What if there was a health hack (in this case engineered by a German doctor) that actually worked to blast away our belly fat?
Is it possible?
I mean, don’t we need exercise and a healthy diet to truly lose weight and become our best selves?
Well the short answer is YES!
Diet and exercise are the key to losing weight.
But there’s a longer answer too. . .
You see, if you’ve got diet and exercise under control, you just might benefit from a weight loss program like Lean Belly Breakthrough.
So let’s break it down and see if it’s worth it to help you to burn fat fast.
What is the Lean Belly Breakthrough Secret?
I recently came across this sales page for Lean Belly Breakthrough, and my curiosity got the best of me.
The page is extremely looooong (and used-car-salesman-sleazy), so I went ahead and distilled it down to everything you need to know about Lean Belly Breakthrough.
Boom! The moment you hit the page, you see their “promise” emblazoned across the top.
Then it goes into a (real or totally fake?) story of this guy’s father-in-law, Dan, who had a heart attack on a plane, which somehow lead him to a medical doctor in Germany and the discovery of a “2-Minute Ritual."
Dan got some serious weight-loss wisdom from the German doctor, applied it to his life, and supposedly lost 9 pounds of belly fat in just 3 days. . . and then another 30 pounds one month later.
Just when the sales page was getting good, they hit us with some horrendous copywriting.
Seriously, have a look, it reads like one of those super-scammy emails from a “Nigerian Prince."
But we’ll let it slide. Because the promise is just too good.
They say you can burn a pound of fat every single day with. . .
- No strenuous exercise
- No pricey supplements
- No special gadgets
And best of all, it’s “scientifically proven” to work, although they don’t exactly share this “science."
Meet Bruce Krahn, the guy who created Lean Belly Breakthrough. . .
The sales page says Bruce is the trainer of celebrities like Nelly Furtado and Criss Angel.
But wait a tick.
How do we know this is legit and not some BS sales copy?
Well, I did a little investigative work, which led me to this page. . .
OK Bruce, you’re a real dude. We’ll give you that.
And apparently a pretty solid trainer.
But what results can we realistically expect from your Lean Belly program?
He says, “When combined with 5 specific natural body movements we have proven this breakthrough can. . .
- Prevent arteriosclerosis
- Prevent lower blood pressure
- Reverse diabetes
- Improve circulation while causing rapid fat loss — especially from the abdominal area — at a rate of one pound per day."
And while Bruce has packaged and is now marketing the actual program, the “wisdom” itself is the brainchild of none other than. . .
Drum roll please. . .
Dr. Heinrick! (Pictured below)
We’ll talk more about this (non) fella in a bit, but for now, just know that Bruce got a hold of this “secret” that saved his father-in-law’s life, and was inspired to make the Lean Belly Breakthrough program that:
- Outlines the simple ritual and lists of foods
- Includes the list of a dozen natural herbs and spices and nutrients that work to ‘eliminate the underlying cause of diabetes, heart disease and even arthritis.’
- Reveals a list of heart-attack warning signs
- Shows foods that can trigger a heart attack at any time
- Includes a day-to-day blueprint to turn on “dead” metabolisms
- And a bonus “special” ritual to help burn fat
Alright, before we move on, I just have to share one last image from the Lean Belly Breakthrough sales page.
You know, for shits and gigs.
I’m sorry, but I literally laughed out loud when I saw this.
You had me at “TOP SECRET!" 😉
How does Lean Belly Breakthrough work?
Unfortunately, the sales page gives *very* little info about how it actually works.
So I bought the product myself to try it out for you guys.
Once I go through the program, I’ll circle back to this and update with my personal experience.
But I did look through the materials, and here is my understanding of the Lean Belly Breakthrough program and how it might (or might not) help us to burn fat and lose weight fast.
Lean Belly works by leveraging a very unusual trifecta of:
- Special foods
- Herbs and spices
- And 5 natural body movements
According to the sales page. . .
Wait. . . does this sound like the fabled ‘Fountain of Youth’ or what?
Once you purchase the program, you get immediate access to the following:
- Belly fat melting rituals
- Emergency Fat Loss Guide
- Diabetes and heart disease reversing recipes
- Easy to follow heart attack prevention method
- Delicious metabolism boosting meal plan
- Detailed instructional videos
- and more
Lean Belly Breakthrough order process
As you get deeper and deeper into the sales page, you’ll see two different Call-to-Actions.
One for men, and the other for women.
Click on either and it’ll take you to this sales order page. . .
Once you fill out the order form, get ready for an upsell extravaganza.
Yup, they try to upsell you like crazy.
Welcome to upsell #1
It’s for 2 Minute Lean Belly Smoothies, Recipes & and Video Coaching Lessons. Who doesn’t love a good smoothie?
Needless to say, I couldn’t help myself, and I went for this upsell.
Supposedly, there’s over 100 belly-fat burning smoothie recipes in this “VIP” upsell.

Introducing upsells #2 and #3
I wasn’t very excited about these next two upsells, so I didn’t buy them.
And I won’t bore you too much about the details.
But in the second upsell, the folks at Lean Belly offer you a “Hormone-balancing handbook." They say it’s a $45 value, but are willing to let it go at $25. How generous.
And the third upsell allows you to become a card-carrying member of the Lean Belly Breakthrough Success Academy.This gets you:

You get a lifetime membership to the Success Academy, a $147 value for only $15. I thought it was too good to be true, so I passed.
Finally, once they’re done selling you everything but the kitchen sink, you now have access to the Lean Belly Breakthrough digital downloads. . .
What’s in the Lean Belly Digital Downloads?
Those nifty spiral-bound books that you get. . . yeah you actually don’t get those.Instead, these books are only available in digital download. Yup, it’s a PDF!
The old bait and switch.
Anyhow, here are the downloads in a nutshell:
- Main manual – Lean Belly Breakthrough
- Tracking Sheets
- Libido-boosting foods
- Fat-burning desserts
- Emergency fat-loss guide
- Body fat and hormones
- Recipes and metabolism boosting meal plans
These are pretty self-explanatory, so I’m not going to dive deep into them.
But after skimming through the material, I can honestly say that nothing here is groundbreaking.
Not even close.
In fact, one of the daily rituals is “floss your teeth."
I kid you not. Floss your teeth! What are we in grade school again?
The rest of the info throughout the downloads seems to be general health tips and tricks, which you can get anywhere online. . . for free.
Alright, who is this Dr. Heinrick?
Will the real Dr. Heinrick please stand up?
Good ol’ Dr. Heinrick is the mastermind behind the Lean Belly Breakthrough.
Remember, he was the German doc who revealed his weight-loss secrets to Bruce’s in-laws.
But. . . is Dr. Heinrick a real dude?
Well, if he really is as amazing as Bruce makes him out to be, you’d think he’d be all over the internet.
Or at least somewhere on the internet.
But alas, he’s nowhere to be found. 🙁 And I’m still searching for Dr. Heinrick.
So either a.) Bruce did us dirty, OR b.) there’s a world-class doctor somewhere out there with the most amazing credentials but with ZERO internet clout. Which is more likely?
I’ll leave that judgement to you.
User reviews of Lean Belly Breakthrough
The user reviews for Lean Belly Breakthrough are all over the map.
Some say it’s a scam, while others praise the real breakthroughs they’ve experienced.
The tough part is knowing which to believe.
Obviously, the creator of the program, Bruce Krahn, has his own video that pops up first in the YouTube search. . .
But you’ll want to look past these blatant advertisements to see what people really think about the program.
This next one is an objective, unbiased review from a young guy who purchased the program and was extremely disappointed.
Here’s why. . .
He searched high and low through the Lean Belly Breakthrough materials, and nowhere did he find the 2-minute ritual.
You know, the 2-minute ritual that the ENTIRE program is supposedly built upon!
Now, this next one below isn’t a review at all, just some guy showing some extremely basic stretches, which I guess are the super secret special “movements” in the program.
He’s obviously just trying to sell the product.
I was unable to find a single person who genuinely went through the whole program and had good (or bad) things to say about it.
But again, bookmark this page, as I plan on going through the program in its entirety and filling you in on my experience soon.
Where can I buy it?
As far as I know, you can only buy Lean Belly Breakthrough on the program’s sales page.
If you search for it on Amazon, you get random booklets that are not made by Bruce himself.
Also, don’t mistake Lean Belly Breakthrough for Lean Belly Prescription.
They’re two totally different products/programs.
How much does it cost?
The $297 value for Lean Belly is sold for one low-price of $27. And. . . you get what you pay for.
That’s if you don’t spring for those juicy upsells, which total about $100 when all is said and done.
Is there a guarantee?
Yep, there is.Which is definitely a saving grace of the Lean Belly Breakthrough program.
If you buy it and don’t get the results, or you think it’s totally bogus and not worth the money, just get your money back.
No questions asked.
Or, as the sales page sells it: “Your tiny investment today is backed by a 100% 60-Day Money-Back Guarantee."
Run for the hills. Kidding.
I suppose if you really followed everything in the digital downloads, you’ll probably see weight-loss results.
The information in the Lean Belly Breakthrough program isn’t necessarily bad, it’s just so general that you could find it anywhere, for free.
So why pay $27?
Also, Bruce tells us to “Do this 2-minute ritual to lose 1 pound of belly fat every day." But he doesn’t share anything that could possibly bring about those results that only takes two stinkin’ minutes a day.So that’s a bit disappointing.
But with that said, I never thought for a second that a 2-minute ritual could do much of anything when it comes to burning fat and losing weight.
I’m a firm believer that it takes a holistic lifestyle overhaul to get real results.
This means adequate exercise, healthy eating habits, and potentially the use of weight-loss supplements.
But two minutes?
Finally, the bill of goods he sells is based 100% on some German doctor’s teachings.
But if you recall, we couldn’t find Dr. Heiny anywhere. Does he even exist?
If he doesn’t, then the whole program folds like a house of cards.
My final verdict: It’s a no-go.
But again, I’m gonna go through the program and circle back to tell you all about my experience, good or bad.
