The Claim

A video on social media is circulating which is showing a process to make a substance using a candle that can melt your belly fat in one day without diet and exercise.

Fact Check

How can body fat be reduced?

Fat can be reduced by eating a balanced diet with fiber and protein. One should also avoid alcohol, processed foods, sugar, high-fat food items.

Physical activities such as exercise, strength training, swimming will help in reducing fat. Research states that a type of belly fat referred to as visceral fat is a major risk factor for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions. Hence, one must try to lose extra fat and keep the BMI (Body Mass Index) in proportion.

Can you melt belly fat with candle wax in one day?

No. There is no research that shows any efficiency of fat reduction through melted candles and any homemade recipe with it. Fat reduction can only be achieved naturally by weight loss through physical activity and a well-balanced calorie-deficit diet. Also, weight loss can’t be specific to a region, the whole body loses weight altogether, even though the visible differences can slightly vary.

Lastly, it is not possible to melt or reduce fat in one day naturally. It is a gradual process that takes a lot of effort and time. Hence, the claim is false.
