Apparently he was seriously overweight, and his doctor was warning him that he was pre-diabetic and was unlikely to see his sixtieth birthday – even though Josh never told us how old he was at the time.
But by the kind of magic coincidence usually found in bedtime fairy stories and website sales pages like this one, he just happened to run into an established weight loss expert (who just happened to have published several guides on exactly that subject) right when he needed one most, and between them they developed Josh’s Flat Belly Detox guide, available from ClickBank via many, many affiliate online retailers.
Flat Belly Detox is a very, very long sales page that tries to lure you in and purchase the e-book. The first part involves missing out on breakfast and instead making up a simple energy booster mix before a gentle – and voluntary – workout on an otherwise empty stomach.
The second part has to do with creating lunches that promote the benefits of three separate food groups: proteins, fruits, and vegetables and healthy fats.
The third part focuses on “Soup Detox Dinners”, created according to the recipes supplied with Flat Belly Detox.
There are very few that we can think of, as so much depends on how committed you are to stick to the food menus and mini-workouts for however long it takes for their results to start showing. The only real potential side effects would either be impatience or disappointment.
It’s a download available for $37.00 from the ClickBank sales page. It could be that like other ClickBank products, the price you see first might be somewhat higher than that $37.00, but as soon as it looks like you’re clicking away from the sales page you’ll find yourself being presented with a discount. This has been known to happen more than once before you leave the page, usually with notice that says something like “Are you sure you want to leave? Stay on this page for a discount”.
Budget for $37.00 and if the price drops below that, well, you’ve saved yourself a few dollars.
What we found just a little bit strange as we worked our way down that ten-thousand-plus-word sales page was there was an awful lot about weight gain due to insulin resistance, but not a single word about weight gain due to eating too much and exercising too little.
A certain Dr Sidyq makes a sudden appearance in the web page headlines, when we’re promised we’ll meet him again in much more detail, but we never do. As we progress down that sales page, we notice the writer and/or the proofreader getting more and more tired, with other little mistakes creeping in like differing versions of how much weight was lost, and how long it all took.
OK, so web pages are meant to be skimmed, but it did make us wonder how precise and accurate the Flat Belly Detox guide is going to be if it had been written and proofread by the same people. Let’s just say we are not optimistic.
That’s the printed word dealt with, but there are videos involved as well. Unfortunately there are problems with most of those videos, in that they’re for streaming rather than downloading. So if you’re trying to follow a workout video on a weak wi-fi signal, you might not find it that easy. It’s possible to download videos from that particular website, but it can be a bit of a hassle to do so, and it’s not exactly legal.
And as for the video that leaps onto your computer screen when you’re trying to leave the sales page, well, if you’ve got 50 minutes of your life to spare – and that you don’t want to get back – you’re more than welcome to watch it. It’s uploaded by Josh’s weight loss coach, and has a completely different theme and sales pitch to the words we read previously on the sales page. This time it starts by tugging at your heartstrings by talking about being bullied as a child because of your size, just like the sales page did. But then unlike the sales page, it segues straight into talking about a white coffee detox in the morning. And that’s the first we’ve ever heard – or read – of that.
All in all, the quality of both the promotional words and the promotional video make us doubt the quality of the words and videos that make up the finished product, so we’re going to play it safe and say we do not recommend Flat Belly Detox to our readers.

We wondered whether Josh Houghton could be found elsewhere on the web, as in on Facebook or Instagram, where a lot of supplements and related products are marketed these days. We looked, and looked, and looked, but there was no trace of Josh.
Maybe he’d feature in any of Coach Derek “Weight Loss Whisperer” Wahler’s other products, like “Flat Belly Flush”, “Morning Burn System”, “Fat Shrinking Signal” or “10 Minute Fat Loss”, but we couldn’t find a single trace of Josh, the person who’d said – in so many words – that he wanted to get this lifesaving information out to as many people as possible.
Call us cynical, but it’s far too easy for us to think that Josh might just be a figment of a marketer’s imagination, and that the marketer in question might just be working for the Weight Loss Whisperer himself.
Whether Josh exists or not, his Flat Belly Detox system itself revolves around missing out on breakfast and instead creating a simple concoction out of ingredients that can be found in any kitchen, and then doing a small and sweat-free four-minute exercise to start burning off that fat.
And if that small, short, sweat-free exercise proves too much for a user, then an email to the author will result in some smaller, shorter, and simpler sweat-free exercises arriving in their inbox – even though the sales page tells everyone those exercises are purely voluntary anyway.
Read through the main PDF and bonus bedtime belly-buster PDF, follow the simple instructions there, and stick to the recipes and meal plans.
Then there’s the meal plans, which emphasize three different types of food at lunchtime, and soup in the evenings.
Let’s not forget, as well, the two fruits users should definitely avoid. Josh brings that subject up several times in his sales page, to keep building up on our curiosity. What could those fruits be? We’ll never know – unless we spend $37 to find out. And we’d rather keep our money. Besides, the video says there’s actually five fruits to steer clear of.
We’re told Flat Belly Detox flushes the body of harmful toxins, burns off over a pound of fat (1.2 pounds, we’re told) each and every day, and those recipes don’t just do you good – they taste great as well.
For those with the patience to keep with both the exercise plan and the meal plan, there’s a very good chance that the reduced calorie intake could help with some aspects of weight loss. But it’s a question of how long it’s going to take for any results to start showing.
Since everybody’s different, it’s unrealistic to expect identical results in identical time periods, so all we can say is there might be a chance that this will work as described, but there might not.
Apparently not – but there’s always the possibility of an allergic reaction to one of the simple kitchen ingredients that make up Flat Belly Detox’s morning energy booster mix. But you won’t know that until you find out what those ingredients are.

Most of the reviews we’ve seen come from affiliate marketers, all trying to earn a commission by selling Flat Belly Detox.
So of course, they’re very, very positive.
As for genuine reviews from customers, that’s a different matter.
We checked Amazon, our go-to-site for more realistic customer reviews, but even though a search for “flat belly” and “flat belly detox” turned up many results, none of them had anything to do with Josh and Coach Derek.
It’s possible there are some genuine reviews for Flat Belly Detox, but after looking for a long time and not finding any we’re going to say it’s not very likely.
There is a generous 60-day money-back guarantee – just email the author for a refund, no questions asked. At least, that’s what it says on the sales page. If for any reason that doesn’t work, you could always try contacting ClickBank direct.
It’s a ClickBank product, so you can go to their website and buy Flat Belly Detox directly from there, but more likely you’ll find yourself sent there by one of the many affiliates you’ll see on Google when you search for this product.
