Wear the diet belt it to track the inches you lose through dieting or the inches you add through breaking that diet. For better or for worse this belt will tell you how your circumference is changing. Unlike a significant other or friend who might wish to spare your feelings, the Diet Belt is as honest as it gets. And the nylon won’t stretch like leather, so you won’t need to worry about your measurements becoming inaccurate over time. (and if you don’t want to broadcast your width to the world, you can flip it inside out so your measurements are private!)
Maybe you don’t care about your waistline. Maybe you just need to measure stuff and don’t want a folded-up Ikea measuring tape in your wallet all the time. The Diet Belt has you covered.
Step 1: Tools + Materials
Step 2: Sew and Trim
Step 3: Sketch and Cut
Using a metal cutting wheel on a rotary tool the buckle face was cut along the sketch lines, then the sharp edges of the cut were smoothed.
Remember, this belt is reversible, so you don't have to advertise your dimensions to everyone if you don't want to. Also, you can be the only person outside of a carpenter that always carries around a tape measure. perfect for all the times you need to make quick measurements on the fly.
