A daily calorie counter makes it easier lose weight
An automatic daily calorie counter would be a great tool to have in your weight loss program. You strap it on and it would help you count the calories you eat and burn. Right now, thereís an electronic daily calorie counter being used in many fitness centers around the United States. Want to know how to get one to use for yourself?
I think most people realize by now that the only way to lose weight the healthy way is to balance good nutrition and exercise.
The weight loss equation never changes. Nutritionists say that you must create a calorie deficit in order to lose weight. Calories in have to be less than calories out. It is my opinion that if you have certain health problems, it can affect whether that weight loss equation works properly. An example would be someone who suffers from hypothyroidism.
Assuming you are in good health, to lose weight effectively, you need to track the calories you are taking in and taking out. But how do you do that? You can start by simply writing down what you eat and how many calories are in the food you eat. But writing all that down can become very time-consuming.
Keeping track of calories is what has made the weight watchers program so successful. But even using their points system can still be pretty tedious for some people.
Counting calories that you burn - the other side of the equation - can be just as hard to figure out. Itís easy enough to count how many calories you burn exercising but itís the other calories you use through normal everyday activities like eating, sleeping and breathing thatís hard to figure out. (By the way, thatís called your BMR Ėbasal metabolic rate.)
A tool like this sure would make weight loss a lot easier as long as you know how to do simple math.
The automatic daily calorie counter Iíve heard about is called a ďbody bugĒ that you strap on your arm and it monitors how many calories you take in through food and how many calories you use through daily activities. Itís very helpful but so far as I know, the only place you can get it is through fitness centers that provide it as part of a weight loss program.
Coming in September, youíll be able to purchase the body bug without having to enroll in an expensive weight loss program at your local gym. Right now, I donít really know anything about how the body bug works other than what Iíve just told you but if youíd like more information (it wonít be until after September 9, 2007), just fill out the form below and I will contact you when I find out more.
