BodyMedia GoWear Fit Armband Calorie Counter

When trying to lose weight fast (as I am right now) it's extremely important to keep track of calorie intake as well as calories burned. If you diet/cut calories while burning extra calories through intense exercise your body can actually burn a lot of fat really quickly. I came across the new BodyMedia GoWear Fit Armband calorie counter recently and I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy one. It measures how many steps you take each day (great for estimating calorie expenditure!) as well as how many overall calories you're burning at any given moment. Here's a nice review of the BodyMedia GoWear Fit:

BodyMedia's GoWear Fit Calorie Management System Review

The GoWear Fit is an electronic gadget which tracks how many steps you take (like an advanced pedometer) and how many calories you burn. You you wear it around your arm (it's comfortable and not noticeable under a shirt) all day (except when in the shower or when swimming, it is not waterproof.)

It can be synced up to your computer (via USB) so that you can see a detailed account of how many calories you are burning (and very interesingly when you are burning the most calories.) You can also keep track of how many calories you are consuming in the "calorie management" software. This is important as you need to be burning more calories than you are consuming in order to lose weight.

The system should be worn when you are sleeping and it will even give you interesting details on your sleeping habits (it will tell you how many hours you are actually sleep vs just laying in bed.)

What's the purpose of this gadget you may be wondering? How does it actually help you burn more calories so that you can lose weight fast? Well it doesn't directly burn any calories and it doesn't help you control your hunger or anything like that.

What it really gives you is information and information is power. You will see what activities help you burn the most calories and that should give you the motivation to do those high calorie burning activities more often.

And that may be the real key to this gadget. It's all about motivation (as well as accountability.) Every day you can shoot for burning more calories than you did the day before! If you start looking at your excercise routine in this way you are very likely to start losing weight quite quickly. The GoWear Fit is the recommended calorie counting device as it's very accurate and also relatively inexpensive (compared to it's competitors, specifically the Bodybugg.) -- http://www.myallnaturalweightloss.com/gowear-fit-calorie-management-system-has-arrived/993/

product is great as long as it works. I have owned two and gifted one. The minute you have a problem, you are in trouble. Their service and support are some of the worst i have ever experienced.
