Fitbit

I found a handy pocket personal trainer, a small pocket size object that I carry with me that tracks my steps taken and estimates my  calories burned.  There is a software program it syncs with which tracks my diet.  I simply input
what items I am eating and it tracks my calories consumed and compares them to my calories burned. I have lost five pounds immediately using this simple tool.  The product retails for $99.95, and has a report option for an additional $49.99 per year.  Read below for more about Fitbit:

Current recommendations from the likes of Dr. Oz and the American Medical Association are that we take 10,000 steps a day for optimal health and fitness. The average American only takes 5000 steps.  Regular physical activity helps prevent many chronic diseases and conditions, such as heart disease, colon cancer, type 2 diabetes, Osteoporosis, obesity, stroke and arthritis.*U.S.  Department of Health and Human ServicesThe use of a pedometer can significantly increase physical activity, weight loss and improvements in blood pressure. *Journal of American Medical Association
