Be Calorie Smart

By: Andrew Loughray

CALORIE COUNTING MADE EASY

With almost a third of women and half of men overweight in the UK, it seems that more and more of us need to watch our calorie intake and exercise levels to keep our weight under control.

But one of the problems is that most of us don't add up the calories we eat as we go and so find that at the end of each day, we've still eaten more than we should have.

However, a clever little device is being launched on the UK market which allows you to add up and store information on your calories as you go, to ensure that you can indulge in a glass of wine or chocolate bar and still stay within your prescribed weight loss limit.

CalorieSmart is a mobile, hand-held device that contains software to track weight goals. Slim, light, and easy to use, CalorieSmart records calories and exercise anytime, anywhere. You can choose from over 35,000 food items, add your own foods and recipes, pick exercises from the database or set up an individualized calorie burning plan to help motivate you to lose weight.

Nutrition experts agree that keeping track of calories is a key characteristic of successful weight loss programmes. "There is no doubt that self-monitoring is one of the most powerful proven aids for weight control. Research not only shows that individuals who maintain a food and exercise diary lose more weight, they also keep it off," says Elizabeth Roark, MPH, RD.

CalorieSmart keeps health a priority for an on-the-go lifestyle by allowing you to record what you eat and what exercise you have perfomed, leaving you free to think about your day.

CalorieSmart is the size of the typical PDA and runs off of regular AAA batteries. It has a large screen, full keypad, and a USB cord for downloading reports to a computer and is suitable for calorie counting with any diet programme.

This affordable health tool can be purchased for ?44.95 plus postage and packing at www.becaloriesmart.com so order yours on-line today.
