Diet wristband invention to help weight loss

Up Jawbone diet wristband

A new diet aid will be hitting the market soon – a diet wristband that claims to help you lose weight. But will it really do the trick and be a magic diet solution?

The Up diet wristband by Jawbone looks like a simple bracelet that you wear on your wrist, but the makers of it hope that it will play a valuable role in helping you lose weight. Of course, just wearing a standard bracelet is unlikely to do a lot for your dieting ambitions, but the Up diet wristband is a bracelet with a difference.

Designed to be used alongside a smartphone, the diet wristband comes with a special app for your phone that tracks and monitors your movement, exercise, sleep patterns and nutrition 24 hours a day.

The Jawbone Up wristband hasn’t been released onto the market just yet – it will apparently be released in theUSlater in the year – so it’s still unclear exactly how it will work. However, I assume some degree of user input will be required to let it know what you’ve eaten and consumed on a daily basis, as one little wristband is unlikely to be that clever and instantaneously know what you’ve been up to!

If you really need to lose weight and are struggling to eat the right diet or cut down on your daily food intake, then the device might not be enough to help you meet your goals – sometimes we just need more input, support and advice.

But it sounds like an intriguing idea and the app might be useful for helping you record your daily food, drink and exercise habits and help you analyse where you could improve, or where you’re going wrong.

No price details have been released yet (all I know is that several different colors will be available) but I’ll be waiting for more details with interest and look forward to finding out how people get on with it.

What do you think? Would you try out the diet wristband? And have you come across any other similar diet apps on the market? I’d love to hear your views! http://www.bellayoscura.com/partir-es.html

    Sounds like another gimmick designed to part us from our money. For the most part most of the diet programs I’ve tried don’t require you to write down or track everything you eat after the first week or so (if then). So a smartphone and this bracelet are a rather pricey substitute for a little notebook and a pencil.

    But of course if you are a gadget-crazy person and have the money…..

    Unfortunately, many people decide they need to start dieting, and once the decision is made they begin immediately, quitting their previous bad eating habits “cold turkey.” The problem is that when this happens, so-called “cheating” becomes almost unavoidable, and while occasional setbacks are to be expected in any diet, people who go on “crash diets” tend to do it more and more often

    I think this wristband will work as long as you don’t cheat. I suppose they going to ask you to input some nutritional facts into your mobile app, and then check how much calories you actually burning while moving. That’s a good idea, but it will only work if you won’t cheat :) )))

    When will we learn that we do not need any gimmicks to help us to lose weight?

    The major obstacle in the path of a successful diet is our own mindset. I have come to realize this on my own journey to lose one hundred pounds over the next few months.

    There are hundreds, if not thousands of diets and diet gimmicks out there; just to separate the overweight and the obese from their hard-earned cash.

    The best way to lose weight is for you to decide what your ultimate weight loss goal is and for you to work towards that at your own pace and on your own “diet”.

    The minute you start using wrist-bands and the like you are taking some of the responsibility away from yourself.

    Although the big push for fad diets has dropped a little, it is still estimated that at least two-thirds of Americans are on some sort of diet at any given time. Although research shows the importance of eating all the major food groups, people are still confused about what type of diet to follow, keep the window open for more Quacky solutions to appear.

    Don’t fall for any gimmicky stuff. Go with a proven product. My suggestion would be Isagenix, nutrional cleansing at the cellular level.

    When most people think about increasing their protein intake they don’t think about weight loss. Most people believe increasing the protein in their diet is only beneficial when you’re trying to build muscle tissue to get muscular. However, there is such thing as a protein weight loss diet, which can help boost your metabolism and burn more fat.

    The only gimmick that would help me might be duct tape. I don’t think the bracelet would do it.
