by Lisa Fields. May 18, 2020. No Comments. Many people support weight-loss efforts by stepping on a scale and tracking the number either daily or weekly. For others, weigh-ins can be harmful to self-esteem and trigger a negative relationship with food.

New to the tech scene — a numberless scale, like Shapa, which uses colors instead of numbers — could provide you. Notably, with a new ice-pack-laden vest called the Cold Shoulder, developed by Wayne B. Hayes, an associate professor at the University of California at Irvine. According to The Atlantic, the vest can help you burn 250 calories in one hour. However, don’t get the wrong idea about cold weight-loss tech, says Cronise. These smart scales can provide you with a more complete picture of your body, help you with weight loss, track your body weight over time, and measure how much fat and muscle you have, among other.

The FDA has not approved this technology for weight loss but it is worth noting that the agency refers to a “significant change in appearance.” Indeed, no EMS device can become a viable substitute for dieting and doing exercises, but this technology is worth trying as a supplementary measure. Compex Edge Muscle Stimulator. Top 3 Best Scale for Weight Loss Reviews 1. Yunmai SE Digital Body Weight Scale.

With an easy 5-second set-up and convenient local customer service, you’ll be tracking your weight loss in no time. The Yunmai app syncs directly with your Apple Health, Fitbit, or Google Fit device, so you can record your weight tracking graphs. A new study finds that checking your weight on a scale daily — regardless of exercise — could help you shed some pounds and lower your BMI. There are actually quite a few ways that you can get the data you need to make weight loss more successful every day.

Through graphics. Modern scales can connect with fitness trackers, including Fitbits, so provide complimentary data that goes with your workouts and lifestyle. A number of new medications are promising, and may help some with weight loss.

Studies of technology-supported weight loss interventions indicate that. Gelesis says the device has been shown to help people lose an average of 10% of their body weight in six months. Loss-in-Weight Scale weighing system provides accurate measurement of micro ingredients into your batching system.

It also provides continuous inventory monitoring and high-speed weighing with the multiple VFD option. The typical Loss-in-Weight Scale installation calls for daily usages under 500 pounds and cycle draws between 1 and 20 pounds.

Although this is a sobering message, if patients understand the changes in diet and physical activity that are required for long-term success, it can help them work harder to maintain their 5–10% loss of initial weight.

Although that may not sound like much, if a client lost 20 pounds of fat and kept all of his or her muscle mass, the 5 pounds of muscle mass kept (versus what might be lost without a resistance training program) would help him or her lose about 3 extra pounds.

  • I agree that it’s won’t MAKE you loose weight, but I would argue for a lot of people seeing that you’ve done 30 mins exercise a day is a benefit as you push yourself to complete that goal. I think it has helped me become more active but I’m under no illusions that it is a magic fix

  • That episode on weight loss honestly has negatively impacted my health. Knowing that exercise won’t lead me to lose weight, I’ve been neglecting it entirely, which I shouldn’t, because I need to exercise to manage my heart condition. I’m just not in a position where I can effectively manage my diet.

  • With the wearable tech along with all the other bosh; prolly put the people off; but if the wearable tech was the sole _ they wouldn’t have been overwhelmed

  • I think the biggest problem with the wearable tech is that is suuuuuuuuuuucks at tracking, it is soooo easy to trick, and will vary widely over the same distance based on the movement of the device not really your body. So if you’re are saying oh I need to get this many steps, it’s easy to trick yourself into swinging your arms more as you walk, increasing your step count but lowering your actual exercise.

  • I’ve never seen my fitbit as something that helps me loose, weight it’s just a curiosity thing, I like being able to tell if I met my goal for the week or not at glance with actual data, also it tells me the time.

  • I disagree with only one element, here. You said that what we really need is a trial that had consultation and coaching with and without the tech. I think that’s wrong. The tech isn’t going to melt fat. What it might do is give you some baseline of awareness of your activity level, so I would actually want to see a comparison of with/without tech among people who are not being coached or otherwise interacted with except for measurements at the start and end of the trial.

  • Lose weight in the kitchen, build muscle in the gym. The is well known in the bodybuilding community, and people who argue otherwise haven’t done their research

  • Just want to say I “knew” that exercise isn’t the number one factor when it comes to weight loss. Changing your life style and eating better is the better options. Exercise IS IMPORTANT, just like you said. Just less so when it comes to loosing weight.

    Great work here I love your channel.

  • I read a lot of superb opinions on the internet about how Custokebon Secrets will help you lost crazy amounts of weight. Has anyone tried using this popular weight loss methods?

  • Has anyone tried Custokebon Secrets? (search on google) We’ve noticed several awesome things about this popular weight loss secrets.

  • i like how he’s restating the conclusion. it’s like. yeah i know you stupid idiots are gonna gimme shit for this. fine. let me rub that in your face again

  • Wearable tech is a great tool to help you start to be more mindful of your fitness and diet regimen, as well as provide a form of social accountability (the same way weight watchers or addiction support groups can).

  • The problem with the content in the video is, that it condemns smart watches in general based on a study that did not even use smart watches. What if in the next level of smart watches, they take the data and provide the user actionable advice based on scientific studies? That would completely change how such a tracker works and affects the user.

    It is the backbone, It is the meat, it is the Holy Grail, it is how you lose weight.

    If I go to the gym for two hours on a treadmill vs laying bed all day.
    The treadmill might allow me to eat triple the amount of calories vs in bed all day.
    But the two hours on a treadmill would only double my calories vs a regular day without the gym.

    The most calories I’ve burned according Fitbit was 5236 calories, and that day I went on a hike all afternoon.
    The most I’ve eaten in a single day (A cheat day, so i’m guessing) could have easily been 6000 calories. Lots of Ice Cream and Candy.

    So yeah diet is the gold standard.

  • I don’t remember, in the diet vs exercise to lose weight episodes, did he talk about how much people ‘stick to it’. I understand that diet is better to lose weight, but my own experience is that I’ve never been able to stick to a dietary change (because, you know, chocolate.) On another hand exercise, once you’re at it for a while, feels good, so I don’t think I’ll stop exercise (lost 14 pounds by exercise only).
    So I’m curious if there’s any data on how much people maintain exercise vs diet interventions, especially when under not to strict medical control (cause most people don’t have a doctor’s appointment every month). Cause in the end, the change that you should make is the change you can stick to, right?

  • I’m sorry, but I lost almost 30lbs once by just eating a little less and running a lot more. Dr. Carroll can keep saying that the evidence says exercise has little to do with weight loss, but my (and apparently a lot of other people’s) personal experience says that a good cardio routine is much more helpful than he suggests. And no, I do not regard a walking to and from your car 3 times a week as cardio.

  • Okay, my physical activity actually has increased thanks to my Fitbit. You’re acting like these do nothing for anyone, which is wrong. For me, at least, it’s been very helpful at physical activity. No, not weight loss, but increasing physical activity. What’s being talked about makes things that help people like me be more physically active seem totally pointless, which they’re not. Just because some people in a study can’t be motivated by them doesn’t mean others can’t be. (Plus, you know, most people don’t have constant access to other programs to increase activity.)

  • I for one find exercise with a goal just really difficult. But, first came pokemon Go. Gave me a goal. A place to reach (even if it is complete shit). Then, after tiring of PG, I lost interest in exercising. Then I found Resources GPS MMO, and now run/bike at least 2 miles a day.

    Not technically a “wearable device” but I do put my phone in my shirt pocket.

  • it’s absurd how large the weight-loss industry is. none of this shit makes losing weight all the much easier, and losing weight otherwise is completely free

  • It’s not the device that makes you lose weight, it’s the person using it. If you own a device but then never use it and stuff your face full of donuts, it’s not going to work. Just like no amount of exercise is going to make you lose weight if you increase calorie intake to match. However, saying you won’t lose weight if your diet remains unchanged and your physical activity increases is just stupid.

  • What is the best product or brand to lost tons of fat? I read loads of good opinions on the internet about how exactly Custokebon Secrets can help you lost lots of fat. Has anyone tested out this popular lose weight methods?

  • The problem with wearable tech, as I see it, is the false-positive effect. You believe you’ve done good because you hit that 10k steps, you’ve done positive, and you’ve got your positive-doing dopamine. So, you’re going to be more willing to cut corners elsewhere, because you did what you came out to do. All part of the human condition sadly. Though, conversely, it can be better than nothing for those that need a reminder to even start, so not all bad.

  • Behavior analysis works, because one of the basic principles is effectiveness. If it’s not effective, you’ve gotta change what you’re doing.

  • Hi there, have you considered Custokebon Secrets yet? Just simply do a google search. On there you’ll discover an awesome guidelines about how you can lost tons of weight. Why don’t you give it a chance? maybe it’s going to work for you too.

  • Weird I wasn’t even thinking of getting an Apple watch for just that I think it has some other fun features, but also it can go in the water. At least the Apple watch does more than just fitness tracking so you could always find more reasons for it while others most deff wont be useful unless you’re doing GPS tracking or cross country on a bike or running.

  • is the goal of weight loss to motivate people to exercise the wrong end point? shouldn’t the real goal be to find a way to incorporate activity and exercise into a sustainable and repeatable daily routine?

  • So just wearing a little gadged on your wrist wont let you magically lose weight, if you don’t make use of the gathered data to adjust your diet or your habits.


  • I had a fit bit for a while and it made no sense bc like how was it supposed to help? I did the exact same stuff but just felt worst… plus I doubt measuring how many steps I took really made the biggest impact on my heath

  • Betting it’s a more hit and miss thing… worked well for my wife. It made her more aware of her sedentary life and she worked hard to meet her step goals. Lost 30lbs over the course of a year. Doesn’t mean it’s gonna work for everyone, or even a majority though.

  • I might also rightfully point out that losing weight is not the same as losing fat. The point that they “also weren’t more fit” addresses that, but please be more specific in the future. Losing weight means nothing. Losing fat is far more important.

  • Are they useful in trying to gain muscle? I’m on a fitness regime where I’m trying to put on muscle weight and am finding technology useful in tracking my workout routine. Essentially high tech pencil and paper.

  • Underlying assumption is that the wearable techs encourages and increases physical activities but if increase in physical activities does not translate to weight-loss (as many studies have shown), it’s pretty obvious that the wearable techs do not help in weight-loss.

  • I have a fitbit for work. If I reach a step goal set by employer each month, I get a discount on insurance premiums. It hasn’t helped me lose weight, just stay active and save money. The cost of the device was paid for in the first 6 months.

  • On a funny side note I recently got a nice camera, while it absolutely does nothing for my fitness directly it is worth noting that weekly hikes and exploring new places to get more interesting pictures has become routine (even last weekend which was freezing!)
    Personally I got the camera because I already bike hike an kayak in cool places in the summer. But because I wanted to practice I started hiking an snow shoeing more in the winter. An even better still the days I did get out, I stayed out longer to get more pictures. As someone who works indoors at a desk Jan an Feb are the worst months to get encouragement to get out into nature.
    So while not a wearable fitness tech, it is a funny note that this tech certainly had a desirable result.

    This is my first time posting, keep up the good quality content! you run a fantastic show!

  • Some fat piece of shit with lifelong unhealthy habits(most Americans) aren’t going to lose weight just because they are wearing a Fitbit haha

  • I think it also has to do with the way the data is displayed. I wore a fitbit one for 2ish years, and found it wasn’t motivating me because I wasn’t looking at it. after upgrading to the Samsung fit 2, that shows the data on my wrist and can vibrate to get my attention, I definitely hit that step goal and active minutes goal more often. Just my anecdote.

  • I appreciate that you make videos that you know your viewers will find challenging. Thank you for working to make sure factual medical information is available to everyone.

  • Interesting. I would be interested in if younger people in the age group had more success using wearable tech versus older participants, and more importantly what the goal of having the device is (i.e. weight loss versus greater managed fitness level).

    More studies please!

  • Curious: How did the study tie in gamification aspects of wearable tech? It’s the “must beat my sister in steps today” part of a fitbit that keeps me active.:)

  • My mate laughed when I told them I was going to become slimmer with just implementing Custokebon Secrets, but after I showed them great effects right after I used it they are begging me to tell them about it. Of course I won’t let them know the details about this diet plan, lol

  • People actually thought it would make you lose weight…I just like that it gives me stats about my life, sleep and stuff.
    Also the health rate monitor is cool. I can see how event effect my heart rate.

  • Through this weight loss weight, several of my colleagues drop greater than 13 lbs! They informed me to do my study too and also find out about it. When I actually began following it the bodyweight just decreased 15 lbs. Find a right weight is not easy, you can research on Google. Guide’s name is Peyton Huno†az
    good luck

  • Hello I have Medicare..does that cover the cost of a dietician and the scales..I am mostly interested in the shakes and meals..I can pay out of pocket for those..Thank you for sharing

  • Just wanted to say I totally took your episode on diet as the driver for weight loss to heart. It clicked into place for me and it gave me permission to lose weight without requiring a physical component. I know that I should be getting 30 min a day 5 days a week of moderate activity. But that is separate in my head, like it’s never been before, from what I need to do to lose or maintain weight. So keep fighting the good fight HCT team!

  • It’s really too bad that information like this will never hit the MSM during primetime. Instead, yet another television host will promote the benefits of “organic” foods and exercise to lose weight, and will of course mention their sponsors, Apple, and their new smartwatch iteration. Hopefully, one day, this kind of work will penetrate the public mind and get people to stop being swindled out of their hard-earned money.

  • Has anyone tried Custokebon Secrets? (do a search on google) I have heard many amazing things about this popular lose weight secrets.

  • I don’t really like that study… It doesn’t compare the usual usecase: A normal person with a tracker vs a normal person without a tracker. And by normal person I mean: Someone who wasn’t put on a low-calorie diet, had group counseling, was advised to be active and so on.

  • If you wear the Apple watch just because you “get text messages and because it’s a good watch”, look into getting a Pebble. The Pebble Steel looks nice and it has a much longer battery life and is a better watch. It arguably does a better job at text messages. The major downside is that the company no longer exists so it will never get better than it currently is.

  • Problem with things like this is that many individuals aren’t going to align with the research. The kind of people who watch healthcare triage and care about their health are probably going to be outliers, and very likely will lose weight due to increased exercise and ‘tech’.

    Whereas the general population probably looks at a fitbit and says “oh, I walked 2,000 steps today! I should have some ice cream and chocolate cake to reward myself!” So its important if you want to dictate public policy on what people ‘should do’ for some reason, but I don’t think its good advice for individuals, particularly those who are well informed and intelligent. Which is why you will hear vast anecdotal evidence from people who lost weight due to wearing fitbits and being more active (changing exercise rather than changing diet).

  • What is the best way to lost crazy amounts of fat? I read many great reviews on the internet about how exactly Custokebon Secrets can help you lost crazy amounts of weight. Has anyone tested out this popular fat burn diet plan?

  • Diet Plan known as Custokebon Secrets kept showing up here on many youtube and I thought they were scams. However after my cooworker follow it, and finally lost lots of weight by using it without starving herself. I’m persuaded. Do not take my word for it, search for Custokebon Secrets on google.
