I'll be getting one as soon as my dietician completes the training material (it's a load of crap - just a way for the company to charge more fees). The science behind it is solid and has been around for quite a few years.

I want to get one because my job is physical, but I can't tell how physical in terms of calorie burn. I also don't trust cardio machine read-outs except the treadmill.

And guess what? All of us BodyBuggers can definitively add real numbers to the old threads about how many calories sex burns!

We need a team!

I'm all for a bodybugger team when we all get one! It'll be fun to compare notes on how many calories we burn doing all kinds of different activies!

I had never heard of these and was very interested so I went online to look it up. I WAS interested until I saw the price!!! $479?!??!? OMG!
It is a great concept but I can't afford that! It basically tells you anytime of day how many calories your burning as well as the calories you ate and it also tells you how many more calories are left in your "budget" for the day and whether you need to burn more or not. Great concept but that price! UGH!

Yeah, if you have that much money to be spending on counting calories, you should probably be doing something more philanthropic. Karma is a bitch.

Yup got mine from e-bay....

It's a tool. A tool that I think is worth the money - just like other people may think it's worth the money to spend on a nutritionist or personal trainer. I personally can benefit from this particular tool.

I'm looking forward to it telling things like....

-When my body has adjusted to my workouts and I should change things up a bit....

-My true calorie burn vs. depending on exercise machines that don't take all factors into consideration. Many Bodybugg users find they don't burn as many calories on the machines as they thought they did.

-Also - what activites burn the most calories.

-It will drive me to get up and move to meet my daily burn goal if I haven't met it yet and it's approaching the end of the day.

-Most importantly - keep me at the proper balance for calories in vs. calories out without burning too much and compromising hard-earned muscle and compromising my metabolism.

Hey, stop justifying your spending habits to the jealous piece of snot who thinks that a consumer gadget (that costs 1/4 of the FDA-approved medical device that does the same job) is extravagant.
