Helped me figure out my own daily caloric burn

By 

from Utah

Comments about Apex Bodybugg:

The Bodybugg is really a nifty tool for those interested in their caloric expenditure. I know for me, I always felt the impression that the online daily calorie counters that you can use seemed to always be too high for me. I would gain when I would eat the amount they suggested that I would maintain on so I decided to get a Bodybugg for a while to see if they were really accurate for my body and it turns out that they really were telling me more than what my body actually maintains on. The Bodybugg helped me easily see that in actuality, my BMR (or Basal Metabolic Rate, ie. what one maintains on without exercising) was about 200-300 calories less than what online calculators would tell me. It was nice being able to use a tool like the Bodybugg to figure this out, because it didn't require any effort on my part really aside from just wearing the band around all day. Yes it did get a bit annoying sometimes to wear the band because it isn't necessarily the cutest accessory around, but the information you gain makes it worth it.

The only other downside I would say would be price, because you have to subscribe to the online website (which is the only way you can see your results) so that's kind of annoying. But again, I think it's worth it even just for the short term to see what your body really burns in a day.

On the fence

Comments about Apex Bodybugg:

I gave the body bugg a fair chance. There were things that I really liked about it, but there were also things that I wasn't too fond of. What I really liked about it was how it tracked absolutely everything that went on with my body in a day. I was able to see every aspect of my physical activity and was able to find out what times of the day I was the least active so I could improve on that. It was also a lot more comfortable than I had imagined. It didn't bother me at all. I thought that I was going to sweat under it or that it might be heavy or itchy, but it wasn't. The things I really didn't like about it was that it is a little bulky under my sleeves (who wants to tell the world they are wearing a body bugg under their shirt?) and there is a monthly subscription to the service. You pay a pretty penny for the device itself, but then you are forced to pay a subscription each month in order to log into the website that has all of your information from your body bugg on it. I think that there should be a way to have a product like this without having to pay a monthly fee on it. But if you are willing to pay, it is a great little device.

Great way to track your calorie input and output.

By

Comments about Apex Bodybugg:

It is so easy to lose weight with the bodybugg. Don't get me wrong, it is still hard work. But if you can do the math, you can lose weight. You track how many calories you eat and how many calories you burn and as long as your burning more than you eat, you will lose weight. I lost over 50 lbs with the bodybugg and have kept it off for almost 4 years so far. Anytime I'm up 5 lbs over my goal weight, I just wear the bodybugg until I'm back down.

I'm bugged!

By 

from Chandler, AZ

Comments about Apex Bodybugg:

Bodybugg makes everything easier! Counting your calories is a big step to losing weight, but it's only half of the equation! Losing weight is creating a calorie deficit. So you need to know what your burning and eating! Bodybugg answers that "burning" question! It tracks your calories that you are burning and you just need to log what you eat. If you can eat 1000 calories less than what you burn, you will lose 2 pounds a week on average. Some weeks you'll lose more, some less, but if you are logging EVERYTHING, it will all average out in the end. It takes a lot of work and dedication to log your food. You have to weigh out and measure everything to be acurate. If a food isn't in the database, you better add it to be safe. You are only cheating yourself if you don't know exactly how many calories you're eating. Bodybugg will tell you what you are burning, and that's huge, but it's up to you to provide the other half of the data. The whole program is easy to use though. The software allows you to track everything and will give you as much data and reports as you can handle. It gives you updates on your progess as you enter your new weight every week and keeps you in check. It is an awesome tool if you are willing to go all in!

Bodybugg Works!

By 

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about Apex Bodybugg:

I purchased my bodybugg in December of 09 after unsuccesfully trying to get the last 10 pounds off. I used it for four months and it worked. I suggest this to all my friends who are trying to lose weight because it keeps you accountable. It doesn't let you lie to yourself about how much exercise or food you had for the day. It's in black and white... I burned this and ate that. You know if you are going to be lighter on the scale at your next weigh in. There is no guessing. It made me work harder in the gym because I could see the results. I was able to stay on my plan and this past holiday season I used it again just to stay on track. Love my bodybugg and would recommed this product to anyone trying to lose weight!

The Body Bug is a great tool, if you need it!

By 

from Baytown, TX

Comments about Apex Bodybugg:

I would recommend this as a tool for anyone who is just getting start on a weight loss journey, however I do not think that is necessary to get the year long subscription first. They should let you start off with a 3 month or 6 mpnth subscription, because honestly after a month of using it you'll know most of your eating patterns and your calorie burning times and when you are most sedontary. It will really open your eyes to how active you truly are or how active you aren't. If you are trying to lose weight by now you may have realized that it is a matter of calories in and calories out, and this product will help you keep track of how many calories you are spending everyday, which will help you know how long to work out etc.. The other benefit is that you can't really go by the calorie counter thats on the cardio equipment, but the body bug will give you a more accurate idea of what you are actually burning.

never have trouble losing weight again

By 

from Vancouver, WA

Comments about Apex Bodybugg:

I bought a bodybugg a few years ago and have to say I completely love it. I have struggled with weight all my life and was so happy to learn what it taught me. I learned I was burning far more calories than I was eating and I was actually able to eat more than what I had been eating and still able to lose weight. I loved knowing how many calories I burned when I did different work outs. I would go to some trainers classes and burn 250 calories and the same class with a different trainer could be 450 calories burned. It was amazing to see the changes and I was able to watch weight melt off of me because it became calories in/calories out instead of a guessing game. I even used this during my whole pregnancy and only gained 25lbs. Now with that note - I did not use it to lose weight when I was pregnant I used it to see how many calories I was burning because I continued working out through my whole pregnancy. My doctor was thrilled that I was eating exactly what I was burning and had a very healthy pregnancy. I did have a lot of people ask me why I was wearing it when I was pregnant and I took some flack because I was not willing to eat pints of icecream or any other huge portions that I would have to track later. My son was 3 weeks early a very healthy weight actually bigger than what the Doctor thought and I am very happy I kept myself in check. Anyway -not just for pregnancy and healthy eating, but also great for losing weight before or after having a baby or just losing weight in general. You will be very happy with the results - just make sure you are willing to track your food. They now have a model that works with smart phones.

Great tool to monitor to help your weight loss.

By

Comments about Apex Bodybugg:

I've had the body bugg for a bit now and it's great tool to use wether your looking to loose weight or maintane it.

  The Body bugg stays on your left arm and as you go about your day it uses the sensors to figure out how many calories you burn. It has a watch you can get with it so you can view real time activity Like how many steps you've walked, how many calories  you've burned, How much time you've been physicaly active as wall how many calories you are currently burning a minute.

  You can also reset the trip amount of calories burned to see how much you actually burn for either a set of exercise  so you get a feel for how much you are really burning instead of what the treadmill or other piece of equipment says you should be burning.

 Another great thing is depening on who you buy it from you can get 6months free of the online tracker wichh can be a bit pricey once the 6months are over with.

With the online tracker you upload the data from the body bugg either wirelessly or with the included usb cable. It will take all the data and put it in a graph for you so you can see hour by hour exactly how much you burned. You can also view it as a graph of days once you have enough days under your belt.

 It has a calorie tracker as well as a place to put you mesurements. The calorie tracker will help you keep track of your calorie deficits or overages. Also Putting your measurements every week or two will also tell you how many calories you really ate by the amount of weight and inches lost. So you don't have to stress about couning every calorie.

If you have the watch it will give you a message everytime you meet a calorie, activity, or step goal for the day.

Another good feature is when either your battery or memory starts getting low the bugg will beep and depening on which light is blinking will tell you that it's either time for a charge, or to upload. This way you don't have to worry about wearing the bug only to find out it didn't track your hard work.

The only thing That is cons about the product is the high price, as well as the monthly fee for the online service which you have to have if you want to view your progress as well as free up the memory of the bugg. Also sometime when you haven't been active is you have to press the watch and bugg to show you your stats on the watch.

Other wise I love my bugg it helps me stay on track and a motivator when I see how many calories I burn and now I can make that number bigger!

So far In the year I have had it i've lost around 30lbs.

Again a great little tool to help loose or maintain weight if you can get it at a good price.

It's addicting!

Comments about Apex Bodybugg:

I love this thing!  I have a V3 and I wear it 23 hours a day.  I even sleep with it on.  It is really fun to see how much calories you are burning and to look back over your day and say "Hey I did really good working out today!"  It helps me keep accountable for what I'm putting in and what I'm putting out.  I love the charts and it's really easy to use.  So far since I've had the bodybugg I've gone down 25 lbs!  Yay!
