Have you ever wondered why you burned 500 calories on the treadmill everyday last week and still gained 2 pounds? Has your weight loss stopped abruptly at 10 pounds even though you’ve been doing the same thing for the past 3 months? If you don’t know the answer to these questions, EatRight has the solution. The solution for you is the EatRight Metabolic Tracker program that utilizes SenseWear ® to help you optimize your weight management efforts.
What is SenseWear®?
Developed using research conducted at UAB, SenseWear® is a combination of an armband, wristwatch display, and software that allow you to track how many calories you burn minute by minute. It also tracks the number of steps you take, your sleep time and sleep efficiency, and your caloric intake. Using this information, the software graphically displays your energy balance—the determining factor in weight change. If you have a positive energy balance, you will gain weight; if you have a negative energy balance, you will lose weight.
"The Metabolic Tracker program may provide the first real evidence that your metabolism is being affected by problems that could be addressed medically."
