People start eating high fat, low weight for different reasons. For me, it was to get healthy and get down to a more normal weight. For my boyfriend, it was to reverse is type 2 diabetes. And of course, we are both concerned about non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Regardless of the reason, it is really important to know where you are starting from. This way you can track your progress and see how you are doing.
Using an accurate scale can help you know where you stand so you can track your results.
These days, body scales are pretty reasonably priced and they have lots of bells and whistles. Plus many of them include a phone application so you can track your results as often as you would like.
The scale that I recommend is the Weight Gurus Bluetooth Smart Connected Body Fat Scale with Large Backlit LCD, by Greater Goods (Black) because it is very accurate. Some scales seem to give fluctuating results. I’ve had other scales where I can get off then back on and get a different reading each time. This one is always the same.
It is really easy to read as the numbers are very large. I don’t even need to wear my glasses.
But the best part is that your results upload to the application on your smartphone through Bluetooth. So you can clearly see your results and any sorts of changes in your weight loss or weight gain real time. I’m a bit of a geek and I like to check my weight often.
This scale will also help to keep track of your BMI as well although, for me, that isn’t as important.
The Weight Gurus Digital Body Fat Scale with Large Backlit LCD and Smartphone Tracking (black) is also a good option for someone with a smaller budget. It does everything as the other scale but rather than having a Bluetooth option, this one syncs with your smartphone through an app. You still get quick results, and you get to save a bit of money.
Along with the weight loss, I really get motivated by checking my body measurements as well. I find that even when I don’t lose any weight, I will see my measurements go down. And this is very exciting.
Placement of the measure is easy, for your arm simply measure the point between your elbow and shoulder. Your thigh you should measure between your hip and knee. And your waist should be measured along with your belly button.
