Fitbit Meets Fitbite


Wearable technology has made a huge impact on fitness, and now it might even influence your eating. The Journal Of The Academy Of Nutrition And Dietetics reports that wearable bite monitors help keep people from eating too much. In the study, the group who wore the electronic devices, which are activated by wrist motion, took about five fewer bites than those who did not wear a counter. Each device not only tracked bites but approximate calorie intake as well. The groups who received information about their intake significantly reduced how much they ate. The whole idea of bite monitors is kind of ridiculous. The larger lesson here, according to the lead scientists, is that information, self-monitoring, and accountability are key to losing fat, whether it’s done with a new gadget, your smartphone, or even a piece of paper and a pencil.
