2 Tools to Use With Fitdigits to Lose Weight
Twas 2 nights before Christmas, when all through the land
Not a person was exercising, no workouts were planned.
The ham was carved, candy eaten without care,
10 pounds later we complain life isn’t fair.
This holiday season, before you snuggle into your bed,
Make sure to have a Holiday plan in your head.
Fitdigits is sharing the year’s best fitness tips,
To help you avoid adding winter weight to your hips.
2nd Day- 2 Tools to Use With Fitdigits to Lose Weight
Losing weight is hard. I do not need to throw on a stethoscope and white lab coat to break that news to you. It takes discipline, motivation, dedication and a game plan. However, before you even get to that, first you need to gather information. Armed with the proper weapons in the battle vs. the bulge, you will be able to appropriately plan both how often you workout and what you eat. Combine the Fitdigits app with two other fantastic health and fitness tools, and you have all the ingredients you need to start shedding that winter coat.
We call it the Weight Loss Triad, formed via the perfect partnership between Fitdigits, MyFitnessPal and Fitbit. When properly utilized, you will be able to see the exact deficit between how many calories you eat and burn. For example, one pound of fat is equal to 3500 calories, meaning in order to lose an entire pound of fat you will need to burn 3500 more calories than you eat. If you want to burn a lb of fat every two weeks, that means on average you will need a caloric deficit of 250 calories a day. That is where the Triad comes in.
Use Fitdigits to track all of your workouts. If you want the most accurate calorie count, it is essential to use a Heart Rate Monitor along with a Fitdigits Fitness Assessment. Now you will have custom heart rate zones and a Fitness level that will help get incredibly accurate caloric burn during workouts. Fitdigits also will act as the central data collecting hub for Fitbit and MyFitness Pal.
Fitbit tracks your daily activity, so when you walk around the grocery store or do chores around the house, you will get credit for the steps you took and calories burned. This works great in conjunction with the workout data collected by Fitdigits. Begin by linking your Fitdigits account with your Fitbit account. Now all of your Fitdigits and Fitbit calories will be collected in one spot. Don’t worry, you can wear your Fitbit while also recording with Fitdigits and the calories will not count twice.
The final piece of the equation is MyFitnessPal. MyFitnessPal takes inventory of everything you eat. Enter in your meals using MyFitnessPal’s enormous library of foods, and it will tell you how many calories you ingested. You can also set weight loss goals so that MyFitnessPal will instruct you on how many calories you can eat based on how much you are working out. If you already have linked Fitdigits to Fitbit, then all you need to do is link your Fitbit account with MyFitnessPal.
We have found that linking Fitdigits with Fitbit, then Fitbit with MyFitnessPal is the best way to link the three partners. If you try to link them a different way, problems will occur. For more details, read our blog post on Linking MyFitnessPal and Fitdigits.
With these two tools alongside Fitdigits, you are in the drivers seat when it comes to weight loss. All you need to do is turn the key, shift into drive and get started!
