for the Workout Enthusiast
The BodyBugg monitors how much you exercise, manages how many calories you eat, then tracks if you are burning more calories that you are consuming. It's customized specifically for you, it is based on your age, weight, height and personal goals. You can view your progress with a 12-month subscription to a web based nutrition program / personal calorie management system.
