That would all just be a guestimate based on changes in weight. However, people's metabolisms may differ based on their nature or their diet/lifestyle. I think it would be better to actually keep track rather than letting it be guessed purely on weight change. Otherwise, it could drastically over or under estimate, which could confuse the issue when you try to adjust your diet. For example, calculations would claim that I was eating 2400 calories a day to remain at a steady weight even though I am actually eating 1500. For me, this is because of my thyroid. Others may have similarly depressed metabolisms due to dieting or medicine side effects.

Each week when you enter your weight and it tells you your actual calories consumed vs. your logged calories is the only way it would tracking calories, but you still need to track them. It can figure out what you consumed based on your weight gain/losss.

i havent heard about the bugg being able to track what you eat either. :a bugg that could track output and input would be 100% awesome.

this might not be exactly what you are looking for but..

Does the bodybugg armband track what I eat?
No, the armband itself tracks the calories you burn, but not the calories you eat. Your calories consumed are calculated by the bodybugg web interface based on your weekly body mass change. To better track your calorie input, the program also offers an easy-to-use food log so you can monitor the calories you eat throughout the day.

Yeah I can't find it anywhere on the website on how to do it just through the bugg itself... so frustrating! here is a link i found from apex systems on youtube where he even says that it can track the calories you consume based on the mass change or something like that... it's around 1:55 - 2. but i also remember reading it on the site at some point...

I have done it a couple of ways...I am currently tracking Calories Out and Steps on Bodybugg and Calories In on SP. I then enter this information into a calendar on an excel spreadsheet so I have an easy guide. I recently had foot surgery, so tracking all 3 are very helpful. I hope this helps.

That's a new one on me--I never heard of that. I track here on SP and then enter the total calories for the day on the BodyBugg site. I am interested to hear if anyone else has info on this!

Can BB track the calories you consume without you having to log what it was you ate? I remember seeing something stating that yes it could track how many calories you consumed just by slight changes in your skin, and by this you didn't have to track your calories because it could do it for you, however to get this to work you needed to do your measurements at least 2 times. Now i cannot find this anywhere on the BB site.... and I've gotten really sick of tracking my calories in. Does anyone know where this is at or how to do it? Or did i just have a dream or something? It's kinda driving me nuts ya know.... Thx guys!

Oh and btw I justu have a plain old bodybugg... i'm guessing v3 but it doesn't say that on the box. It has the rechargeable battery.
