the body bugg has a chest band if I'm not mistaken, but the monitor itself is worn on your arm so you can read it without taking off your shirt. teehee.


you can find the cost by doing a search for Body Bugg. I did last year, but can't remember now how much it cost.

What is the cost of one? Is it better than just a heart rate monitor that you wear on your chest?

I have used the body bugg in the past and LOVED it...if you are really into knowing exactly how many calories you are actually burning during different activities and all throughout the day, it is a really great tool!! There are a few down sides to it though, if you have really sensitive skin, then the arm band may be irritating and it does cause some gnarly tan lines if you wear it too long outside!! The online program that comes with it is a lot like spark people, the way in which you enter food and activity! The biggest benefit that I found using the body bugg was that after using a cardio machine, I could check my calorie burn on the body bugg vs. the machine and the machine tended overestimate calorie burn, so I knew that I needed to log a few more minutes each day. Hope this was somewhat helpful!

heart rate monitor with mini computer to help you know if you're working hard enough to burn enough to loose weight. not perfect, but helpful.

Logically I would think it should work - it measures somehow the number of calories burned, not just the movement that SHOULD burn the calories. Would be interesting to know if anyone has one.

I wouldn't have a clue, but the girl who won BL11 I think it was has PCOS (or is it her sister who does? bla i can't remember which one), and she was using that body bug thing because all of the BL contestant do - so it if worked for her on the ranch (and they seem to keep them when they go home) then I would guess that it works for everyone even those of us with PCOS.

Alright, so we've all seen them... Jillian Michaels always swears by them... but are they really worth dishing out the mula for?

That's right - I'm talking about BODY BUGG's... I've heard they are like a personal trainer on your arm.... but are they really worth it? Can they work for women who have hormone imbalances? I have not been diagnosed with PCOS, but because my sister has, there is a pretty high chance that I do have the same problems as she does, so I am curious if a body bugg would help us?

Please let me know what you guys think? I'm thinking of getting one, but I'm a broke college girl so I gotta start saving up, in the mean time... have you guys tried them? been successful? any recommendations as to type/brand?

Thanks!
