Coleen Uses BodyBugg to Meet Weight Loss Goal

Everyone wants to know… “What is that THING on your arm!?” You know, that “thing” that all the contestants wear on the Biggest Loser? It’s my BodyBugg!

The BodyBugg is a pretty simple device that is used to calculate the calories expended each day. You wear it on your right arm and it measures the amount of calories burned throughout the day. Not only calories, but steps taken and personal targets for the day.

I like to use my BodyBugg to help me reach my calorie “burn goal” for each day. This helps me manage where I am with my weight loss. A few of the things I don’t care for about it is that you have to pay for the web program (which I find very helpful as you can log your food and see a visual of your activity for the day) and that it doesn’t accurately measure “sit down” activities such as spinning and the stairmaster.

All in all, I really enjoy using my BodyBugg on my weight loss journey. I like the idea of having how many calories I’m burning right there in front of me, no questions asked.

so are you still losing weight Coleen? You had not reached goal by finale, because you looked GREAT then. Just wondering.

Hey Coleen, you look like you’re in great shape now, do you still want to lose more weight? Ali from Season 5 and Jillian look a bit too thin IMO…it’s good to be in shape but most women look better with a little bit of body fat instead of just being skin & muscle.

Hi Coleen,

Many of us are very impressed by all of the biggest loser contestants. We know that while at the ranch you workout about 6-8 hours a day. For us and for you when you got back home, thats not a reality – just not enough time to dedicate to the workouts. Many of us have about 2 hours to workout each day. We know more a less your workout routines and we can always use the Biggest Loser DVD’s as I do, but we don’t know exactly what it is you are eating, etc..

Could you please let us know a typical menu that you guys did at the ranch. What did you guys eat and at what times…. Also, what did you eat when you got back home. That would be a great help and tool for us all.

Thanks Coleen!

For anyone using the new bodybugg (slimmer black version), unlike the version Coleen uses the band goes on your left arm. Plus the great advantage is you don’t have to replace batteries because it recharges!!

Coleen you look awesome. I am wondering where can I go to find out more information on the body bugg. I have just recently started to go and work out and I am working on my eating at home. Also how do we know how much calories we should be burning or maintaing each day, is there a web site or book that can help? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
