Anyone have any experience using the bodybugg or similar device? Did you find you didn't need it/want it after going paleo?

Wow! 135 lbs...superb! I have been using the BB for about 18 months on and off, there are times when I just need a break from it. I find that it can be tempermental. That is, somedays I can be quite sedentary and it will indicate that I was buring calories like a tour de france rider and other days I can be quite active and it will indicate I have barely burned above my BMR. I have found it is a good motivator in terms of getting me to move more in my day to day activities. Is it 100% accurate? I highly doubt it. Is it a good ball park if you need it? I would say yes for most people.

Really seems to be quite accurate. I don't buy the whole calories in/calories out, but even then it seemed pretty accurate when I tracked my food carefully.

How accurate does it seem to be? Congratulations on your weight loss, that is fantastic! I've looked at the bodybugg on and off for a few years but never got it because I didn't know anyone who used one to get good answers from about the reliability of the thing. I have a nice Garmin GPS watch that I use for walking but unfortunately it doesn't work unless you're covering distances. I'd love something that could measure CrossFit type wods or body weight exercises.

Using it now. I've had it for 1.5 years. Used it most of that time, but only been Paleo for about half of that time. Using it sporatically now. In last 13 months or so I've lost 135 pounds and have about another 40 or so to go. Use the BodyBugg very closely to dial down my Palo diet, then back off for a while and maintain. I expect I'll use it until I reach my goal weight, then not as long as I'm maintaining well.

So did you ever get off the last 40 lbs?
