Bone density is a measure of how solid your bones are. I'm sure we all know of elderly people who shattered a hip just by falling over. It's important to keep your bones strong!

Many modern scales tell you your daily muscle mass. This is a cool number to know, so that you watch as you convert your body's fat into muscle! What is the average muscle mass of an adult?

MyoTape Tape Measure star
One challenge we have when we lose weight on low carb is that sometimes it might look like we've hit a plateau. Really, this usually means the body is slimming down but as we convert from fat to muscle we aren't "loosing weight" at the moment. A tape measure can help show this!

Omron HJA-312 Activity Monitor star
I've tested and used many pedometers over the years, including the BodyMedia and SlimCoach systems which are both full blown metabolism / calorie usage trackers. This Omron HJA-312 purports to be an intelligent pedometer that provides extra features.

We've tested out a wide variety of chest straps, wrist units, hip units, arm units, and other metabolism-tracking systems over the years. We were quite interested to see how this Omron HR-500U Strapless Heart Rate Monitor compared.
