I was reading an article about fad diets just a few minutes ago actually, and their point was that the 'control' you need to exert was reminiscent of eating disorders (writer was a former anorexic). It has occurred to me that for some people, the fixation on controlling numbers (calorie counting), could also act in this manner, rather than feeding a healthy mindset that focuses on the nutritional value of food.
Just a thought - and not dissing anyone who is a calorie counter!

Wise choice. They really (in my opinion) not worth the money for data that you can (almost completely) get from a smartphone app like Runtastic or one that I've just started using today....StepOn. Calculates all I need to know, steps, distance, calories and charts it. Sure it doesn't measure sleep, but I figure if I wake up exhausted, I"d say I can bank on the fact that I probably haven't had enough (of it)!!!
