Seeing every day of the week that one's efforts (physical but also mental) are rewarded with a few pounds less on the scale, allows people to give their all and reach the weight threshold they have set for themselves. Here are all the technological devices that allow you to lose weight gradually and in a healthy way.

Fighting diabetes (and losing weight) with a fitness tracker

A sedentary life inexorably brings some health problems: the most common is diabetes. In order to fight boredom, we gorge ourselves on junk food and our body suffers the most. Sale il livello di glucosio nel sangue e si è costretti a utilizzare farmaci per non avere conseguenze ben più gravi. È possibile prevenire il diabete seguendo delle semplicissime regole: oltre a una dieta equilibrata, basta fare poco più di cinquemila passi al giorno per smaltire un po’ di zuccheri che si accumulano nel corpo. E per tenere sotto controllo il numero di passi basta un semplice pedometro presente in qualsiasi wearable disponibile sul mercato. Anche un fitness tracker da poche decine di euro è sufficiente per monitorare il numero di passi e ricevere una notifica quando si raggiunge l’obiettivo minimo. Un’alternativa valida agli activity tracker sono le applicazioni fitness per smartphone e tablet. App come Google Fit o Runtastic monitorano in background l’attività fisica della persona e raccolgono dati sul numero di passi effettuato, la distanza percorsa e le calorie bruciate.

Le camminate salutari possono poco o nulla se l’obiettivo è perdere peso in fretta. Ai cinquemila passi da compiere ogni giorno è necessario aggiungere almeno tre allenamenti settimanali in palestra. E anche se non siete amanti dell’allenamento a corpo libero è necessario rimettere in sesto i propri muscoli per avere una vita più sana. Here, too, technology comes to the rescue: on the Google Play Store and the App Store there are many apps that offer guided workouts to get in shape and lose weight. Carrot Fit, for example, offers a circuit of twelve exercises of thirty seconds each to be done free-body. The application has been very successful and has a rather high number of downloads. Lose It!, on the other hand, has the objective of making the user lose weight. To achieve this, it is necessary to complete the "missions" that the application assigns to the user and that include free body exercises and exercises with equipment. Finally, if your goal, in addition to losing weight, is also to increase muscle mass, one of the best applications is GymBook, a "library" with all the exercises you can do in the gym with practical examples and explanatory images.
