11 Best Weight Loss Gadgets for 2018



Upgrade to a Standing Desk

Upgrade to a Standing Desk

Finding time to work out or move more is tough, but if you use a Standing desk at work for eight hours a day Monday Through Friday you can burn over 2,000 calories more than sitting at work.

According to Just Stand, if you stand for just three hours more each day for a year you will burn 30,000 more calories. That's eight pounds of fat. 

There are plenty of affordable standing desk options and most include a way to go from sitting to standing with a quick conversion so that you can go back and forth between the two options. 

I currently use the WorkFit-D (review) as my sit stand desk. I am using a slightly update model from that initial review that holds more and is sturdier. This is an excellent way to work in more activity and energy burning into your day. 

Carrie Schmitz, AOEAS, Certified Health Coach, Senior Manager, Human Factors and Ergonomics Research at Ergotron explains that, "Low intensity, 'non-exercise' activities like standing and walking are much more important than we realized. In fact, low level activities play a crucial metabolic role and accounts for more of our daily energy expenditure than exercise - moderate-to high intensity activity like running."

You can find affordable Sit Stand desks that sit on top of or clamp onto your current desk if your employer will not buy you a new desk. 

I've reviewed the Smart Desk 2Ergotron WorkFit C, WorkFit T and Vertdesk options.

If you want to sit less, you can check out these standing desks from Ergotron, an Ikea standing desk and our Standing Desk Guide.

    I totally agree with everything said, but the number 1 key is finding a fitness routine and diet that WORKS for you. . There are also so many weight loss solutions, it’s seriously overwhelming. I’ve created a website called Lose Weight With John Mark to tackle some of the more popular solutions online…I’ve put in the time and research and have given my honest opinions. It’s not easy, but it’s not impossible. Check out my review of The 3 Week Diet , which legitimately is an amazing weight loss solution

    If you are looking to lose weight, please avoid diet pills and all those other drugs that claim to help you lose weight. I have purchased many of these in the past and never had any good results. That was when I decided to stop falling for these scams and started learning about the food that I put into my body.

    I have to recommend ( for anyone who wants to change their life for the better. I built the site to show everyone how my wife and I lost weight. There are many hurdles and we have provided a way for anyone to get success by avoiding the mistakes we made on our weight loss journey.

    It’s good to mention that these are only ACCESSORIES to weight loss. What I found from my own experience is that exercise and dieting is the main thing that needs to be done together and routinely in order to lose weight. Fitness watches, scales, etc. in the sense of losing weight are mostly for motivation rather than a tool on HOW to lose weight. The first step to losing weight (for me) was accepting the fact that I need to put in x amount of time every day or every few days in addition to dieting. For me, it started on which laid out all of the information to help me plan and commit. I then lost 30lbs in a couple months after committing. It wasn’t until later that I ended up getting a fitness watch. The main point is that these are simply tools for motivation and some tracking; however, weight loss starts with exercise and dieting as the main focus.

    I also made the experience that using gadgets works can be a great support on your weight loss journey. The gadgets that work best for me are a fitness tracker and a nutrition tracking app. Since I use the Fitbit I tend to walk so much more than before, simply because I want to reach my daily step goal. I have synchronized it with Yazio, the app that I use to keep track of my nutrition, and this combination seems to be perfect for me. It is a great motivation to get some extra calories from walking. The Yazio app, which you can find here:, is also something I can really recommend, as it is really precise and tracks everything about my nutrition. On top of that the app also offers healthy recipes, meal plans and small challenges.
