Slimming Down Dad Episode 4: Activity Trackers

FitBit Flex

A couple of weeks ago, Episode 2 of Slimming Down Dad was released and I received a question from Paul on the Slimming Down Dad Facebook PageOpens in a new tab.

I found myself looking forward to the next podcast and I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed it and found it very helpful. I am thinking of getting a Fit Bit to encourage me to walk more and to track calories in and out. What are you thoughts about Fit Bits?

I thought talking about activity trackers would make for a great podcast topic so I made myself a note to make that happen for Episode 4. I didn’t want to leave Paul’s question hanging, so I typed up a quick response. This episode goes into much more detail as I explain my experience with the original Jawbone Up as well as the FitBit Flex and Charge HR.
