The first thing I have to recommend is BodyMedia FIT. This has been on my arm constantly for the last year, and I’m in love with it. It basically tells me how well I slept, how many calories I’ve burned, how many steps I’ve taken, and how hard my body has been working. With daily “goals” to meet to make my weight-loss achieveable, BodyMedia FIT makes it extremely easy to understand exactly how much doing laundry burns – or going out and running a half an hour. This has become my unseperable partner this last year. Check out my BodyMedia FIT review or go straight to purchase any of the BodyMedia FIT armbands.
Is your friend trying to lose weight? You could help purchase them a gift of Nutrisystem. I’ve been doing this for the last two months, and just in six weeks, I’m already down 16 pounds. It’s actually amazing. Nutrisystem takes the “thinking” process out of what to eat. When all of the food is directly laid-out in front of you and directly labeled, you can’t mismanage portion sizes, and it’s much easier to stick to the diet. If they are serious about their weight loss and really want to kick start it, Nutrisystem helps a LOT. People say it’s 80% diet and 20% exercise that makes the weight loss, so getting the food part down is critical!

Now I’d like to introduce you to the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale! When you are watching what foods go into your body – whether as a diet or just for wellness – you’ll find that many nutritional food labels give their serving sizes in measurements like ounces or grams. It usually gives an alternative measurement like “48 crackers”, but no one wants to count out 48 crackers. That’s why a kitchen scale is so important, and those who watch what they eat could definitely use one. The Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale is available in multiple colors and features an auto-turn-off mode and weighs up to 11 pounds of food. With its small and compact counter-top design, it won’t take up much room in your recipient’s kitchen yet they’ll still be able to watch exactly how much food they’re putting into their bodies! It’s a fantastic scale! You can read my EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale review, or you can go straight to the EatSmart website to purchase this scale. If you prefer, the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale is also available on Amazon.
Next up, I want to introduce you to the Zumba Fitness Core fitness game. I LOVE Zumba so much! It’s like getting a work-out and not even knowing it’s supposed to be “hard”. The music pumps you up, you really get a burn going, and it’s all enjoyable like a fun night of dancing. That’s exactly what the Zumba Fitness Core game is about – except it targets the core of the body for good abs and good fitness. Available on the Xbox Kinect and Wii, for anyone who loves fitness, Zumba Fitness Core makes staying healthy a fun and enjoyable task. It’s 40-song soundtrack gives a good variety of music while the movements are challenging but not impossible – it just feels like you’re learning new dances, and it’s a blast! For anyone who loves fitness or being health-conscious, this is a fantastic gift. Check out my Zumba Fitness Core review or buy Zumba Fitness Core directly from their website.
