Food and Fitness Monitoring

Virtual Personal Trainer has scientifically proven that tracking what we eat, in a daily basis, can help us to reach our weight loss goals. Thus, I encourage you to use some tracking method in order to follow your process of getting your goals done. There are many online tools for this purpose. We hardly recommend and encourage you to use FITBIT tool/website. You can find an internet computer version and/or cell phone version (either for android phones, tablets or iphone). We suggest members better use the phone version since its easier to use in a daily basis. Phone users can easily load their food and workouts on the fly. Alternatively you can use the internet version over your computer whenever you are online. You can log your daily food, activities and weight updates under the log section you will find in this webpage. 


Alternatively, you can also use other online computer or phone apps such as NOON (for both workout and eating habits) or more workout/sport specific such as JEFIT. There are many other you can also use if you prefer.


Below you will find more information on how to use android FITBIT app from android (similarly for iphone apps and website users). We found this tool to be very intuitive and easy to use.

Fitbit updates

Fitbit is very dynamic. It is updated and upgraded in a regular basis. As such, some of the figures and features described bellow might change over time. Usually these are minor changes. However, if you find some changes that might affect your understanding of this Fitbit guide, please let me know and I will be happy to update this page with the relevant information in order to help you throughout the implementation of your free weight loss plan.

fitbit dashboard






Fitbit last update includes this new 


fitbit macros

The figure attached shows a screenshot of last Fitbit update. A Macronutrients chart has been added to the food logging page. This is actually quite useful and interesting since it allows you monitoring if you are truly following the recommended weight loss nutrition guidelines described above.

    I'm almost 13 and severely obese... I weigh about 219-221 pounds. I want to walk into my school next year in about 3 months 150 pounds at least. Im not happy and this site said it was free so I hope its true. My dad was an abusive person and I had really bad depression. I turned to food and the pounds kept on packing on my body. I drink about a 50.7 ounces of water a day which is 1.5 liters I believe. So Im all good on water intake but nothing seems to work. please help me I could really use it.

    Thankyou, Kayla Dubois
