The Types of Weight loss Calculators

At first the only weight loss calculator available was the traditional weighing scale. Today a number of weight loss calculation tools are available to give patients an accurate account of their progress in their chosen weight loss program.

The traditional weighing scale was and is the best weight loss calculator of all. The digital version of the traditional weighing scale is more accurate in measuring the weight of the patient. There are also calorie burn rate calculators to aid the progress of weight loss. There are calculators that accurately measure the weight lost over a specified period of time. The BMI or Body Mass Index calculator is a vital calculator because it shows patients whether the weight loss program is posing a health risk to them. Some weight loss calculators give gender specific and age specific weight loss calculations. Weight loss calculators are wonderful motivation aids for a weight loss program.
