Get in Gear: Cal-Carb Clicker

Now I thought I've seen every gadget on the market to help you lose weight, but here's another one. It's called the Cal-Carb Clicker. Catchy name, huh?

What does it do? For $19.95 it will keep track of your daily:




  • Carbs
  • Calories
  • Carbs & calories together
  • Points
  • Blocks
  • Fat grams
  • Water intake
  • Whatever it is you're counting



Wow, can it do my laundry and make dinner too? To find out, read more

Is there a catch? Of course. You're the one who sets the number on the top at the beginning of the day for the number of calories you're allowed. Then as you eat, you "click-in." When the top number reaches zero, you're done for the day. I know why it works - with clicking all day long, who has time to eat?

The Cal-Carb Counter comes with complete instructions (thank god) and a Cal/Carb Food Index. So now you can break down your meals and figure out just how guilty you should be feeling about that brownie fudge sundae you just ate.

While it is true that keeping track of your caloric intake is a great way to take responsibility if you're trying to watch your weight, I don't really think it's necessary to keep track with this product. That's what good old paper and a pencil are for. What do you think?
