How GoBe2 Tracks Your Digestive Process The time it takes for your digestion to complete will vary based on: what, when and how much you ate, your age, stress, hydration levels, weight and gender. Protein-rich foods and fatty foods, such as meat and fish, can take longer to digest than high-fiber foods, such as fruits and vegetables. Sweets, such as candy, crackers, and pastries, are among the fastest foods digested. Here are some general time frames for the digestive process to be completed on your GoBe2. Time frame 0.75 - 1.5 hours (Greek salad with olive oil) 1.5 - 4 hours (Cheesecake) 3 - 6.5 hours (Burger and fries) 4.5 to 9 hours (Steak and a baked potato) These are general estimates - get the knowledge of how YOUR body works with GoBe2. To calculate calorie intake, FLOW uses readings from an impedance sensor, taken several times per minute, to measure the body's "glucose curve" throughout the day. After you eat, insulin triggers your cells to absorb glucose and release water. GoBe's impedance sensor measures these changes by sending high and low frequency signals through your tissue to determine the fluid volume of your cells. GoBe2 detects these changes and uses the information to calculate the calories you consumed.
TRACKS YOUR NET CALORIES AUTOMATICALLY - Typical calorie counting tools rely on averages and estimations from what you eat. Healbe's patented FLOW Technology estimates the amount of carbs/fat/protein, net calorie deficit (which causes weight loss) or surplus (which causes weight gain) that are crucial for healthy weight management.
KNOW & LEVERAGE YOUR ACTIVITY LEVEL - Patented technology measures activity and body movement. This sensor counts your steps, as well as distance traveled. A pulse wave sensor measures your heart rate, so it can tell when you're active and when you're not. By combining your activity level with calorie intake, the predicted calorie deficit is important for not starving yourself or overeating, both of which are crucial to avoid for reaching your desired body weight without losing lean body mass.
KNOW WHEN TO DRINK - Proper hydration is vital to your general health and workout performance. Your hydration level depends on your body requirements and activity level. Using FLOW and the Impedance sensor, Healbe GoBe2 automatically measures your hydration level and reminds you when to drink water, based on your body's needs.
KNOW & REDUCE YOUR SLEEP DEFICIT - The quality of your sleep directly affects the quality of your waking life, including your productivity, emotional balance, and weight. GoBe2 analyzes your heart rate and movement to model your waking, REM and regular sleep periods, and reports total sleep, quality of sleep, waking minutes, and sleep efficiency metrics. GoBE2 uses this data to recommend how much sleep you need the next day thus helping you actively reduce sleep deficit.
MANAGE YOUR STRESS - Stress is one of the silent killers in modern life, and one of the major factors for good sleep, good endurance and maintaining ideal body weight. The GoBe2 Fitness Tracker estimates your stress level and also shows stress episodes. By being aware of these episodes as they happen, one can begin to correlate the cause. It can be an especially powerful tool when combined with a professional stress management program.
