We’re really excited to be integrated into award-winning chef and best-selling author Rocco DiSpirito’s new book, Cook Your Butt Off! Every recipe in the book includes a barcode you can scan with the Fitbit app to automatically add it to your food log. The book is out today, and you can order it now!
Here’s how Rocco describes the integration in his book:
I love activity trackers, and I wear my Fitbit every day. So do my clients.
Fitbit’s devices track everything from steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, active minutes to floors climbed, and sleep quality! And the app just adds to the experience, by letting you record workouts, log calories, see your progress, and more.
For my clients, I use that information to tailor their menus to their individual weight loss goals. For myself, I use it to moderate my steps and calorie burn.
You don’t need an activity tracker to use this book, but since Fitbit has been a great way for my clients and I to stay on track and meet our weight loss goals, I wanted to work with them to get all of the Cook Your Butt Off! recipes in their database of 350,000+ foods.
On each recipe page you’ll find a Fitbit barcode. Simply scan it with the Fitbit app, and the calories and nutritional data will be automatically logged to your private Fitbit account.
And, if you’re using a Fitbit tracker while you cook, you’ll see how many calories you burn as you create each recipe – proving that you’re really cooking your butt off!
We’re so excited to share this book with you that we’re giving away 25 copies! Just tweet @fitbit using the hashtag #CookYourButtOff, letting us know how you keep healthy in your kitchen, to enter. We’ll be choosing winners after March 4th. You can view the contest rules here.
