Diet Bracelets AKA/ The Abascus Diet for a Beach Ready Body

Diet bracelets (also known as the abacus diet) according to Marie Claire, celebrities like actress Kate Beckinsale and Australian songbird Delta Goodrem use beaded bracelets to help them keep track of calories throughout the day. Each bead represents a set number of calories, depending on the number of beads. As you eat, you slide the beads to keep track of the number of calories you take in.

Weight Watchers sells a “points counter” bracelet that is based on a similar concept but incorporates their point system rather than calories. Copyright and patents on this product may make it difficult to find online, but it’s fairly simple to make your own.

The next obvious question, anybody out there tried it???
