After four or five kids (maybe six; at least that many are here for lunch every Saturday), mommy’s tummy just isn’t what it used to be. Instead of looking into the mirror and feeling bad about it, I can scan my belly fat and feel bad from a technology perspective.
A Korean company called Olive Healthcare has debuted a new device called the Bello; it scans your belly and reveals what percentage of your tissues, blood, and guts is fat.
So, what’s the skinny on Bello?
While the Bello is focused on the belly, it’s not actually supposed to be a dieting device; Bello is supposedly for healthcare. Fat on your stomach, as opposed to, say, your butt, may be an indicator, for example, of how at risk women post menopause may be for diabetes or metabolic health disorders. Measuring your belly fat with the purpose of decreasing it over time could theoretically help you be healthier in the long run, not just skinnier in the short term.
Skinny. How quaint.
