Have you been trying to eat a little healthier and exercise more lately? We get it. Pretty much everyone feels that way when winter is on its way out and spring is near. It’s good to feel healthier about yourself and feel a little more in shape. We think we’ve got the perfect smart scales to help facilitate that. Even better, they cost just $30.

The Renpho Bluetooth Body Fat Scales offer exactly what you need from smart scales, which is precisely why we featured them in our look at the best smart scales. In all, the scales offer 13 different forms of body composition data. These include your fat-free body weight, your regular weight, your BMI, body fat percentage, muscle mass, body water, visceral fat, bone mass, BMR, protein levels, metabolic age, skeletal muscle, and subcutaneous fat levels. It all works via some high-sensitivity sensors and electrodes that ensure you get precise body measurements with the latest Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA).

With so much information at your fingertips, you’ll learn a lot more about your body than simply your weight. After all, those stark figures only tell part of the story, and things like your body fat percentage and bone mass are far more important to a healthy lifestyle.

Once you’ve gained these figures, you can then use the Renpho app to sync the data with all your favorite fitness apps like Samsung Health, Apple Health, Google Fit, and the Fitbit app. Knowledge is power and a great way of keeping you motivated toward your fitness goals. The app can give you an overview and help you track your daily, weekly, and monthly progress so you can see exactly how you’re doing.

Far superior to a traditional weight scale, the Renpho Bluetooth Body Fat Scales are a great addition to your fitness arsenal. They work with an unlimited number of users, too, so the whole family can track their progress without any issues.

Lightweight and slim, the Renpho Bluetooth Body Fat Scales will look good in your bathroom, and you can easily store it out of the way as needed. Ordinarily priced at $50, these scales are just $30, which makes for an even sweeter deal than usual.

Keto vs ketovore diet: What’s the difference?
All about the Ketovore diet
Steak

Estimated to reach $12.35 billion by the end of 2024, the keto diet is one of the fastest-growing diet trends in the country -- and for good reason. While originally used to help treat patients with epilepsy, the ketogenic diet is now used widely by people looking to achieve optimal health and improve various health conditions. A ketogenic diet, in its basic form, is a diet that is high in fat and low in carbohydrates. People who follow a keto diet aim to achieve a state of nutritional ketosis, allowing the body to use fat for fuel.  While the keto diet remains popular, you may have heard the term "ketovore" floating around social media. But what exactly is the ketovore diet?

What is the ketovore diet?
The ketovore diet is an unofficial term (not a scientific word) that describes a diet that mixes a standard keto diet and the carnivore diet. You might also hear the ketovore diet referred to as keto carnivore or a meat-heavy keto diet.  The carnivore diet is a stricter form of the keto diet that involves eating only meat and animal by-products. Those on a carnivore diet do not consume other low-carb foods, such as vegetables, nuts, or seeds. Unlike a ketogenic diet that often involves consuming about 20 to 50 grams of carbohydrates per day, the carnivore diet is zero-carb and far more restrictive.

Can’t do pull ups? You need this simple addition to your workout routine

There's no doubt that a pull-up is one of the most challenging exercises to master. Not only does a pull-up require a strong upper body, but it also requires grip strength and core stability. Even for people who regularly do killer back exercises at the gym, a pull-up is a different type of motion than that of many strength training exercises -- making it difficult even for those with a strong back. However, with time, patience, and dedication, anyone can master the pull-up.

There are many approaches to pull-up training, such as using an assisted pull-up machine or performing negative reps. Ultimately, a combination of techniques and exercises can help your body gradually get used to pull-ups and improve over time. Using a pull-up band is a great way for beginners of any skill level to start practicing a pull-up motion. Here's how.
