Help with FitBit

I bought myself a Fitbit Charge 2 in the New Year sales, but am having problems with it. I’ve set it all up, and have been wearing it for a few days, but so far I’ve not lost any weight, or got any healthier. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?!?!

    <p>You need to have a diet of heavy fat and no carbs, as per Paul's science diet. </p>

        <blockquote><a href="#236238"><em>In reply to Tim:</em></a></blockquote><p>There is not doubt that Keto diet helps with weight loss but that doesn't equate to health as Paul claims. I mean, I could cut off an arm and lose weight but is doesn't make me a healthier person. There is also nothing about keto that promotes aerobic fitness. It would be great if you could alter your VO2 Max and work capacity by diet but the only way to do it is by putting in the work. </p>

    <p>Cut the sugar! It’s just empty carbs!</p>

    <p>You need to exercise more and eat less. According to this report, Weight Watchers is the best diet for weight loss:</p><p><br></p><p></p>

    <p>Wow, my faith in the Internet has been restored. There was I making a dumb joke about 'just wearing' the Fitbit wasn't making me healthier, and you guys give me constructive advice!</p>

    <p>If you're having trouble reaching you step goals, try turning on GPS and driving your car around the block a few times. Or if a small child is available, try attaching it to their ankle and giving them a sack of Skittles.</p>
