At least, for most laypeople. There are a lot of pitfalls, some well-described in this article @medium.
But one that this author didn’t take much time to describe was the minutiae-feedback distraction. Big changes sometimes require blinders and an unperturbed stampede-like charge straight ahead. For most people, getting more muscular is going to require larger gains in bodyweight than a tracker would happily support. And getting significantly leaner is going to take a lot more depletion than people have the stomach for. I’ve seen 100% of diligent users lose sight of macro level trends by obsessing about day-to-day or week-to-week micro-changes.
Getting wrapped up in half pound increments (or pick your minutiae distraction) is counterproductive. Keep going, despite the tracker’s beeps and blips. If you’re going to use one, use it to create more productive strategy, NOT emotional feedback.
