What do gay men eat for breakfast?
We recently did a survey on the breakfast habits of gay men around the world — one of the clear results is the high proportion of men who start their day by eating breakfast cereal (48%).

What’s wrong with cereal?
Quick and easy to eat, and often quite tasty, it’s not difficult to understand why breakfast cereal is such a popular choice.

The problem with breakfast cereal is that is even if you opt for something that is low in sugar and high in fibre, you’re subjecting your body to a big intake of gluten.

The paleo diet
There’s obviously quite a bit of debate and conflicting research among nutritionists, but most guys who are super-serious about their diet and fitness, tend to lean towards the “paleo” approach which advocates limiting the intake of gluten in favour of a high protein and vegetable diet.

Eat like a caveman
In simplistic terms, you’re trying to replicate the diet of your genetic ancestors — the thinking is that when a “caveman” started the day, they either snacked on some of the left-overs from the night before — lean wild meat — or they grabbed some nearby nuts and berries until they were able to hunt for some more meat or fish.

What’s wrong with gluten?
As it’s a relatively new introduction to the human diet, in evolutionary terms, there is quite a bit of evidence suggesting that gluten can be difficult for the body to digest and process and may result in gluten sensitivity.

Symptoms of gluten sensitivity include bloating, abdominal discomfort, pain or diarrhoea, or it may present with a variety of extra-intestinal symptoms including headaches and migraines, lethargy and tiredness, attention-deficit disorder and hyperactivity, schizophrenia, muscular disturbances as well as bone and joint pain.

What should you eat for breakfast?

  • If you’ve got time — fry up some eggs or a small steak with some spinach on the side.
  • If you’re in a rush — grab a handful of nuts and some berries and stop for something more substantial when you get to work.
  • It’s time to look beyond breakfast cereal.

Once you step into the scale and follow the instructions in your app, the scale will start turning and the scanning process begins. The process takes approximately 15 seconds.

In the end, you will have a faithful reproduction of your body and a ‘holistic suite of metrics’ including body fat percent, lean mass and fat mass, circumferences, side-by-side comparisons and graphs of historical data.

The company promises to keep working on their proprietary algorithm to give users the most accurate results possible.

“Today, people are searching for evidence-based methods to track health and fitness that aren’t solely focused on weight” says Farhad Farahbakshian, co-Founder and CEO of Naked Labs, who hopes to open the door for a whole set of developments that will allow a whole range of other products and services ‘designed for your body’.

You can also opt to share your data with Naked Labs for research purposes but the company assures that all data will be decoupled from personally identifiable information.

The Naked 3D Fitness tracker is currently only available in the U.S. for $1,395 with the next shipment being in Winter.
