Naked Labs launched the World’s first 3D body scanner for consumers allowing you to measure your whole body from the comfort of your home.

Naked is a full-length 3D scanning smart mirror with a connected rotating scale and companion app that allows users to track body changes over time.

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’.

The company also ensures users that all their data will be securely stored and won’t be shared with anyone unless the user decided to do so. 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.

Naked Labs is currently not accepting international order.

You can reserve yours at Naked Labs website for $250.

Whatever level you’re currently at with your health and fitness, it’s important to make sure that you’re getting enough protein in your diet.

Our bodies use protein to build and repair tissue. Our bodies also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other essential chemicals — it’s an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

Here’s how you can make boost your protein intake.

Eat a steak

  • Not a great option if you’re vegetarian, but eating a high quality beef steak is one of the easiest ways to give your body a big boost of protein.
  • Go for the best-quality steak that you can find — cuts such as sirloin or rib-eye are generally the easiest to prepare.
  • Fry your steak quickly in a hot pan and season with some salt and dried herbs.

Protein shake

  • There is some logic behind downing a protein shake immediately after an intense session in the gym.
  • Studies have demonstrated that the body best absorbs protein after exercise, so after training does give you a window which technically is the best time to refuel.
  • Do some research on your protein shakes. There’s lots of ready-mixed options that are actually a bit of a waste of time. Also, milk-based protein powders can be difficult for your body to process.

Go nuts

  • Packed full of protein, nuts are super-tasty and a great snack.
  • Try and go for organic nuts that haven’t been roasted and salted.
  • Almonds, Brazil nuts, and Walnuts should probably be your top choice, but mix it up and keep it interesting.
  • Organic nut pastes can be used instead of things such as processed peanut butter.

Off the shelf

  • There’s lots of off-the-shelf snacks that will make bold claims about how much protein is contained within them. Some of them taste better than others, but generally they’re fairly rubbish.
  • In an emergency, I’ll often opt for a product called Bounce Protein Ball — a surprisingly tasty squidgy ball of protein. The Almond version is particular good. A 49g ball delivers 12g of protein. The good news is that there’s no trans fats and it’s gluten free.
