In 2013, when David Stewart tipped the scales at 200 pounds, he slapped on a Fitbit, thinking it’d be a quick way to shed the weight. Instead, the opposite happened.
The activity band tracked his sleep and exercise and gave him a goal of 10,000 steps a day — approximately five miles — to complete. But every time the 5-foot-6 tech manager from Crown Heights would meet his fitness plan, he’d gorge on pizza, doughnuts or ice cream, gaining more than 20 pounds over the course of four months.
“It just gave me a license to let me eat whatever I wanted,” Stewart, now 45, tells The Post. “It’s a good tool to keep you active, but it’s nothing more than a tool.”
