    what type of Heart Rate Monitor

    I have recently been trying to get back into some sort of shape, but upon reading a lot of info, think that I am training out of my heart rate zone...I am not losing weight like I should Be (I think) and am tired all the time.

    After reading "In Fitness and in Health", I think my problem is not building enough of an aerobic base....I think I am trying to get all my energy from sugars, instead of burning fat.

    So, I want to get a heart rate monitor...probably off of e-bay...I don't want a lot of fancy functions...just a bottom and top zone alarm, and a watch.

    Any suggestions, please?

    well, after some searching, I think I am going with the Sigma PC 7 or 14.

    need to get a book, too

    You might try Nashbar or Performance, they have some cheap HRM's now. Some come with 2 yr warranty which in some cases is invalidated by ebay.

    The mid-range polars are fine. I just bought a different brand - one from sportsinstruments for my wife which seems to be a good product, but we can't figure out how to get the average heart rate - it disapears after you quit using it.

    You might be able to get something else cheaper, but I'm really impressed with the features the new polar CS100 and CS200 monitors have. A lot more features for the same price I paid for my S150 in January.
