I have been using this app for 4 months and have found it very helpful for calorie tracking and weight loss. The food database is extensive, and scanning in barcodes makes tracking quick and easy when you are very busy. The user interface is intuitive, and the calorie budgets are realistic and sustainable as long as you are choosing a healthy rate of loss for your current weight. As with any app like this, it is a tool and you should be smart about making sure your plan is safe and healthy. I bought a premium subscription after using the app for a few months, which adds more info about nutrient profiles of your food and trends in your habits that contribute or take away from your progress. I can see myself using this app for a long period of time far past when I reach my goal. I have tried going off tracking in the past after weight loss, and have found that the good habits with healthy eating you gained slip away quite quickly in the face of the stresses of everyday life. I would encourage people to try this app for a few weeks and see how you like it; this sort of thing is all about personal preference. You should look for something that is sustainable in the long term as opposed to a ‘diet’, since the changes you make should be lifelong if you hope to keep up your healthy results long term. You may or may not want premium; many people find the free version is more than sufficient.
I’ve tried all the calorie counting apps. This one is significantly better than them all. If you’re *serious* about losing or maintaining weight, pay the $30 yearly subscription. Trust me. I used the free version for a while. Once I ponied up, I began to learn so much more about where my nutrients were coming from. And it wasn’t information overload. And that enabled me to make better food choices. I lost 9 pounds in the first week just from reducing (not eliminating!) a few items that were killing me, like sauces/condiments. I’m sure that rate of weight loss will slow down—9 pounds in a week is a LOT. Probably a lot of water and sodium weight. Regardless, I’m on the path now. And I’m smarter than I ever was before about what I put in my body. The app will give you insights into foods that slow down your progress as well as keep you on the right track. For example, I now know that if I eat a certain amount of carbs/fat/protein for breakfast, I’m more likely to stay under my caloric goal for that day. If I skip breakfast, which I used to do often and thought it helped me by skipping those calories, I end up consuming far more calories throughout the day and busting my daily caloric goal. I didn’t realize I was doing this until I got the paid version of this app. Plus, paying for something will make you more accountable and encourage you to see it through to your goal. It’s $30. It works. Period.
I’ve been using Lose It! for about 3 weeks now and have already lost about 6 pounds. The idea of just having to scan a barcode is super easy and it’s hard to forget to log your meal because you always gotta eat! Plus, being a student on the go all of the time and having sports makes it difficult to actually use workout apps but this app is so simple and easy to use. And, if you’re in a hurry and couldn’t log a meal the day before you can always go back and edit your past days if you left something out and it will still process the info. One thing to be careful of however is not eating. There was one time where I knew I was going out and knew I was going to be over my calories and was tempted to skip breakfast but skipping meals is not a good thing to do!!! It’s okay to be over your calorie budget a little, never feel inclined to always meet the goal. Having this app made me realize what I was putting into my body(I have the free version but it still displays macros which is super helpful.) This app combined with the app ActivityTracker is the perfect duo! Enter in the distance you walked at the end of the day from ActivityTracker on Lose It! and you’ll get calories added onto your calorie budget! I DEFINITELY recommend this app as I recommend it to all of my friends and anyone I know who is looking to lose weight and I hope you become as satisfied with Lose It! as I am! :)
After my second child my weight just stayed. I was told by my OB that at my sons one year birthday the weight that you have then tends to become your new average. My son was six months old and my weight was not budging, I knew I had to do something but didn’t know how or have the energy to do something complicated. I found out about loose it through reading a blog about calorie deficiency. I knew this seemed like the most logical & healthy way to loose weight and start a better lifestyle but the idea of tracking everything was off putting and seemed to hard. This app (I’m using the free version) is amazing! I’m down approx 3lbs in a week and a half and I’m not hungry. I’m not eating in a way that is not sustainable and the tracker makes it so easy to log and to see what is cased my day to be a success or a failure. I might also add that I started the week of vacation over 4th of July & I still saw success even with going over a few days. Because the tracker makes you aware of what you’re eating even when you “cheat” you’re aware of when and by how much. If you’re thinking about trying to loose weight & are not sure how to start I would highly recommend trying this app. It holds your hand, steps you through & links you to community for support. Good luck to anyone starting- here’s to a healthy, happy lifestyle & leaving Fad diets in the dirt!
The Lose It program has been one of the best and easiest ways for me to stay consistent on a weight loss program. I have tried others including Weight Watchers which is also great, but I like “Lose It” because you are your own best enabler of choosing what to eat and how much. Even the basic program has enabled me to stick to the plan for recording what I eat and seeing progress towards a goal. It is realistic and gives encouragement even if you go over your daily allotment and the end of the day report helps you to see that sticking to good eating habits results in better success. It is so helpful to have the exercise portion to enable you to add calories if you want. I have lost 15 pounds thus far and have told both my Primary Care Physician and Cardiologist about your program. They are both pleased and have encouraged me to stick to it! I feel I am in control of my success and can continue for a lifetime - thank you to whoever created it. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out which number of calories to choose with combination foods especially but I guess no matter what choice you write down it is better than not doing it at all. Slow and steady has been my pace for almost 4 months including a major emergency surgery for a ruptured appendix. My daughter who also uses your program actually tracked for me those days!! So thanks again and I will keep on tracking!
