"Keep yourself honest to lose weight"

Reviewed by / Oct 10, 2013

Track daily diet and activity levels over time

It's been demonstrated time and again that the best strategy for getting in shape is to keep track of the relationship between your diet, exercise, and results over time. Lose It! is a popular nutrition app that will help you keep yourself honest about your fitness progress, allowing you to keep data on your daily eating and activity level habits.

Each day you'll select what you've eaten from the enormous database of foods, including both generic and name-brand products, and Lose It! will calculate both your calorie intake and macronutrient ratios. Do the same with your exercise, indicating type of activity, intensity, and duration, and those calories burned will be automatically subtracted from your daily total. Your target caloric intake will depend on your personal goal - how much weight do you want to lose, and how quickly?

The visuals incorporated into the Lose It! app are appealing - many of the food choices have cute icons, making it more fun to use than other more minimalist apps designed to record information. There's also automatic syncing with your account on the Lose It! website, allowing you to connect with other users and offer support and encouragement.

One big drawback if you're an international user is the lack of a metric system option, which explains why this app is more popular in the United States than elsewhere. If you're comfortable with the Imperial measurement system and looking for a way to start tracking your diet and fitness, Lose It! is a good choice to help you reach your weight loss goals.

    A great app and the only reason i still carry my iPhone with me. If I just had the apk to install it on my android device I could finally get rid of the iPhone...

    Maybe about 6 to 9 months ago, the option popped up to set up a daily reminder to update your daily log (food, exercise, weight, etc.). I selected that option. I now want to turn this notification reminder off. For the life of me, I cannot locate this option ANYWHERE!! Originally, it was on the home page of the app. when it was offered. Now, in all the settings and preferences, I cannot locate any

    Logging your food works. Although there are other apps, free or paid, that can do the job, I like the colorful interface best, and the website is even better. The proof is in the results: 35 lbs in 5 months.

    I love this app and the online support (forum board) and challenges are amazing! Logging your calories is the KEY to weight loss. . . true, permanent weight loss.

    Put the decimal point on the same "page" as all the numbers.

    This app made coutning calories painless and more like a game where you have so much calorie money to spend each day rather than a horrible dieting experience. I have been trying to lose weight for a few years now as a new teacher and previous stressed out college student with no time to focus on food. Now I have lost over twenty pounds in five months! :)
