I love this the app and it’s layout! It’s motivating easy to use and very helpful. But it keeps crashing! It’s the only app on my phone that does this so I know it’s the app that’s the problem. I hope that they fix it so I can give it the 5 star rating it deserves!
Beautiful app, ratings make no sense 4/5
By Maya the Bee
It's a beautiful app that I enjoy using every day. The benefits for paying $30+ a year aren’t normally enough to make me go premium, but I would just to support the work of the team building lifesum. The ONLY thing keeping me from upgrading is the weird payment system. It’s monthly but managed by where you upgraded (iTunes or website) and the only way to cancel is to take it up with Apple, or whoever handles the payment. If canceling a subscription with lifesum directly, it looks like you email them and hope they’ll come through on manually cancelling. It’s just not worth the potential headache later. I would rather pay a one-time fee than deal with a weird, fragmented subscription model.
I was so excited to find an app geared towards use with the ketogenic diet! What a disappointment to see that I cannot use any of the features the app has to offer without making monthly payments. Truly upsetting that the app is only a good log unless you pay a fee. 👎🏼
Obsessed, Small Problem 3/5
I'm OBSESSED with this app. I've been testing it out for the week before paying for the subscription but I'm really happy so far. It's very helpful and a great tool for those who want to loose weight, just get in shape or stay on track. It's got a hand food journal and a lot of really positive aspects.
Negative: it crashes. A lot. Like, every time I open the app I can preform up to 6 actions before it boots back to the home screen. It just started having issues in the last hour or so but it's being seriously problematic now. Super annoying.
Crashes when trying to view recipes 1/5
I just purchased a 12 month sub and I can’t look at any of the premium content. As soon as the recipe list starts to load the app crashes. Simply unusable.
It’s a great app but I feel like having to update to premium is pointless for the users

This app is easy to use and really motivating. It's very convenient to track food with and can track steps you've taken, weight loss or gain, exercise, water intake, etc. I've had this app for 7 days and have lost 7 lbs. Now granted, a good 4 of these pounds are probably from carb stores but I highly recommend this. I usually quit a diet or lifestyle change two days in and I'm already so excited to see how this app will keep me motivated. I've seen my mood increase and my face thin out too. Now yes, this would have happened if I made these changes without the app but the app is just so pretty and easy to use and track foods with it makes my part soooo much easier. I'm very excited for the future!
Edit (9 months later): I have had this app since March and I have now lost a total of 55 pounds and with the help and motivation of the app have also gone completely plant based and vegan. I am so proud of myself and can’t wait to continue to loose weight and get to my goal with this app!
Update was on point 5/5
By Dj dabbed out
I was hoping you guys would soon introduce recommended meals since I never know how a balanced meal will look, but now you have a selection of breakfast lunch dinner and snack recipes which gives me an awesome selection to choose from. You guys are awesome please keep updating more recipes.
Love it!!! 5/5
By Ashleyyyyy E
Amazing and so detailed which makes it so helpful?
Okay but can’t edit or add food 3/5
Overall, I like that I can set the app to my goals. However, a lot of foods on it are incredibly wrong. Comparing a label to what the app says shows a huge indiscretion, so I doubt a lot of the numbers I get. I also can’t seem to find a way to edit or add new foods. It’s a bit unfortunate since this is one of the few apps focused on the Keto diet.
Doesn’t work with Health 1/5
I’ve used Lifesum for seven days. Lifesum has written bad “dietary energy“ data to Apple Health every single day.
Example: today I consumed 2,349 kcal, but Lifesum reports only 977 kcal to Apple Health.
So I have to ask: What good is a calorie-counting app that can’t count?
Answer: The app isn’t any good at all.
Don’t spend any money on this app until the developers fix this. Otherwise, you won’t get your money’s worth, and instead you’ll feel like a gullible idiot.
Judgmental with no explanation. 2/5
This app is well made. However, it rates your food choices with smiley faces and frowny faces...I eat very healthy, I just wanted this app to help keep track of protein intake. I entered a banana as a snack and it showed me a frowny face...so now bananas are bad for you!?? When I clicked on the face to get more information as to why it is labeled with a frown face, ofcourse it says you have to upgrade to premium. It’s EXTREMELY LIMITED if you don’t pay for the premium. Disappointed. Don’t need an app telling me I shouldn’t eat a banana. Going back to LoseIt app.
Love it ❤️ 5/5
I’ve never been good at tracking what I eat. I started putting on some weight and decided I need to know where my calories are going. Lifesum shows me good choices, bad choices and where I stand at the end of the day. The notifications are great encouragement to drink, eat or move. It syncs with my Fitbit so I know what I burn and what I eat. And that’s just the beginning! There are diet plans, recipes, blogs and so much more to help you get to where you want to be.
Very disappointed 3/5
Ever since the app was updated awhile back you can’t add food or water from the Apple Watch. It reminds you sometimes on the watch, but when you click to add food or water it doesn’t change anything in the app on the phone.
By Zasu Pitts Fan
I’m learning that I do better when I keep track of the food I eat.
I’m a recently diagnosed diabetic and this is helping me stay on task.
Perpetuating eating disorders 1/5
I downloaded this app filled out my profile and the first thing it told me to do was fast twice a week? WHAT? How on earth is that a healthy diet plan at all? Deleted the app right away.
Very annoyed 2/5
Will update if changed,
However when I put in my weight it keeps saying are you sure this isn’t an error try a new number ....
Can’t even get passed the beginning part.
Love it 5/5
Very simple not full of advertising
Would be perfect if there was a setting to have it track NET carbs! Please!!!!!!
A good app, but I would like to see how close I was to my goal weight. 4/5
I like this app because the faces show how good a certain food is, and then the overall meal. All the tracking apps have various apps that are only available if you buy the premium version, I wish that this one would offer an “end of the day” or sum of everything you ate, without having to buy the premium version.
No funciona bien con el Apple Watch ⌚️ 2/5
La aplicación no está adaptada para funcionar con Apple Watch ⌚️llevo una semana con el Paquete Premium y todo lo tengo que hacer directamente desde el celular por qué desde El Apple Watch la aplicación no sirve solo sale una manzana moviéndose y nada más.
Awesomesauce 😊 5/5
I really like this app. I just wish I could manually add Carb count.
By Vulgar demos
Not so good 1/5
App freezes up all the time. Can’t do much with it any ways because don’t pay a monthly fees!
Weight options 1/5
So I’m underweight and every time I put my weight in they say its wrong, but it’s my weight! It won’t let me continue.
Where's the Paleo Option? 4/5
This is a really neat app, and I'm trying to get back to a paleo diet. I thought an app might be a good way to hold myself accountable. Buuuut, the closest thing to paleo is the keto diet. So if you search recipes that are paleo, you will only find 1. I like everything else about the app. :)
No Opt. For Net Carbs 1/5
For a product that is advertised to be Keto friendly, I was sad to have spent the money to find out that this app does not take fiber or sugar alcohols (swerve) into account when counting your carbs for the day. I want those motivational smiley faces, but I won’t get them if I keep eating veggies.
Love it! 5/5
I really like LifeSum! It’s the best meal planning app i’ve ever used. I just wish they had an intermittent fasting plan. Otherwise, I’m very happy with the results i’m getting with this app and i’m on the road to a healthier lifestyle :)
It looked like a nice app but being forced to pay a subscription for this is BS. I’m going back to my fitness pal. I just wanted to see a breakdown of my daily nutrition without giving them my money 🙄
Horrible new icon 1/5
The new app icon looks like it has failed to install. It’s like a cheese grater to my eyeballs on my precious first home screen page. PLEASE FIX IT!!!
I’ve gone from app to app but this one has helped me the most!
Almost perfect 4/5
By Annie get your Gun!
Love everything about it! A few things would make it a touch better! It would be great if it had more standard measurements! And it would be great if when you accidentally put food in the wrong time of the day to have an easy way to just switch the meal time rather then RE enter it!
Unwanted subscriptions 1/5
This is a great app. However , when I got a new phone the subscription did not transfer over. When I tried to reactivate it on my new phone I was charged for a whole new subscription.
I’m really enjoying the app 4/5
It has been helping me to track my carb intake. It has great trackers for just about everything.
I just wish that it had menu programs for diabetics (watching their carb intake) and a Paleo program.
It works for me! 5/5
Lifesum just works for me, the UI is just great and I enjoy tracking with it.
Haven’t bought the premium yet, but I probably will soon.
This is a great tool ❤️❤️❤️❤️!!!
Love it, but one small bug 5/5
I've been using Lifesum for about 10 days now, and I really enjoy using it. It's simple, and easy to use. My goal with Lifesum is to help me eat more, since I under eat a lot. While my under eating problems have been getting better since using Lifesum, there is one bug that kinda annoys me. Whenever I log a meal, it says that it is a few calories under, which is a really helpful aspect of this app. Sometimes, this feature bugs out, and gives the incorrect number of calories under. For example, if I log 200 calories of food, it will say that I am 200 calories under the minimum goal, which isn't true. Hopefully this bug will be fixed soon, because it's really driving me crazy.
I love this app so far. I only wish there were more recipes. The other thing is that whenever I tried to upgrade to try the full version, I couldn’t because my payment method is none. I use iTune cards. Would you please solve this problem.
Love this ! 4/5
I love this app! It has helped me so much to keep track of what I am eating! Only thing I wish is that it was cheaper :( I can’t afford the premium version I am on the free trial as of now but I’m scared of when it expires I will gain my weight back ugh!! :(
Great app! And free!!! 5/5
Great app! And free!!!
Not the best option 2/5
Switched to Lifesum from MyFitnessPal just to try something different. Aesthetics is pretty much all this app has going for it. The emojis that judge your meal choices are cool, but when the food info isn’t correct, they’re not much help. The search database is completely off calorie-wise and most things are misspelled (even cell phones have spell check now..), so if you don’t have a barcode on what you’re eating, you’re screwed. I found myself Googling how many calories were actually in foods - most of the time, MyFitnessPal was the first search result - and adding it manually. When you add manually, you can only input calories, no other nutrition info. Also, with MyFitnessPal, you get recipes/articles without upgrading to premium.
Lost 16 pounds! 4/5
I love this app, the only thing is that I input my weight years ago, before I started using it. Since then I gained weight, and lost 16 pounds once using the app. However, it used to say “gained 2 pounds” since I was 2 pounds heavier in total than I was a while ago. Now it says “lost 3 pounds”. It would be nice to update my weight retroactively so it accurately shows “lost 16 pounds”
Share meals and recipes 3/5
Decent app, needs a better food database. Would be great if you could share meals/recipes. My wife and I are both on a Keto diet and frequently dine together and eat the same thing. It would be great if we could “eat together” or at least I could send her my meal so she didn’t also have to manually build out the meal or recipe. You release that and this’ll get updated to 5 stars for sure!
I can’t even start... 2/5
So I’m underweight and I’m trying to gain weight to get healthier. I tried starting with the gaining weight option, but it doesn’t believe me when I say I’m 82.3 lbs. (My BMI is 16.6) so I can’t continue because it just keeps asking me if that’s the right number :( makes me sad cause this seemed like an alright app that could help me out
Okay so far; but UI issues take away from experience 3/5
It’s an okay experience so far because of UI issues. Swiping to go back in Settings is broken. If I’m in settings and tap “Personal Details,” for example, and then swipe back, I won’t return to the Settings menu I was in. The app will glitch out and send me back to my “Profile” page. Please fix!
klutzy and then stuck in ui 2/5
look it is not that complicated. just want to enter a generic set of favorites to populate my daily diet.
as this is what i wanted, i find this wont support this without repeating search and adding to meals for each day and each meal.
consequently i am searching for something else or write my own
Goede app 4/5
Goede app maar kon mijn echte gewicht niet invoeren ant hij zei dat dat niet kon. Enige min punt.
Total waste of money 1/5
I paid for premium in order to get access to the so called “diet plans.” What a waste of money. There are no actual meal plans associated with the selected diet plan, just a very brief explanation of what you should and shouldn’t eat. However, you can browse through the limited list of recipes that they have to build your own meal plans. That is tedious though because not all of the recommended recipes are appropriate for your selected diet plan. There is also a feature where you can select diet preferences and allergies. That doesn’t seem to inform any of the recommendations either as most of my recommended meals contained dairy of which I’m allergic to. This app was a total waste of time and money.
New update keeps crashing 4/5
Dies after about 10 seconds on iPhone 5s. Loved previous versions. Need to get it fixed. I am using the latest version of iOS.
Good & Bad 3/5

Gives good information & comes in handy but for the information you really need to know you have to pay for sooo..,
STOP WORKING DO NOT TRY 1/5
Stupid app stopped working!!
