Cool APP 5/5
Help keep me on track with nutrition and fitness goals.
Love it!! 5/5
Not only is it super cute and visually pleasing, it's really helping me figure out how I can become a healthier vegetarian, soon to be vegan, and (mostly) raw vegan sometime in the future! Thank you!!
Lifesum is so amazing! I love it!
Goal weight not working 2/5
It doesn't let me enter a goal weight. No matter what number I enter it asks me " are u sure this is the no u want to enter? Try a different no." Can u plz fix it
Not Recommended 3/5
The app itself seems fine. The lay out is ok. There isn't much information thoughz
Good App, but not enough options for free version 3/5
By Spanish Sponge bob
This app is fun. It has great visuals and is pretty easy to use. The only thing I have a problem with is how little you can get for the free version. I understand that you want us to get the premium version, but having just a few more options for the free version would be appreciated.
Best Nutrition Tracking App EVER! 5/5
This app is the best app for tracking not just calories but nutrition! You can see your macronutrients, calories and foods for the day. Very easy to find any foods you have eaten in their database. Also LOVE that they give you an option to be on meal plans and rank your day based on the plan. For example, I eat low carb so I'm on their Keto diet program that way it tells me when I've eaten too many carbs. Most apps will only tell you the standard American diet recommendations, but this one has multiple options! Highly recommend!
One dangerous detail 4/5
This is a clever app with great graphics but I am alarmed at how it seems to encourage undereating. I have it set to the "maintain weight" setting, but the best daily ratings I get are on days when I go to bed hungry. The best day rating I've gotten so far, I was 500 calories under the recommended value. Please fix this -- as a person who has struggled with being underweight in the past, this feature makes me very nervous.
Great app! The only thing is I wish it would suggest meals/foods based on the carbs/fats/protein intake.
Like if throughout the day you had more carbs than needed, but too little protein, I wish the app would send a reminder like "we suggest you have cottage cheese for dinner".
Recent update 1/5
The recent update makes my app fail to sync with my Fitbit app. Even if I sync it manually. Fix this.
Great app but... 4/5
Maybe it's just me but I find it frustrating to calculate serving sizes. Too many entries available for the same food item.
Automatic setting not working after the update 3/5
Hate to break the bad news, but since the update yesterday my automatic tracking is not working. I tried reset everything and no luck so far. I have a premium account and use an iPhone 7 with the latest iOS 10 update available.
Good App, but not as advertised 2/5
My fiancée and I both purchased the one year premium subscription ($45 apiece), only to find out that the feature allowing you to copy food/meals from a friend's diary had been removed for some reason, despite it still being advertised. It can be somewhat cumbersome to find and add all of the ingredients for a home cooked meal, so we were looking forward to only having to do it once per meal, not twice!
I contacted support trying to figure out why we couldn't manage to copy food from each other's diaries as explained on the Lifesum forum. I was told that this was a feature available in the "old social" that didn't make it over to the "new social".
We love most of the features of the app, but we are feeling a little bit screwed over when we bought something that didn't turn out to be what was advertised, and then we're basically left hanging with no recourse by customer support. If Lifesum brings this feature back, I'll update my review accordingly.
Amazing & Helpful 5/5
Definitely download this app, it's easy to use & keeps you motivated. I've never felt healthier & I'm going to keep going
Still searching for a single, smart app 2/5
Out of the nutrition apps I've tried this one is the most visually pleasing and easy to use. However the simplicity overlooks features and makes this app unappealing to me. I just bought myself and Apple Watch and want a system that is fully integrated without redundancies, but Lifesum comes up short in its integration.
First - the water tracker. I was excited that this app mentioned a water tracker and reminders, I'd rather have this integrated and not part of a separate app. However the tracker is separate from the food diary, meaning if you enter coffee or juice or water in a main diary entry the water tracker will not update, and you have to redundantly enter your glasses of water. I even had a glass of water logged in my Apple Health info already but the app didn't recognize it proving that it is not a "smart" tracker. Also, this is a small issue, but the glass of water size is 8.45oz and bottle water size is 16.91oz? Not my cups, which fill comfortably at 8oz, or mugs that hold 6oz, and I have water bottles of varying sizes but cannot choose accurate amounts.
Vegetable and fruit trackers - I was really excited about the idea that the app would analyze my food intake and send me notifications based on the types of food I needed to eat. However, as mentioned above, trackers work independently from the food diary so if you eat fruit you then have redundantly enter the fruit serving. I'm sure there is difficulty in determining if certain food items contain fruit/vegetables or count as a real fruit/veggie serving, but I'm not willing to scroll through the app to enter the same food twice.
I will update this as I learn more about the app
Closes after only being open 30sec 3/5
With the new update, app crashes after only being open for 30 seconds (even when I don't tap or touch the screen). Other than that, I really like the app!
This app has been an amazing way to keep track of water and everything I eat and enjoy doing it!!
By Bryce Mac
I really like it, provides me with what I need to eat more of and eat less of
I like this app a lot! I do wish you didn't have to pay monthly though since I can't afford it. The features look nice though!
Great app if you want to pay for a subscription.... 2/5
Absolutely useless unless you pay for a subscription. At $4 a month I feel the app should at least automatically input the food I eat for me and knock me on the back of the head when I go for my ninth donut.
okay at first 2/5
the app was great at first then after a while kept trying to force premium on me. it repeatedly crashed and wouldn't let me do anything. everything i clicked it popped up with a add for premium. just deleted the app.
Like it so far 5/5
So far I like it. Navigation is a little clunky at first but it certainly has what I'm looking for. I needed an app for some guidance on diet and this seems helpful. Update: man honestly it's great, the only problem I ever have with this app is m forgetting to fill it in. Needs a reminder notification but
LOVE. THIS. best fitness app I could find. I can't afford the premium right now.. so the options are limited. However I love the calorie counter. Very helpful.
Love it! 4/5
I have desisted from trying the premium version due to the recent reviews but I love the basic, especially the bar code option! It is fast to add food to your diary and easy to make improvements to your diet by keeping track. It is missing a few features and could be improved but it serves its purpose.
Has potential 3/5
I really love the interface of the app, and has pretty good basic functions, but I wish it had more. Other users have great suggestions and hope the creators of this app listen to them lol and please add a widget.
Great but could be better 4/5
I have the paid version and I do like it (both paid and unpaid) better than My Fitness Pal. However, there are still some missing features. Please allow better diet customisation (meal frequency, intermittent fasting, net carb tracking on/off toggle, etc) for all five stars. One of the reasons I initially switched from MFP to Lifesum was the HealthKit integration- MFP only logs food but Lifesum logs food and water (as well as exercise, weight, etc). I'm enjoying the app, my daily gripe is that if I eat plenty of veggies it shows a bad day full of carbs, because it's showing total carbs instead of net carbs.
When you first open the app it delights with a beautiful easy to use introduction questionnaire. But that's where the good stuff ends. The app doesn't sync fully with the health kit for some reason and even the syncing it does needs to be manually turned on. Tracking exercises is impossible, searching for weight lifting brings no results. The forces you to categorize your meals into 4 presets. A lot of potential but poor execution. Definitely not worth the ridiculously overpriced subscription!
Have had it less than a week and it crashes every time i try to add a meal. Was excited to try this app and I am not impressed. Back to logging everything in my book, at least I don't have to worry about that crashing.
Really helps with weight loss 5/5
I invested the yearly/ monthly fee in this app expecting it to help me loose weight. Well it did and I am 60 pounds lighter. There was a girl in my college English class that I liked, but I was 287lbs so I had no chance. Three months later I seen her and said hi and stuff, but that's about it. That night she started texting me and now we're going on our first date.
This app really helps and it is pretty accurate on the calories. The barcode scanner really comes in handy, but there's a few items where the labels didn't match up. I would give this app a 5 star rating out of 5.
Thanks Lifesum for all that you have done for me.
So helpful to have suggestions throughout the day and emotive feedback on how I'm doing with each meal.
Definitely helping me start a new slate!
Love it love it love it!! 5/5
I started using Lifesum and it is the best app ever! I use it 24/7 and is super fun while still being efficient.
Hugely disappointing 1/5
No room to customize, not even with the upgrade (based on the description of added features). We prepare a large number of ingredients and dishes from scratch, so logging food in Lifesum is not accurate, as we're restricted to what's in the database. Also, the inability to see what's in the upgrade, specifically diet plans is frustrating. The default plan limits users to breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a snack, all of which are calorie restricted. So for users who consume 5-6 small meals/snacks a day, this isn't helpful. If I log meals as meals, then I'm WAY under my calorie allowance as dictated by Lifesum, and some of my snacks don't get logged. If I log all of my snacks under the single "snack" tab, my meals are way under and my snacks are way over, according to Lifesum. There also isn't a way to log times food is consumed. Lifesum is probably alright for someone interested in very basic nutritional record keeping, but for someone needing to log for medical or serious health/fitness tracking, Lifesum has completely missed the mark. And to charge ridiculous monthly fees for a product that is mediocre at best is just ludicrous. Save your time, money, and frustration and use another method.
Don't recommend 2/5
Clicked the subscription button and now I'm stuck with this app. This app is beautifully designed, but so unhelpful.
I wanted to have easily accessible diet plans, with nice recommendations for my meals. What I've got is 5 recipes in my 'diet plan' and a list of meals on the other. When you search for recipes it doesn't give you recommendations, you either favorite a dish or you manually enter each and every ingredient. Then it tells you your nutritional values are wrong- so off to figure out how to balance it. Honestly if I wanted to work so hard I'd go back to a spreadsheet. Don't waste your money here.
Great App 4/5
I love the app, it helps me track my food intake. I personally do not believe in calorie counting, but logging my food intake helps me keep track of how much food I eat and therefore I am eating less. The app needs some improvement, I don't like the "buy premium" part, but I guess that's normal. I def recommend the app!
I constantly keep gaining my weight. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Good App 5/5
Wish it had an option to choose for fast food restaurants
Simple, informative and beautiful! 5/5
Super simple meal and exercise logging - so helpful in keeping me on track towards achieving my health goals. Integrates with apple's health app too, so your steps get counted automatically! Not to mention, the UI is gorgeous. Very tempted to upgrade to premium for the recipes, considering how solid the rest is! Great work Lifesum👏
Great App, missing HealthKit integration 3/5
App looks great and good design which makes it easy to use. Unfortunately there is no HealthKit integrating which makes it pretty much useless. Pleeeeease add this! Every fitness and health app should have his by now, I have to use MyFitnessPal in the meantime but their UI is a total mess (Oh, and also fix the terribly old Facebook connect WebView you are using where you have to re-login, and just redirect me to the native FB app like everybody else does).
Easy to Use 5/5
I always come back to Lifesum when I start tracking calories again.
By Walk up in the club like
Just wish some features were free.
Love it, love it!! 5/5
I hate calorie counting, this app goes beyond. Is not about just the calories but the quality of food you eat and Lifesum does that.
I learn as I go and the premium version is amazing, helps you design what you need to eat each day based on a program you selected for your objectives, and the recipes are amazing.
I can select what to eat right there in the app which helps me plenty, and I was traveling which is also hard to diet while on the go, and Lifesum help me keep on track
I lost (7pounds) on 2 weeks with the fat burner extreme plan, and I am never hungry, this works awesome for me
It is very helpful 4/5
I love this app and it's helping me stay on track with my diet. I wish I could've access the food recipes without paying though.
Totally worth paying for! 5/5
I upgraded my Lifesum to get the speciality diets - currently doing "Fat-Burner Light" and it's amazing to be able to see where I'm with my macros and it gives great tips and recipes for helping to cut cravings and stay on track.
Great app! 5/5
Love this app. The free version is more than sufficient.
Stick to it, lead to a better diet habit 5/5
Keep record and improve. Will see the difference
Near perfect 4/5
This is my favorite app for tracking calories. It blows My Fitness Pal out of the water in terms of its ability to teach you how to eat right for your fitness goals and how to generally lead a healthy lifestyle. The only flaw is that it has crowd sourced some of its nutrient data from users, which means there is some noticeable human error as you start searching for foods and looking at calorie counts and serving sizes. As long as you are being conscious about your foods and understand the basics when it comes to measurements and serving sizes, you'll avoid improperly tracking your meals. As with anything in life -- it's on you to think critically even when you want an app to take care of the bulk of the work. Trust that Lifesum does a lot for the small fee you pay to unlock those features. It's incredibly well designed. They thought deeply about UX and how to drive reengagement and motivate the user to make good choices. Well done Lifesum!
