Doesn’t always transmit to app 3/5
By Shawn Weston
I love this scale works great but it doesn’t always transmit to the app
It works if you're not a lair 5/5
Just being aware of your input and output then seeing results works for my pragmatic mind. Small food choices can lead to big changes.. MGD 64 with a lime, no more IPA's, a cheese burger and fries is 45 mins on the Peloton.
Great weight loss app 5/5
Helpful app for keeping track of Waze, calories, nutrition, etc. Works very well with voiceover.
May have to lose it 1/5
I used to love the app and it has helped me track my calories and lose weight in the past. I haven’t been that active on the app in the past 2 years however I am now on a diet and have started using the app daily again.
As I write this review I have just turned my phone horizontal to type more efficiently. To my surprise and dismay the app does not support the horizontal view. Ironically the weekly report that is emailed to me must be turned horizontal in my email app to read it properly due to the wraparound of text in the vertical position.
The real annoyance is the all the adds and the constant request to upgrade. I would consider paying a one time cost to upgrade however I would never pay a monthly subscription. For a monthly subscription I would expect a much better list of restaurant foods. Since chain restaurants are required by law to provide nutrition information Lose it should have them all in their database. A google search provides me the dietary info I am looking for, and most of the time I find them in another app like live well or map my fitness. Lose seems to have many chain restaurants that are not even in my state of Illinois, and they are the same chains that have always been there. In the past 8 years none of my Chicago restaurants have ever been added an over the past 8 years many of these local chains have become national.
Bottom line I have more adds but not more food data. It does not appear that any of the subscription money is going to enhancing the application. Most likely I will not receive a reply and in that case I will look for a better app. Over the past 8 years I am sure there are better apps out there. Please don’t barrage me with upgrade messages until you upgrade the app with features that will truly improve it.
Great App 5/5
This is the best way for me to set and attain my weight-loss goals!
Works as it should 5/5
By So great it's impossible!
This app is great. If you use it as intended, it provides what you need to manage weight. The food database is huge and when I am diligent enough to log items I always hit my goals.
Keeps me on track 5/5
By Betsy Rheaume
I’ve been using this app for many years. Easy to use and helps me stay under my calorie budget.
It’s fine for food, but not exercise 3/5
I’ve been a longtime user of MFP, but recent app crash issues had me looking elsewhere. I like LoseIt well enough for food tracking. It’s quick and easy, the database is robust, and the barcode scanner works well. It’s a little annoying there isn’t a multiadd feature like MFP, but even without that I prefer this for food tracking.
Exercise tracking is a joke. I use a Garmin with HRM and my calorie burn totals are often dramatically different than the database, with no way to edit it. Today I logged my 79 minute hike as a 45 minute hike to get the calories correct. It knows my weight but it has no idea of my fitness level, and if I’d just plugged in my time I’d be grossly overeating calories. Unless Garmin becomes an option to sync I wouldn’t consider premium.
Easy to use 4/5
Easy and handy app to use. Can also log in to the web based version from a computer (convenient because I cannot take my phone to work.).
Love losing it! 5/5
Down 11-1/2 lbs in 16 weeks of recording every meal and snack. Easy to do with your saved foods and meals. Watching daily nutrients is awesome. I can make choices based on what I need to balance by fats, carbs, and protein. Watching calories turned out to mean when I thought I was "dieting" and eating healthy, it actually turned out to be unhealthy as my calories per day were way too low--well under 1200/day. Now I am eating balanced nutrients and eating a proper amount to lose and not store weight. Worth every second of recording.
Wouldn’t let me use it without asking me to sign in an account. Deleted.
Best App Ever! 5/5
By Lynda in Florida
Lose It is my best friend. I have always had trouble when it came to losing a few pounds because I have never been more than 20 pounds over weight. Those pounds stuck like glue because I could get them off but NEVER keep them off. I was on a “dieting yo-yo.”
This app is keeping me on track. It’s is easy, convenient and working. I have never seen anything like it. I worked for a famous event weight loss program that still advertises on TV. In my opinion, “Lose It” is superior.
Lose it ROCKS 5/5
I did not know how to diet. lose it made it so easy!
I have lost 25 pounds and went from a size 10 to a size 4.
I have not been in this good of shape for 20 years!
This app changed my life! Yay!
Educational and Easy 5/5
Wonderful app that helps you to learn more about ones own personal health — lost 9 pounds in 11 days so far.
It keeps me on track 5/5
By Sue Rett
It keeps me on track knowing I am responsible for the food I am eating and logging it in a journal of sorts
Lose it 5/5
Helps me to track and enjoy weight losd
So great! 5/5
Use this - Lose weight. So simple, effective, easy to use. Truly awesome app.
For the second time in my life (the first being 7 years ago) this app has helped me get my health on track. It's so easy and fun to use! I had always dreaded the idea of counting calories... But this app has changed everything for me. My favorite part is adding in exercise to get some calories back. Yay! 72lbs down and counting!
Great app 5/5
Had this for a year, lots of help, stats, exercise and menu ideas. Lost 20 pounds and counting without any diet, just tracking and realizing when I get close to having "enough". Small steps...
Apple watch app keeps freezing up 3/5
I just opened the app on my watch and it would freeze up while I was scrolling between each part. I had to close it out and open it again, but then it would still do it. Please update this. I love this app!
LOVE IT!! 5/5
Best app I’ve seen for calorie tracking and weight goals👍🏼🙏❤️
Success in the making! 5/5
First app that is actually allowed me to make significant progress towards meeting my goal! Lovin’ it!
Love it his app 5/5
I love the simplicity and use of this app. I have a premium membership that lets me login my food in advance. It’s easy to keep track of my weight, water intake, exercises, and my calories. I’ve met lots of nice people here they give lots of good support, all stuff I need to LoseIt!
Flexible and nicely organized 4/5
By August Cynluna
I like that you can input foods that is not in the listing And I like the look and the layout
Great tool 5/5
My husband and I are both using Lose it! And we love it. We have had a slow steady loss since June and fully expect the app to help us reach our weight loss goals . It’s a great tool. I’ve lost 17 - 3 to go. He’s lost 34, 6 to go.
Very effective!! 5/5
This is a very effective app, as it makes sure you stay accountable for everything. I'm down 13 pounds because of it. Five stars far as I'm concerned.
It REALLY works!!! 5/5
I am pushing 72 and have been listed as 'obese' on my medical files ever since menopause. Picked up an extra 35 lbs that I really didn't need!!! I was always at 125-130 from my college days through two pregnancies/ children plus!!! To boot, I am only 5 foot 'and change'. So that hasn't helped. UNTIL I STARTED USING LOSE IT TO TRACK EVERYTHING I ATE (and wearing my GearFit daily), I had no idea how much I was overeating and how little exercise I wasn't getting to burn off the calories!!! Calories in vs calories out = a slow weight loss!!! Took me a while to see a change downward in the scale, but it's working, TKX to LoseIt and wearing my GearFit!!! The combo is working for me-- nice and slow! Down 13 lbs as of this morning!!! Hooray for me!! Encouraged that I am on the right path to keep the scale's needle going down!!! TY, LoseIt!!! I highly recommend it for all ages!!! AND I love the feature that I can enter my own recipes and find the calorie content of a serving! THAT has REALLY helped!!! Try it, you'll like it!!!
The best app ever!!! 5/5
So I’ve been using this app since right before I became pregnant 7 years ago! Haha! Perfect time to log my food then. My weight has been a roller coaster of a ride after that but I never wavered from using this app. All these years it’s helped me to catch myself and remain consistent! It’s grown with my needs and customer service is spot on. This is my favorite and most used app on here and I love it! Thank you! ❤️❤️❤️
2010 Review... I've been looking for an app just like this!!! I love it!!!! I just took before pics,went running, and made a healthy lunch!! I logged it, and it's soooo simple! The only thing I would like to do is when I add new food( Gardenburger Brand is not listed) I would like to be able to add fat, carbs, and protein. That is it. I'm very excited bout this, and it's FREE! Thank you!!!!
Still using it and still love it! 5/5
This app has been extremely helpful. With regular exercise and watching my calories with this app, I have lost over 50 lbs and have kept it off!
Love it! 4/5
By No longer WW
Lose It! is better, easier and cheaper than WW. I've used it for over a year and lost 30 pounds---slow but steady. I like that it counts calories, not points, giving me food freedom. The analysis of nutrients helps me make changes in my diet on my terms.
Free features 4/5
Persian food data base is not complete and
Free features is not enough
Refund please 3/5
I just learned I have to have a gallbladder surgery- will not be using this app at present time. Please advise.
Great app! 5/5
This measures everything you need to measure. It also ties in very well with the fit bit, never had a problem. This is a great program even if you’re not trying to lose weight just wanna maintain your nutrition goals.
This app is wonderful! 5/5
I am really enjoying this app. I started working out and eating healthy 5 months ago. This app is a great tool to keep me on track. It is fairly easy to learn to use. To date I have lost 44 pounds the old fashioned way - diet and exercise. It is hard work but this app is such a huge help.
Very effective 5/5
I have found Lose It to be just what I needed. It gives me the food awareness and diet accountability of weight watchers but with more convenience.
Lose it helps you lose it 5/5
I love this app. It helps me keep track of the daily calories I take in. It helps me budget calories for the day like budgeting money you have for the day. What do I want to spend it on? What gives me more bang for the buck?
So Easy To Use 5/5
The food database has what seems to be everything! I was surprised to see things like elk tacos. And it’s easy to create your own foods or even meals.
User since 2013 - love “Lose It” 5/5
By Dr ELC
I have used this app online and on my phone since 2013. It has been enormously helpful in managing my weight and exercise habits. Over time it is great to be able to see patterns of eating and exercise and how they have an effect upon my weight. Have lost about 25 lbs and am maintaining within a few lbs of my goal using the free version of “Lose It”.
A life changer 5/5
This app has literally been a life changer for me. Very grateful!
Good app but annoying ads 3/5
Asks you to upgrade to paid version at least once per day which is very annoying. Otherwise a solid app.
In four weeks, I lost 7 pounds. I love this app! Not only does it show you a pie chart for fat/carb/protein intake, it shows you the calorie intake you each meal (just a suggestion). Depending on how many you use per meal (over or under) it will determine how many you have for the rest of the day (ie. dinner). I find this to be extremely successful.
High five great app! 5/5
Have been using the app for 2 weeks. Logging all the food is really simple with using the scanner. After the food had been entered really simple to add too with only a few clicks. I like the reminders helps to keep me tracking. Logging exercises are simple as well.
I used this app several years ago and liked it very much, but in its current form, I can't figure out what to do with it. So it's useless.
Honesty check 5/5
By IE BLUE
Best app to lose and maintain weight. I’ve tried so many others and this is the only one that has worked for me.
If used daily it works and keeps you honest with your calories, activities and goals.
32 lbs down. 5/5
This app helped me learn what foods were giving me all my calories. With that info, and tracking my food every day, I have lost 67 pounds in 142 days. I am happy with LoseIt. I feel so much better. Starting weight was 246. Weight this morning was 179. I haven’t been this weight in 25 years.
This App Works 5/5
By Mad Player 1
Ive lost weight using this app more than once. It’s easy to use and the interface seamless and attractive. The little icons make it easy to find your foods. The nutrition chart makes it easy see your percentage fat, carbs and protein. Well with the annual fee.
From what I’ve seen of similar apps I like Lose It because of the conversions. Tracking calories can be tedious and frustrating and when a nutrition label gives you grams when the easiest way to measure a serving is cups it’s nice that Lose It will automatically pull up the conversion for you.
Excellent app 5/5
Great app that has a huge database of food. Tracking my food, exercise, and weight is a great way to go back and see how to succeed when a plateau or even a gain happens.
By John A. McEwan
I lost 3 pounds per week for 9 consecutive weeks for 27 pounds! It is truly an amazing App! I started WE23MAR11 at 208 pounds and now over 4 years later, I am still 30+ pounds lighter. I also track nutrients and try to maintain my daily saturated fat below 10g, sodium below 1.5g, fiber above 50g, sugar below 100g, and protein at about 70g. Hopefully calcium, potassium, and magnesium tracking will be added as well. The App allows one to copy and then edit previous meals which helps a lot. It just needs to allow one to do the same with exercise since exercise routines, like meals, are often repeated. I give this free App an A rating and promote it on my wpn4life.com site.
My suggestions about calcium, potassium, and magnesium tacking as well as copying prior workout routines continue to be ignored for years. In this respect, those charged with maintaining this App are lacking and therefore not meritorious of an "A plus" rating.
Premium version even better 5/5
By Wendel C
Lose It! Has helped me become more cognizant of what I consume and incentivizes me to exercise more. From the nutritional breakdown of your foods to the friendly (yet not overbearing) notifications it's very helpful to those who are trying to change their lifestyle. It's not just for weight loss, though. With premium you are able to add nutrition goals (like high protein if you're trying to build, etc). Also, it's visually pleasing and makes it easier to digest the info.
