Regret purchasing 2/5
Does not distinguish between added vs natural sugar. No one should feel guilty about eating an apple!
Great app, but careful with calories vs macros 4/5
By Das Dicke Ende Kommt Noch
Best app for tracking nutrition. The free version is pretty robust. My only issue is that the calories are often understated to the macros, i.e. Protein, Carbohydrates, and Fat don’t reconcile with calories counted. Either one or the other is off - it seems the calories are understated (often significantly). It screwed up my diet awhile until I caught it. Focus on the macros. The fat comes off - strength and weight balance. Again, great app - understand its limitations. Paid version only if you are unfamiliar with principles of nutrition supporting your strength or conditioning program.
Better than others 4/5
By Harry Testes
I’ve sampled many of the calorie counting apps out there, and while not perfect Lose it is the best I have used. The reason is the ability to change measurements. This separates the app from others, and allows you to be more accurate. Also, the Lose it database associated with the scanner is by far the biggest and best. None of the other apps come close. The one complaint is the same for all the apps. Wildly different calories counts for foods. This is because they let stupid people just make food entries. Any user can just make up a food count and put it out there. Many of them are not based on any kind of reality. The verified feature makes this better, but using that feature isn’t possible for all foods. Also sometimes I just don’t want to enter an entire recipe and would prefer to just find something I think is close. None of these are verified.
could be dangerous 4/5
keep in mind, i don't have the premium version.
but i have dealt with underrating before and the app almost makes staying lower than your calories a 'congrats'. my lifestyle has me in a calorie deficit of about 1300-400 because of my small size as well, but there were days where i underate as low as 750 calories. the app just told me 'congrats! you made today look easy!'
Great tracking app! 4/5
By music lover22
Lose it! is a great tracking app. I love that you can put notes in your daily log so you can track anything else you want and it’s visible at a glance. The database of foods is quite extensive. This has definitely improved over the years with so many more people using it.
A feature that I would love to see is the ability to eliminate calorie counting completely. I track my macros but can sometimes get triggered by the calorie budget, even though for the sake of my mental health I’m not supposed to care about calories. It would be cool if there was an ED recovery mode.
It would be sweet if the team could utilize some AI tech to measure our food for us. Like if I’m adding lettuce I want to use the camera to figure out how many ounces it is. Because after years of using this I’m pretty solid at it but I know this used to frustrate me a lot and I’m sure new users feel my pain.
Great app, you won’t regret downloading it!
Has serious problems/bugs! NO WAY TO REPORT BUGS GET HELP!!! 1/5
I’m a software engineer with 40+ yrs experience (decades developing mobile apps, which is why I’m ASTONISHED you do not have any way to report software defects/malfunctions/BUGS!!!
Your FAQs dont address how either!!! Why?
How does a user get help?
Your help/documentation is really sorely lacking too...
Please contact me I have serious bugs to report but no way to do so!
Newest version 3/5
By Jen Devoe
doesn’t sync calorie intake to my Fitbit app.
My vote for The best App ever! 5/5
By I like to remember!
I reached my weight loss goal of 25 lbs. Seemed like an unrealistic impossible task. I could not have done it without this app. I am forever grateful. I recommend it to everyone who mentions my weight loss (just about everyone). Amazed myself that I was even able to do it thru the COVID-19 stay at home time. Hubby joined me and he also lost 22 lbs. I thought the feature of scanning UPC code was excellent! I am now shooting for another 5 lbs...back to my college weight...I am 63 yrs old! Ha! Love this app!
Can’t synch with Fitbit Now 3/5
Not sure if it is a Fitbit or Lose It issue, but as of yesterday, Fitbit won’t update even with multiple manual pushes from Lose It. This is a paid feature ...
Really useful but busy” 3/5
The calorie and nutrition tracking is really helpful to me. The scanner makes it really easy to keep to a healthy diet. The best parts of the app are free. Might be worth paying for if you have a watch or band that integrates well (I don’t, so I haven’t tried).
An App Built With The Customer In Mind 5/5
By Aman Vyas
Honestly, this app is so easy to use and has all the features you want in an app to help you track your calories. The best part is I get an option to add in a previous meal with the click of a single button, saves so much time. The base app is great for basic functions, and you can go premium to unlock more information about the foods you’re consuming. At no point does the app self promote premium with annoying ads, instead it leaves those premium features locked. This lets you know what premium includes in case you choose to purchase it. Pair this app with a Fitbit or any wristwatch, and you have all the information you could ask for regarding your diet and health. Simple and effective marketing.
It works for me 5/5
By Yorick 829
It just works for me— the way making a list works for me. If I write down a list I end up doing EVERYTHING on the list. Not necessarily the same day or even the same week, but I get it all done.
If I go off of Lose It! I lose it in a different way, I start snacking more, I eat more bread and pasta, I drink more Scotch——- and guess what? I start gaining weight again.
Lose it! allows me to not wallow in self pity by eating or drinking or “rewarding” myself. It just makes it SO easy to keep track of what I’m putting in my mouth and swallowing.
And it helps with the budget too!!
I’m going to use LoseIt! for the rest of my life.

Don’t like changes. 3/5
I liked having a set goal date. That is gone now...
Love it 5/5
I just started and am enjoying it so far. It’s helping keep me on track.
Great help 5/5

Pros and cons 3/5
By Mama Williams Woo
Adding basic foods or scanning foods is simple. Adding and specifically editing recipes is not and since I cook a great deal this is frustrating.
Good App and Strategy 5/5
- Eat whatever you want! You want ice cream for breakfast? Go for it. You just eat a little less the rest of the day.
- Half the time just having to record the food is enough to make it not worth it.
- Educates you about high vs. low calorie foods (not always what you thought they were)
-Calories intake is the ONLY thing that affects weight loss/gain
- lots of features, but you don’t have to use them all to make it work
- remembers and suggests food that you eat, ie. “your dinner foods.”
- Has “verified” foods, so you know accuracy
- You can add foods and the nutrition facts yourself
- Good graph that shows weight loss progress
- Can connect to a pedometer to track steps
- Premium can track macros
Path for the success 5/5
Very good tool. Track everything you need!
Can’t Disable Goals 1/5
I just want to track nutrition. I don’t need the goals and would rather not have recommended calorie counts or a majority of the features this app provides. I will gladly pay for a food log, but I want to disable and hide everything else in this app.
Okay for free 2/5
A bit klugey but okay for free
Best App to Lose and Maintain Weight 5/5
I’ve been using this app for years! Love it. Every once in awhile, I’ll switch to a new or different app just to make sure I’m not missing anything and I always come back to Lose It! This app is simple and makes it really easy to track your food intake and exercise and track against your weight goals. The more you use it, the easier it becomes to log your foods, as you can pull from previous meals and foods once you’ve logged them. I use the paid version so I can plan for my meals ahead of time and ensure I am staying within calorie limits. I have lost lots of weight with this app and also use it to maintain my weight. If you use this app diligently and stick to the goals, log your foods, you will lose weight. Period.
Easy To Use, Great Accountability App 5/5
This app is so easy to use. Losing weight is about lowering your calorie intake. This app helps you do it with a goal weight and how many lbs you want to lose on a per week basis. It tracks the calories from foods from restaurant's, supermarket brands and deducts from your exercise from the day. All you have to do on the foods is search and there it is. Also, good for adding your own recipes. It’s a must add for helping you to lose weight! I’ve only used the free version. Buying up has to be just as good if not better!
Too many options cost money. Also it takes too long to log foods.
Not sure why but this is motivates differently 5/5
I have used my share of tracking apps but for some reason this is the one that I have success with. I stay motivated with Lose It and actually use it. It a winner.
Cherry T 2/5
By Cherry Tull
I paid for this app and got a new job then out for several days and I have lost the opportunity to log in! I paid for a year!
Works fine usually, but it won’t let me in after the update.
Great Motivator but 3/5
Tracking calories allows you to know exactly where you are daily and holds the user accountable. Only small issue is the constant pop up to upgrade to paid services.
This App is changing my life 5/5
Thank you developers!!!! Truly life-changing....every design element and function seems thought-out and planned for one purpose: to keep me committed and engaged! It's working!!!
OMG I love it 5/5
Going to try to keep this short but I really appreciate this app. It makes me SO happy that I finally found something that WORKKKKKS omg. I’m so happy I found it thanks!!!
Recent update broke the app...good job! 1/5
Last update causes the app to crash and tells you that it’s not shared anymore and to use it purchase from the App Store. Been using it for months until recently
Must have app if you want to lose weight 5/5
By Spanish Harlem Dive
I absolutely love this app. I have the annual membership and I love the results.I already lost 47 pound in 8 months with just regular diet, walking 3-4 miles daily and staying away from carbs.
The best I have ever used! 5/5
I have used them all. I used My fitness pal for a while. This one is the best! After you log for a few weeks It finds trends with certain foods and helps you discover which foods and behaviors help you stay on track or don’t. I also record my blood sugar every few days on it and the graphs are very helpful. It also gives you encouragement when you lose weight and it’s super easy to record food. Just try it for a week! I have already lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks, I had been in a stall for a year before this.
Responsive to requested display problem 5/5
Display problem required an engineer to fix. Solution was fast and clever
Weird Update 3/5
I used this app every day for a while until I can’t access it anymore. Says I have to buy it? Even tho I already have a membership? Well, either way for those that can still use it it’s a great app to track. For those of us who can’t, it’s pretty useless because we can’t track anymore.
Fun and effective! 5/5
Can’t say enough about this app. After inputting app, weight, and goal, the app gives you a calorie count, and a date you will achieve your goal. You get bonus calories for exercising ... in my case walking or riding a bike. I logged religiously every day, both weight and everything I ate. My Apple Watch tracked my exercise so that is super easy. I lost my 15 lbs one day before my ETA. When you go into ‘maintenance’ mode, my daily calorie count went up. As a bonus, they send fun texts when you reach milestones.... ‘you just lost the weight of a French bulldog puppy!’ It is fun, easy and best of all, it works!
Too many 3/5
The app is great but way to many “upgrade” this to get more info and it ain’t cheap.
Lose it app 5/5
I downloaded this app 3 months ago but only used it on occasion. Last week, I decided to get real and I input EVERYTHING. I lost 2lbs! So happy.
Bad update 1/5
My app updated today and now it won't let me in it says that I need to purchase it. I've had this app for more than 5 years.

By joi 9jou9
This is the he best thing that I have been involved in to lose weight. Enjoying eating right and staying satisfied until the next meal. Thank for allowing me to utilize the app without a fee. Once again I thank you.
Log it. 4/5
I’ve been using this app to log my meals for the past several years. The one thing that’s always bugged me, are the arrows at the top (to toggle between days). If you tap even slightly off-center on them, nothing happens. It’s minor, but annoying.
Aside from that, this app is awesome.
Great app! Wish you could try the premium 4/5
We really enjoy the app even though there are some items that scan incorrectly.
We would love to try the premium but want to try it before we commit. You should have an option!!
I love this app. Great help. I’m down 40 lbs.

Great app for maintaining your Calorie count per day and exercise calories burned every day. Easy to use .
Great app 5/5
It’s definitely a great app. It has me in the mindset of only eating a certain amount or under of calories a day. Thanks to this mindset, I’ve lost almost 5 lbs within my first week!!
By ā do has Gn guy in cc'd by
This app is amazing I have never realized how much I actually eat in a day so tracking it helps a lot. It is also super easy to track what you eat they have just about any food, drink, and snack you could eat. They even have food from different restaurants.
This is the single most useful tool that I have ever used
Great app! 5/5
It’s a great app to use for counting calories and keeping track of weight lost. I wish more options were free but you have to pay to use a lot of the functions on this app.
