Lose It!, at first glance, feels like another weight tracker, but as you dig into the app, you'll find dozens of new features and options that really empower you to take control of your diet. From its setup, which seamlessly walks you through setting goals and calorie limits, to the barcode scanners and exercise tracker, Lose It! is a fantastic app to help you stay on target with your lifestyle changes.
When you start Lose It! for the first time you'll be tasked with entering your personal data -- weight, height, and number of weeks you want to spend losing weight. By setting a weekly goal between 1/4 and two pounds you can see exactly how long the app projects it will take to lose that weight. You are then given a calorie limit and the app will count down every time you add food to it, showing exactly how many calories you have left to stay within your limit for the day. Tools like a barcode scanner and database of foods make this even easier so you can avoid looking up calories or getting lazy and forgetting.
Lose It! offers a combination of almost every tool you could need to manage and track your weight loss efforts on a daily basis. From weight tracking to food and exercise logging, goal reminders and more, Lose It! is a must have for anyone currently struggling to keep track of their efforts.
Our iOS developer wrote us a novel for these notes. To our dismay, it didn't contain any elements of magic or dragons. So we decided to weave those in for you (but unlike some series, we do have a limited set of characters).
Here are our fave updates!
*On days you might go overbudget, we'll stop telling you your goal date is in 2045. Please use alternative transportation to get to the future.
*Ever encounter that pesky back arrow that seemed to stop working at midnightkwscnmrk We reversed its spell, and it works now!
*Serving size options now go up to 2000, just in case you're trying to create a 2000mL butterbeer recipe or log more than 500g of "every flavor" jelly beans.
We've fixed more bugs, prettied up the UI in places, and cleaned up the app's act. So stop 'dragon' your feet and get to tracking!
