Review: LoseIt App

Hi, friends!

Since I’ve basically always been trying to lose weight (no, really… like, my entire life. I know there are probably some of you out there who know these feels.) I’ve gone through my fair share of methods of tracking my nutritional intake. While I really enjoy the meticulous nature of hand-writing my intake in a crisp, clean notebook, it just isn’t realistic from a time perspective.Β Enter the wide world web and the 89millionbajillion ways you can track your intake/exercise. When I first started actively trying to lose weight, Sparkpeople was my jam. Since then, I’ve gone through various other websites/apps: MFP, Fitbit, FatSecret… the list goes on. Only in February of this year did I finally find the one for me: LoseIt.

Rating (free version): 4/5

I started out using just the free version of LoseIt, but within a week moved to the paid version. The free version is a great, simple way to log calories and compare and contrast calorie goals, total weight loss, etc. It’s standard. For keto, though, it’s not ideal. You don’t get access to macro goals unless you have the paid version, and we all know just how important those goals are for our lifestyle.

LoseIt Premium

LoseIt Premium is fantastic. As mentioned above, you get access to “nutrition goals” for all sorts of things… our primary macros (fat, carbs, protein, fiber), weight loss, body measurements, etc. You name it. There are also myriads of ways to look at that data–macro graphs, daily graphs, food graphs… oh, it’s just so glorious.

There are also “patterns”, which are derived from all of that data (all of this data is available under “insights” in LoseIt) that help you to identify what may or may not be leading to increased chances of successful goals. LoseIt Premium also comes with a recently released feature, The How, which is a well-written, well-researched blog (not necessarily keto, just FYI) with tips and tricks for nutrition, fitness, mental clarity, etc. LoseIt Premium also has all of the benefits of the other apps of similar nature–friends, badges, recipe creation, sharing foods, etc. It also pairs with common apps like Fitbit to give you a “calorie bonus” should you choose to use, and to help calculate total calorie expenditure for the week. What more could you want?

At a price point of $39.99, it’s less than $3.50 a month to get access to a great app (and support a small business that definitely has it’s heart in the right place). To learn more about LoseIt Premium, visit their website.

  1. I love this review and am totally intrigued. I am currently using MFP and curious if you used it in the past? I’m assuming if so you would totally choose LoseIt after reading your review. πŸ˜‰ I’m finally getting the hang of MFP…I’m not overly impressed with it, but it gets the job done. I’m going to download the free app and see how the functionality compares. Love the review!

    • Thanks, dear! Yes, I used MFP religiously before Under Armour bought it. Then a lot of what I loved about it seemed to change, and I jumped ship. I tried a few other things before I found LoseIt (via a Reddit recommendation, of course) and fell head over heels 😊
