Reviews


So far, reviews for Lose It
have been good. Users like the wide variety of food and calorie information available, as well as the exercises that are recommended. Some reviewers claim that they lost a lot of weight within months. Other reviewers, however, did not like the limited exercises, and thought that the food and calorie list could still be expanded.

Social


Lose It has its own blog which provides news on app updates. LoseIt is also on Twitter where it has over 9000 followers. It also has over 74,000 likes on its official Facebook page.


How It Works


Lose It first allows you to set a goal by letting you
set your goal weight. It also asks about your daily budget. Lose It integrates the goal, daily budget, and your personal profile. It will then provide you with goals and tips around your sleep, exercise levels, body measurements, and the nutrients that you consume in your diet. The app will also track your progress for each goal, and allow you to compare how you and your friends are meeting your objectives. Lose It can also help you count calories, and can integrate with wireless weighing scales and other fitness devices.

By setting a tangible goal (an amount of lost weight) and setting it against a context of other goals that should follow (specific body measurements, exercises to get to the lost weight, the right diet to get nutrients that will help you lose weight and keep it off), Lose It encourages users to meet their objectives.

Standard


Standard copies of LoseIt will allow users to set their fitness goals and budget. The app actually has a new look for 2013, and has simpler ways to log exercise and food. As with the old Lose It, the app still allows Standard users to track their progress. The new Lose It has a way to view your day's work, and then compare your progress daily as well as weekly.

Premium


Standard users can
upgrade to Premium Lose It for a fee. Premium users can plan their meals in advance, and then use their food and exercise data to see how the planned food can affect their ability to lose weight in a certain amount of time. Users can also confirm that they kept to their planned meal.

The Premium version of Lose It has more goals, can be integrated with even more devices, and enables competition amongst groups and teams. The Premium version also has private challenges to make weight loss more competitive.

Company


Lose It is made by
FitNow, Inc., which is based in Boston, MA, USA. FitNow was founded in 2008. Lose It was first made available for iPhone, and quickly gained popularity amongst iPhone users. It was made available for Android phones in 2011.

Price


Lose It can be downloaded for free on the Android store and iTunes store. Users can
upgrade from Standard to Premium for a fee of $15-30 a year, depending on how long they have been using the Standard program. The upgrade can be carried out within the app itself.
