Reviews

Reviewer: TuDiabetes, a social network of the Diabetes Hands Foundation (DHF)
Review: “I started using this food app called ‘Lose It!’ to measure food. The interface is really handy, and almost makes it fun to track. The little modes of entering data that it uses to track food are very easy to use; it uses the camera to scan bar codes; has little wheels to track serving size, so that if you eat half a doughnut, it’s easy to enter in. The database isn’t totally comprehensive; I’ve found a few things not included. But, perhaps using my experience, I’ve found things that seem close. So far, I’ve found the app very compatible with my lifestyle. When I started using it, just a week or so ago, I noticed that I would eat small snacks more often that I thought, turned my basals down, and ‘presto’, no jelly beans. I still have a few other things, but I’ve been pleased to have a handy way to track food. In some ways, it’s sort of handy to keep it separate from the diabetes gizmos (the pump, CGM, etc). I was sort of spooked this morning to check and find out that, yesterday, I had 137g of carbs on both ‘Lose It!’ and my pump.”

Review: “I use ‘Lose It!’ pretty religiously. You set a goal weight, and all your other stats, and then enter your food intake and exercise. It tells you what your net calorie intake should be, and tracks it for you. Not sure about the other apps out there, but, on this one, you can scan the barcode, and it will automatically enter the nutritional information for you. I lost the winter weight I wanted to lose in no time.”

Review: “Another ‘Lose It!’ user here. I found its database easier to use. And once I set up the custom foods that weren’t in there (which is easy), it was very easy to track what I eat. I like the website of Livestrong ‘MyPlate’ better, and ‘MyPlate’ has nearly every food imaginable (I go there when I can’t find an entry in ‘Lose It!’). But the Livestrong app isn’t as good as ‘Lose It!’. Wish I could combine the two.”
