The battle of the stomach bulge is one of the hardest fights to conquer. The good news is there may be a revolutionary new way to win the war against obesity.
Lose It! is a new app designed to make our dieting lives easier where losing weight can be as simple as snapping a photo. The user simply takes a photo of their food, uploads it to Lose It! – which has a database of restaurant, grocery store, and brand-name foods. Image recognition technology, Snap It, will analyze the foods it sees in the photo telling you the calorie count and nutritional information on your smartphone, computer, or tablet.
You’re already taking a photo of that delicious meal you’re about to consume for Instagram. With the Lose It! app there’s no second guessing as it will automatically identify the foods in the image to offer estimated calorie counts. Think of it as Shazam for food.
Lose It! also helps you make smart decisions when you’re shopping at the grocery store. Just snap a picture of the bar code scanner and the app grabs nutritional information such as calories per serving size, and more.
According to Lose It! keeping a food diary and the idea of logging in meals can be a burden, and a big reason why people quit their plans. They’ve solved that problem as their current Android and iOS app lets you manually log what you have consumed for the day.
Of course any diet requires exercise, motivation and a personal will which unfortunately their app doesn’t provide. That has to come from you. Lose It! does however supplement those needs with daily blogs giving you healthy recipes, fitness and success tips, and a nutrition plan such as tasty meals under 400 calories. (Of course it’s a salad!)
Dieting is never fun alone. With LoseIt! you can virtually share your meals with friends and access your support network 24/7 with a swipe on their social features. There are many success stories. Their website has an inspiring ongoing counter – measuring more than 50 million pounds lost and counting.
This appears to be a revolutionary concept for many people who go on crazy fad diets, take pills, or virtually starve themselves in the hopes of shedding excess weight. Giving you the tools to achieve your weight loss goal in the palm of your hand could be a convenient start.
