“Lose It!”Weight Loss App For Your Smart Phone

So it’s after the holidays, you ate, you drank, you gained, you slugged.  If you need some help to get back on track, look no further than your smart phone and download a free app called “Lose It!”

“Lose it!” is an exercise and diet tracking app that is relatively simple to use.  In order for it to work for you, you will need to figure out how many calories you should be eating each day.  You may need to go to another website to do this.  After looking at several, the website I found most accurate was www.hussmanfitness.org/bmrcalc.htm It will give you a calorie range to stay within.  You will need this information to complete the goals section of “Lose It!” Once you have the numbers, you can get started.

The “Lose It!” app is really easy to use on a smart phone and the nice thing is it will travel with you to work, to restaurants and to the gym. You will be able to keep track of all calories in and all calories out.  When you keep track of it all, you can’t help but lose weight.

I like to use “Lose It!” after holidays and vacations so those 2 or 3 pounds I gain during these times don’t accumulate to 10 to 15 over time.  I have included a Youtube video at the bottom of this post made by an app reviewer to show you how to use “Lose It!” It shows the app on an iphone, but it is almost identical to my Android. Now stop slugging and get busy everybody!

  1. Really good stuff! I think the hardest thing for me and for
    most people is not only trying to find ways to workout and
    lose weight but to also to also make it enjoyable. One of the ways that I am able to keep things fun is to take my dog out and find places to run where I have never been before.
    It breaks up the monotony of running around the block or on a
    track.

    Eating food with no taste isn’t going to help you to lose weight either. If you can find foods that are healthy but still have great taste, eventually your brain is going to think that eating healthy is a good thing because the food tastes great.

    Thanks for taking the time to write all of this. It’s
    very hard to find find good information on health. I know that this
    is going to help a lot of people!
