What system are you looking for?
You'd be SOL for Windows though. :(
I use lose it. You can plan your meals in advance and it has a ton of food data. You can just scan a barcode on the food's package and it adds it to your log.
For anyone like me who's a big guy (was 310 as of march 21st, now 284) and wants to get on the weight loss train, check out my fitness pal or Lose it for mobile devices. Track your calories. It's amazing how much just this little bit will help you see just how much you're putting in. It's also pretty fun.
Even if you continue to eat shit food, eating less of it will help you start, and as you see progress, trust me, it's hard not to want to keep going. I have been putting off buying a new belt for the last few weeks because I'm on my last notch and my pants are loose. Shit that hasn't fit me since literally middle school now all of a sudden is fitting. It's insane, and feels amazing, even just 20 pounds less. Trust me, just start, and you'll keep going if you can make it a week.
Question. tl;dr for cooking the same meal twice, reuse calorie counts or re-weigh?
I just started calorie counting about 2 weeks ago. I normally either eat at some local restaurants or I cook chili or vegetable beef soup that lasts for like 2 weeks.
I already have a recipe made for the beef soup in LoseIt from the last time I made it. And I plan on making it again in a couple weeks
When you cook the same meal twice, do you reuse the same recipe / calorie counts?
(I usually eat the same thing at a restaurant, so when I go somewhere I haven't calorie counted before, I get it to go, and weight the individual parts at home. Then I save that as a recipe)
((Freaking ~~Gryos~~ Gyros and Greek Fries have like 1300 calories, but they're soooooo good))
Somewhat new to this sub and saw this today and thought I might contribute.
M/17/5'9"-10"/172lbs. Been training seriously for about a month now (seems like a lot longer tho) with no serious goals in mind other than loosing a little weight. I started keeping track of my calories with this app. I put in my weight goal, 165lbs, and how fast I wanted to loose the weight, about 2 lbs per week, and it set up a daily calorie allowance of about 1500-1600 per day. I have dropped really fast from 185lbs to about 172lbs, but have noticed somewhat of a plateau in the last few days.
As for exercise, I lift 6 day a week, and do cardio 3 days a week. I recently added core on my non-cardio days. I don't really know my maxes but I dead lifted 225*4 the other day, and did one rep of 160lbs on bench yesterday. I feel like I'm not really putting on muscle that much (maybe its just slow) and have considered that it is because my calorie count is somewhat low, but I am somewhat insecure about my stomach and don't really want to put back on what I lost in fat. I have read a lot on here about bulking and cutting and have started to think that a bulk in these winter months might be beneficial to my muscle growth.
Any advice would be more than welcome.
I use Lose It! and I like how it works on mobile and as a webapp. I think it's on iTunes too.
I've heard good things about Zombies, Run! but I haven't tried it myself.
I've found Lose It to be the best; you can tell it what you're eating and doing, and it'll (mostly) take care of the numbers. In cases where it doesn't know the numbers, you can usually just scan barcodes and it will fill stuff in (unless its some really weird product that literally nobody has come across yet, in which case you can also manually put stuff in using the nutrition panel on the item).
~~Link me: LoseIt~~
Sorry bot, my bad -- it's Lose It, not LoseIt.
~~Link me: Lose It~~
Eh toss it; it likely won't link from an edit, since it isn't a new post/comment.
It also says "in-app purchases between 5.50€ and 185€".
I had connected it to Google Fit and i track my food intake with Lose It!
But you can view it directly in Zepp when you click on the Calories widget. It expands to hour-by-hour graph that you can focus to show how much calories where burned for the hour.
Ei valkoinen riisikään mitään myrkkyä ole, verrattuna vaikka johonkin vehnäleipään. Suhteellisen tyhjiä hiilareita vaan, ei kovin ihmeellisesti täytä eikä sisällä ravinteita. Treenatessa (varsinkin kestävyyskunto) hiilarit ovat hyväksi, itse vain mieluummin otin ne hedelmistä, leivästä, kaurapuurosta.
Appi oli oikeasti Lose It! ja maksoin siihen premiumin, jonka sisällöstä en muista. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fitnow.loseit
Lose It is good for tracking weight, monitoring calories in/out and fitness tracking. I think body fat monitoring is a premium feature but not sure.
Ah, it’s called something else on Android I think: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fitnow.loseit&
Understandable - my wife has a high heart rate too and she hates running. She’s gotten into cycling and did elliptical for a while too as her cardio but she also really enjoys Zumba (just some options). This was all pre-pandemic of course, so depending on your comfort level/access to a gym, I know you may be limited to at home workouts, as we are.
Keep it up!
I used Lose It for a while. Documents calories, protein/carb/fat, etc. Has a handy barcode scanning feature that automatically logs packaged food, and it includes nutritional info from restaurant chains.
I have used MFP in the past and I have recently reinstalled it, but I'm going to give the loseit app a try, as you've suggested. Just to be sure I have the right app, this
I don't know if you're interested, so sorry if you're not. But I found a great app called lose it (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fitnow.loseit) it lets you add your own food, and it's pretty good for fast foods and just everyday products.
I use Loose It as my calorie counter and Google Fit as my workout tracker. The important bit is that GoogleFit will automatically add my workouts to LooseIt so my calories get adjusted for the day.
As for the hunger... there is a quirk with swimming that triggers an elevated hunger response for about an hour after. If you can commit to fasting for an hour after getting out of the water you'll find you do better.
If you can't, try running or spinning. Both will mute your hunger in ways that swimming can't.
LoseIt! on iPhone has a calorie guesser where you take a pic then it posts a list of probables. It is OK to meh for dishes but is an AI work-in-progress
Lose It! – Calorie Counter by FitNow https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lose-it-calorie-counter/id297368629?mt=8
If you are looking for a calorie counter, you might find this one useful:
It has lots of already registered products, so you can insert records pretty fast. I began to use it 2 weeks ago and i find it very useful.
Lose It! app on Android. Worth the subscription, but works OK free too. Syncs with Google Fit for weight and exercise tracking. Good food database and you can create custom foods and recipes easy.
You might be on Keto, but if you're not counting cals then it doesn't matter
Use the app Lose it
Or any other calorie tracking app (myfitnesspal)
and your weight will no longer stall.
Not sure if this is what you need but I've been using Lose it for a while and its been great, there is a barcode scanner but am not sure how accurate it is.
Cuthbert's tips to getting less of you:
There are no shortcuts. You'll see YouTube videos to "Get ripped in 30 days!" or "Lose 10 lbs in one week!" The only way to lose that much weight in that little time is to blow your legs off with a landmine, and it'll be healthier to do that than to take whatever supplement they're selling. I promise you this will be rewarding, I also promise you it'll be hard, slow and you'll wake up many mornings and question whether it would be alright to skip the gym just this one morning. The answer is no, get your fat ass out of bed and man up, it's not even leg day.
People at the gym are looking at you. And there's one of two thoughts going through their head. Option one:
> Holy cow, that fat-ass is going hard. He's going to lose that weight, that's impressive.
This person looking at you will have a blank expression on their face because they'll have just finished a set and be exhausted. They are impressed by your effort, but to be honest they don't matter because you're doing a set and if you're not, you should be so quit thinking about them and get back to lifting. Option two:
> LOL, look at that fat-ass sweat, it's so hard for him to do what I can do! What a loser.
This person looking at you will have a blank expression on their face because they'll have just finished a set and be exhausted. They are intimidated by your effort, but to be honest they don't matter because you're doing a set and if you're not, you should be so quit thinking about them and get back to lifting.
Either way, you're impressing or intimidating someone, which means you're doing good, don't pay attention to it and do another set!
Lose-it. /r/loseit. | Web-app. | Play Store App. | iPhone app. There, you now have no excuses. Log food BEFORE you eat it, so you can stop yourself after having one serving. Buy the pro version if you want, but I didn't until after I'd lost 30 lbs and wanted to thank these guys. If you're hungry, drink a full glass of water. If you're still hungry, eat an apple, carrot, celery stalk, or some pepper. If you're still hungry and can't wait for dinner, pull out your phone and look at your homescreen.
Stop buying junk food. If you have it, you're going to eat it. Focus on stuff that takes a lot of effort to prepare. You're going to be lazy, you're a human being and that's what we are, we find the easy way out, but we can also outsmart that part of our brain. If it's going to take you 10 minutes to cook an omelette vs 10 seconds to tear open a bag of chips, not only is the omelette healthier but it's probably not going to get eaten until later, and being brutally honest, the later you eat the less food you'll eat that day and the less you eat the faster you lose weight. NOW, I cannot stress this enough, do not go over-board! If you're really worried about balancing calories, don't know where to start, or what goals to set, or feel weird a day or two into your diet, talk to your doctor. They'll be more than happy to give you a target calorie intake range, as well as teaching you about nutrients and all that jazz. PLEASE don't try and eat a stupidly low amount of calories per day, you'll end up hurting yourself, damaging the body you're trying to rescue and on top of that, you'll discourage yourself from dieting even more. You'll have to discipline yourself a little bit, don't go stuffing your face every time you stop feeling full, but man, this is dangerous.
Set goals. Yeah, you've probably heard this one before, but it's a double-edged sword that benefits you on both sides. First, it gives you a target to strive for, not just an ambiguous "do good", but a rock-solid "Lose (X) lbs in (Y) weeks." which you can adjust performance to meet. Second, once you meet that target, you get a boost of willpower, because you've come this far, so you know you can do it from here on out. Don't be unreasonable with goals, if you set them too high you'll be upset that you never reach them and they lose their traction. Don't set them too low, or you won't feel challenged by them and they'll lose their meaning. That's why I put them here, 3rd on the list, because you want to feel out how your body reacts and where you're at currently. I set a goal to lose 20 lbs, then start biking, I didn't hit the workout and the diet at the same time. I can't help you out here, this one's on you pal.
Find your drive, simply (though not necessarily correctly) described as the carrot or the stick. For me, it was /r/fatpeoplehate. I go to the gym to kill weakness. My alarm clock is titled "Get to the gym, fat-ass!" because my ass is fat and lazy, and I need to fix it. I keep a shirtless picture of myself on my phone's homescreen because every time I pulled it out, I reminded myself that I was disappointed with my body and need to stop eating so I would be happy with it. I don't quit because I know I can do better. This works for me, I fueled myself with fury. If this works for you, do it. If not, don't even try, you'll end up hating yourself even more. Visit /r/getmotivated. Title your alarm "Go get-em, killer" because you're an unstoppable killing machine and there is no force on this planet that can get between you and your goals. Keep a shirtless picture of yourself on your homescreen so every time you pull your phone out, you remember what you're fighting for and how far you've come, and that you won't quit because you're worth it.
Don't stop. If you feel demotivated, you're doing it right. Obesity is an addiction and you're going to go through detox, meaning withdrawal, meaning it's gonna suck. I'm not gonna sugar-coat it ^(cause you'd probably eat it) but a week in your alarm clock is going to ring, you're going to try and sit up but yesterday you did a lot of those and your core muscles are going to say, "Go to hell." Don't take shit from them, you're in charge, they exist to serve you so cry if you want, but whatever you do don't give up. If you feel extra down, PM me.
I quite like Loseit (fitting, I know. No idea if they're related). I much prefer it over My Fitness Pal.
You can take a picture of food and see how many calories are in it. You know that's just an app anyone can install, right? ��
LoseIt is pretty great, it has a FAB as well.

No comiendo mucho.
Gracias por venir a mi Ted Talk.
Ya en serio, pesaba 100kg, y actualmente 92kg, son sólo 8 kilos, nada, lo sé, pero creo que voy por el camino correcto.
Creo que te interesaría conocer r/CICO, en el subreddit hay mucha más información, pero basicamente es consumir menos calorías de las que gastas para generar un déficit calórico y por lo tanto, bajar de peso.
El ejercicio es bueno y si puedes, deberías practicarlo, ayuda, pero ya te digo que puedes bajar todo el peso que tengas de más in hacer nada de ejercicio. En cuanto a pérdida de peso refiere es 10% ejercicio, 90% lo que comes.
Te recomiendo la app Lose it! para contar tus calorías consumidas, ahí mismo te hacen una serie de preguntas sobre tu actividad física (Si eres full sedentario, tienes actividad ligera como ir a trabajar, o haces ejercicios), cuánto pesas, cuánto mides, edad, altura, si eres hombre o mujer, etc.
Al final, basado en una ecuación matemática te un plan de déficit, supongamos que para mantener tu peso actual debes consumir 2500 calorías, diarias, entonces, lose it! te da un plan de 2000 calorías, por ejemplo. Y al consumir sólo esas calorías diarias, irás perdiendo peso progresivamente.
Algunos tips que te puedo dar que he aprendido sobre la marcha y te pueden ayudar:
Mucha suerte op, cualquier duda, mándame DM y trataré de ayudarte.
Loseit seems to be being touted as a replacement by most folks

Myth busting: The old common way to lose weight by just eat less food per meal is scientifically wrong. Why? Because of metabolic adaptation. If you eat less at each meal, you left the table still hungry and feel like hell. But worse, over time that feeling of hunger will become more and more intense until you snap and give up.
Another myth, breakfast is the most improtant meal of the day, no. Digesting food take a long time (six to eight hours). What time you eat your food doesn't really matter that much, just don't eat right before bed and get a stomach ache. If you're thinking "but I feel better after eating breakfast", continute reading we will get to it.
(?) Diet is just calories in calories out right? Not that simple. Human eat food not just for calories, there're also vitamins and minerals. They effect body function, your beauty, and state of mind. There's even a subreddit dedicated to enhance brain function with supplements.
(?) How much should you weight to look and feel the best? Calculate your IBM. See where you are right now, then work your way into the "normal weight catagory", which is pretty wide (18.5–24.9). You don't need to be in perfect central, that's unrealistic and would just stress you out. Though aiming for optimal IBM is a good motivation.
a. What to eat?
The easy way, just eat wide variety of food. Meat, fish, vegetable, fruit. You don't need to give up on the food that you like, just eat less of them. Introduce new healthy food into your daily life one at a time.
Health and fitness sites would have million of articles telling you must eat this food eat that food. Just remember that if you eat wide variety of foods, you will most likely get every vitamins and minerals your body need.
-Fruit: The easiest healthy food to start is fruit, banana. Eat one banana a day, then two banana. Don't like banana? Try diffirent breed of banana, or any other fruit you like. Slowly eat all kind of fruit daily, pineapple, payaya, etc. Search for each fruit nutrition content. For example half a medium payaya give you 100% daily vitamin A need. One pineapple give you 721% vitamin C so cut them up into a bowl and eat one slide each day.
-Vegetable: What to do if you hate vegetable? Vegetables don't mean steammed bland brocolli. Eat stir fry chinese vegetable dishs, there're meat and fat in them so it's way tastier than steamed veggies. Or roasted/grilled veggies with dipping source.
I did it the hard way though, just chomp down a ball of green veggies at the end of my meal and wash them down with water. Do you know the theory that your gut bacterias kind of decide what food you like? I used to hate veggies with all my mind, but now I can eat some types without feeling disgusted, and some even kind of tasty now, weird.
-Meat: Try to eat less meat, human need meat, but not as much as you would think. Also don't eat just one type of meat like white chicken breast. Eat turkey, lamb, beef, pork. If you find it expensive, eat less, get the taste not the quantity.
-Fast food: Ever wonder why you can eat a shit load of fast food and still want more. Because they're designed that way. I don't even want to break down why because this guide is long enough already. I'm not fear mongering you, I like fast food too. Just try to eat less of them. See them at luxury treat that you can only get in the weeken.
-Snack: Eat snack if you want. Try to eat them near the time of your meal. Don't just eat purly starch snack like dorritos and potato chip. Try nuts and seeds, they're so nutritious and filling they're like reverse dorritos.
-Drink: Drink enough water = optimal health. Get a big bottle or jug of water and put it right beside you, in your field of vision.
How to know if you're drink enough: Piss really yellow, not enough water. Piss clear white, too much water. Piss slightly yellow, good.
Try to drink less sugary energy drink, one can a week. Best is to only drink them sometime when you really miss them. Learn to make lemonade or orange juice, once you know how it's take 2 minutes top.
b. Count calories:
Do you need to? Not really. Know exactly how much calories you eat is very useful, but I understand it's kind of a pain to do. I will give you two choices. Not counting at all and count proximately.
First, punch in your number in a Calorie Calculator.
-Don't count: List everythings you eat in a day. Want to lose weight, take foods out. Gain weight, add foods in. You must take out about 500 calories to lose 0.5 kg of bodyweight per week. Google how much calories a cup of rice have for example. Take out more until they add up to 500 (or 300 if you want to do it real slow).
A food scale would be extremely useful if you can afford it. If you don't have a scale, just guess (I do this). For example google "one banana weight calories".
Install any calorie counter on your phone (for example Lose It) so it can count and add up how much you eat. No phone? Install a lightweight android emulator. It's like install a DRM-free game really.
Weight the food, then add it in the app OR just write it on paper.
Want to lose weight, take foods out. To gain weight, add foods in. You must take out about 500 calories to lose 0.5 kg of bodyweight per week.
c. Weight loss:
So what's the right way to regulate food intake? The easy way is reduce the amount of meal. Instead of 3 meals, eat 2 meals or even 1 meal per day.
You must know that the feeling of hunger is just the way your body signals the times you usually eat. Like a dog knows it feeding time when it hears the sound of the food bowl. It's a habit.
If you skip breakfast the first time, you will feel really hungry, but I guarantee you after about 3 days of skipping, you will never feel hungry at that time ever again. Just try to do something else to keep your mind busy and DO NOT eat one bit of food in that time, not even a snack, or your hunger will get stronger each day instead of dissapear.
Remember to count your total calories of the day and adjust accordingly to your goal. Try to split them into equal amount each meal, don't have to be exactly half.
d. Weight gain:
Count your total calories of the day and adjust accordingly to your goal.
What to do if you feel full and there're still food left to reach calories goal. Eat a little more each meal. When you feel full, eat one or two more big bite. Your stomach will adjust after each meal. Over time you will feel comfortable eating a lot like it's nothing.
What I do is save the food I don't like for the end of meal like carrot or veggies, chew them good and sip some water to help swallow easier.

Most importantly is to count your calories
There is an app
The key is going to be counting calories and eating at a deficit. To lose 100 lbs a year, aim for 2 lbs a week (1000 calories a day). You'll really notice the deficit, so you might want to start at only 500 for the first week and work up to the 1000. As others mentioned, the apps loseit and myfitnesspal are good on android.
For exercise, I'd start with walking as much as you can. Take the stairs. Park far from the stores. Walk 30 minutes when you get home from work, etc, etc. For toning the muscles that will eventually be uncovered by your fat loss, I'd start with the /r/bodyweightfitness recommended routine. You can do it at home any time of the day, it'll take about 45 minutes to an hour 3 days a week.
Reading assignments: loseit FAQ, bodyweightfitness FAQ, bodyweightfitness recommended routine, r/fitness FAQ for more info, bodyweightfitness helper website, and bodyweightfitness app for android
This journey is going to take some dedication, especially if you want to hit that 100 lbs a year goal. But you got this - you can do it just like the rest of the losers around here!
Thanks, I'll check it out. Looks like the dev does update it now and then - most recent for Android looks like 12/17/15.
