Editors’ Notes

Want to lose weight? Gain muscle? Simply follow a healthier and more balanced diet? Lifesum can help with any or all of these goals, wrapping together delicious meal plans, detailed exercise tracking, and even regular reminders to drink plenty of water. There are diets to suit a variety of goals, tons of trackable fitness activities, and a friendly, supportive guide that keeps the science tucked away behind the scenes.

Beautiful! But could use customized notifications.


This app is gorgeous! I love the articles and the recipes look absolutely scrumptious. The aesthetics alone are what make this the most effective app, and it is super smooth! Even on this old phone, where everything else crashes. Huge thanks to the devs for achieving this. Now, I turned on notifications expecting reminders to update my water or add my meals and exercise, which would be really nice! Sometimes you get busy and don't track anything; it is the LAST thing on your mind. I did, however, get constant reminders to update my weight. As someone who has a Lifesum of 119 (almost completely perfect! 😲), I find that a little unhealthy. No-one should be weighing themselves every day, especially if you already have an unhealthy relationship with your weight, body fat percentage, or food. Even on a practical level, it doesn't make much sense. So I turned off the notifications, but it would be nice to be able to select what kind of notifications we get in the future! Such as for new recipes or articles, and reminders in other areas of body and health maintenance. Or a way to change the frequency: Weighing yourself every X amount of days. If there is already a way to do this, I hope the settings for it become easier to find. ❤️ Thanks for reading!

Database of food leaves a lot to be desired

I signed up for a subscription this time, and I do think it gives a lot of good information and over all is a good tool to help me control my diet to keep to my goals. However the database of food is kind of terrible.
Most of the foods don't offer units of measurements you would usually see in recipes like cups, tablespoons, and teaspoons. In fact you can tell most of them are user submitted because theres literally only “1 serving” as the unit of measurement. And what is that? I don't know.
It wouldn't bother me with boxes of foods so much as it is frustrating for basic foods like chicken, vegetables, eggs, milk.... standard foods that usually have standard dietary measurements that should be put into the database by lifesum, not the users. So that i can put in foods from recipes.
Honestly the other two calorie counter apps are far superior in this regard. I appreciate the clean design here, but if the database doesn't improve I don't think I will be too interested in renewing my subscription. Its too much of a hassle to search and search and guess which food and measurement might be kind of accurate.
I know calorie counting is not an exact thing... but with this you probably will be WAY off...

Developer Response

The verified foods are from several food databases: the USDA, food items from Livsmedelsverket in Sweden, from the UK Food Standards Agency and the BLS from Germany.

Parts of the food database is created by our users. These food items can, unfortunately contain wrong nutrition values. But it is now possible for users to edit those or add missing values. In order to edit food, please click on the item in question and then on ""Edit Food"". Please, find more information here:

Verified items can not be edited by users but can be reported directly through the app.

In addition you can, of course, always create your own food / meals / recipes under Me / Favorites.

We will, of course, constantly clean the database from our side as well.
