Unlike many diet tracker & calorie counter apps, Kurbo does not ask you to track every calorie you eat. You don’t need to buy special foods like Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig. What it does do is provide:
*A fun nutrition and activity tracker that helps children, teenagers and families develop healthy habits and record your progress in a food diary
*Daily support from a team of experts through in-app messages, emails, and texts that will lead to weight loss through healthier eating and improved diet and eating habits* Tasty, healthy food suggestions and motivation lifters that keep you inspired and informed about the healthy food pyramid
* Tips on nutrition through entertaining games, videos and weekly challenges
* Weekly Skype talks, nutrition coaching and goal-setting with a trained professional coach (premium plan purchase required.) Our coaches include Olympic athletes, professional soccer players, nutritionists, and more.

* All users will receive tips, hints, and reminders through their chat window. To take advantage of these messages, make sure to enable Notifications when prompted in the app.

Feeling better already!!!


I was feeling down on my weight and how I looked and my health and then I got Kurbo and I lost 4 pounds in three days! WOWZA! It tells you exercises to do and foods to eat and foods not to eat. It made me try new exercises and foods! Feeling really happy now and I'm addicted to exercise! No matter how much I get tired, I feel happy and want to do more! I've done three hours of exercise when Kurbo even told me just to do one hour! Trust me, this app will make you feel ship shape in no time! I love you Kurbo! 🎈🎉❤️️🙏🏻💪🏻 also, notice how their are no 1 star ratings? Great app.

Very good

the puzzler; 3 or 5

This ap is great. The reason I gave it four stars is because I think it could use improvement. If they added a setting that removed certain foods that contain allergens or meats if the user is vegetarian like me. Also it would be helpful if you could change your weekly red light goal. Great app, but I would love it if they made it better. I hope the creators see this and change it to better fit my needs

Not great


I don’t find it very clear to use. Portions are not very clear to measure for the variety of foods. It only works for ppl living in the USA when it comes to food variety in other cultures. To fully understand this app and it’s concept I am pushed to pay for a coach! Building your own meal isn’t accurate as how can a new user understand what is green, yellow or red?!
The idea of this app is nice but I believe the trick in it to make use of it is to pay for a coach. That isn’t something I appreciated.
