Lose It! loves sending me badges

I also received one saying I’ve eaten a trunk load of vegetables. That one, at least, will make my nutritionists happy, showing how I’ve changed my mix of foods to eliminate a great deal of fatty items and replace them with veggies.

Lose It! is the app I’ve been using the past several years to keep track of my calories, salt, sugar and fat intake. I find it the most convenient of several I’ve tried because I don’t need to be online to record my daily food intake.

Its food database has expanded considerably over the years I’ve used it and it has a cool bar code scanning feature that allows me to enter new packaged food items that I buy which are not in its database.

It also provides reports on my eating that I find very useful for tracking patterns of consumption and weight loss. I’ll be writing more about those in a future post.

One thing Lose It! does that I find a bit goofy, however, is sending me digital badges every once in a while for achieving something only it seems to know about (i.e. these are not goals I create for myself).

I got one on New Year’s Day, for example, saying I had started the year on the right foot. Not sure what triggered that, likely something I ate that day.
