Lifesum: Diet & Macro Tracker Reviews


Used to be ..  The-4thHorseman  1 star

Used to be a great app. Since the update it crashes every time I use it! Would love for it to be fixed!


Sometime it doesn’t work on the watch  Jac_O_Latern  3 star

I really like this app in general. It has everything in one place which is great and I love the little motivator Apple you get on the Apple Watch but sometimes it doesn’t always work. It only updates when I have the app open on my phone and THEN refresh the app on the watch and sometimes the last page showing drink, stretch, movement is dark and won’t update.


Great App/Experiencing Issues  ashcut1120  4 star

I’ve been using this app for about 6 months and I love it. Easy to use and aesthetically pleasing so I enjoy logging everything. Unfortunately, it suddenly erased all of my progress and now has the goal as “gain weight” and I cannot change it. So, I was extremely happy with it but now I can’t track my progress.

Great but could use a few improvements  Chelsea AZ  2 star

**Update: the app is so buggy it drives me insane. It recently erased all my profile information, my goal weight, even the plan I was on changed from “Lose Weight” to “Gain Weight” and won’t let me change it back. On top of that, it’s constantly changing my weight history on its own. It will just randomly add in weights that I never logged, so my data ends up all messed up and I have to go in and fix it. PLUS the macronutrient information on many basic food items such as rice are just plain wrong! I try to send in the appropriate information but it never gets fixed and it’s a huge pain to have to double check the calorie/macro info of every single food I want to track. Isn’t that the whole point of using this app?? Suuuuuper frustrating and I will not be continuing with my Premium membership if these bugs keep going unaddressed. *** I upgraded to Premium the first day of having this app because I needed to be able to customize my macronutrients; that being said, I can’t speak much to the free version, so this review is about the premium version. The premium version is wonderful! I love the beautiful design, the friendly and helpful reminders, it’s SOOOO much better than competitor apps (MFP) looks-wise. I LOVE that there are tips for how to get better day and/or meal ratings. With premium, if your meal is “imbalanced” you can see in a helpful graph exactly why (slightly high in fat, low in carbs, etc) which is really quick and helpful when planning what to cook. I also love that it cheers you on as you track your water, and applauds you if you had a great day by sticking to your macros. I’m really competitive and a super perfectionist so it’s like a game trying to get my numbers exactly right every time, and when I do the app says cute stuff like “AWESOMESAUCE!” or “You’re on a roll!! Keep up the good work!” I also love the little tips and tricks plugged in throughout the app, like “Prime your tummy for lunch with a glass or two of water”. It really helps contextualize WHY we need to hydrate before meals, etc. I like that you can customize which notifications you get and at what time. That’s a huge improvement over other apps. I’d like to say it’s totally user-friendly, but it definitely takes some getting used to. Once you get used to it though it is pretty easy to use. Some of the features and settings are a little bit buried (for example, it took some work to figure out how to turn off the workout deductions from my calorie count. If you’re truly tracking macros you should NOT be allowing yourself to eat more calories just because you walked a bunch of steps that day). My biggest gripe is that there is a lot of incorrect macronutrient quantities associated with the food in here, even the barcode scanning, so I’m constantly having to double check food labels and make adjustments to the macros (which kind of defeats the purpose of the scanner). It’s not always, but it’s enough to be frustrating when I’m hangry and trying to cook lol. What I don’t understand is why sometimes there is an edit button for the macros, and sometimes there’s not? I think maybe if it hasn’t been “verified by Lifesum” yet, you can edit, but sometimes the ones that are “verified” are incorrect. This is probably just because food products change over time, but it would be nice to ALWAYS be able to edit the macros info associated with the food, based on the correct food label info I’m holding in my hands at the time. A big recommendation I have for the developers is to add the ability to import recipe ingredients from the web! I use many different blogs, apps, and websites to find recipes and it’d be so much easier to upload the ingredients list than to have to add everything manually one by one. They have a couple partner apps for fitness tracking etc, but recipe importing would be top-notch. Another recommendation is meal sharing! My boyfriend and I both have the app and we eat most meals together. It’d be awesome if I could AirDrop our dinner to him so he doesn’t have to manually load every single ingredient too, after I’ve already done all that work. Or maybe not even AirDrop, but just a share button? Maybe a text link? Any sharing capabilities would be so helpful!! My last recommendation is to have meal suggestions based on my macro needs. Since I pay for premium already and have access to custom macros and custom recipes/plans, why not suggest recipes based on what macros I need in each meal? Let’s say I’m super low on protein for the day but somewhat high on carbs. It’d be awesome if that app could recognize that, then when I click the + sign next to Dinner, it could say “Try this recipe for dinner....” and it’d be grilled chicken breast with zucchini noodles or something. I hope this makes sense lol. The app is smart enough already to recognize where my deficits are for the day or for the meal, so recipe suggestions tailored to those specific needs would be incredible!!! “Oh you need 22g of protein, 10g carbs, and 48g fat for lunch on the 400-500 calorie range? Try half an avocado with 3 slices of turkey breast and 1 slice of cheese” (or whatever). All in all I love using the app and it’s already helped me so much! Any tracking is good tracking, and this app finds a way to make it fun! I highly recommend even the free version if you’re new to tracking or just want a better idea of what you’re eating. But honestly, commit to your health and upgrade to premium. It’s worth the investment and you’ll actually use the app once you spend the money!!! If they can add in my suggestions it would be a 7/5 star app I think ;)

Fix the bugs!  Unkwn 2327  2 star

It was working just fine but it started to change my settings on its own! I selected that I want to lose weight and it continues to change to gain weight. If this bug is not fixed I would like my money back. I paid for the full year so at least refund me the other 11 months worth cause it’s pointless for me to have paid for an app that is not doing its job.


what’s going on with the app lately?!  lindsey5698  3 star

I LOVED this app. For the last 2 years, it has been my life. I went from a size 16 to a 6 using the classic dieting plan. But as of this past weekend, it automatically says I’ve consumed 500 calories and burned 300 even on future days. There’s a bug and it needs to be fixed. Please help!!


I really like this app...when it works  eliza.beth07  3 star

It’s a great app when everything is working correctly but it seems like there’s been a lot of bugs. For example currently it’s telling me my goal calorie intake is 6 and I can’t change my weight from 0 lbs


Doesn’t add my weight of the day  slimOlive  2 star

Also, I’m trying to “loose weight” vs. other options, but the app stays on “ gain weight” goal without possibility to change it.


Charged me!!  Laciekai  1 star

When I signed up it said $3.99 but instead they took $44.99 i absolutely was not aware of this! I want my money back. This app is NoT worth it.


Easy to use but has some bugs  Cyn719  3 star

This app is easy to use but I have been having some issues. For example I selected a food and it said “5 calories” per serving. This seemed off but I continued using the calories I knew I had eaten. Upon leaving a renter if the app my calories were way off and it when I went to edit the food the calories per serving was 350. I have to close the app and restart it and the verify my entries every time.


Update incorrect..,help  FerrManu  3 star

After the update the app doesn’t shows the correct kcal per meal. It looks like I should eat only 2 kcal each meal. 😰😰😰


Tenth year of using this Great App  Charmingz  5 star

I love this app - get serious about diet and exercise for months and then slack off but it’s always there on my iphone to return to. Over 6 months I tracked a 14kg straight line drop in weight and now need to return to that. I started in January 2009 when it was called ShapeUp club. As an older user I need to do 1000cals to have any hope of really loosing weight even though 1200 is recommended minimum - but today I had 10 grapes and it reported 140. Then total for the day 4184..... Ugh. Then I discovered the database had lost my date of birth. And the target doubled to over 8000 when I put in my d of b As I edited the target changed to 2000 cals and that could be changed to my usual 1000 cals. All a bit confusing but I think it must have been an update that caused a glitch.


Can’t even sign up.  JustLoza  1 star

When I go to sign up, and put in my weight it comes up with “Are you sure that’s what you meant? Please try a different number”. I can’t even create an account, let alone use the app itself.


Great app but...  tommyshaw47  3 star

The app itself is absolutely fantastic. My only gripe is the Apple Watch complication doesn’t update unless you open it with the app running on your phone which pretty much renders it useless.

Tara Jarratt

Very very helpful!!  Tara Jarratt  5 star

Easy to use and super helpful!! Didn’t really know what I was looking for but this was perfect!!!


Fine I guess  xanthethippe  4 star

Great app, but a lot of disadvantages caused by premium. Premium is a bit costly too. I wouldn’t buy premium unless was a bit cheaper. Thanks


App keeps logging me out and quitting  Mikey!!!  1 star

This app is great but since a recent upgrade it keeps making me sign in each day and now everything I log in, the app crashes. Now I can’t use it at all.


Colour change  Lp1818  3 star

Can we have the option to change the colour from green. Hard to read. Thanks


Motivating App  Emma._.Jay  5 star

Easy app to use, great link to recipes, consistently loosing 1.5 kg a week without feeling like I am on a diet


Macros  mrsgannas  1 star

It would be good to be able to set your own macros rather than have to use what’s been set from one of the diet plans :)


Had High Hopes  SimpleTart  2 star

I love the UI of the app it’s so organized with a lot of information. The only thing that has me truly upset is that after I paid for a year’s worth of premium, if I try to choose a meal plan, the app crashes and I can’t see my meal plan. I need some sort of help because now I feel like my money is simply thrown away for a feature that I have no access to


Hard to read font  Grannnd  1 star

Perhaps this wasn’t made for boomers’ eyes. It is impossible to see the font. I don’t see a way to make the background darker so I can see the white lettering. This is so frustrating because I paid for a year subscription. Tried to get a refund immediately after installing. iTunes doesn’t allow cancellation. Ugh!!!


😤 Bad App...if only it worked with iwatch  Cdawg18  1 star

DO NOT DOWNLOAD if you want to use with iwatch4. Does not sync with watch. Spent an hour on phone with Apple and confirmed no issues with phone or watch. I even paid for Premium (oops) and after researching further I learn from their site their Mon - Fri operation is apologizing and making excuses for how complex it is to sync with watch. Maybe this Swedish company should be working 24/7 to fix. How bout informing people before they pay for Premium? Seemed like a good app...but not for watch users. 🙁

Kali Everson

Great app but DESPERATELY need a way to add foods  Kali Everson  3 star

It’s a great app, it’s very visually appealing, but a lot of the things I eat are not on the database, and there is no way to add them to the database like you can in most other apps. You can add the calories, but that’s it, and I have to redo it every single time. It’s very frustrating and I may get a different app for this reason.


Wow!!  KatPlays3  5 star

This app works amazing! I’ve had it for a week and I’ve lost 5 pounds! I’m eating a lot healthier thanks to the app!


Best app for tracking, hands down  Candy2Carla  4 star

It is so simple to understand. It’s so full with information. It’s appealing to the eye. It’s motivational. It’s everything one needs to be healthy! I downloaded it just in the look for a 5 week program as a small goal I had for myself, but I think I may extend this onto my actual every day life from now on!


Suggestion to add a vitamin section!  Crystalleyezedreams  4 star

I love this app! Could I suggest a place to put in daily vitamins and supplements? Perhaps a daily checklist for them? I take gummy vitamins so they do have calories but I did not see anywhere to input them.


Health app  ses3_wave  1 star

Why doesn’t Lifesum input my calories eaten, carbs, protein, and fat data into my health app, it gets data from the health app with how many carbs I have burned because of my Apple Watch so why can’t it input that data as well ...? If this is a miss understanding and I can do this pls help and I’ll change my rating :)


Disappointed  72462837  1 star

Thought you could receive grocery lists for all their plans, but it’s only for a few types. So basically I paid for a glorious MyFitnessPal.


Meh.  thezombiemama  2 star

I like the aesthetic of the app so far, but there are a few things that I’m struggling with. It’s slow to sync with my Apple Watch, and it’s impossible to add meals by their macro amounts. For example, i wanted to add a treat (soy green tea frap from Starbucks) and I can’t add it unless I submit each ingredient, rather than inputting the nutrition information from starbucks’ website (title, number of carbs, protein, etc). So I end up just putting it in by number of calories (which rarely works on the first try) and it defeats the purpose. I paid for a year’s subscription— hopefully it gets better from here or I will probably cancel this month.
