Your smartphone can help you get healthier: Lose It!

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, July 23, 2015

Your smartphone can help you get healthier.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    When you aren’t paying attention, it’s easy to lose track of how many calories you’re eating in a day.    But if you’re carrying a smartphone with you …why not use it to log the food you’re eating.    There are plenty of apps to choose from.   Lose It! for iOS and Android devices is one of those being used by millions…and for good reason.   CEO Charles Teague…

“For the last five or six years, there’s been a ton of innovation in this space.  But most of what has been happening has been focused on a goal for everybody.   A steps goal for everybody.  A weight goal for everybody.  A calorie budget for everybody.  And Lose It is increasingly about personalization.  We take the data that we have, more than 25 billion foods logged, billions of exercises logged and we use that to actually give you a very personal plan and personal analysis about the choices you’re making.”

The basic version is free.  You can choose to connect with friends or groups for peer support.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
