How To Use Lifesum (Android)
Health apps have definitely grown in popularity over the past few years. Perhaps it’s because we, as a society, are starting to become much more healthy. Or perhaps it’s because mobile technology is beginning to really help us when it comes to our health needs. Or perhaps it’s because we’ve all done that thing where you download an app and really think you’re going to use it…even if you don’t really end up using it at all. I may or may not have done that a few times with health-related apps. But that’s besides the point. Let’s take a look at Lifesum for Android devices.
What Is Lifesum?
Lifesum is an app to help keep track for your various health needs. Trying to eat healthier? Lifesum can help you with that. Trying to exercise more? Lifesum can help you with that. Trying to build a robotic arm so that you can defeat your enemies? I’m not sure if Lifesum can help you with that. Maybe the Premium version?
How Do You Use It?
Lifesum is a pretty simple application to use. You begin using the app by choosing your objectives, such as if you’d like to eat healthier, lose weight, or even gain muscle. You then give the app some basic information such as your height, weight, and gender. From there, you’re free to begin tracking your various habits, such as what you eat, what you drink, and how often you exercise by tapping the proper sections.
The Bottom Line
Lifesum is a very well-designed app for tracking your fitness needs. Not only does the application make tracking your dietary behaviors very simple, it also tells you how healthy your habits are. For example, while inputting the food you’ve eaten, it will give you an actual grade of the item. And, to my shock and awe, triple pepperoni double cheese pizza is not all that healthy for you.
