Lose Weight Without Dieting is an Android app that, as its title suggests, aims to help people lose weight without feeling like they're on a diet. It's an app that allows you to add all the food and drink you've been consuming along with your exercise in order to get a picture of what you're doing right and what you're doing wrong. It also relies on you regularly weighing yourself to better guide you in the right direction. With the ability to track your progress, log your meals and count calories, there's a lot on offer here with Lose Weight Without Dieting. Let's take a closer look to see what the app can do.
The first thing you'll need to do is to download Lose Weight Without Dieting from the Play Store. Then, you'll need to agree to some terms and conditions, which are definitely worth a read.
After that, you'll need to enter some key information like your age and that sort of thing.
When you arrive at the main menu, you'll be given some hints to let you know how to use the app, which are nice and easy to follow.
The main menu is where you'll spend a lot of your time, but the "Record a Meal" and "Exercises" parts of the app are where you'll make your most important recordings. You can choose from each different meal to make things nice and easy.
One thing I liked to see is that there's a massive database of foods already pre-entered here, and you can always tweak or add your own. It just makes things quick and painless.
When logging exercises, there's also a wide array to choose from here, too. You can always search to narrow things down, as well.
A mixture of weighing yourself regularly, registering exercises and watching what you're eating will lead to weight loss over time.
Those looking to not only lose weight, but also drop cloth sizes and so on can take a look at the measurement part of the statistics laid out by Lose Weight Without Dieting.
After spending some time with Lose Weight Without Dieting, I basically felt like I was using an app that absorbs all the information I threw at it. As in, it didn't do much on its own, I had to feed it information in order to help me out. Having said that, paying attention to what you weight and making a record of your exercises is more powerful than purchasing a fancy fitness tracker. After all, you won't ever change your lifestyle unless to see the effects a change can have, or see how bad the food you're eating really is. I can't say I agree with the title of the app however, if you eat the same food all the time, which is essentially not dieting, then there will be no change in weight. Unless of course you take up exercise pretty heavily. The app also felt quite dated and a little rough around the edges, but these issues can be fixed in future updates, I'm sure.
- Speed (4/5) - Lose Weight Without Dieting runs just fine and I had no issues with the app in this area.
- Features (4/5) - Essentially, this app helps you track what you're eating, how your exercises are helping and heps you lose weight by giving you a point of reference along with tips, too.
- Theme (3.5/5) - The app feels quite dated, and the dialog boxes are often too small for the text and it looks like the app hasn't been given a fresh coat of paint for a long time.
- Overall (4/5) - If you're looking for a fairly low-key way to lose weight on your own terms, then Lose Weight Without Dieting is a good option. You enter your food, your exercises and follow some tips and if you keep using the app then you will lose weight and notice a difference. Whether or not you won't have to diet at all is debateable.
- Great app for those looking for something low-key yet genuinely helpful.
- Lots of good advice available whenever you want it.
- Lose Weight Without Dieting is a great way of keeping track of your progress.
- Pro option offers some much better features for those really looking to lose a lot of weight and keep it off.
- Ads are a sore point, but you can remove them with the pricey pro option.
- Overall look and feel is quite dated and in the wake of Android 5.0's new design language this needs updating.
All-in-all, Lose Weight Without Dieting is an app that might not help you lose weight without dieting at all, but you won't feel like you're on a strict diet. Instead, what this app does is help you track everything you do to get a picture of what and why is causing you to either put weight on or not lose any. Over time, this app could help you rethink your whole attitude to food and exercise, and that has to be a good thing.
