Calorie counting is a pain. Ask anyone. Having to painstakingly read food labels, having to add numbers together on a calculator… – who has the time? And that’s food you buy, not even food you cook!

It’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed and very put off by the whole thing, but don’t throw in the towel just yet. There’s a solution! Today’s technology is making calorie counting a whole lot easier. Lifesum, a health and fitness app, has a food recognition feature that makes counting calories as simple as taking a photo of what you’re eating. That’s right. All you do is take a photo of your food, and the app will give you a list of ingredients, the full nutritional information, and a food rating telling you how healthy your food is.

Track calories through your camera

The feature is built on an image recognition AI and enables fast and accurate recognition of food across a variety of categories and cuisines. It’s surprisingly accurate, and the good news is that the more food that’s tracked through it, the faster and smarter the AI becomes, making it progressively easier to find and track your food.

The Lifesum app is all about helping to make healthy living simple and straightforward. With the new food recognition feature, there’s no need to try typing complicated food names or waste time scrolling seemingly endlessly through lists of foods that are similar but not the same as what you’re eating. Simply take a photo of the food, select the relevant tag, choose your portion size, and click done.

The app does more than take photos too. You can use their barcode scanner to scan foods at the grocery store and see their nutritional information; you can pick a health or weight loss goal and try one of their many health plans covering everything from high-protein diets to ketogenic diets; and you can browse tons of healthy recipes designed to keep you happy, healthy, and well-fed whether you’re trying to lose weight or gain muscle.
