Tracking exercises makes it easier to lose weight

To ensure you eat the right amount of calories to reach your weight goal, we recommend tracking exercises. When you track exercises in Lifesum, the daily calorie intake will increase, so you don’t eat less than you should in your pursuit of losing weight. Eating below your calorie goal can be harmful to your health and your muscle, which doesn’t benefit your weight loss over time. By tracking your fitness with Lifesum, you’re helping yourself make good choices on your weight loss journey.

Lifesum’s app is compatible with a variety of fitness and exercise trackers

To make your weight journey as smooth as possible, Lifesum is compatible with Apple Health, Google Fit, Android Health, Runkeeper, Fitbit, Moves, Jawbone, and Endomondo. You can choose to enter your exercises manually, or connect the Lifesum app to your exercise tracker of choice for an automatic sync. Just sign up and download Lifesum from the App Store or Google Play to get started!

Benefits of using an exercise tracker

1. Avoid overeating after workouts with an exercise tracker

One of the most common mistakes people make during their weight loss journey is overestimating their calorie burn during workouts. Also, since working out increases your appetite, your body can trick you into eating more calories than you burned during the workout.

Although exercise is fantastic for your health, it does not affect your weight in the same manner as food does. For example, a 30 minutes long run will burn about 300kcal, which equals the same amount of calories as in 2.5 bananas.

With an exercise tracker, you’ll get a clear view of how many calories you burned during your workout. By entering your exercise manually into Lifesum or by connecting the app to your wearable, you’ll be able to see exactly how much you should eat on a particular day in order to lose weight.

2. Use an exercise tracker to find your perfect workout

Examples of high calorie burn workouts are jumping rope, burpees, and crossfit. However, if you need to rest a lot during such high intense workouts, you won’t burn as many calories as you might think. In some cases, a lower intensity activity where you can remain active throughout the whole workout will burn more calories in total for you. Use an exercise tracker to find out where you perform best! Lifesum is available for iPhone and Android and has the option of a free version.

3. Track your heart beat with an exercise tracker

A higher heart rate during workouts indicates a higher calorie burn. When tracking your exercises, you’ll learn what it takes to reach your maximum heart rate and get motivated to persist a little longer. Also note that different heart rate ranges have different benefits – if you want to improve your cardiovascular performance, you’ll want to reach your max heart rate for as long as possible during a workout.
