I've been a long ish time user of Lose It and think that it's a great app but after many members talking about My Fitness Pal, I decided to download it and see how it compares. Now that I have both installed on my phone, I have been able to checkout the similarities and the differences. One thing that I'm seeing a BIG difference in is allotted calories per day.. Example, Lose It gives me about 800 calories per day to lose 2lbs per week - and MFP gives me 1200 calories per day to lose 2lbs per week - both calculating with the same data of current weight and goal weight. This strikes me as a significant variance, and I'm not sure what to think..
I should note that as a Lose It user for the last couple years, I have lost about 35lbs and have kept it off. I do cringe on some days more than others when I have to face yet another
day of 800 calories allotment versus 1200 calories allotment. So, while I'm very skeptical about increasing my calorie intake, the idea of bumping up my allotted calories for the day is an exciting thought!
Anyone else notice the difference in allotted calories per week between both apps? Or.. which app would you decide to stick with? I'll probably remain faithful to Lose It only because it is working for me but if I get closer to goal, maybe I'll consider switching up my app.
