Description

Developed by Dietitians, GO is the easiest meal and fitness tracker you’ll ever use. Simply pick your color, pick your size… and GO! This finely crafted app offers one-touch meal entry that creates a visual food log more powerful, understandable and useful than typical calorie trackers. GO helps real people get real results: "This app has been a tremendous aid in bringing accountability to my food intake and has helped me lose 50 lbs. since February. Keep up the awesome work!" ~ Chris GO plots each entry on an easy-to-read timeline in daily, weekly or monthly formats. This zoomed out view helps you see the big picture with a single glance. And when it comes down to it, your day-to-day habits are what really make a difference in your health. GO can help you achieve your goals in the following ways: 1) The visual timeline is eye opening. You’ll instantly realize your personal strengths and weaknesses. Are you eating too much at night? Eating too many snacks? Skipping breakfast too often? Not getting enough workouts logged on a weekly basis? One look at a weekly or monthly timeline, and you’ll be empowered to make changes that pertain to YOU and the intricacies of your lifestyle. 2) You’ll find new motivation to stay on track. Why? Because you’ll naturally reflect on your choices. You’ll find yourself thinking: “I’ve eaten green healthy meals all day and I don’t want a huge red unhealthy meal on my timeline” Or you may have a spiraling out of control “red” day – with lots of unhealthy meals, and you’ll find yourself wanting to add something “green” to make your timeline look better. Trust us, this really happens. 3) You’ll be consistent. GO makes it easy to capture the most important details in seconds. It’s fast, it’s easy and it’s visual. That means you’ll use it consistently and make better choices more often – making you healthier with each positive choice. GO is built on the science of practical, everyday life. Typical calorie trackers are rarely accurate because we all tend to underestimate our food intake, overestimate our activity and we rarely, if ever, have the exact weight/size/brand/recipe to enter, making the whole process “just a guess” anyway. The point is, most of know when we make healthy or not-so-healthy choices… what we really need is the motivation to make better choices - and the visibility to see the impact of our choices over time. FEATURES: • Enter meals and activities in seconds. • Integrated camera lets you snap pictures of your meals for precise meal tracking. • Interactive timeline shows daily, weekly and monthly views of your eating and exercise habits. • “How to Succeed” coaching section offers practical guidance on what behaviors to look for on your timeline and how to make healthy adjustments. • Syncs your results to the cloud. • Automatically plots workouts you do with other lolo apps.

  • Needs ability to describe meals

    I think this app is great except 1) I can't write a little note about my meals ie: banana when I forget to take a pic 2) can't edit entries. App would be infinitely better with these two small features. Otherwise it's quick and easy to use, and I like the visuals for determining how I did each day.
  • Good idea, rubbish in executing it

    Was really excited to get this as I'm a visually focused person, but found myself frustrated and disappointed. It allows for photos, but doesn't allow for you to use photos from your library. As a new user, I don't automatically think of opening GO right away to take a picture of a meal -- I'll just take a picture of it. But GO doesn't offer the ability to add pictures into the app/timeline... You must take it as a live feed, straight to the app. This would maybe be fair enough, if you could at least have a green generic circle WITH A DESCRIPTION WHEN YOU CLICK. The "edit" meal button allows you to delete a meal, but at no point came you name/describe even keyword it. This is also VERY unhelpful if you have a small snack/meal, because the size of the circle correlates to size of meal, so if you take a picture of a small snack you have an image the size of the tip of your index finger to look at, and since you can't name anything, a week later you'll be squinting trying to figure out what you ate because it's such a low quality picture (that doesn't zoom) you won't be able to tell. Was really excited about potential of this app but wow, such a waste. Seriously, use something like Instagram instead. You'll get your visual needs, can use existing photos, have decent sized photos, and can label/describe everything. UPDATE: July 2015 - I redownloaded this over a year later to see if it had improved. It hadn't. Waste of money, space and time.
  • No obsessions anymore

    This is very good for tracking how I'm doing and giving me better time spent on moving forward instead of obsessing what I should have done. Because I only see colors then I can quickly know if I am doing great and decide if my next meal should be green or if it's ok if I splurge a little. I think it's helped me to be less obsessive and be more relaxed yet keeping within my set boundaries. It works!
  • Good!

    I think this app is great. I've been looking for a way to track my food without counting calories. I already know what not to eat and how much I should or shouldn't eat, it's more about remembering what all I have eaten in a day and seeing trends. I would give it 5 stars except there doesn't seem to be a way to edit my entry or add it in at a later time. (I accidentally deleted an entry trying to edit it and I can't add it back in.) Also, the photos can't be added from the camera roll. Other than that it's great. Thanks.
  • It's okay, but could use improvement

    I really do like this app compared to a calorie tracker. They both have it's pro's and con's; however, I'm left wondering which color to use for certain meals. It's left up to the users to decide and I feel there should be more examples of which food fits in which color category. I am also interested in seeing how much water I drink throughout the day and how hydrate I am for the week and month. Maybe there could be a separate bubble for water. It's not just about the food you put in, but how much water.
  • Simple and Easy!

    A fun and unique way to track your meals. I’ve actually been sticking with this when I usually drop off (too much work).
  • I like it but...

    It should be easier to select the quality and size of a meal. Once I have to size set and try and change the color quality my size isn't fixed. Is there a trick to the slider? It makes it very obvious that I'm tracking before meals when I need a minute or two to fiddle with the slide. There should either be to slides or you should slide size first and then quality. I understand the appeal of simple design but this isn't functional. It's the only thing I don't like about the app and it's crucial.
  • I'm giving up on this, sorry

    When I originally purchased this app, I pointed out that there was a bug if your life requires you to sleep during the day because you cannot set your active time to something such as 2:00pm to 6:00am. The app automatically changes it to 2:00pm to 6:00pm. They acknowledged the problem and said it would be fixed. A couple months later I checked in again because it hadn't been fixed and they told me that they are a small team and I can't expect them to be able to update their apps that quickly. Ok, irritating but I'll wait for an update. Well two updates later and this simple bug isn't fixed. It doesn't appear that this company is willing to support their products. Without being able to view your timeline, this app is all but worthless.
  • Really like this concept

    There are plenty of calorie-counting apps out there. This is not one of them. This is an overall healthy eating and exercising app. This app is based on the premise that we really all have an idea of what we should be eating, and we are smart enough to look at a meal and evaluate whether it's healthy or unhealthy. For those who are total newbies to nutrition, there is a guide that tells you whether a meal is (from healthiest to unhealthiest) green, yellow, orange, or red, and whether it is a small snack or a large meal. I don't care for calorie counters because it's completely tedious to log every single tablespoon of oil and I don't believe calories in-calories out is the full story of any diet. (There has been a lot written about this - look up Gary Taubes if you are interested.) GO is a new, visual concept. You judge your meal using guidelines and (optional) take a snapshot. Do the same for a workout, without photo. As time goes on, you'll be able to look back on your history and see overall whether your habits have been healthy or unhealthy. It's motivating to want to get more green dots than orange and red dots. I have a few wishes for the app: perhaps a weight counter so you can see your weight in the timeline to see how your general habits affect your weight over the long haul. Maybe also some way to track a couple of optional habits, such as water intake, and have those show up on the chart. It would be cool to see little glasses of water show up on the timeline. They also mail really good diet tips, and it would be great to see these pushed through the app. :) Anyway, there is a slight learning curve, but I like this app and I appreciate having something for those of us who are tired of and disillusioned with calorie counting!

    The worst lolo burn inc app ever. I am very supportive, and I have 98% of you apps. I don't understand it, has no information I find usable, I am very disappointed , expected something much much better out of you.... Only other word I can use is ashamed of you.
