iOS/Android: When it comes to tracking food, we're bad at estimating our portion sizes. We've shared reference charts like this one before, but they're not exactly handy to carry. An update to Lose It! now lets you quickly reference a visual guide for estimating serving sizes when you need it.
The last time we talked about Lose It!, we pointed out a feature that let you log your foods by taking photos of them. This time it's a more subtle addition to your food log. Specifically, as you log a serving size, notice the text "Help With Serving Size" in the bottom right corner. Tapping it brings up an overlay like the following:
Now you have an extra point of reference to help you log your foods a bit more accurately! You can swipe left and right to scroll across different examples, including standard serving sizes for nuts, pasta and peanut butter. You're already doing awesome by using a food tracking tool, so learning to nail your portion sizes is yet another boon to your weight goals.
