Originally developed as a diet and health tracking app, Lifesum has recently implemented new updates that utilize machine learning and image recognition. Unlike the majority of food tracking apps, Lifesum makes counting calories a breeze thanks to its massive database of food.
This database is just one part of Lifesum, as the updated app now includes food recognition capabilities. This means users can simply take a picture of their meal and the app will accurately identify all the items on the plate. All items identified by the AI can be added to a users meal tracking with just a simple tap.
The food recognition tool is currently available with a premium subscription to Lifesum, which can range from $3.75 per month to $7.50. The app also includes a collection of diet plan complete with over 1,000 recipes and nutritional advice.
