The Weight is Almost Over
Lume™ is the groundbreaking, science-backed fitness platform that makes it easier than ever to manage your weight and improve your health.
Most fitness trackers only track what you burn—and they’re just guessing based on generic algorithms that don’t take your personal metabolism into account.
Want to track intake? You’ll spend hours measuring and logging every bite. It’s exhausting, it’s frustrating, and it’s a recipe (pun intended) for error.
It’s time for something better.
Why Counting Calories Doesn’t Work
If painstaking food logging worked, we wouldn’t be facing an obesity epidemic. The truth: calorie counting and food logging is exhausting, time-consuming—and seriously problematic. Not only does it tend to be inaccurate in spite of best efforts, it can lead to an unhealthy obsession that will do more harm than good. (And if you don’t really understand what you’re burning and how your body processes food, your estimates of what you’re consuming won’t help.)

Busting Weight Loss Myths
Don’t believe these 5 myths
Time magazine recently ran an article on the 9 Myths of Weight Loss. Five of their research observations around this topic are worth noting.
Myth: To lose weight you only need to eat less and exercise more. While studies like the National Weight Control Registry (of which MetaLogics’ Dr. James Hill is a founder) show that people who lose weight successfully tend to change their eating habits and increase their exercise, that's not the whole story. Other factors, like genetics, environment, emotional state and what types of food a person eats can also contribute. "If you just try to eat less and exercise more, most people will lose that battle," said Dr. David Ludwig, director of the New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center at Boston Children’s Hospital. Instead, Ludwig recommends people concentrate on eating healthier foods, and avoid highly processed food with lots of added sugar.
