Lark counts calories when you log your food and beverages because calorie balance is critical for weight loss. To lose weight, you need to limit the number of calories you consume so that they are lower than the number you burn. Lark provides a daily calorie limit, with your calorie goal based on factors such as age, height, weight, gender, and average level of physical activity.
The food logging feature of this calorie counting app is easy to use, since it helps you find favorite foods easily and can also send reminders, around mealtimes, for you to log your meals.
Lark versus Other Calorie Counting Apps
Compared to other calorie-counting apps, Lark doesn't focus on precise calorie counts. Instead of focusing on the measurement of each bite you take and potentially obsessing to get an exact number of calories, Lark encourages you to log your foods while keeping other aspects in mind.
For example, Lark:
Tracks other nutrients and also some food groups
Supports mindful eating and the full enjoyment of the eating experience
Offers in-the-moment feedback on one or two parts of your meal, but not necessarily on your calorie count for that meal
Lark's nutrition coaching focuses on helping you make small changes that can become habits. That way, they can be sustainable and lead to long-term weight loss and health improvements.

These are the calories, nutrients, and foods that Lark emphasizes.
