ControlMyWeight By Calorie King
ControlMyWeight is an iOS app that helps you count calories and make smarter food choices throughout the day. Here’s our review.
What is ControlMyWeight?
ControlMyWeight is a calorie counter app exclusively available for the iPhone (sorry, Android users).
The app works like most other calorie counter apps: you input the food items you eat throughout the day, and the app scans its database to total up all of the things you ate.
Throughout the day, the app also keeps track of your water consumption and your exercise habits.
This allows you to see exactly how many calories you’ve used throughout the day, and how many calories are in your target for weight loss.
The app is created by a company called CalorieKing, which also offers a weight loss community online as well as paperback versions of its calorie counting app.
ControlMyWeight is priced at a one-time fee of $4.99. There are no membership fees or hidden costs: it’s just $4.99 for a one-time fee. There are also no advertisements within the app.
ControlMyWeight comes with features like:
— Verified Food Data: The creator of the app claims that every entry is verified to clinical standards and is continuously updated.
— Weight Loss Programs: The app comes with multiple types of weight management programs. The app will tell you what your target weight should be (based on BMI calculations) and then it will tell you how many calories to consume if you want to safely lose weight, maintain your current weight, or gain weight.
— Works Offline: You can add foods from anywhere you are with or without a network connection. The database of foods and calorie counts is available offline with no internet required.
— Exercise Database: Find out how much energy you’re spending every day by scanning the ControlMyWeight exercise database. Just like the food database, this shows clinically-verified weight loss information for a wide variety of exercises.
The Food and Exercise Databases
ControlMyWeight publishes both its food and exercise databases online, which lets you see what kind of stuff the app can track.
Before signing up and paying your $5 fee, you might want to check the database and see if it aligns with how you usually eat and exercise.
There’s a wide variety of foods available – including foods and products you’d buy from various fast food restaurants and even grocery stores like Trader Joe’s. You can also sort through foods based on the meal type or category. A full selection of alcoholic drinks is also available.

The exercise library, on the other hand, is only available to members. You can view that library here: CalorieKing.com/workoutroom/
How Much Weight Can You Lose?
The app’s recommended weight loss plan claims that it will allow you to lose 1 to 2 pounds per week which is “safe and sustainable for weight loss”, according to the creator.
Meanwhile, the weight gain plans promise to help you gain 1 to 2 pounds per week.
Why Not Android? Is There A ControlMyWeight Android Release Date?
It’s 2016 and most apps are available on both iOS and Android, which makes sense because Android is used by 82.8% of smartphones in the world today.
Nevertheless, ControlMyWeight has never been an Android app. It’s always been exclusively available for iOS and the iPhone.
ControlMyWeight answers this question in its FAQs and says:
“Although we have plans to release an Android app in the near future, there is currently no Android version available.”
The app is exclusively designed for the iPhone, but it will also work on the iPad and iPad Mini.
CalorieKing is a weight loss program available for $49 per year. The app is a separate product created by the company. You don’t need to subscribe to CalorieKing to use the app. There’s also a free trial and a monthly membership price, which is $12 per month.
Whether you’re using the CalorieKing program or the ControlMyWeight app, the company claims it can help anyone “lose the weight forever”.
