How to can track your meals using the full macro tracker:
Adding the meal
1. To track a meal on mobile, select “+” on the bottom right to pull up the menu and select Meal.
2. Right away, after selecting to track a “Meal,” the client will be able to snap a photo of their meal, upload a photo from their gallery, or skip the photo and go straight to logging the meal. Skipping the picture does not affect the meal, it simply won’t have a picture in the main dashboard or be saved with a picture if selected later.
Searching for a Food & Barcode Scanning
3. Next you can add in all of the foods that make up your meal. This can be done by searching for the food in the search bar.
Additionally, you can also easily add the item by scanning the barcode (available for the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK).
Any recently selected foods will be stored in the RECENT tab. And by tapping on the name of the food, clients will be able to view all of the details of the food. This includes the serving information, calories, macros, and micronutrients.
Tip: If you want a food to appear under your FAVORITES tab for ease of access to their favorite foods, they can simply tap the heart icon on the top right corner.
Adding Custom Foods
If a food does not exist when you search for the food, you can go to the CUSTOM tab and add a custom food manually.
You will be able to input the name of the food, serving size, calories (all required), including optional info like macros and micronutrient details, and include a photo.
Adding the Meal
4. After adding in the foods, you will see an overview of what’s been added to the meal. You can adjust the serving size, add in more foods, add a description, and update the photo if you need wish then hit SAVE to save the meal. And ta-da! A new meal has been tracked!
The meal will also be automatically tagged as Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, or Snack depending on your phone’s time (based on the moment you hit save). If they are pre-logging or logging late, you will need to go back and change the time.
