Change the Date of Your Diary
Your diary will default to today, but you can choose to journal any day by using the right and left arrows on the green date icon (circled in red below) to go ahead or back by one day at a time. Expand the calendar widget to select a specific day to open in your diary. You can easily navigate between years or months by selecting the double or single arrows at the top of the calendar.
Add Items to Your Diary
You can journal four types of items to your daily diary by using the four buttons at the top of your screen:
- Food: Log everything you eat and get a comprehensive view of your nutrition
- Exercise: Log how much time you spend doing physical activities, and we'll keep track of how much extra energy you've burned.
- Biometrics: Record measurements like your weight, body temperature, blood pressure, and cholesterol to track trends over time.
- Notes: Keep any notes for the day. Add photos to your notes for more detail
A summary of your daily nutrition is displayed in the Energy Summary section. You can see at a glance how well you are hitting each of your nutritional targets.
At the bottom of your diary, you will see a number of gauges. These can be used to determine different nutrient balances including:
- Omega 6:Omega 3
The Diary also displays two charts on the left hand side of the screen. These are a quick reference of your weight change and energy consumed and burned over a given period of time. Use the menu in the bottom right corner of the Weight change graph for more options.
These charts are in addition to the detailed Charts found in the Trends tab of your account.
Choose from the drop-down menu whether you would like to view Energy Burned, Consumed, Net, or Combined. You can also choose the date range you would like to view.
View at a glance the difference between the lowest and highest weights you have logged in your diary over a given period of time. You can change the date range by using the drop-down menu below the graph. Use the settings menu in the bottom right corner to show/hide your weight goal and toggle Zoom-to-fit.
Track your fasting periods by scheduling your fasts on the settings tab, then view, edit, start and end your current fast in the diary widget.
