The USDA will no longer offer food and physical activity tracking through SuperTracker, leaving current users looking for an alternative. Cronometer has garnered a reputation with fitness and nutrition experts as the most detailed and flexible nutrition tracking software available. Find out how Cronometer compares with SuperTracker and how to make the switch.

Detailed Nutrition Tracking

Food Composition database used by SuperTracker and NCCDB as well as our own curated database of branded products. Create custom foods and recipes to find the nutrition profile for your own unique foods and meals prepared at home. You can view the nutrition breakdown of any food or recipe in the Foods tab, just like SuperTracker’s Food-A-Pedia.

Nutrient targets in Cronometer default to the same Dietary Reference Intakes used by SuperTracker. You can customize each nutrient target to meet your needs, making Cronometer a better choice if you are following a specialized diet. For example, you can increase your iron target if you are vegan or customize your macros for a ketogenic diet. Add foods to your diary and watch your nutrient targets below begin to fill up!

Here’s a look at a screenshot of the nutrition tracking section, or better yet sign up for free to give it a try.

Monitor your Health

The Diary page in Cronometer combines foods, physical activities, health biometrics and notes, so you can track your health information all in one place. Monitor your diet by adding foods to your diary. Keep track of your physical activity by clicking Add Exercise, or automatically sync with a Cronometer-compatible activity tracker. Monitor your health biometrics by adding your weight, blood pressure, glucose, ketones and other measurements to your diary. Make notes about your food prep, symptoms, or activity to keep you motivated to reach your goals.

Nutrition Reports

View your progress over time in the Trends tab. Chart nutrients and biometrics to see where you have been meeting your goals and find out where you can improve. Generate Nutrition Reports to summarize your average daily nutrition intake and find out what foods contribute the most to each of your nutrient targets.
