Like a lot of our users we met Cynthia because she shared her Cronometer Diary screen on Instagram! After a flurry of very enthusiastic messages back and forth we quickly learned just how passionate this woman is about her nutrition – and how much she’s discovered through Cronometer!
How did you learn about Cronometer?
My name is Cynthia Gutierrez and as Latina growing up I struggled a lot with dysfunctional eating habits. I would workout on and off for years and I would never really see any results.
Until recently I started being very cautious about everything I was putting into my body, I found myself on google 3 or 4 times a day reading about the nutrients in the foods we eat everyday. Honestly, my little brother challenged me to go vegan and with this change I was online not only several times a day, but I was also watching videos to get ideas on what in the world I could eat.
It was then when I discovered the cronometer app, from a popular Youtuber, @simnetnutrition, who was explaining all the nutrients and macros of every food down to every ingredient. I have finally learned that the better quality of fuel we give our body the better performance we will see.
What is your favourite feature?
My favorite feature is that it is teaching us exactly what foods are giving us – what nutrients -and not just measuring that we have met our caloric intake limit or not. More importantly, I want to make sure that my body is getting the nutrients it needs even though it may not follow the guidelines that are provided to get to a certain weight goal.
Tell us about your diet!
This app has changed my life because it allows me to focus on my desired destiny, not only physically but mentally and emotionally strong. No limits or guidelines, at my own pace.
