Free Of Charge Features And Functionality

Our mission here at Cronometer is to empower people to reach their health and wellness goals – whatever those may be. Whether you’re vegan and want to make sure you’re eating an adequate amount of protein, vitamins and minerals or managing your diabetes, we’re here for you.

We strive to accomplish our mission by providing the most accurate and comprehensive health tracking tool available. Part of this also includes giving you, our users, access to your health data along with several features and functionality that aren’t locked behind a paywall. Here’s a list of what comes included in the basic Cronometer account.

Track Food, Accurately

We pride ourselves on being accurate! With a Cronometer account, you have access to our food database which pulls from lab-analyzed sources like the USDA or the NCCDB or are verified by a staff member. Sick of trying to choose between 14 different listings for a chicken breast? So were we, and it won’t happen in Cronometer!

Diary Groups

Elevate your Diary experience by using Diary Groups! Diary Groups make for an organized Diary screen but also make it easy to access time saving features. Swipe right on a Diary Group to get a sub menu of features like copy & paste.


Macro & Micronutrient Details

Your picture of overall health and wellness includes a lot more than calories, proteins, fats and carbs. Yes, of course we give you this info but we also toss in a lot more! Cronometer gives you detailed information on 82 micronutrients as well so you can keep an eye on all the vitamins and minerals essential for living a healthy, energetic life.
