Keep An Eye On Your Ketogenic Nutrition Score

By upgrading to Gold, you’ll have access to our Nutrition Scores feature, which includes a Ketogenic score.

This gives you an overall percentage for how well you’re:

  • Hitting your targets for total fat
  • Staying under your limit for net carbs
  • Achieving your protein target without going over your maximum threshold
  • Eating at least 4000 mg sodium
  • Meeting your targets for potassium, magnesium, water and fiber.

Dial In With Accurate Entries

If you’re looking for real results, accuracy is your friend and that’s where Cronometer shines the brightest!

As much as possible, try to enter food from our NCCDB or USDA databases, which have the best and most comprehensive nutrient profiles. This will ensure you’re getting realistic and accurate values for net carbs, fats and protein on your Nutrition Report.

If possible, we also recommend using a food scale to get down to the nitty gritty and to be 100% confident in your data.

If accuracy is your priority, here are more ways to get the best data.
