We’ve made a lot of changes within the app recently, some of which you have been asking for for a while (we listen, we promise!).
Check out what’s new:
We wanted to include all sources of energy burned – including the energy it takes to digest your food. This is called the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). It takes energy to make energy! Depending on how much protein, carbs, fats and alcohol you have consumed, this will add a small amount to the total energy you burn in a day.
If this is something you want to include you can now select this option to include an estimate by ticking the box next to Thermic Effect of Food!
Remove Energy From Energy Target
Sticking to a strict calorie goal but still want to track your exercise? Remove exercise from your energy target in your energy burned settings.
We’ve made one small, meaningful, change in how we track carbohydrates and that comes in the tracking of Allulose and Fructose. You now have the option to exclude either from your net carbohydrates which can prove helpful for ketogenic dieters, or individuals with diabetes, pre-diabetes or metabolic syndrome.
But, what is Allulose? Allulose is a type of sugar with 70% of the sweetness of white sugar and only .2kcal/gram it’s often used as a low energy (read: low calorie) sugar substitute!
We’re all about making steady progress toward your goals! Making changes to your weight can be a bumpy road with lots of twists and turns. Now you can choose smaller increments for your rate of weight gain or loss to make smaller, more manageable steps to help you stay on track. So, we’ve expanded to include a rate of weight gain or loss increments of 0.2 pounds/week.

If you’ve ever played around with the profile settings so much that you don’t know what is left and what is right and all you know is that you want your settings back to how they were before… breathe!
We have added the ability to Reset Defaults and even better than that we have added this to each section of the profile so you have the ultimate control over which areas you are restoring to original settings!
You can now track in Kilojoules!
The heading says it all – users who prefer to track with kilojoules as opposed to kcals (calories) can now rejoice with the introduction of kilojoules tracking!
