Hearing the latest news of MyPlate discontinuing their app, we wanted to let you all know that Cronometer is here for you.
Of course, we want to help all current MyPlate users and welcome them with open arms to our platform, but our hearts also go out to any of the staff members, business owners and investors that may have been impacted by these events. We understand this is a challenging time for everyone that is a part of the MyPlate community and hope that we can help by offering a solid alternative, which fits most people’s nutrition tracking needs.
With over 8 million users worldwide, Cronometer has built a strong reputation in the industry for its unrivaled accuracy and comprehensive nutrition data. We provide an array of customizable options to cater to diverse dietary needs.
We’ve already had a few questions coming into our Customer Service team asking how to accomplish certain tasks that they were accustomed to in MyPlate, so we’re here to provide some guidance and let you know what you can expect while making the switch.
We Share Your Values
For users who have cherished MyPlate, transitioning to Cronometer can be a seamless experience, as we share many fundamental principles:
- We firmly believe in promoting sustainable lifestyle habits, avoiding fad diets, and discouraging extreme weight loss methods or reliance on diet pills and supplements. Like MyPlate, we strive to provide unbiased nutrition information and encourage a balanced approach to health.
Where Cronometer truly excels and offers added value to MyPlate users is in the depth of data we provide. Our platform empowers individuals to reach unprecedented levels of well-being through holistic nutrition tracking. By offering comprehensive and detailed information, we enable users to make informed decisions about their dietary choices, ultimately supporting their journey towards optimal health.
Experiencing a Seamless Switch
Import Your MyPlate Data Into Cronometer
We’ve recently added functionality which allows you to import your MyPlate data into Cronometer. Please note, we’ve received notice that MyPlate will no longer be supporting the user data exports. If you already have access to your data in a JSON format, here’s how to import it into Cronometer:
- Sign up or log in to your Cronometer account on the web version of the app. You will not be able to perform the import process on the mobile version of Cronometer. You will, however, be able to see your imported data on the mobile app once the import has been executed.
- Navigate to Settings > Account > Account Data and click Import Data
- Select MyPlate, click Import and select your JSON file
And you’re off to the races! You’ll now have up to a year’s worth of data that you can start leveraging in Cronometer right away. Try checking your Nutrition Report or Charts to see if you’re on the right track.
Caloric Needs & Weight Goals
Like MyPlate, Cronometer uses your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) to determine an individual’s caloric needs and energy expenditures. This means you can maintain the course you started through MyPlate.
If weight loss is your goal we also have the same cadence options for sustainable and gradual weight loss, meaning you’ll reach your goals in the same amount of time.
One difference you might notice between Cronometer and MyPlate is our macronutrient ratios; as per the Dietary Reference Intakes Cronometer has a macronutrient ratio of 45% carbohydrates, 30% fat and 25% protein. If you’d like to switch these at any time you can easily do this in your Macronutrient Target Settings.
Sync Apps & Devices
Like MyPlate, Cronometer allows you to sync with apps and devices so you can automatically import exercise and biometric data. Connect with Apple Health, Google Fit, Samsung Health, WHOOP, Oura, Garmin, Suunto. Learn how here.
