Our Favourite Tricks For Users On Our Gold Subscription
Upgrading to our Gold subscription will provide access to tons of cool extras – but you already know that, don’t you? If you’ve taken the leap and decided to upgrade, here are our top tips and tricks to try with your new found app functionality!
1. Set Up Your Diary Groups
With our Gold subscription, you can now separate your meals into their own sections. The most popular being breakfast, lunch, dinner but we applaud when our users get creative! You have up to eight Diary Groups to use so take advantage and add supplements, exercise, snacks or more. Don’t forget you can also add and edit timestamps for each of your food entries now as well.
2. Keep An Eye On Your Nutrition Scores
As a Gold user, you have access to our Nutrition Scores! These give you a personalized score based on how well you’re hitting certain targets including your vitamin and mineral intake specific for certain functions. Choose to highlight eight of twelve options including bone health, electrolytes, immune support and antioxidants. You can find these in the settings page under ‘targets’ on mobile and ‘display’ on web.
3. Leverage Custom Biometrics & Custom Charts
We do have a very wide array of biometrics you can choose from in the basic database but now that you’re a Gold user, it’s time to think outside the box! Have you ever wondered how your stress levels correlate with your hunger? Or how sugar intake effects your energy levels? Create a Custom Biometric for stress, energy and hunger to start keeping track!
4. Import Your Favourite Recipes In Three Clicks
One of the latest and greatest Gold features to hit Cronometer is the Recipe Importer! You can copy & paste a URL (or manually copy and paste the text from the recipe) and the app will work it’s magic. The Recipe Importer automatically finds all of the ingredients and adds their measurements to create your own Custom Recipe.
5. Schedule Different Macro Targets
The Target Scheduler feature was a long-awaited addition to our app. Thanks to this feature, you can now create different templates for your macro targets and schedule them for different days of the week. Want to aim to eat more protein on the days you’re working out? Schedule it in! Want to give yourself a ‘cheat day’ on Sundays with a bigger calorie allowance? Schedule it in!
6. Create Recipe From Selection
Another feature only available to gold users is the ‘create recipe from selection’ functionality. From your diary screen, click the three dot menu, select ‘multi-select’, select all of the ingredients you want in the recipe, click the three dot menu again and select ‘create recipe from selection’.
