Our Favourite Tricks For Cronometer Gold

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 for users on our premium subscription, Cronometer Gold!

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. 

Pro TipS

Click on the green + symbol beside the Diary Group for the quick add menu. You can customize which options show for each Diary Group in More > Diary Settings > Quick Add Group Preferences. 

Swipe right to access more functionality like 'create recipe from diary group' or 'copy yesterday's group' if you ate the same thing for lunch the previous day. 

2. Keep An Eye On Your Nutrition Scores

Tip number two for Gold users, it’s time to take a look at your 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 under More > Targets > Nutrition Scores on mobile and More > Display on web.

3. Schedule Items On Repeat

Being a Gold subscriber has many perks, but this top notch tip might be the best time saver! With our Repeat Item feature, you can schedule your foods, meals and recipes to repeat and add them to your Diary in just one tap. 

Swipe right and tap ⋮ on mobile or right-click on web on any food, meal or recipe entry in your diary and select ‘Repeat’ to set up a recurring food.

4. Leverage Custom Biometrics & Custom Charts

We do have a very wide array of biometrics you can choose from in the basic database but as 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 affects your energy levels? Create a Custom Biometric for stress, energy and hunger to start keeping track! 

Pro Tip

Using Custom Charts, you can plot your Custom Biometrics against each other or against any nutrient or Nutrition Score to identify a correlation. Navigate to Discover > Charts and click the ⋮ on mobile, or Trends > Charts on web and select 'Manage Charts'. There, you can set up any charts you'd like to see, but here's some inspo if you don't know where to start. 

5. 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 its magic. The Recipe Importer automatically finds all of the ingredients, their measurements and creates your own Custom Recipe. 

6. 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! 

7. Create Meal Or Recipe From Selection

Another little known trick for Gold users is the ‘create meal/recipe from selection’ functionality. From your diary screen, click the three dot menu, select ‘multi-select’, select all of the ingredients you want in your Custom Meal or Custom Recipe, click the three dot menu again and select ‘create meal/recipe from selection’.
