How to track extra nutrients

Emma Brown | 11 Jan, 2017

Many of us check food labels to try to eat a healthy diet - but it's not always easy to know how we're doing.

To give you greater insight into your diet, we track 5 more nutrients - carbs, sugar, protein, saturated fat and salt - as well as calories and fat.

3 easy steps to track more in your food diary

On the website...

Get the big picture with all 7 nutrients showing in your food diary.

  1. Go to 'Settings' and tick what you'd like to track.
  2. Choose how columns are ordered in your diary by dragging and dropping. Then apply your changes.
  3. Your diary now shows all of your chosen nutrients. Check your daily progress in the summary chart on the right.

In the App...

The App also tracks all 7 nutrients - but you can only choose one extra nutrient to track on your diary. Tap the icon top right, then use the scroller to choose.

We hope this extra information is helpful. But remember, if you're trying to lose weight, it still all comes down to calories - so make sure you’re sticking to your target!
