  • In your diary, it’s easier to add foods to meals, and based on your feedback we’ve made further improvements to the diary editing tool.
  • Finally, a powerful feature we’ve been refining over the last couple of months: As you add food to your diary, we’ll occasionally show insights about how that food fits with your nutrition goals. These insights help give you a better look at how foods fit into your overall nutrition goals beyond just the calorie count.
