Time Stamps tennistodd — Oct 07, 2017 09:53AM PDT
I religiously time stamp all of my meals. However, I can't find anywhere on the app or website where I can analyze this data, so I'm not sure if my efforts are really "worth it". I try to consume, on average, 150 calories per waking hour, but obviously some hours are going to demand a higher calorie intake than others. I'd like to be able to analyze this data using the app; is that possible?

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. This no report to compile or analyze time stamp data at this time. Right now this feature is not available to all Premium members/available on all platforms. Until this feature is completely rolled out to our members, we will not be adding additional options to expand it.
I will make sure to pass along your feedback that you would like to see this available. I would be interest to know what data points you would be interested in regarding your time stamps. What kind of information are you hoping to find out?

Thanks for the reply. I would like to know:
- How many calories I consumed, on average per hour, between time stamps. That would help me to space out snacks and meals, so I don't consume new calories, before the last meal's calories were used by my body.
- I would like some sort of function that would allow me to compare the average hourly calorie consumption with the average activity rate (I use the Fit Bit step counter to sync with your app). That would allow me to adjust my calorie consumption with my exercise energy needs. I know that I am supposed to consume more calories before and after intense exercise (like lifting or tennis), but it's a bit of a guessing game.
I hope that all makes sense, and isn't too complicated for you to consider.

Thanks for the insight, tennistodd. Everything you said did make sense; I understand the info you’re looking to understand. When we’re thinking about expanding features, it’s always really helpful to have an understanding of how our members would use the features, so that we can make sure that they are things that our members will find useful. I will make sure to pass this along to the appropriate team.
We wish you the best of luck in meeting and maintaining all your fitness goals!
