Net Carbs happygirl1221 — Nov 13, 2017 05:11AM PST

Where is adding net carbs in your app's backlog (assuming you're agile)? Your app has so many good features - why aren't you prioritizing this? Competing apps that have far less features include a way to track by the eating plan you're using (i.e. net carbs, low fat, etc.). At a minimum, it should be a feature for premium users, which would generate the income required to pay for the additional features.

Hello,

At this time, there is not a way to keep track of net carbs within our program. We will definitely consider adding this feature for a future update. For now, you should be able to track your daily total carbs and fiber. You can then keep track of your net carbs (total carbs – fiber) via the “notes” section.

To record a note in our iPhone app, scroll to the bottom of the “Diary” page and tap “Notes.” In our other mobile apps, on the page that appears after you click the Add to Diary button (with the meal names listed), scroll down and you’ll see a row labeled “Food Notes”. Tap on it, and you can record whatever notes you’d like. Those notes will then appear in your diary.

Food notes are available on our website at the bottom of the food diary page.

To view all your nutrient totals for the day, including carbs, just go to the main menu or “More” page, and then to the nutrient or nutritional section. In that area you can view a daily or weekly option, as well as small buttons in the highlighted area to view your nutrients in different ways.

Our Premium service also offers the ability to change the information being displayed in your dashboard, at the top of the Home screen. One of the options is our “Low Carb” preset, which displays your Carbohydrates, Fiber, and Sugar, along with your Calories Remaining. You would then simply have to view the Home screen to be able to quickly calculate your Net Carbs, by subtracting your Fiber from your total Carbs.

Also if you like, you can set your own nutritional goals for carbs, calories, fat, and any other nutrient that we track. For details on customizing your nutritional goals, please see these instructions.

All the best,
Bruce
