At Nutrisense, we understand that tracking your nutrition can sometimes feel overwhelming. That's why we've made it easy to add meals to your food diary. Whether you want to quickly snap a picture or add a detailed breakdown of your macronutrients, we've got you covered.
Adding Meal Ingredients
To accurately track the macronutrient composition of your meals, you'll need to add ingredients. No worries, we've made this process simple! Our app automatically suggests ingredients based on the photo or description of your meal. But if you prefer to manually add ingredients, you can easily search our food database and select the appropriate option.
To add ingredients to a new meal:
1. Tap the green “+” button
2. Select “Meal”
3. From there, you can choose to scan the barcode, add a photo, add a description, or search for ingredients. All fields are optional, so feel free to add as much or as little information as you like. And don't forget, if you've added a photo or description of your meal, our app will automatically suggest ingredients to make the process even easier.
Macro Summary and Goal Settings
We know that tracking your nutrition goals is important to you. That's why we've made it simple to view your macro summary right on your dashboard. You can see a nutrition card that details the macronutrient totals for the currently selected date and how they relate to your daily goals. To set your daily macro goals, simply navigate to the User Settings and select Daily Macro Goals. And if you ever need to hide the nutrition card on your dashboard, you can do so in the dashboard settings.
At Nutrisense, we want to make it easy for you to eat the meals you love. That's why we've added the meal favorites feature. When you favorite a meal, the ingredients for that meal will be automatically added to any new meal you create using that saved favorite. To save a meal as a favorite, simply click on the meal card and hit "save to favorites" or save it as a favorite as you create the new meal.
If you can't find the ingredient you're looking for in our database or notice that the information is incorrect, don't worry. You can easily add a custom ingredient or make tweaks to an existing one. Simply navigate to the Ingredients tab in the main menu and click the "Add" button. From there, you can fill in the name and serving size and add the remaining macronutrient data. You can also search our database for an existing item and make any necessary tweaks.
We hope these tips make tracking your nutrition with Nutrisense even easier!
