Once we let you know that we have created your nutrition intake goals (total energy intake and macronutrients) you can start tracking your nutrition. The first step is to download the 'Calorie, Carb & Fat Counter' via Google Play or the App Store links below.
Now you have your Food Diary you can add a food by clicking on the plus sign in the top right.
It opens a screen with all kinds of food products. You can search in the search bar for your product. Once you have found your product, click the product and you can specify how much you have eaten of the product, in this case one banana of 152 grams. You can change the number and weight, and specify for which meal of the day that food applies.
You can see an overview of how many carbs, proteins and fats you eat per day. The food app also syncs with The IVF Project app, when you check your workouts, it will sync with the Food app. Here you also can see how many carbs, proteins or fats a product contains and compare your goals to what you have eaten that day. Click on one of the rounds, and you are getting a summary of your daily goal of protein, and the total amount of eaten that day.
A weekly overview can be found under the menu under 'Performance'. Here you can see the performance of the calories from 1 week, if you click on the 'weekly score' button, you can see how it is with the calories, carbs, protein and fats per week. The app gives you a score on how well you have followed the nutrition plan.
