Re: Carbs in espresso?
That's a really great point!
Re: How do you adjust your clothing choices?
I A B S O L U T E L Y A D O R E the wide neck, off shoulder tops and dresses. Cold shoulder as well. Be bold and don the plunging neckline as well. I have a mommy tummy and generally avoid more fitted attire but love an empire, plunging neckline dress that flares out. Blouson styles are our friends as well (ie, rompers, jumpsuits that have the lower, elastic waistline and looks like a loosely tucked in top) Shape wear is a great tool to smoothe out our profile as well.
A wedge sandal or flip-flop or a kitten heel helps to elongate the leg.
Not clothing, buttt, Lipstick. Venture out of your comfort zone and try a new shade of lipstick. It brings the eye upwards.
Most importantly...Learn to love yourself where you are. Even when we lose weight we can see ourselves as we used to look. If I could tell young me one thing, it's love yourself. We are our own worst critic.
How to I get nutritional info for Lion's Mane Mushrooms (not supplements) into my diary?
We're planning on making vegan 'crab' cakes, with Lion's Mane Mushroom as the substitute for crab, but I need the nutritional data on how many calories, sodium, protein, fiber, potassium, phosphorus and so on is in a serving. But when trying to find the info in Cronometer, the suggestions seem to be powders and supplements, instead of the actual Lion's Mane Mushroom for eating. Googling the closest I get to such information are these two websites: https://cascadiamushrooms.com/blogs/cm/the-lion-s-mane-mushroom-nutrition-profile-and-other-benefits and http://www.eattheweeds.com/lions-mane/ but I need Cronometer to actually have it in the system for repeated use. Can Cronometer please provide that information so I can have it in my diary?
Cronometer featuring Gabrielle Lyon
Ironically enough Cronometer is highly recommended in the plant based and vegan community because of it's accuracy in nutritional values and with it being able to track deficiëncies within the diet. Many very health aware plant based people use this to track if their nutritional profile is optimal because we are bombarded by media claiming it is not suffeciënt in all compounds we need. Where supported by goverments all over the world is it shown to be an adequate diet and the health aware part of this population has the lowest average deficiëncies on any diet. Hench their attraction to this forum.
My supprise when I was just looking at @Plantchompers on youtube mentioning a very pro meat advocate Gabrielle Lyon.. to log-in to my cronometer and see you featuring her on this platform.
Now this feels like a major disconnect to me and it might put alot of your daily users off from the plantform (already seen posts about this within the communities) because suddenly your neutral normative value feels comprimised with a heavy pro animal protein insentive.
To balance it out I would reques Cronometer also takes someone from the other side of the spectrum like Dr. Klaper, Dr. Barnard, Dr. Greger or any to review the same information from their point of view to make sure it is adressed form both sides of the spectrum. Even better would be to have Colin Cambell on here because he has a pretty good take on protein sources from his last book.
I would highly advice to consider this Cronometer because you did yourself no favour in this part of your userbase by not checking the extreme obvious bias your featured interview has. Also the you should really add fact checking into references from the interview before posting it. Because alot of references from the interview were wonky at best. Not a good look from being an evidence based source of nutritional information.
Re: Why do people still use MyFitnessPal?
The main reason I still turn to MFP is because of the community, it's nice to connect with people and message them while going through your journey. It can be hard to do it alone.
Request to add extra timestamp for the beginning and end of eating for disabled accessibility
So I love the time stamp so you know when you ate something, but I am disabled and use a feeding tube. Tube feeds take multiple hours, and I want to track my nutrition but it only allows me to add the beginning time. That's a struggle for me since I run feeds overnight and I get unsure of how I should organize it. I'm trying to just add notes as kinda a slight fix, but it would be extremely helpful having a start and end time for.
In a perfect world I would love the app to incorporate a section for tube feeding where you can add the start and end times, the rate (the speed) of the feed, and since you entered how much formula you are having + the rate + the start and end time of the feed, the calories can be split correctly into each day if the feed started at night and ends in the morning. I know that's probably a lot to create, but it would be so helpful to me and many other people with feeding tubes tracking their nutrition with this app. I got the pro version so I can track as much as possible, and if this ever became a feature I would never stop using this app.
I don’t know who I should email or something to share this idea and ask if it could be created, and I see a lot of posts on this forum are old, so if anyone has advice on how to get my request seen by the right person I am very grateful for any responses and help to get this noticed
Re: Unlock Full Access to the NCCDB's Food Components
It would be great to have betaine, soluble/insoluble fiber, EPA/DHA and phytates available for tracking.
You can also create a workaround for this by allowing us to add custom nutrients to our targets and to our custom foods
Re: What integration would you like to see next?
I would love a Zapier integration to be used with the Pro level accounts so we can pull data in from Cronometer to other places.
Uneaten calories for another day!
I know that I can look at my weekly target and get a sense of calories that were not consumed over the course of seven days. But, it would be nice to be able to have a function that could be toggled on/off that would "roll-over" extra calories to the following day during a set period (like a week) for those who would like the satisfaction of eating less one day to splurge on another.
Show Personal Nutrient Targets In Food Search and Custom Recipes Tabs
It will be convenient if Personal Nutrient Targets can be shown in the Food Search and Custom Recipes tabs. Something similar to what is shown in the Diary.
So that when doing food research or creating a custom recipe, a person can see how it affects personal nutrient targets. Currently, I achieve this by additions & deletions in the Diary. For instance, if I want to tweak a custom recipe, I have to ...make edits, save, add to diary to see effects, if it doesn't meet my needs...back to edit, save, diary...and so on.
