Just want to introduce myself. I am Wanda from North Carolina. Just switched to chronometer because a group I am in on Facebook is using it. There is always a learning curve. Hope to learn more.


  • Hello, I am Tony and i love nutrition and computing. If you are a vegan or want to know about veganism, please say hi. :)

  • Greetings, Cronometer was recommended by a Facebook group that I am a member. I have been using another app, and looking forward to using Cronometer. I am hoping to learn from others about veganism, nutrition, fitness and much more.

  • This is my second attempt to lose 15 pounds with cronometer and this time I am really determined! I am also doing a "dry" January, so wish me luck! I am on day 5 of my journey!

  • I don't need to lose weight, but i do need to keep an eye on nutrition.

  • I don’t understand how to read the “consumed” data. It lists a number for protein, carbs, and fat and then %. It lists 133 / 17% for protein, 387 for carbs, and 244 for fat. What do these numbers mean? Thank you

    The calories consumed shown here show you how many calories come from each of the macronutrients. In this example, I have 52.1 kcal from protein so far.

    The percentage shows the relative amount of energy I have gotten from protein. I have had 193.8 kcal total so far today.

    52.1 kcal protein/ 193.8 kcal total * 100% = 27%

    So 27% of my calories have come from protein.

    I hope that is more clear! Let me know if you have any questions.

  • my Doctor was suggesting that my daily diet consist of 160 - 200 carbohydrates. How do I track the amount of carbohydrates I eat in a day? I’m new at this so thanks for your understanding.

  • is this saying naan has 15.1 G protein and 72.8 g carb? Thank you

  • @Soybeansaregreat

    In your diary, you can see the amount of "carbs" you've consumed by clicking on it. You can also set a custom target to reflect what your MD has suggested.

    The information you shared in your last post shows that your naan bread is providing 15.1 grams of protein. You're seeing "net carbs", which is essentially total grams of carbs less fibre. Net carbs can be valuable to track (instead of total carbs) since fibre is beneficial to the body and adds fewer calories than other types of carbs.

    You can read more about net carbs here:
