Ask the Oracle - Remember Categories

I'm only interested in half the food categories under "Ask the Oracle", and because it makes up roughly half of it, neither deselecting all and selecting each category, nor deselecting each category from the default full categories, is efficient.

Would it be possible for the web app to remember my Ask the Oracle favourite food categories? I want to rule out processed foods as suggestions.

Thank you!

  • Hello @Vickie ,

    If you select the categories you would like to use then complete a search, the Oracle should remember these categories for next time.

    Are you finding that all the categories are selected, or are none selected when you go back to Ask the Oracle?

    Best,
    Karen

  • I should have specified that I would like this it to be stored on my profile, not in browser cache or cookies. I often log in from different devices or sometimes in incognito browsers. Ask the Oracle categories are remembered that way.

  • Thanks for clearing that up for me. I will put this in as a feature request.
    Thanks very much for your feedback!

  • It would be great to be able to just select a 'no processed foods' option. This would also be a wonderful feature when searching for foods in general for the diary.

  • Hi @keepthebeet

    Try using the search tabs to narrow down your results. Using the Common Foods tab will limit your results to mostly whole food items. You can expand the search options using the gear icon in the search box. Select the specific category to narrow down your search further - such as Vegetables and Vegetable Products.

  • Meat fish and chicken can contain a lot of water. How do I allow for this when entering my data in the program?

  • Hi Gary1957,

    If you cook your meats then I would recommend adding the cooked version of the meat to your diary, the nutrition information for these foods will take into account the water loss.
