Add a meal

  1. Take an image of a fresh / cooked meal or food item, which is not packaged and ideally is placed on a plate. (Barcode scanning is currently not supported since you can easily find the nutrition values on the packaging).
  2. Click on the camera icon on the bottom of the screen to add a meal by recording an image or the + button to add a meal without an image.

Specify a meal

A meal can be made up of different meal components. Each of them can be specified in detail. For each meal component:

  1. The algorithm makes suggestions on the type of food.
  2. When there is no matching suggestion you can “Load more” and you will get additional suggestions.
  3. In case still none of the suggestions matches you can click “Search” to search the entire database

The food recognition gets better with every image. When you upload the same type of food multiple times, it should start to recognize it.

  1. When using the 3D analysis, the weight gets calculated using the 3D camera, which is available in newer iPhones. When the 3D Analysis is not active, the portions are based on standard portion sizes and might need to be adjusted to fit your specific meal. If needed, the portion can be adjusted by clicking on the “pencil” icon.
