Posted on 16 October 2015 07:42 PM

Some users may choose to only track calories versus tracking calories plus the other macronutrients (carbohydrates, fats and protein). If this applies to you can log your calories by selecting the 'Quick Log Calories' option instead of searching for a food item by name or barcode.

Macronutrients are defined as nutrients that serve as a primary source of energy, these are generally eaten in large quantities hence the prefix 'Macro'. These macronutrients are essential for normal growth, metabolism and other bodily functions. You may have noticed that each of the primary macronutrients is listed on the nutritional labels of most foods.
