Muscle-Building Workout and Diet

Hey, it’s Mic here, and I talked about a lot, how it’s a great nutrition tool to track food and learn about what’s in what food, but as many of you have pointed out, I’ve never actually shown you guys how to use it. So today, we are going to do a walkthrough, so a more practical video today. Now for some people, cronometer can be the difference between failing on a vegan diet and not because it combats one of the main reasons that vegans fail, which is that transition from calorically dense foods that are animal-based down to those water-rich, fiber-rich, lower calorie plant foods, and then they go hungry and are like screw this, or they think they instantly got a deficiency… No. So if anything cronometer can be a tool to ease irrational fears of deficiency on a vegan diet. And a bit of housekeeping, remember I am NOT a nutritionist, so some of the settings I’m about to show you are based off my choice to follow certain nutrition authorities. You can make your own choice as to who to follow, and of course, if you want, you can always find a plant-based nutritionist. Alright, so just go to, it is free on a computer, but I believe it is not free on a mobile device. So you just type in your email and password, then you go ahead and type in your personal information. Let’s say the average female, 5’2, maybe 140 pounds, I don’t know what the average is now. OK, now you need to validate your account. Alright, before we look at how to actually add food and things like that, I want to look at the Profile tab and see some of the options you have here. The default is that you’re getting emails, no spam, but I don’t need emails at all, and then they have a reminder email, which can be very useful. Let’s say it’s 1 p.m, and you want to get an email then because you might have forgotten to log your lunch, so that’s pretty cool. And over here, we have our body details. This is important because you got your basal metabolic rate, which is how much you burn at rest, but then you have your activity level which can drastically change how many calories. If you’re lightly active vs. very active, that’s 259 vs. 1,166 cal, moderately active, 650 cal. So let’s assume you’re moderately active and then make sure you get all these details right because, for example, shifting from a 5’2 female to like a 6′ male, that’s you know, 170 pounds, massively changes the amount of calories required. Another very interesting thing is the nutritional targets over here. A lot of these are going off recommendations by particular authorities, and authorities vary, so it’s interesting to see what they suggest here as a default. I wouldn’t suggest changing too much here, but there are some interesting things you can do, like in the beginning, iodine is not visible, it’s cool to show that, however, if nobody entered how much iodine was in a food, it will not say there is any. But looking at lipids, there’s sort of an interesting thing going on here where it’s recommending you to eat a 1:10 ratio of omega-3 to omega-6. And we know that 1:2 or 1:4 is better, but in order to reach that with a minimum of 17 for a guy, you have to be eating way over sort of the recommended limit of omega-3. So this is a very complicated subject, which deserves a whole nother video, but for now, this is totally up to you and what authority you want to follow, I definitely pop this up to at least to as many vegan nutritionists recommend. And finally, I think it’s pretty funny under macronutrient targets, which is, you know, what percent of your total calories you’re are getting from carbs and protein and fat, they still have low fat raw vegan, which is 80:10:10. I’m personally not shooting for any macronutrient ratio in particular, just eating whole foods is my main goal. Now let’s check out some foods, so adding a food is pretty easy, you just type Add Food here. Let’s say we want to eat some black beans, canned, drained, let’s say you’re eating a cup of black beans, 240 cal and looking down at nutritional target, that’s already 50% of your daily need of fiber, quite a bit of iron, things like that. Protein, even you can see a pretty even spread of protein if you’re concerned about that. All right, so let’s add some more foods and get an idea of what a whole meal might look like. Let’s say you’re doing rice and beans. This is steamed, not dry, always pay attention to stuff like that. Here’s steamed vs. dry, and let’s say you’re gonna have a cup of that. Let’s say you’re gonna eat some, I don’t know, chard or something, or kale, whatever you want. A cup of that, maybe we can add some, who knows, maybe you’re roasting some almonds. Damn it, roasted right here. You know, somebody can choose individual almond, which is pretty goofy. FDA serving size, let’s say you’re doing half of that. And maybe some broccoli, why not? Some cooked from fresh broccoli, a cup of that. So now we have what looks somewhat like a meal, you know, 670 cal. We’ve got a pretty decent spread here. These are our general nutritional targets like fiber. Keep in mind if you’re going over this, you’re not going over your daily recommended maximum, you’re just going over the minimum. I’ve seen people get afraid of that. Iron doing pretty good. Calcium, maybe could add some collard greens or something to get some more. So everything is broken down into categories here. Your general. Your vitamins, which is fun to look at, getting a lot of vitamin C. You’ve got your carbs, fats. So you can see that omega-3 to omega-6 ratio here. You’ve got your minerals: calcium, copper, iodine, I see no iodine. We know for a fact that there is iodine, some iodine in these foods, so this is not a great representation, but sometimes you can get an idea. And going down to protein. We can see where, you know, with one meal we have surpassed over half of our protein requirement, all the amino acids that we need. This brings me to the main challenge of cronometer, which is actually inputting the right amounts of food accurately representing what you’re actually eating, and my method for that is simply using a measuring cup to scoop food, so you can get an idea of how much you’re actually eating that way. And you can, of course, go and get a scale and weight your food which is more accurate, but I’ve never felt a need to go that far. Now let’s go up and look at some more foods because what I would consider the most effective thing about cronometer is that you can get an idea of how many calories you’re actually eating, and people just don’t pay attention to that very much. And so let’s say you have some romaine lettuce. Let’s say you have 5 cup, 10 cup of romaine, why not? 10 cup, you’re going crazy. 80 cal right here, come on 80 cal. That is ridiculous. I also notice that I did not have the macronutrient showing, so show full macronutrient breakdown should give me a macronutrient breakdown of each food, which is very interesting to see. So carbs, mostly carbs. So let’s compare that to some olive oil, you know, even just, even just 2 tsp. That’s teaspoon, a tablespoon. 1 tbsp has more calories than 10 cup of lettuce, so that shows you how refined foods can be crazy? But you also want to make sure you’re getting enough calories from whole foods, so I think it’s fun to type in various plant foods and see how much, you know, how much protein they actually have. A cup and a half would be a pretty standard amount. Lentils, you’re told that these plants don’t have complete protein. These are the essential amino acids. Let’s check out another one. Let’s say you want to eat some pinto beans or something. Don’t eat pinto chips. Pinto beans, cooked from dry, a cup and a half. You know, this is pretty good spread right here, like the idea, the idea that you’re not gonna get enough amino acids if you’re even eating legumes in any reasonable amount is pretty ridiculous. So a really important thing that you might start to realize is that vegetables don’t really have that many calories. You eat, you know, 2 cup, 3 cup, let’s say you’re eating 4 cup of these veggies, that’s 100 cal. That’s basically how many calories are in an apple, right? We got 94 cal in a medium apple. And just so you know, you can always click on a single food here that you’ve typed in and get the particular breakdown of that food, or click on the top, and you will go back to all of the foods add it together. And another thing I’ve noticed if people are like: “Oh, I just can’t get enough omega-6s on a whole food vegan diet, I have to eat oil.” No, I mean just look at some walnuts here. Let’s say you just have a serving size of walnuts. Add serving. Look at that you are already at 11 g of omega-6s. And you’d be amazed with what you can accomplish with just a bowl of oatmeal, it’s pretty impressive. Let’s say you’re going to steel cut your hardcore whole food, and now I eat almost a cup dry, I eat like 0.8 cup dry. Then I go ahead, and I always add an apple. And some blueberries, about a half cup of frozen blueberries. If I remember to throw the ground flax in. And cinnamon, why not? So you get an idea, you’re starting to meet a lot of targets already. 83% of iron, pretty impressive. All that fiber, probably more fiber than the average person eats in a day. You’ve got pretty good on your zinc already, which I would say, is one of those things you want to keep an eye on. Protein, look at that spread of protein. You know, people assume that all these plant foods are just devoid of protein. Nope! Now one thing I did really quickly, I actually changed the source of ground flax because that original one was wrong, this one was correct right there, 2 tbsp is 2 g. And then another feature you can add exercise which I have never really done. Let’s say you’re doing some vigorous bodybuilding for an hour, which would be 60 minutes, 404 cal bam, so mine is 404. Want to get some calcium, you can see that collards, for example, let’s see some cooked collards, if you eat a cup of cooked collards, you were looking at 267 mg of calcium. Well something like a cup of chard, which is very similar, might only have 100 mg. Things like that are good to know, it’s good to know the sources of foods. We grow up associating cow’s milk with calcium, but it’s good to replace those ideas of what foods have what nutrients by actually getting an intuitive look. Now I didn’t mention the calcium requirements on the Profile tab when I was there, which gives me the opportunity to talk about how you can actually change requirements from here, which is easier. Calcium, as you see, the requirement is pretty high. I would suggest choosing an authority or talking to a nutritionist to determine exactly what amount of calcium you want to eat. But looking at studies like this one, it’s clear that calcium requirements are sometimes too high, also that the amount of animal protein that you eat increases your urinary calcium, and therefore, your calcium requirements as well as the sodium that you eat. So according to this study, somebody who doesn’t eat a lot of sodium and doesn’t eat very much animal protein could only require 400 mg per day. There’s no reason to go quite that low, so if you feel like this is ridiculously high, I believe the EU says 800 mg, as well as some other authorities, a lot say 1,000 though, so choose your own authority, don’t just go with what I’m going with or talk to a nutritionist about it. But this topic deserves a whole video because there are other things that play here like the dairy lobby, as well as studies done on people with severe atherosclerosis, limiting the blood supply to their bones. So while we see studies where people aren’t losing any bone mass at around 500 mg, and the average around the world is like 400-500 mg a day without a lot of cases of osteoporosis, so this is a very complicated topic. Now that we are talking about something that counts calories, I think it’s important to at least bring up the obsessive eating aspect. Sometimes when I mention cronometer, and how it’s a calorie tracker and nutrient tracker, I can see people just shudder who have maybe had like an eating disorder history or afraid of getting too obsessive about eating. And I’m not an expert on eating disorders or anything like that, but I feel like just doing a couple of days is great. And if you don’t even want to do a couple days, just looking at a few foods, and getting an idea of what’s actually in them, can’t hurt. And if tracking calories really isn’t the thing for you, then you can always download my food journal on, which just sort of pushes you in the direction of eating whole foods, and it doesn’t focus on the calorie content. Alright, so let me know down below, if you are a cronometer veteran that has any awesome tips that you can share, or if you know of another nutrient tracker that might be better, maybe one that’s better for mobile and free for mobile. All right, thank you so much for watching. Feel free to like and subscribe, and I will see you in the next video.

100 thoughts on “Cronometer: The Key to Vegan Success? How to Use It.

  1. Where can I find that diagram that you briefly showed in this video with the nutrients found in each whole food? It looked cartoon like

  2. I'm actually a big fan of this. I do find it is not as accurate as I would like it to be.. It is also time consuming. However, it is a great guide I was able to see my selenium defiency and the fact that I consume way to many calories in one day. I also realize that me this washed up athlete is not active in anyway. It's very positive and useful. Thanks for posting a user friendly version of cronometer. I know how to make iodine visible.

  3. Oh lol I've typed in my typical "good to okay" day, with the majority being whole foods and some guilty pleasures thrown in and i've pretty much maxed every nutrient out, even the biased calcium requirements, pfftt… Feels like winning in this RPG called "life" ;D. But now I wonder how on earth I have that 500 kcal surplus and maintain my weight. Maybe bc my diet is 69% carbs and you cannot type in intense intellectual activity or having high NEAT(being an energetic person unable to sit still for long), but yeah it lands me at about 3k per day which is wild for sb who weights 54kg and and has 168cm height. I wish though I could get that magic 80% carbs number but eh seems a bit too tricky.

  4. As someone who had had anorexia for a long time and used to eat a maximum of 300 calories a day (I know, very wild), when I started using a somewhat similar app, I started going very obsessive about the numbers. I decided that it's best for me to stop what I had been doing, and instead I have a paper on my fridge with different nutrients and minerals and where to get them from. That way I make sure to eat at least one food from each mineral/nutrient every day. I think that's the best way for those who suffered from ED. I'm a first year nutrition student, and I think that counting calories will not take you anywhere other than obsession, instead counting minerals/nutrients is the best way to go. That way on a plant-based diet, you make sure to get what you need on a daily basis, and your food is complete!

  5. Would you ever consider doing a video on what meals you eat in a day or what meals are good to make? And how much it costs/ where to buy get certain things. I'm very bad and sticking for a variety of meals but want to shift from more processed foods I'm sure other ppl wud find it helpful too!

  6. I posted this to New Vegan Support on FB…..I just starting using the free version. Being lured into upgrading to the Gold Edition….is it worth it? Seems like it'd be, would like to develop recipes so I don't have to individually select ea time….previously used My Fitness Pal, didn't have miconutients but did have a feature if to click and scan….also, recipes were in the free version..

  7. Ugh but it's so slow to load foods…

    I switched back to myfitnesspal but every few days I log what I ate on crono to see if I'm meeting my vitamin and mineral goals.

    It's free for me on mobile. Android.

  8. I love using Cronometer! I have been eating plant based for a month and trying to build muscle. This has helped me make sure I’m getting enough calories and protein. I like that it points out so clearly where your micro nutrients may be lacking. My favorite is the recipe feature. I can enter my food combos that I eat all the time to make it easier. Or if I make a big, from scratch recipe (a soup or chili or something), I can add all the ingredients and make up my own serving sizes for that dish and Cronometer does the math!

  9. Cronometer is awesome. The only way I can think they could improve it would be to add a carbon footprint calculation as well

  10. Pretty interesting the study about calcium, by the way, it claims that we need 4x the Ca our boby loses, for example 200 mg a day for a loss of only 40 mg – that, for instance, it is quite easy to lose in a standard western diet, given that we basically lose one gram of Ca per gram of animal protein and even 15 grams per gram of sodium (salt) ingested…pretty impressive…

  11. Thanks for this Great video (i m a newbie). I wonder about vitamin A… it shows crazy high numbers! Please explain… Its worrying me. Great work, Mic!

  12. I used cronometer for two months when I first went vegan and that's the number one thing that made the transition SO easy for me! Since I was making sure I'm taking all the calories/vits/nutriens I needed, I was feeling AMAZING after just 2 or 3 days and that's why after two years as a vegan, I can say I will NEVER EVER go back. I didn't even know that I had so much energy in me, that I could feel SO much better!!! I don't know how the transition would end up, without cronometer, so people need to know about this, and thank you so much for this video 😉

  13. I write for a very small nutrition magazine and after trying discovering Cronometer on this channel I decided to write a short feature about it in this month's issue! Such a great tool for tracking nutrients instead of just calories.

  14. I require 1250 calories to maintain my weight but I'm full all the time and don't get near it. Today I had a 20 oz banana grape and pineapple juice smoothie for breakfast. Lunch was a half of sweet potato with flax seed and cinnamon, 2 pieces of asparagus 1/4 cup of rainbow kale and 1/4 cup spinach all steamed. I ate on this for dinner too and still have leftovers. It's 2:31 am now and I'm still full. I take vitamins cus otherwise, I won't make it.

  15. Tried it once but just didn't get the hang out of it.. Starts with "cup" measurements, which I am not used to at all (and the weight differs depending on the food, right? so a simple translation to grams won't work)..then there are terms I just don't know.. and if I just have something like curry I simply have no idea how much of each ingredient I'm eating..
    Guess I need to spend more time with it…

  16. I've recommended this video to more people than I have ever recommended all of the videos in my life! Bcs it's just so practical!!

  17. Hey, how do you handle your zinc:copper ratio? I notice when I eat whole food vegan I get a lot of copper compared to zinc. Had a 3.8 ratio yesterday. Seems like 8.0 should be the optimal ratio.

  18. I wonder if people in the past had to use target charts or calculations to just eat real food. hum maybe the complicated way to control food intake weight loss or eating enough of one not to much another, is why people don't follow their diets very long or because they get tired of calculating, I mean whatever happened to just eat naturally according to your body's cues/hunger/ cravings? provided your craving healthy stuff? and eating until your full and don't desire to eat anymore? it amazing how our modern day life has complicated things that naturally take care of themselves.

  19. what should i do to get enough calories? When I feel satisfied the cronometer says I ate like 1200 cals during the full day! I’m 170 cm so…

  20. Thank you so much for this. I find cronometer extremely helpful because it helps me make sure that I am eating enough calories, and getting my daily recommened amount of vitamins, lipids, proteins, and so on. Last year, I was vegetarian, and I started documenting my daily calorie intake for health class and on average i got around 800 calories. Some days were 500.
    This wasnt because of me being vegetarian but because i simply wasnt eating nearly enough, i skipped breakfast most days and lunch, and my diet consisted of fries, yogurt, occasional blended sugar coffee drinks, barely any vegetables, but oh heaven forbid, i at least ate an orange almost everyday. Obviously, i started going to the doctors a lot for odd health complications.. once i was sure i had anemia even, but it turned out i had more iron than i needed. I was always tired and could barely do anything. Recently, i went vegan. Its been about a week now? Although a couple of times i ate something i thought was vegan but turned out not to be, anyway, I've started really keeping track of how much i eat and i put what i ate down yesterday on cronometer and i was lacking a lot in a few areas. But im so excited to see how my moods, energy levels, and other things will change once i start eating enough 🙂

  21. The average female is 5’4” – 5’6”. Not sure weight but I’d guess 140-170. But then again… allegedly 1/3 of the US, UK, and Australia are obese to morbidly obese. 🤷‍♀️

  22. cronometer vitamin a is confusing. Online It says im suppose to take 900 mcg is 3,000 iu and i look at other vegan cronometer in there is at 17,000 iu. How much should i get for a 16 year male?

  23. Yes very good Application, but also for meat eaters 🙂 I am on Keto and yes it is free as a basic
    application, it is the only app which can track minerals and vitamins, so very important for vegans 🙂

  24. Chronometer always says I'm way over folate to the point it highlights it in red like that's a problem. I'm at 325% after eating beans, quinoa, broccoli and spinach. Beans and quinoa are my favorite meal and broccoli is my favorite vegetable.

  25. Cronometer is good BUT it has Sooooo many flaws. Example: shows my 600g of potatoes had 1600mg of sodium…

  26. I LOVE Cronometer! I thought I was deficient in some vitamins or minerals because I don’t have a ton of energy. It turns out my levels are great. So it must be just cuz I’m menopausal. 😕. Oh well, still a fantastic app. Thanks for this video!!

  27. I have just tried putting my data into cronometer, and all my amino acids are at 100% or over but the collective protein tab is still only at like 45%. Does anyone know why that is?

  28. I've been watcing your channel rexently, and i like it very much! Respect to you, very helpful videos!
    One question about cronometer- there is whritten that in buckwheat iron is about 2mg, but in russion net, it's said that buckwheat has from 6.7 to 8mg of iron. Where is the truth?

  29. only track macros (not calories) but found useful for nutrients – thanks (discovered I was getting all my daily iron via my 90% chocolate!)

  30. I've been using cronometer for a while now, but I didn't know you could sync your Fitbit to it! This changes the game… I get extra calories for my normal activity! Edit: I should clarify, I use the Android app, which is why I have never seen an option to sync with my Fitbit account.

  31. I've been vegan for over a year now and I kept looking for a website like this, how did I not know this existed!?!?! THANK YOU!

  32. Helpful video! The only downside I see with cron-o-meter is that the software does not account for the digestibility index of plant proteins, and other micronutrient for that matter. Since vegetables usually contain high amounts of fiber, not all the proteins and nutrients in that food will be absorbed in the intestine since the dense matrix of the fiber is not completely digested and lowers the absorption of these nutrients from the plant foods. Meats have zero fiber, so all proteins are generally absorbed. I have heard suggestions to subtract 10% of the overall protein to account for this, while other sources say only 60-70% of proteins and micronutrients are actually absorbed (and to subtract 30-40% of nutrient content found in food), what is your opinion? This seems important considering the risk of micronutrient deficiencies maybe more prevalent in vegetarians and possibly even more so in vegans. It may mean actually increasing caloric intake to account for the loss of nutrient absorption due to fiber. Frequent testing is probably the best method of avoiding deficiencies of course. Thanks!

  33. I love the free app. I believe I use all the functions, create recipes, create food, creating notes, weight gain and loss charting. I kept track of every morsel that went into my mouth and lost 30 pounds. I stopped for several months, gained about five back and now I'm back at it for the last 20 pounds. I was wondering if the "gold" version was significantly better than the free version. I know the history and charting isn't as robust with the free, but I just like to see the weight loss line go down. The nutritional history and data – not so much. It really helped this 70 YO get control of my life. Thanks, Cronometer.

  34. It can be hard to add to add food for some. Like us Indians have pretty complex dishes sometimes where we aren't aware of all ingredients. Some ingredients don't have names in English

  35. (sorry if this seems like a basic question! i'm only 16 and have been vegan for just under a year) On the first meal, it says 438% of minimum Vitamin A?!? I know something like 120 wouldn't be bad, but 438?… can too much of a vitamin be dangerous, and if so then how much is too much?

  36. But for all of this, you have to take a grain of salt. Its important, where you live! I'm living in europe, which is a selenium poor region. So cronometer sure won't be safe even in the USA to hit everything right as you think you do!

  37. Always going for the black beans ;D
    Anyways aside from that, I just discovered your channel and it is absolutely fantastic. Keep it up please, I love watching/listening to you!!

  38. I don't move at all, so I need to pick activity level of "none" :DDD Also you need to eat fortified foods with B12 and Supplement D. Also I eat vegan yogurts, drink cacao with soy milk and my calcium is full already for the day.

  39. I've been using Cronometer for a year, and I really like it. Its most useful feature is that it forces me to be mindful about what I eat. I have even begun to add my food before I eat it. Being mindful, instead of eating mindlessly, is important. Most people eat mindlessly.

  40. But wait, if I exercise 4 days a week and i set that on my activity level, should I still add exercise on the cronometer description?

  41. Thanks for this video, man! I am going into vegan diet and i really needed something like this! Greetings from Brazil!

  42. I struggle to add ingredients because I'm gluten intolerant and have specialist items, which means I have to go to the kitchen and add the nutritional info by hand. Which when I'm sat on the sofa trying to set up recipes on Cronometer is incredibly frustrating. If you have any tips for making that simpler I'd be grateful, thanks.

  43. I love this. However, I intermittent fast daily along with my veganism and have been intermittent fasting for 15 years. Therefore, I'm always a little under my daily recommended calorie intake. My doctor says I'm very healthy. I think that nutrients are more important than counting calories. What do you say?

  44. That's really cool! I always worry that I'm eating way too much. My jeans always fit, but still, that feeling is always there. So that app can't hurt. I'd like to see clearly what I'm actually doing.

  45. I use cronometer for few days now and I am frustrated with some of the results : I am always super high on vitamin A (thanks to a lot of veggies), in fiber, and too low in vitamin E or potassium and the B family (except B12). does this happen to other mostly plant-based diet eater ?

  46. You can call yourself a nutrionist bro. There is so requirement to give yourself that title, like anyone into nutrition can say they are a nutritionist.

  47. Very easy to fill all the lines to maximum with fruits (clementines, oranges, cantaloupes, kiwis, avocados, tomatoes, grapes etc., and fruits seeds (cashews, almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds).

  48. Nutrition ranking tool where you may find products for exact nutrition you might need!

  49. Thank you for introducing me to this app. In spite of eating mountains of food, my weight has been going downward continuously. I tried calculating the energy in the foods I was eating, one-by-one, tediously…ugh! I wouldn't have heard of this at all without your intro. This will help a lot.

  50. My young son has gone vegan (I’m so proud) so chronometer is an excellent way to ensure he is getting everything a growing body needs…. it also gets those freaky meat eaters off my back because they suddenly become nutrition experts when they find out you are vegan….

  51. I don't expect you to actually see this comment…but on the (sorta) plus side of all these youtubers deciding to no longer be vegan, it has forced me to look closer at my diet. I see the holes, and I def need to add a lot more "whole" BEFORE things start going wrong and I feel I have to ditch my principles. Anyhoo, thanks for the awesome guidance!!

  52. I've been putting in all my food for two weeks to see how I fared. Seems I'm coming up a little short on vitamin E and selenium. Now I can work on these!

  53. From Cronometer I found out that I was good on everything except Vitamin E, so I went out and got some sunflower seeds. Realistically though, some products on Cronometer don't have all their micronutrients listed, so you could be getting some nutrients without knowing it.

  54. I'm just starting my 8th week WFPB. This topic was so helpful. Thanks, Mic. You do such an amazing job with your YouTube site. I'm binging it like Netfix!!!

  55. Became a vegan a week ago and use Chronometer to make sure I get enough calories. I think it’s fun and useful for a newbie.

  56. Mic. Tengo una petición. Could you tell us which nutrients we can an can not store?. Many times we register in Cronometer the nutrients above 100%, so we can not worry about reaching 100% the next day ¿? any suggestion on this matter¿?

  57. I’ve been using Cronometer and mostly it’s waaaayyy better than other food counters I’ve used, but I’ve noticed it list trans-fat in a garlic glove? I’m assuming it’s a glitch, has anyone else experienced this? And I couldn’t find a listing for carrot tops, mixed dried herbs, or mixed salad leaves of any kind . . . maybe because it’s a US site/app and I’m in the UK?

  58. One of the things I like about a Whole Foods plant-based diet is that I can eat what I want without counting calories. I eat a large variety of plant foods and try to keep it very unrefined. So I'm unlikely to start measuring everything that I eat.

  59. this fucking helps soo much!!! I mean, I'm pretty fine 5 years vegan with good blood work results, but I want to learn more information about what i eat, and this helps because i always thought this site was confusing so I Didn't want to use it. I love how you're explaining it, so now i can start learning more about my food.
