Hi Friends, I have great news for you!
After several months in development and beta testing, a new update of KetoDiet & KetoDiet Basic for iOS (iPhone/ iPad) has been released. Make sure you have the latest version by launching App Store and switching to the Updates tab.
Although this is an iOS only update, we’ve been working on Android and will release an update in the next few weeks.
New tracking features
Your daily view is now expanded into different tabs where you can track your meals, water intake, body stats, readings and more. We have improved the Planner overview to give you a summary of your planned days at a glance.
Daily notes, mood & energy levels
- Ketone levels (breath, blood and urine)
- Blood glucose levels (fasting and postprandial)
- Blood lipids (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglycerides)
Daily water intake
The ingredient list has been changed to display net carbs ‘per amount’ (i.e. as defined) rather than the normalised ‘per 100 grams’ value. Displaying the normalised value has caused some confusion amongst users so we decided to change it.
Additionally, when viewing the nutritional data of an ingredient, you can now change the reference amount. In other words, you can quickly switch between 1 cup, 100 grams, 1 tbsp etc.
Adding multiple ingredients to the Planner
When adding a single ingredient to your day (Quick Meal or scanning the barcode) you’ll be asked if you want to repeat and add another one. This reduces the number of steps required to add multiple ingredients to your day. Using single ingredients rather than meals is a pattern we often see and many users prefer to do that.
Improved progress charts
Every chart now includes a legend that offers a direct way to edit or add new data points directly from Progress. This of course applies to data items that you can input directly and not data that is calculated, i.e. net carb limit, body stats, readings, mood, energy and water.
New how-to guide
Based on several requests, we created a new online guide on how to use the KetoDiet app. You can find it under Help > How to use KetoDiet. This guide will be updated as new features are added. Although it is focused on iOS, most of it also applies to Android as well.
New unit settings
With new tracking features for ketone, blood glucose and lipids, we have expanded our settings to provide a wider selection of measurement units. Additionally, you can now change units directly from Progress and from any keyboard that allows you to enter data in multiple units.
Improved date picker (calendar view)
We re-designed our date picker (calendar) to make it easier to select dates and date ranges. We now highlight days that have data including meals, body stats, etc.
