If you add body and health measurements in Carb Manager, you can view and analyze your progress over time. You can also add photos of body measurements to create a visual history of your progress.

All Carb Manager users can add weight measurements. If you have a Premium subscription, you can add a variety of other body and health measurements, including BMI, waist size, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and more.

Tip: Set goals for body and health measurements to help you track your effort over time.
Tip: Carb Manager automatically tracks your progress toward nutrition and macro goals as you log food. To view your progress toward diet goals, see View and analyze progress toward goals.
