Article summary

In addition to your main diet, energy (calorie or kilojoule), and macro goals, you can also set a variety of detailed health goals to track your progress. Goals are grouped into categories to help you find what you need. Set goals for core items such as weight, sleep, steps, exercise, and water. Premium members can also set goals for body measurements, LDL cholesterol, blood glucose, and more.

Tip: To set goals for dietary cholesterol and more, see Set detailed macro and energy goals. To set goals for micronutrients such as sodium, potassium, and more, see Set goals for micronutrients.
Fasting Tip: When you start a standard or custom fasting program, Carb Manager automatically sets a goal based on your fasting window to help you track your progress over time. For complete details, see Fasting overview.
