Create an Account
We don't require an account to use the app. However, unless you create an account, you're at risk of losing your data if you lose your device. In addition, an account is required in order to sync between devices or to use the web version.
We strongly encourage creating an account. For more information, please see our article on creating a carb manager account to avoid data loss.
Successfully following a new diet or lifestyle means creating new habits. In the beginning, the best way to create new habits is to rely on reminders! Carb Manager lets you set reminders for logging meals, snacks, supplements, and exercise. If you'd like to learn more, please see our knowledge base article on configuring reminders for your account.
Create a list of favorite foods
Most people don't eat a different meal every single day of the year. You likely have your "go to" foods and meals. Creating a list of favorite foods/meals makes food logging fast and simple. Please see our knowledge base article for quick tips on creating favorite foods.
Choose between a pie chart and a progress wheel for your goals
This is a personal preference, but it's important to choose the setting that seems the most intuitive to you. If you're mainly interested in just tracking carbs, choose the pie chart. If you're tracking each individual macro to precisely optimize your diet, choose the progress wheel. Please visit our knowledge base for more information on setting up a pie chart or a progress wheel to monitor goals.
