WELCOME TO THE MAIN TRACKING SCREEN
WELCOME TO YOUR DASHBOARD!
Here’s your navigation guide.
1) PROFILE PICTURE
This is how you access your Profile and Settings screens, all your progress charts, meal plans and posts in the Community.
2) VOICE TRACKING (PRO FEATURE)
Easily track your daily meals on the go by using voice tracking. You must allow Healthi microphone permissions in your device settings for this to work.
3) BARCODE SCANNER
Use this option to scan your favorite food items. Align the barcode in the center of the grid and hold as steady as you can. You must allow Healthi camera permissions on your device for this to work.
The scanner relies on several criteria to work properly.
Phone Permission - you have to be sure that the phone is set to allow Healthi to use your camera. If this is not set up correctly - the scanner will not work at all.
Enough Light - make sure the barcode is not in a dark shadow or turn on your flash (the little lightning bolt)
Enough WiFi - if it seems to just keep searching (spinning circle) this means it can't connect. Some stores have problems with dampening WiFi signal and it may not work effectively.
Damaged / Bad Barcode - sometimes the only barcode on a product doesn't match the standard format (like Aldi) and this makes it not scan. Or there could be a wrinkle in it or it can be damaged
4) DAILY REMAINING
This will display the number of BITES, Net Carbs or Calories you have remaining for the day. This is calculated by the information in your PROFILE and is specific to the plan you select. The number at the end of the arc represents how many of your Daily BITES you’ve used [4b] including any pulled from Weekly / Activity.
5) ACTIVITY REMAINING
Displays the number of activity BITES earned when you MOVE! You can add workouts and specific activities under the ACTIVITY section or sync your Fitbit or Apple HealthKit compatible device to import and track your steps. BITES earned from activity can be used daily, accumulated weekly or not used at all. You can choose whether to use this earned activity bonuses before or after weeklies or Manually Redeem them as you want. See the SETTINGS guide help section for more details HERE
6) WEEKLY REMAINING
The number of BITES you have remaining for the week. Depending on what you have selected under your Weight Loss Plan options - once you go over your DAILY BITES, any extra BITES needed will either be taken from these Weekly BITES or your Earned Activity.
7) CALORIES/MACRO TRACKING (PRO FEATURE)
One of the most widely used features by most PRO members is Secondary Metric Tracking. You can choose to also track calories or macros (fat, protein and carbs) alongside your BITES by enabling Secondary Metrics in your Settings. While this is not a requirement, many members like the extra information to see how those BITES are being used and help them work with their nutrition team to get the best results. It is very possible to eat all your BITES and still be very under or over on Calories. This gives you a way to monitor your food’s nutrition better.
1) CALORIE & MACRO SECONDARY TRACKING
This line can be used to track either Calories or Macros in conjunction with your BITES. BITES and Calories ARE NOT necessarily equal. You can, especially on plans like Sugar Smart and Better Balance, use all your daily BITES and still be UNDER your daily caloric target. This is because not all plans consider calories in their equation and plans like Sugar Smart / Better Balance have a different algorithm for sugar which effects it’s BITES value.
BITES TOTALS SHOWN ARE BASED ON THE BETTER BALANCE PLAN
2) GREEN DOTS
Green Dots are a way to mark the days that you are within your Healthy BITES target. Combining this with Calorie or Macro tracking can give you a great overview of your progress. You earn a • Green Dot on any day that you are within -10%/+15% of your Daily BITES.
