Logging food and exercise (Step 5+)

Logging

You should log all of your food & exercise activities – including snacks and walks – in the Levels app to ensure that your final month-end report is as accurate as possible. Levels uses entry logs to provide a feedback loop between your actions and your body's responses, raising your metabolic awareness.

To add a log

  1. In the Levels app, tap the Add a Log button - the green button with a '+' sign at the bottom of the Dashboard
  2. Take a picture of the food you'd like to log, activity you're doing, or note for general tracking
    1. A note on notes: When using Levels you may notice that some unexpected things can impact your glucose levels. Examples include an increase in acute stress, supplements like vitamin c, pain relievers like aspirin, and even some skincare products. Logging these events as a note will help you draw those connections.

To add an old log by importing a photo

You may find it convenient to create a log using a photo you already have. If you import a photo, we'll automatically detect the time based on when the image was taken. [Some Android versions might not work with this approach. We are currently investigating a solution to this issue, but cannot provide a timeline at this time.]

In the Levels app, tap the Add a Log button - the green button with a '+' sign at the bottom of the Dashboard

  1. In the Add a Log page, tap the gallery icon(bottom left side)
  2. Select a photo from your camera roll
  3. Type in a short description of the food item
