FAQ: Why should I log my activities in the app?
Why should I log my activities in the app?
Understanding the impact of your meals and activities starts with tracking them in your Levels app. These logs provide a connection, or feedback loop, between your actions and your body's responses. On the Today page in your Levels app, you’ll find recommendations based on what’s happening in your logs and glucose responses. Since food, sleep, and exercise play crucial roles in metabolic health, the more you log, the more relevant insights you’ll receive.
It's important to keep in mind that lifestyle decisions don't happen in a vacuum: a snack, a nap, and a workout each have a metabolic effect on their own, but when these decisions happen close together, their effects combine in dependent ways. Zone Scores are Levels' way of capturing and informing you of these multi-factor effects.
As you see the impact of the foods you eat, try experimenting with new ingredients, different portion sizes, or these glucose lowering strategies. For example, if you see a significant spike from an apple, try adding almond butter the next time. If you spike with rice, try swapping for cauliflower rice or taking a 20-minute walk after the meal.
