Feature: Habit Loops

💡 Overview: Habit Loops is an in-app feature that allows members to customize targets, track more nutritional habits, like protein and fiber intake, monitor weekly metrics, and track progress over time.

📅 Release Date: February 2024

Currently, Habit Loops includes tracking of 9 key habits that contribute to optimal metabolic health. 

  • 👣 Steps: Frequent movement throughout the day—especially after meals—is key to stable glucose. Use this habit loop to motivate yourself to get up and get moving.
  • 🏋️ Exercise: Any type of exercise improves insulin sensitivity and overall health. Use this habit loop to work towards exercising every day, even at low intensity.
  • 🛏️ Sleep: Low or poor-quality sleep impacts glucose the next day, and can increase cravings and stress. Use this habit loop to strive for 7-8 hours of good sleep a night.
  • 🍗 Total Protein: Getting enough protein is vital for boosting satiety, stabilizing blood sugar, and supporting metabolic health. Use this habit loop to track towards your daily quota.
  • 🥗 Total Fiber: Fiber plays key roles in gut health and blood sugar. Use this habit loop to track towards your daily fiber target.
  • 📈 Spike-free days: Avoiding sharp rises and falls in blood sugar is the best way to build optimal metabolic health. Aim for gentle rises every day.
  • 💪Strenuous workouts: Workouts that push your heart rate, like HIIT and CrossFit, have unique metabolic benefits. Start adding more into your routine and track towards a weekly target.
  • 💦 Water Intake: The amount of water consumed to maintain hydration.
  • 🧘 Mindful time: Time you spend through meditation, deep breathing, or focused attention to enhance mental clarity and well-being.
