It would be great if our daily and weekly macronutrients totals could be viewed on the Fitbit app. The only way to see our macronutrients is to view the dashboard online. I'm tracking my calorie intake however I also need to ensure that i meet my total protein allowance.

Welcome to the forums @LisaC905! Our Food logging feature does not have the capacity to track your Macros, but you can certainly vote on our Feature Requests boards to have this implemented. Cat Happy

 

In the meantime I recommend to link your Fitbit Profile to MyFitnessPal which has a Macro and Micro tracker (on the mobile version too!); along with users all over the world and a huge database, including barcode scanner and recipe builder.

 

They are supported both through a computer as well as through most Smartphones. You can get more information on this page.

 

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions Cat Very Happy

I fully agree with your comment. Having the ability to track and view such detail would be great on the app regardless. It's slightly hendering when you can't see a graph such as a pie graph or scatter plot to show carbs, fats, sugars and the alike.

@Stone98 I hope you're doing well! That is a great idea! You should vote for the idea I left on the reply I made on your previous post. That way, it may get implemented in the nearest future. If you have any other suggestions to make, don't hesitate to suggest them.

 

See you around! Smiley Happy

Hello, 

I see the opportunity to upvote to have macros added to the app. But how many more people need to request/upvote to actually get Fitbit to implement it? Seems there is a huge need for it.

I agree with the need to track carbs, etc...  I am diabetic and need to track my carebs closely all day.  I'm actually considering abandoning fitbit and going with onedrop.  I've been using fitbit for close to five years.

@bobinmi Welcome to the Fitbit family! You can actually track your carbs with Fitbit, but only on the online dashboard for the moment. To do so, go to the Log Food section. Scroll down a little to see your "Daily Totals". You will be able to see your carbs and other macros there. Check the picture below!

Try that option out and let me know how it goes! Smiley Happy

My screen doesn't look anything like yours. I have a Fitbit Alta.  Is your screen only available in more expensive models?

@Monicalucia Thanks for joining the Fitbit Community! By taking a look at the picture you just shared I can see you are using the Fitbit app for Windows 10.

 

In order for you to see the "Daily Totals" please go to the online dashboard at Fitbit.com. Log in to your account and follow the steps on my previous post.

@dmcafee0 Thanks for joining the Fitbit family! Recently, an update was made to the Fitbit app that will allow you to see some macro-nutrients on the food tile. If you have a food that was previously logged, just tap on it and you should see the macros. If you are going to log food, log it and you should see the macros. It looks like this:

Thanks. That was what I was looking for. Now if you can get it to total
for the day, like it does on a computer, it would be perfect.

@dmcafee0 Thanks for your reply! What kind of totals? That would be a great addition. Hopefully, this will be available later on! You can vote for this idea I found on the Feature Suggestions Board which is asking for the same to be implemented soon!

 

Hope this helps. See you around! Smiley Happy

I'm thinking of total carbs, fat and protein for the day, so those that
need to track them can access on their phones.

@dmcafee0 Thanks for your reply! You mean like having the app showing grams instead of percentage totals, right? 

 

That is a great idea! Hopefully, we will be able to see that in the future! Feel free to vote for this idea to support it!
