By tapping on "Journal", all your meals will be visible, in addition to movement, reflections, notes, beverages, sleep, and measurements that have also been added.

All the meal photos that have been added help to build your path. To do so, your first food picture will begin your timeline. All proceeding meals will be posted there as well, including the meal times, the time between meals, and the On-path/Off-path made clearly visible (unless you have decided to turn it off, you can turn it off here).

To see the timeline, tap on "Journal" in the bottom Navigation bar. Here simply swipe down on the timeline to view all the meals and anything else added.

Here the different experiments that have been tried (or are in progress) will also be visible.

By default, meals will not be combined. However, in settings, it is possible to turn on the meal combination and set that to 30 minutes (or any preferred amount). When meals are grouped within 30 minutes of each other, it truly makes it feel like it was one meal.

Be more mindful by…

Customizing the interval in settings. 20 minutes can work great if that’s better for you. Also setting an after-meal reminder with the same time interval to bring awareness when this eating window closes.

Building your Timeline

Take a picture of every meal or snack that you've consumed. This will create your path with On-path and Off-path meals visible.

From there, scroll back to see how your eating and habit-building have been going. Seeing meals on various days on a linear timeline can help put together interdependencies between choices. A salad might have looked like a good idea the night before last night, but if it did not satisfy your body and left you feeling starving later and causing you to binge in the morning, it was probably not enough to fuel your body.

Reflecting on choices (both the type of meals and timing) can help in making better decisions down the road.

Be more mindful by…

If interested in tracking water, bulletproof coffees, activities, moods, sleep, measurements, and/or just taking general notes, these can be added to your path as well by tapping on "+ " in the bottom Navigation bar.
