New and Improved CM7 Features
IMPROVED TRACKING FEATURES
Set Meal Goals For All Macros
Previously, we only allowed for setting a carbs goal for each meal. Now Premium members can customize fat and protein macros as well as calorie goals for individual meals. Learn More
More Flexibility to Log Recurring Food Automatically
In CM6, foods could only be queued to repeat every day (7 days a week), with no fine-grained options available. In CM7, they can now automatically repeat on specified days of the week (like MWF or weekends only.) Learn More
Create Custom Water “Glass” Size
Ability to customize the size of a water “glass” (in oz or mL) for easier one-tap water tracking. Learn More
New Breath Ketone Tracking
CM7 now gives you the ability to track acetone or “breath” ketones, as well as blood ketone levels. Learn More
Attach Progress Photos to Measurements
CM7 introduced the ability to attach progress photos to your measurements to visualize and track progress over time. Learn More
Google Fit Improvements
Connection with Google Fit now works on iOS and the CM7 web app. Learn More
Free Streak Tracking
The ability to track streaks (subsequent days when you meet your goals) is now free for everyone and available with Carb Manager Basic! Learn More
IMPROVED FOOD SEARCH + LOGGING
Add foods to your log directly from food search with a single tap — no need to open the details window. Additionally, if you add multiple servings of a food at different times for one meal, these servings are now combined together in the Daily Log. Learn More
Enter multiple foods plus serving sizes in your search query and we'll return all foods in specific serving sizes in the search results, which you can then swipe and tap to add without needing to open any food details windows. For example, you could search for “3 eggs, 2 ounces of cheese, and a handful of almonds”, and log all items without leaving the search screen. You can use this feature by typing in your query, or speaking it using our “Say” feature. Simple and easy. Learn More
Display Macros + “Keto Grade” in Food Search
This improvement to food search means we now display all macros and the “Keto Grade” of foods in the food finder during search. Previously, the app did not display any of these.
Saved Search Terms on Toggle
A much requested, recently-added feature, we no longer clear the search term when changing between tabs in the food finder, for seamless search and quicker logging.
NEW FEATURED CONTENT + KETO LEARNING
All-new Keto Academy Video Course
Premium members now have access to our exclusive Keto Academy online course, which includes 40+ videos with beginner to advanced Keto diet topics, and a 7-day recipe bootcamp. Learn More

IMPROVED INSIGHTS, ANALYTICS, AND REPORTING
Easily Visualize Detailed Food Insights
New food insights visualization allows you to see the top contributors for each nutrient over the last day, week, month, or longer period via the Goals -> Insights page (previously in CM6 similar, more limited info was available under “In-Depth" Learn More
Improved Chart Visualizations for Health Metrics
CM7 now includes new “scatter chart” visualizations in the Goals section — better for viewing certain types of health metrics, like glucose readings.

Easily Visualize Categories with Daily Log Meal Emoji
A recent update added meal emoji to each section of the Daily Log to help easily visualize and categorize meals, snacks, and exercise sections.
