Lark takes a unique approach to meal logging. Rather than counting calories and tracking portion size, Lark captures an overview of what you ate. In order to stick with a meal logging plan, it needs to be quick and easy. Provide the information on the type of food you ate, and then Lark will reinforce positive eating habits and relay informational nutritional advice. Lark identifies insightful tips, spot trends in your diet, and even help you become more mindful of what you eat and how it affects you.
Users who are looking to track exact calories, or follow specific diets can benefit from the Lark coaching aspect, but may need to find alternatives for calorie and nutrient calculations.
To make the most out of Lark's meal logging feature, we encourage you to log all your meals. The more descriptive you are, the more Lark understands. For instance, say "Sandwich with turkey and spinach" instead of just "Sandwich."
Meal logging typically happens in the conversation with Lark. At typical breakfast, lunch and dinner times, you’ll be prompted by Lark to log what you ate. Please select the “log what I ate” button and type what you ate when prompted.
However, if you need to log your meal manually, please find two options below:
- Navigate to the plus button on the bottom right hand corner of the screen
- Select “Add data”
- Then, select “Meal” and choose the meal that you would like to log
- Log your food
- When done, select “finish”
Through the data page:
- Navigate to the data page by selecting your profile on the upper left hand corner of the screen
- Select the “Food” tab
- Select an empty meal field (indicated by an unfilled circle)
- Enter what you ate when prompted
