@jake3_14 cool I coincidentally made a similar feature request. In response the guy pointed out that right now you can at least filter food "source" to "custom" in the upper-left drop-down to see just the stuff you and friends have added.

@Methodician,

I just asked for a feature to let friends view each others' custom foods and recipes. For now, though, you have to use the search box and look for foods that come up in colors other than black.

@Methodician,

Try looking at your Profile page in the Sharing frame. I've never had to accept a friend request, so I'm making an educated guess.

I had to manually log out and log back in to accept your request but it worked. Is there a way to brows your custom foods directly or do I just have to hope I come across them using the search box?

I got and email notification about your friend request, Jake (hey that's my name!) but I can't see how to accept it. I've sent out a few friend requests too. How do you accept them?

Paleohacks doesn't allow uploads of .csv files, but basically, the columns are

  • day
  • diary group (e.g., breakfast, lunch, dinner)
  • amount
  • unit of measure
  • mass
  • Food ID
  • Food Name
  • Energy (kcal)
  • all macronutrients (separate column for each)
  • all micronutrients (separate column for each)

OK, I figured out how to make a friend request. I've asked everybody on this thread to be a friend. As incentive, I've created 96 custom foods, supplements, and recipes to share (see attached image file cronometer custom foods.pdf).

I'm a gold member, too. It would be better if I could construct my own ratio displays, e.g., Ca:Mg, K:Na, Mg:K.

Right now I'm trying about 18% protein / 16% carbs / 66% fat as an experiment (gut issues) - probably going to default back to more carbs and less fat but I'm hanging onto the theory that moderating protein can extend life span.

It's a series of spreadsheets with full nutritional data and details of all the foods you have eaten, all the biometric data, exercise data and notes. Days on the left, other info across the spreadsheet

I recently changed my to 40/15/45 P/C/F. I found I wasn't getting enough vitamins without bumping up the carbs (veggies) and since I'm in the gym again after a 6-month hiatus, I'm bumping up the protein.

35%C, 20%P, 45%F, as an experiment. Trying to see if I can increase my basal metabolic rate by eating more carbs. Used to be more like 20%/25%/55% - just like you.

FYI I just went ahead and became a 6-month member of Cronometer Gold and one of the new features is an Omega 6/3 ratio calculator, and a Zinc/Copper ratio calculator... SWEET. Now if the USDA and CRDB would start including Omega breakdowns on Grassfed meat... :-(

Username is GNUJoshua btw... feel free to be my cronometer friend...

If you stumble across this add me too: Methodician

Also: does anyone know if there's a way to view a person's "profile" or at least see a list of all their customer foods and recipes? The only benefit I see so far is that your customs will show up in my searches. Not exactly awesome but no harm.

Can someone with the gold membership post an example of the data export? I'm curious what it looks like to see if its worth upgrading to gold.

I just started using the free cron-o-meter. I love being able to track my macronutrient ratio! But looks like you have to be a gold member to have friends :-(

Like Joshua, I think I'll wait awhile before deciding on that.

I would, but I'm not yet on Cron-o-meter gold. I am waiting until I've used it over 3mos to get the full benefit (reporting only goes out a few weeks with standard). I'll keep an eye on this thread.
