My macronutrients seem incorrect. Why?
The nutrient calculation is based on the total number of calories absorbed and what this energy level corresponds to in terms of macronutrient amounts.
The nutrients you see in the app may not reflect the nutrient value of a particular meal you might have had, because the device tracks calories received both from food and from your body’s internal stores of energy.
If for example, you did a workout and a lot of energy was released from your internal stores, the app will reflect this additional carb intake, and the total number of carbs consumed would be higher than you actually consumed from food on that day.
You may also see, for example, that the app shows less protein than you actually consumed. Protein usually takes much more time to be digested and absorbed by your body than other macronutrients. The exact amount of time depends on many factors, such as the amount of protein consumed, what other foods it was consumed with, the speed of your metabolism, your level of physical activity, and your health status, etc. For this reason, some parts of your meal may get digested later in the day, or even the next day, and you will see a reflection of this in the app.
Please note also that GoBe 2 is designed in compliance with the conditions of a healthy nutritious diet. Fasting or severe dietary restrictions (i.e., a ketogenic diet) can affect the accuracy of the device. However, we plan to add support for diet mode in future GoBe releases.
