The first week of Veri is all about getting your baseline data so you can understand what you're doing well and what you can improve on! This is your guide to getting started on that journey.

We'll cover everything you need to know on your first week:

Visit your timeline

Your Timeline is a record of all your activity. It’s always the first page you see when opening the app.

During the day, you’ll scan your sensor and add meals, exercise, sleep, and events. You'll see everything added to your timeline along with helpful tips along the way.

Your glucose data will be used to calculate your Meal and Daily Scores so you can see how food, activities, and lifestyle impact your metabolic health (more on this later).

You’ll be empowered to make the best choices for you and your health, with real data from your body.

You can learn more about your Timeline here.

Scan your sensor at least every 8 hours

The Libre sensor holds eight hours of data.

It’s important that you scan when you wake up, before bed, and a couple of times in between, otherwise you’ll see gaps in your data. You'll use an app called LibreLink for the sensor scanning, which will automatically pull the data into Veri.

Make sure your reminder notifications are on so you don’t forget!

Add your meals

Logging all of your meals is critical because it allows you to learn how each one affects your metabolic health.

  1. Tap the empty meal slot on your timeline or tap "Add meal" at the bottom.

  2. Add the name of the meal, ingredients, quantities, a photo, and time. (You can even add recent meals or a previous meal that you’ve favorited. ❤️)

  3. Tap save and you're done! If this is a typical meal for you - tap the favorite "heart" at the bottom so you can quickly access it next time.

  4. Your Meal Score will be ready in 2 hours.

TIP: If you give it a descriptive name, we'll provide "smart suggestions" of ingredients based on the name to make logging even faster.

You can also search for the ingredients in the search bar, including thousands of branded ingredients!

Once you’ve added a meal, Veri gets to work analyzing your glucose response to provide a Meal Score.

TIP: For blazing fast meal logging, you can tap a recent meal to add it immediately, or tap the heart icon to quickly add your favorited meals.

Know your Meal Scores

The Meal Score brings together evidence-based glucose measures to rate your meal from 1 to 10. A higher score reflects a meal with a more stable glucose response.

The score integrates glucose fluctuation, glucose rise, time above ideal range, and after-meal average glucose level. Learn more about your Meal Score here.

Consistently aiming for higher meal scores (typically, 7-10), may be a good step toward supporting your metabolic health.

You can experiment with things like adding more fiber, substituting refined foods for whole foods, and eating protein/fat before carbs to help increase your Meal Scores.

We also encourage you to join the conversation in our Community! You'll learn strategies and tactics (including recipes 😋 ) from peers and nutritionists that can help you reach your goals.

Track events, exercise, and sleep


Did you know you can automatically add exercise and sleep through Apple Health, Google Fit, Fitbit, and Oura?

Connecting Fitbit:

Connecting Oura:

Connecting Apple Health:

Connecting Google Fit:

You may need to close and reopen Veri in order for data syncing to take place. If you are seeing duplicate events, make sure that you don't have more than one source turned on for those events.

If you do not have other wearables or do not wish to use Apple Health or Google Fit, you can manually track events by following the instructions below.


Exercise is critical to your metabolic health. Not only does it increase insulin sensitivity (link), something as simple as a 20-minute walk after meals can blunt a glucose spike, avoiding that post-spike energy crash.

Tap the plus sign at the bottom right, then "Event," then "Activity."

From here, you can select the type of workout - everything from walking to weightlifting - then just add the time and duration!


We all know sleep is important, but did you know it’s important for metabolic health too? (link) If you’re using Apple Health or GoogleFit, we’ll automatically add your sleep. Otherwise, you can tap “Add Sleep” and record the timing and duration.


Food, exercise, and sleep aren’t the only things that affect your glucose levels - that’s why we added “Events.” This lets you log anything from a hot shower to medication. This lets you learn what other factors might be affecting you.


If weight management is one of your goals, you can log your weight right in the app with just a few taps! You can change units at any time by going to Profile -> Settings -> In-app units.

You can then see your weight and your progress from your timeline or by visiting your profile.

Review your Daily Scores

At the end of each day, you’ll receive a Daily Score. The Daily Score is a dynamic score that integrates vital science-backed lifestyle and glucose contributors into a singular measure, with a maximum score of 100. You should aim for 80-100 each day, but life happens and perfection is not the goal. Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t make it to 80, try something different the next day!

The major contributors to your Daily Score include meal scores, meal timing, fasting window, along with lifestyle factors, like sleep quantity and quality, and physical activity/exercise.

Think of your Daily Score as your North star in your journey to achieve optimal metabolic health. It allows you rapidly to compare key metrics across days, weeks, and months.
