Portion size is now optional when logging meals! By default, portion size tracking will be turned off.

Our goal at Veri is to help you focus on eating high-quality foods to improve your glucose levels and, ultimately, your health. Portion size is not required to achieve that, and can make logging your meals more time-consuming.

For many new users, portion size logging can be a distraction and is too similar to the calorie-counting experience of other apps.

If you find value in keeping portion sizes, you can enable portion logging at any time from the app settings section.

Frequently asked questions

Can I disable/enable portion size logging any time I want?

Yes! If you decide to change your mind, you can disable or enable portion size logging from the app settings section.

If I log a meal without the portion, can I go back and add portions later?

Once a meal is created without portions it cannot be changed to show portion sizes.

Will I be able to see nutrition information?

Meals that are created while the setting is turned off will not show the nutritional info.

Previously logged meals, as well as new meals logged while the portion sizes setting is turned on, will show nutrition info on the meal screen.

Do portion sizes impact my Meal Score?

No, portion sizes do not impact your Meal Score. The Meal Score takes into account glucose response and Food Quality.
