NEW! Openfit Meal Scanner Makes It Easier to Log Your Nutrition

Tracking what you eat can be key to helping you lose weight, eat healthier, and learn more about how certain foods impact your body. But many people find logging their meals too complicated and time consuming.

So Openfit created a quick, simple meal-scanning feature that allows you to automate your food logging in concert with the Openfit tracker and the One-Minute Meal Plan. All you need is the camera on your mobile device and the Openfit app.


How Does Openfit’s Meal Scanner Work?

Just scan what you’re about to eat using your phone’s camera. For best accuracy, focus your camera on one item at a time, whether it’s the food itself, a barcode, or its packaging.


How to Get Started: Step by Step

Prominently displayed on the dashboard of the Openfit app is the scanning icon. meal scanJust tap it and you’ll be in scanning mode.

Point your camera at the item you want to catalog.

Once the scanner recognizes it, a table will pop up displaying the food’s nutritional content along with “Other Suggestions” of similar foods. The first nutritional information you’ll see is the calorie total. To view macronutrient totals such as carbs, fat, and protein, simply tap on the serving amount.

Scan as many items as you’d like in one session. Your display will show the full drawer of items, so you can add/delete along the way. You have the option of editing serving sizes as well.

If for some reason the meal scanner does not recognize an item, you can still “Search manually” the way you always have.

Why Is Openfit Nutrition so Effective?

Knowing what to eat, how much to eat, and how to put it all together in a way that helps you reach your fitness and weight-loss goals can be a challenge. We’re here to help.

Along with a simple food tracker to log your meals, the Openfit app makes it easy to dial up a healthy eating plan that features recipes personalized to your tastes. Combine all that with our world-class workouts and the sky’s the limit on what you can achieve.

It takes just one minute to set up your customized nutrition plan on Openfit. You can choose your preferences and restrictions, including vegan, vegetarian, and more. Each meal takes 30 minutes or less to prepare, and contains only five to eight ingredients.

When your weekly menu is generated, you have the option to swap out any meals you don’t like — just tap “Replace” and choose from a list of other tasty options.

Or, if you prefer to track your own food instead of following a pre-made plan, you can do that by logging your food with our simple meal-scanning tool.

You can also jumpstart your weight loss and improve your energy by following our Sugar Free 3 program. It’s three weeks of resetting your body to help you resist the kinds of sugar cravings that can stall your progress, or even cause you to take a step back.

When you’re looking to accelerate your progress, our nutritional supplements can be a huge help. Openfit has joined forces with LADDER, founded by LeBron James and Arnold Schwarzenegger, to provide you with top-of-the-line performance supplements to accompany your workout routine. The LADDER brand, formulated by scientists and trusted by elite athletes, is known for its quality and effectiveness.

And all of our nutrition options work seamlessly with the full library of Openfit workouts, to help you see fast results and live healthier.
