Food logging is a critical part of the Lark DPP. Studies have shown that lifestyle changes are as effective as taking medication, and ultimately costs less for you. Prescription medications can often help manage diabetes, but their drawbacks can include high upfront costs, side effects or complications, and lack of effectiveness due to low adherence. Lifestyle changes are known to lower risk for and help control your diabetes, and these changes don't have to be expensive for you. 

Healthy changes include:

  • Losing excess weight
  • Increasing physical activity
  • Following a more prudent diet
  • Getting adequate sleep
  • Managing stress

To help you track your food intake, utilize Lark's food logging. 

How does it work?

Lark's Meal Logging feature is not your typical calorie counter. While most calorie trackers attempt to be precise at the cost of being tedious. We took a unique and simplistic approach to Meal Logging. Lark can obtain a surprisingly comprehensive picture of your diet by simply tracking the type of food you ate. We won't ask you for precise measurements or guilt you if you forgot to log a meal (although, the more you log the better the feedback). We understand that permanent weight loss relies on actual behavior-based changes and not just calorie counting and intricate Meal Logging.

We can squeeze a surprising amount of data from just looking at what you ate and your eating habits. Additionally, you can still use third-party nutritional apps to log meals and check out your calories consumed in the Apple Health dashboard.

Can I get an overview of all the meals that I logged?

You can look at your meal history by tapping on the Activity tab and choosing the Food view at the top. We refine the way we help you visualize this information based on your feedback.

What if I have a food allergy or specific dietary restrictions?

It is best to consult your doctor if you have any questions in regards to specific food allergies and dietary restrictions. Lark is a useful tool but our coaching and feedback are limited to a few specific dietary restrictions located at Settings > Customize my coach > Diet Preferences  You may choose one or more of these preferences.

Adding meals may seem like a small part, but these small changes can make a huge difference in your Lark DPP journey!
