Nutrition Tracking in PT Distinction

Nutrition tracking is an important part of getting great results for personal training clients.

Due to the value of this feature and the fact that different clients respond best to different methods of food tracking PT Distinction has a number of very powerful options for clients to easily and accurately track the foods they're eating and share them with you.

There are 4 main options you can use with your clients;

1 - Photo Food Diary with Written Food Diary.

2 – My Fitness Pal Integration

3 – Simple Adherence Chart

4 – Habit Tracking

You can then give each client feedback from right inside their food diary, or by using the inbuilt messenger.


Photo Food Diary

Taking photographs of meals and snacks is a simple way to track what your clients eat, photos show exactly what's on the plate leaving nothing to personal interpretation. They're also a very easy and fast way to track nutrition.
