Do I need to log my meals during the ZOE test?
We encourage you to log your typical diet for at least three days during your ZOE test. This forms part of your diet assessment, which we'll use to generate personalized feedback on your diet when your results are ready. Of course, you can log your meals more often than this if you want to.
Will logging my meals during the ZOE test contribute to my results?
Logging your meals won’t contribute to your official results. That said, while logging your meals during the testing period is optional and won’t impact the accuracy of your results, there are a few benefits to logging more often during the testing period.
Should I be logging supplements?
You do not need to log supplements, vitamins or medication. This is not something we take into account with our scores yet, however, it’s an idea for future research!
Why should I log my meals during the ZOE test?
Here's what you'll get out of logging your meals during the testing phase:
Scored meals: When your results are ready, you’ll get personalized ZOE Scores for the meals you logged during your test. This will give you insights into the quality of your diet right now and where there’s room for improvement.
Personalized diet feedback: You’ll also get suggestions to help improve your diet with your results. This feedback will include: higher-scoring swaps for low-scoring foods you eat often; high-scoring foods to continue eating; and low-scoring foods you may want to eat less of.
Blood sugar insights: If you wear a blood sugar sensor, you’ll also get a Testing Recap when you finish up your test. This will include insights into your most and least stable days and meals that caused the biggest blood sugar spikes. Please note: you’ll need to log at least 6 meals to get a testing recap at the end of your testing phase.
Advance Science: Logged meals will give us better insights into blood sugar responses and the gut microbiome. These can help contribute to the continual advancement of science for all.
