The app recommends optimal amounts based on your user settings. If it’s a scenario where your carbs are being reduced for a very short or easier ride, because you’ve selected “satiety management” instead of performance, then overshooting will have little harm.
If it’s a long ride or harder ride, the app may have prescribe up near what it thinks a good upper limit is for you. It might be risky to overshoot carbs in those scenarios.
Me too! I always rate my indoor training with very high sweat rates using the sweat slider. That typically keeps my fluid & sodium intake pretty appropriate during indoor sessions, and I’m a REALLY heavy sweater.
The app helps you build a recipe for your ideal fuel for each training session. We’re definitely working on really spelling out a step-by-step how-to guide, without cluttering up the screens.
Help me understand what you mean here. Do you mean more instructions for how to put it all together?
Checking out the app. Super cool and very quickly actionable. Low cognitive load which I love.
Any chance at getting custom products to be scaled by weight; if my product lists info per 100g, can I enter in the info assuming the 100g amount while having the app scale appropriately up and down automatically?
Reiterating just to confirm: If you enter the amounts for a 100g serving of that thing, then when you tap the (+) or (-) buttons to add more or less servings of it, on the PREP screen, it’s always referring back to your preferred serving size.
Ah ok. This needs to be clearer. Looking at the custom product app, that doesn’t indicate that 100g is the assumed size when entering in data. Definitely need to state that from a UI perspective
Some other thoughts and recommendations
Metric / imperial switching options (literally never use imperial. Fight me.)
In the prep section, could we have options to change sugar directly? I know it auto changes the value of sugar to 0 as you add more products but i tend to not use sugar generally so having it off screen might be nice (small suggestion). Maybe substitute to carbs?
Would also suggest that the EU user recommendation in the custom area be like a button / switch from sodium to salt to make it easier to see
If you could have bulk maltodextrin / glucose powders also listed that would be great. As a UK user there is myprotein and bulk which offer such items.
Maybe a flavouring option in the mix builder?
Serving size stated in terms of weight (grams ideally as well)
Total calories: I know the focus is performance but those counting calories would love this info off hand
Not clear when an activity becomes past. Maybe have a button to move a drink mix to past?
Need to be able to write feedback. If I make a godly drink, let me have some stars and a note pad to indicate this! Also a good point to jump off for sharing mixes.
I value the ability to to do the thing I want to do quickly very highly. I find that frictions tend to prevent me in doing what I need to do. Any chance to make something easier to do, I’ll take it so I can ensure consistency.
I forget my drink recipe every time I’m off to make it. Even if I write it down (which I do), I may like to tweak due to adding some flavorings or change the amount of salt. Becomes hard to make adjustments on the fly like that without knowing what changes. This app does that all for me and so I can just go, “oh ok this works, lets fire that up”.
Sorry, I misspoke! App assumes that whatever inputs you give it for carbs and sodium are the serving size that you want. But I can see how that could be made clearer in the UI. Noted!
Where are you seeing that you are locked into imperial? I use metric too!
Great point. What do you typically use?
Safe to assume you are indeed in the EU?
Dicey due to issues surrounding eating disorder psychology, but we are debating internally how to manage this very well. Suffice to say: planned and will be careful and respectful of a wide range of user experiences
