If you have a change in your activity level, there are two actions that you can take with Carbon.

  1. Continue your current goal and let the coach adjust to your new activity level.

  2. Change your goal and update your activity level.

Which action you take will depend on how drastically your activity levels have changed.

Continue your current goal and let the coach adjust to your new activity level

The reason that you would choose this option is if your activity level has NOT changed drastically.

Examples of this include:

  • Minor changes in your weekly exercise. Such as doing 1-2 fewer training sessions per week.

  • Minor changes in step count, such as going from 5,000 daily steps to 10,000.

  • A once-in-awhile increase in activity. Such as,

    • Running a 5k or half-marathon

    • Doing a week-long boot-camp regiment

  • Getting sick and taking the week off your regular routine.

Carbon Diet Coach was designed to adapt to your exercise and activity level by analyzing your weight trend over time. If you move less, your weight will likely increase. If you move more, your weight will likely decrease. Carbon will adjust accordingly to keep you on track without you changing anything in the app.

Change your goal and update your activity level while doing so

If your activity level changes drastically. Examples of this include:

  • Medical procedures that involve multiple weeks of recovery.

    • Drastic increases in exercise. Such as going from 3-4 weight training sessions per week to daily marathon training.

  • Drastic decrease in exercise. Such as not being able to train.

If this is your case, it might be helpful to change your goal within the app. While changing your goal, you will want to calculate a new metabolism. To do this, click on Settings -> Coach Settings -> Goal.

Consistency is key

It is important to remember that you will NOT receive consistent calorie and macro adjustments if you do NOT have consistent activity levels. The app will likely offer frequent significant calorie adjustments, up or down, to try and keep up with these changes.
