How to use the Weight Loss Tracker

We are so, so excited about our new Weight Loss Tracker! We know that setting a goal is often one of the most important motivators to getting where you want to be when starting a weight loss journey. 

With our tracker, you can log your start weight, current weight and goal weight to see how far you’ve come. It’s never been easier to stay on track!

For every milestone you hit, you’ll be able to download a certificate or badge to share with your friends and family. The more weight you lose towards your goal, the more certificates you’ll earn! 

On this certificate is your amazing weight loss achievement, as well as a fun fact about what this amount equates to as an animal or object. 

We’ve already seen lots of people sharing their badges on social media and we LOVE seeing them so don’t forget to tag us!

You could also print them out to proudly display at home.

Your Pinch of Nom recipes

Our recipes have also had a makeover and we hope it’s now much easier for you to find all the information you need!

We know that people follow diets in different ways, so we’ve included as much nutritional information as possible for each dish. We’ve also added values for the new Weight Watchers plans

There are a number of new and improved features on our recipe pages, here are just a few:

Adjustable servings

We know how frustrating it can be to discover a tasty looking recipe online, only to find it has been written for 4 or 6 people, when there are only 2 of you eating. 

For this reason, you can now use the up and down arrows on our recipe cards to adjust the number of servings, and the ingredients will update accordingly.

No more having to use your phone as a calculator for your shopping list! 

New and improved categories

As well as our standard meal categories, we’ve also grouped our recipes together depending on calorie counts. 

You may recognise the categories from our first book! They are ’Everyday Light’, ‘Weekly Indulgence’ and ‘Special Occasion’.

These categories mean the following:

Everyday Light

These recipes can be enjoyed every day and all come in at under 400 calories.

Weekly Indulgence

We recommend making these recipes a couple of times a week. They are usually between 400-500 calories.

Special Occasion

We recommend saving these recipes for…you guessed it; special occasions! These recipes are 500+ calories.

How to save recipes

Another great new feature in your Pinch of Nom account is the ability to save your favourite recipes. No more bookmarks or having to keep several tabs open!
