Your feedback matters, please use our dedicated forum to let us know what you think. Do not send us support emails for the Beta version. You'll only get a response if your post your question in our forum.

What's new?

The new version of KetoDiet is a complete redesign that took us years to develop. Every aspect of the app has been improved and there is little resemblance to the current version. The main benefit of the new KetoDiet app is that it works on both the iPad and iPhone. All features will be available on either device.

Here's a quick summary of the new features:

  • KetoDiet app is now Universal and supports both iPhone and iPad
  • We have improved every aspect of the current app:
    • New profile section with integrated Keto Calculator allows you to estimate your macronutrient targets
    • KetoDiet Meals can now be added directly to the planner from the Meals tab
    • Custom meals, Ingredients and Restaurants are now top level items with enhanced features
    • Blog meals are auto-imported and ready to be used (under Custom meals). You wont have to manually import them anymore.
    • Basket can now group meals by ingredient type, meal, etc
    • Planner provides finer portion adjustments and is simpler to use
    • Progress allows you to focus on specific date ranges
  • Sync data between devices (requires free KetoDiet account - learn more about syncing
  • Switch between multiple accounts (requires free KetoDiet account - will be available in January following initial release)

Note: The Data sync support will be introduced in a follow-up update currently scheduled for Dec 12, 2016.

Data Sync

KetoDiet uses its own syncing solution instead of relying on iCloud. We do this because it offers the flexibility to implement features we want in the future.

What are the reasons for using our own syncing solution?

  • We want our users to be able to sync their data across all our apps (both KetoDiet & KetoDiet Basic) and all platforms (iOS & Android), not just iOS.
  • In the future, we aim to have better integration with the KetoDiet Website. For example, we plan to enable participants of KetoDiet Challenges to sync their progress with the app.
  • Finally, we want to support multiple accounts on a single device and make it easy for users to switch quickly between accounts.

What does it mean for our users?

Similar to the built-in iCloud sync that relies on your iTunes account to identify you, we require users to sign up & sign in to be able to sync their data. If you don't want to sign up that's fine: all your data will be stored only on your device and KetoDiet will work as normal without syncing.

If you already have signed up for KetoDiet Challenges or KetoDiet Forums then you already have a KetoDiet account. Just use it to sign in.

If you need to sign up, all you need to do is:

  • In the KetoDiet app, select Yes, sign me in under Profile > Account & Sync, followed by Sign up on the next screen
  • Enter your email and tap on Sign up
  • You'll get an email with an activation link to verify your email
  • Open the activation link and you'll be asked to set a password for your KetoDiet account to protect it
  • You can now Sign in under Profile > Account & Sync in the app

...That's it!

If you sign out, or you sign in using a different account, you won't be able to access your data. By default, KetoDiet will keep you signed in until you sign out.

What happens when the very first time you sign in on a device?

When you sign in on a device for the very first time, all your local data on that device are moved into your online account. Once you do that, your data can only be accessed as long as you're signed in under Profile > Account & Sync.

What happens the first time you sign in on another device?

The first time you sign in on another device, all local data on that device will be merged into your account. There is no option to by-pass that in the Beta.

In the future, we may provide an option to opt-out from any local data being merged into your online account.

Data Sync FAQ

Can I sign out and restore my original data on the device?

No, you cannot restore your original data unless you have a backup on iTunes.

Do I have to be online to access my data?

No, you can access your data offline at any time. However, any changes you make will be synced once you have internet access.

Can I change the email I use to sign in?

Not at the moment, but we'll offer functionality to change your email in the future.

How many online accounts can I use?

For the Beta you can use as many accounts as you like. Once KetoDiet is released we'll allow users to have 1 free online account and offer an option to buy more if needed.

We cannot offer multiple accounts for free as we have store all user data on our servers which costs us money in terms of storage, processing and bandwidth.

Why do I need to sign up? Other apps I use don't require that?

For the reasons stated above, we don't use iCloud for syncing. You don't have to sign up to use any features of the KetoDiet app apart from syncing which requires that you sign-in using your KetoDiet account.
