Restaurant FAQs

Why doesn’t the restaurant menu have nutritional information? (US only)

We’ve organized our restaurant list into two categories – chain restaurants that publish their nutritional data online like McDonald’s or Chipotle, and local restaurants that don’t publish their nutritional information, like a neighborhood deli. For these smaller or local restaurants where nutrition information may not be available, you can add your meal manually, and UP will save it in your library so you’ll have it forever.


The restaurant menu is not accurate (missing data, dishes that no longer exist, wrong calories).

We’re constantly updating our database with new information to keep restaurant menus up-to-date, however certain restaurant menus may sometimes appear slightly outdated or may not publish calorie information. You can help us improve our database of menus in a couple of different ways:

  1. You can flag incorrect foods from within the UP application. Just swipe to the left on any inaccurate food item listed in the app to indicate an issue. When you flag, this information will go back to the restaurant. 


  1. You can also encourage your local restaurant manager to update their listing to include an accurate menu and calorie information. The menus in UP are provided by SinglePlatform. To update the menu listing the restaurant manager should contact SinglePlatform directly where they can manage your menu listing.

How Do I Log Weight?

Log your weight directly in the app. You can also use a wifi scale by connecting it to UP in the app gallery.

From the homescreen, open the left menu and tap Weight.

Tap to edit Weight, Body Fat % and Time. Tap the check icon in the upper right corner to save.





How Do I Set Weight and Calorie Goals?

To set a weight goal with UP, open the left menu from the home screen and tap Goals. You may choose to gain, maintain or lose weight.


If you want to maintain, your weight goal will default to your current weight in UP. If your weight has changed, change it by logging your new weight on UP.

If you want to lose or gain weight, you will be able to choose your desired goal by using a slider.

When finished setting your weight goal, tap the check icon in the upper right corner to save.

Your calorie balance goal will automatically adjust to reflect your weight goal. Our recommendation is based on the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.






What Are Common Pairings?

Common pairings makes food suggestions based on the items you have already included in your current meal. If you log a coffee, UP may suggest that you also log sugar or milk. Tap any suggestion to easily add it to your meal.​
