When you purchase products at Pure Fare (in our locations or through ecommerce), our technology will send your purchases nutritional information automatically to your My Fare profile page. That's it!

Please send item(s) you would like to add to the following email address:
Please note that we will need the ingredients and measurements to accurately integrate the item into our database.
What is BMI (Body Mass Index)? Is it an accurate indicator of my health?
BMI (Body Mass Index) is a standardized ratio of weight to height and is often used as a general indicator of health. However, BMI does not take body composition into account. A weight above this range could still be considered healthy if your percentage body fat is less than average.
Why is my waist size important?
If you are a male with waist size greater than 40" or a female with a waist size greater than 35", you may be at higher risk for certain diseases including: diabetes and heart disease. In other words, use waist size as a "check" even if your BMI is in the healthy range.
How do you arrive at my recommended foods in my My Fare profile?
Pure Fare uses an algorithm to match specific Pure Fare items to your health profile. As you consume more calories and log these items, your personalized food recommendations continually update with items that fit your remaining nutrient balance.
Why are the statistics / charts helpful? What should I look for?
The Statistics part your My Fare page will allow you to observe your consumption patterns and weight through time. If you track your foods often, you will be able to accurately get a snapshot of how often you are over or under your target daily caloric intake.
We will definitely make further enhancements to these analytics and offer you new and exciting features in the near future.
How accurate is your daily calorie allowance calculation?
An accurate determination of the calories you burn can only be accomplished by individual physiological testing administered by a medical professional. However, our tools provide a reasonable estimate of your daily needs.
If I start to exercise more, should I update my profile?
Yes! Exercise complements healthy eating. If you increase your level of physical activity this will change your target daily caloric intake. Combining healthy eating with physical exercise will help you achieve your goals. Our exercise database contains over 500 exercises and activities.
How do I update my weight?
When on you're My Fare page, click to the "Edit" button. On this page, find the "Weight" field and enter in your new weight.
Do I have to set a goal?
Nope. We leave this up to you. As defined by your profile and if necessary, our site will provide you with a recommended level of weight loss in order to achieve a healthy or normal BMI.
I don't want to set a time period to achieve my goal, is that ok?
Of course - again, we leave this completely up to you. We do, however, recommend a timeframe for you.
In my log, what does the "PF" stand for by my entries?
The "PF" refers to items that you have purchased from a Pure Fare location. Our in-store technology automatically sends these items and their nutritional composition to your My Fare page. In other words, we do the work for you.
What is your 80/20 rule?
This is an important part of what our brand is about - 80% of time try and be eat healthy (along with engaging in physical activity), 20% of the time - enjoy the occasional cheeseburger. Pure Fare is not about confining you to a rigid set of rules, but our goal is to empower you towards a healthier lifestyle. Life without the occasional cheeseburger just wouldn't be fair.
How can I redeem my Pure Fare badges for rewards and other good stuff?
Once you accumulate enough badges, Pure Fare will automatically send you notification of your reward. You can redeem the reward through our online platform or in store. The more you utilize Pure Fare's My Fare service (through eating @ Pure Fare, logging your foods + exercises) the more rewards you can earn!
We will continually add rewards and incentives to our platform to help incentivize you and keep you informed, motivated and healthy.
How do I know what option to choose for my Activity Level (PAL)?
For most people, your PAL (Physical Activity Level) will correspond to "Very Light Activity". This represents an approximate PAL of 1.2. You can also enter in the minutes performed of specific exercises.
