Add additional user data

Posted 11 months ago by mdk999

I'd like to add additional user data (Gender, height, weight, age, etc). I know I can extend the user model and add additional fields but not sure this is the best place for this data. I will probably need to get this information when accessing $user (ie $user->height). Suggestions on doing this? Thanks.
