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.
This sounds like
$user->health data from what you describe. So you could create a new model/migration/table to store these fields.
However, they seem to be in 1:1 relation to the User model, so without loss of generality, why bother? You may as well just store them directly on the User model, and
php artisan migrate:refresh to rebuild the representation.
This way, you will be able to access all these user-properties, directly from the user-model, as you expect:
$user->gender $user->height ...
