Fitness Coach Meal Planning Feature Updates Mobile App
We have made several updates to the iOS and Android apps lately including some to the Diet and Food List tabs. These fitness coach meal planning feature updates make it easier for coaches / dietitians to plan and create diets & meal plans. Here are the details of these changes – let us know what other changes you would like to see.
Adding Foods to Food List on the Fly
Previously, in order to add a new food that wasn’t already in their food list, coaches would need to go to their Food List tab. They would have to add the new food to their Food List. Only then, could they add it to a diet plan. We have now enabled adding foods with its macro info while adding it to a diet plan. Here is how:
- Click the Add Food button on the Add / Edit Diet screen like you would do for food that already existed.
- Click the “+” button in the upper right of the Food List menu (before this “+” button didn’t exist on this page.
- Enter the specific food details and macros and then hit the “Done” button. Your food will be added to your Food List and also added to the current meal plan you were editing.
Macro Nutrients Info Displayed while in Food List
To make meal planning easier we have now added macro-nutrient details to the food list. Coaches and clients can now save time while building meal plans with that information displayed right on the Food List. We also improved the display of foods with longer names.
