Ability to add custom foods to the in-app meal tracker database
Similar to MyFitnessPal, be able to add custom food item like a branded supplements.
Thanks for this suggestion.
This has been added to our work queue. We’ll post a further update when this idea has been started.
Thanks and please come back to vote for more ideas at ideas.trainerize.com.

This would be very beneficial for myself and my clients, the recipes at the moment are very american and my clients are not getting on well with them. They are mostly using my recipes and imputting the data into the app, it would save a LOT of time and effort for them if we are able to intergrate our own recipes.

1. Be able to set custom macros for the clients meal plan
2. Be able to upload custom meals; Videos, pictures, and instructions (like we can with workouts)
3. Be able to schedule different macro or caloric splits throughout the week, for trainers who utilize tools like intermittent fasting, carb cycling, etc.
These requests are essential for an "Advanced" meal plan, so that coaches can create truly custom meal plan recommendations for their clients.
The advanced meal planner should serve as a means to calculate and organize meal option templates, while allowing trainers the freedom and flexibility to collaborate with their clients on serving their specific needs.
-- especially for an asking price of an additional $45/mos on the trainers part -- this application should allow trainers to give completely custom and honest recommendations, rather than the current cookie cutter options.

When did the meal tracker roll out?
Brent Phillips commented
really hope this update and others to make it more comparable to MFP comes soon because once this application is fully rolled out it will be a game changer! Everything all in one place! Please add me to the beta testing when it gets rolled out!

This will be huge.
For instance, our market is Asia. There are a lot of foods specific to the community that get consumed regularly which are not in the trainerize database already. We can preload these in the app so all our customers can benefit from it

We would love to be able to preload “meals” from our client cookbook into the clients meals library right away. That way they don’t have to add them theirselves.

Ability to create custom foods and share those with my clients! Instead of just each client creating their own custom foods.

Adding my custom meal into the app database so other people can access it. Given that the nutrient content entered is from proven resources like for me I used Malaysia Food Composition Table.
The reason for this feature is to reduce confusion for my client as to which meal to choose from when they keyed in their meal. Also I can help them entered the nutrient content for food that is not in the database. I can insert my initial in the meal name that I entered through the custom meal,and my client can easily search for it.

If you create a custom food it will be usefull to share that custom food with your client. That way clients who are not use to know macronutrient especifications can just use the one created of shared. Or the ability to let the trainer update the Food Data Base so the custom foods created can be shared with anyone.

Brands yes! but only one version, the correct nutrition data from the nutrition label! wouldn't want it to get messy like my fitness pal is currently with so many versions of one food that you have to validate it by checking website for the real macros and calories.
