Ability to take a quick meal photo for food journaling
Add a feature for clients to submit a photo of their meals to their trainer in a tab specifically for meal photos with time stamps. This way we can go into their profile, click on a meal photos tab, and see everything they've been eating, in order, with dates and times. This will help insure they are sticking to their meal plan and serving sizes and is an easy way to manage client adherence. Thanks!!!

If a client is following portion guidelines it would be really helpful to see they are hitting them through a visual food diary. If some how this could be separate from the messenger it would allow records of their food to be logged clearly.
Could include some multiple choice questions when uploading too, eg...
How much of this meal did you eat?
How did you feel after this meal
- Too full
When did you eat?
I wonder what exactly “started” means? Because I notice other tags that sound similar so now I’m wondering how if the devs are literally working on it now or it’s in an “idea chamber” with management or something?
I LOVE this idea. Almost left Trainerize for this very idea but the other features just didn't measure up so...I stayed. But many of my clients just starting off would benefit massively because this is just so simple, they don't have to add on food logging as a habit right away, but can focus on just moving and developing healthier choices and portions. We can work on the specifics later when they get other stuff down. (this includes specific calorie goals, macro goals etc.) so I like the option of doing either or both photo food logging and myfitnesspal logging
this would be excellent. Precision Nutrition has this with their PN Coaching app, and I had a few clients who would track every meal every day doing this. Would be awesome if Trainerize added!
This would be HUGE!
This would be very useful!
Imagine clients have a way to upload pics of their daily meals for accountability and closer monitoring by their trainer. Take a pic of your breakfast. Take a pic of your mid-day snack. Boom.

Please please please!!
This would be awesome!!
Would be great!!!
I would like to add a place for my clients to journal about food as part of integrating in intuitive eating. In general, I'd like them to be able to journal quickly about their workouts, so a totally new journal feature with the ability to tag a category (food, mood, workout etc.) would be super helpful. I want to be able to assign them questions that they then respond to.
Meal planning with meal photos

This is available now
This would be great. Trainerize would up their PT app game with others on the market like plankk. Plankk does have a good UI that allows clients to browse through meals, see recipes and pictures. Evolution is a pain because you're paying a separate fee and clients get a pdf and it isn't user friendly
I agree- this is huge!
Kind of like Plank app, a way we can select meals for our client’s, with recipes, grocery list and photo of the food.
Would be even better if we could incorporate our own food as well. Right now Evolution nutrition is too complicated.
There is an app out there right now that has the ability to tell people if there plates Have the proper portion control. I love my fitness pal but some people dread counting calories a number so would be great to have some thing or someone can visually see what 4 ounces of chicken or a half a cup of rice looks like and then maybe a scanner to help the person determine if it’s the right portion on the plate. Even just a visual aid of what 1 tablespoon of fat half a cup of rice or 4 ounces of chicken looks like would be a major advantage. Women who would rather deal with portion control versus numbers and another app it might be a great great addition
Also the ability for clients to scan their plate for proper “portion control”
Some clients hate macros and numbers but want to make sure there plate is balanced . That’s would be HUGE

Hive clients the option to track food via test or pictures in the app. An app "food diary" that doesnt rely on calorie tracking. Not all trainers and clients use calorie tracking but recording meals and portions is still important to ensure results. For lifestyle clients this would be a much more realistic approach.
