Have different daily macro goals for different days or workout / non-workout days for carb cycling
I do a lot of competition prep and within prepping meal plans. It would be great to set up different macro and calorie intake goals for different days out of the week. Because it would allow my clients to fully understand carb cycling. For now I have uploaded a pdf version of the meal plan showing that but would be great if that can be adjusted as well when it comes to programming it within your platform.
Thanks for your great suggestion! We've added this to our work queue/raodmap. We'll post further updates here as our teams pick it up to work on it.
Please come back to ideas.trainerize.com to add your vote to other ideas.

This is so important in my opinion. Being able to set low carb high carb days. More calories on weekends etc. this surely would be top priority for client compliance? Any updates? Thanks.

Hi Trainerize team!
I highly suggest we make the ability to set different macros for different days for our clients.
I was able to have some clients switch over to the in app meal tracker, which they loved, but then asked to switch back to MFP because they couldn't set different macro targets.
This would be a HUGE win for all of our clients and would also so incredibly helpful for us coaches.
I feel like I may actually be willing to BEG for this to be bumped to the top of your priority list, as it would knock out MFP and also help us to retain clients on our app.

What's the status on this feature being added?
Currently, I'm not using Trainerize for macros with any client I have on a carb cycle due to this missing feature. I've been having them fill out a spreadsheet instead.
It would be great if I could have all my clients log their nutrition in here - even those that have different macros on different days.

is there any update on this one ?

I would like to be able to set different calorie goals for different days for clients. Some who need higher food goals on workout days

A flexibility in building the plan from day to another based on the training, so I can give one day 1500 calorie with 3 meals and 1 snack and the other day its 2000 calorie with 4 meals and 2 snacks

Please add this feature asap, this would really help me add refeed days into a client's nutrition program, which are essiential for continual weight loss. Plus a lot of my weight loss clients just prefer to eat less on the weekends so they have more calories available on the weekends. Currently I get my clients to use other nutrition tracking apps like MFP because you don't have this feature, but if you added this feature I would get ALL my clients to track their calories via Trainerize.

Hey, I prescribe some of my clients high and low calorie days, whether they're training or doing a Refeed on the weekend. It would be good to include this so the meal plan is not the same calorie allowance throughout.
Allow to assign different calorie goals for different days - ie rest days / training days
Russell Smith commented
I practice Calorie Cycling with my client's and need to be able to set high/low days rather than a fixed calorie goal every day
Can't believe this has been ignored completely. No status applied to it at all either.
It's actually fundamental to setting macro targets. Also, if you want to change macros from a certain date you have to set reminders for yourself to do so on the day.
It's quite a basic but important feature

Allow nutrition targets to be set different for each day of the week. Most of my clients prefer less calories MON-FRI and more calories at the weekend. Sometimes training days require more calories than non-training days. Currently theres only the option to have calories same all week. This makes it harder for them to stay on track.

I don’t understand how this is still not even being responded too
Walter Chambers commented
This is CRITICAL and should have been implemented years ago when the suggestion was posted... Trainerize currently has the ability to set single day calorie/macronutrient goals and the solution is as simple as implementing the workout/habit scheduling system that's already been integrated into the software.
Arlene Arellano commented
Will this ever get done? With the amount of votes would think this is escalated in the work queue.
Katrina Owen commented
Set different calorie and macro targets on specific days for carb cycling or refeeds
Kim Ast commented
AGREED! I have clients who do less calories on weekdays, more on weekends. nd clients who eat more on training days and less on non training days. being able to have different calories on different days of the week would be very helpful!
Robell Opilas commented
This needs to be added ASAP! Please and Thank you!!!
Jack Symons commented
Is there an update on this as a feature. Having to manually add them in the calendar is messy and slow
Michael Davis commented
The ability to schedule a bump or drop in calories on a specific day. I do re-feeds on the weekends with several clients; so, it would be awesome to be able to go into their calendar and schedule a day for calories to increase/decrease.
