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.
Please make this a priority soon. I need to be able to make certain days during the week have higher macros.

Yes! This is a huge thing for me with my clients. I need to be able to add in high/low days and different macros for different days of the week. Are they looking into this one yet?
Brent Ciaverilla commented
Looking to be able to build clients daily macros. Hence if we put them on a carb cycle, or certain days are just different. Rather then only giving them one set of macro goals. Would make it easier for the coaches to track and the clients to know what days are bringing in what amounts.

Refeed Days are growing in popularity. Have two sets of macro goals would help tremendously
I usually only set calorie and protein goals for many clients, but being able to have higher cals on some days and lower cals on another day would be helpful.

Allow trainer to set client multiple calorie goals for different days of the week/calorie cycling.

Is this a thing yet? It should be.

Having the ability to have two - three macro goals for clients who have high and low days around training.

Would be so helpful to be able to assign different macros on different days (I.e. training days vs rest days, carb cycling, re-feeds)
Erin Phillips commented
Can someone from Trainerize acknowledge this request & let us know if it's in development? Would be hugely beneficial. Thanks!

This would be perfect for carb cycling or putting clients in a recomp.

When I program a calorie goal for clients I tend to give them moderate calorie days and a few higher-calorie days which they will hit on a weekend to give them a bit more flexibility or they can use the higher calorie days on their more difficult training days.
It would be nice to have the ability to set a calorie and protein target for a set amount of days rather than it being for the full week.
A nutrition protocol tab could be a good idea. We could program the client their moderate and high-calorie days, give them macro targets and then put a description underneath to provide any additional information and explain why we have set these targets.

Also ability to automate macros for when a client is reverse dieting their macros change every 1-2 weeks

Split Macros: REFEED DAYS - DIET BREAKS - etc

I use Calorie Cycling and/or weekly re-feed days with my Nutrition clients regularly so would love to see the ability to set different nutrition targets for different days of the week (eg. Sun-Thurs = Target range X; Fri-Sat = Target range Y....or Sun-Fri = A; Saturday = B etc.)
MyFitness Pal is able to accommodate these different targets, so the clients can set correctly according to my recommendations in MFP but I can only have the one nutrition goal set in their Trainerize profile so Compliance isn't truly accurate?

I would love to carb cycle clients but it's difficult when im limited to one set calorie/macro layout. Ability to implement more than one and label each (i.e. leg day, rest day, etc.) would be great.
Lachlan Moore commented
Rather than just having a daily calorie allowance, having a nutritional calendar which can allow for high / low calories days will provide greater flexibility when prescribing a nutrition program.
By scheduling in high / low days it provides the option of a more customisable experience for the client.
E.g. 5 low days during the week, 2 high days on the weekend.
