    • Note: when this filter is toggled off– swapped meals can overshoot or undershoot a client's set caloric goal.

Note: Custom meals can only be manually swapped into a client's meal plan. If you would like to regenerate your client's meal plan, you must do so before swapping in custom meals or you will need to repeat this process.
