Setting And Monitoring Client Nutrition Compliance
Trainerize will automatically measure your clients nutrition compliance and alert you when they are high achievers or need a little extra help with their nutrition plan.
By setting compliance levels for your clients, you'll be able to more effectively track weekly adherence for to the nutrition guides your give your clients. You'll also be able to evaluate whether the nutrition goals you've set for your clients are achievable by monitoring if clients are consistently missing or exceeding their compliance thresholds.
Nutrition compliance levels will be calculated for each client individually and will be dependant on whether they achieve their Daily Nutrition Goal. Each client can be assigned a nutrition variance percentage in their individual profiles.
Nutrition variance is basically how much "wiggle room" you want to give your client when it comes to their nutrition. For example: if you set the variance to 20%, if a client gets within 20% or better of their daily nutritional goal, then they’ve hit their goal for the day.
It's perfect for clients who struggle to hit their daily goals and need to be given a wider range to strive for as well as high-performance clients whose nutrition you want to really dial in.
Note: By default, all clients are set to 20% variance allowance.
How to edit the nutrition variance for a client

How to set nutrition compliance thresholds
Trainerize calculates a client's weekly nutrition compliance score based on the number of days a client achieves their daily nutrition goal. Learn how to adjust the nutrition compliance threshold.
Navigate to: Settings and click on Auto Client Tags
From here, adjust the compliance thresholds for nutrition by sliding the 2 little square icons left or right. The left square icon sets the threshold for low compliance, whereas the right square icon will be your threshold for high compliance. The bottom row of numbers denotes the 7 days of the week.
Keep in mind, these settings apply to your entire business and all your clients.
How to Use Client Tags to Manage Low and High Complaint Clients
Clients can be automatically tagged as "low compliance" if they don't track their nutrition and meet their calorie and macro targets based on the left slider. For example, in the image above clients will be tagged with "low nutrition compliance" if they are below three days of tracking with compliance for the goals you've set.
Likewise, clients can automatically be tagged with high compliance. In the image above, clients who track their nutrition and hit their targets 5 or more days a week will be automatically tagged with the "high nutrition compliance" tag.
