Custom meals (as well as custom foods) can only be added on the web, by a trainer in the Master Libraries section.
1. Under Master Libraries on the left, click Meals.
2. Click the NEW button at the top left of the screen.
3. In the pop-up dialogue, you will notice there are two sections: Meal details and Recipe. The first is Meal details. Here you will need to enter the Meal name, Meal Prep Time, and select what the meal is suitable for (breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack). The rest of the options are optional, but we recommend that you fill them out to better filter your meals as well as create an optimal experience for your clients.
4. The second section is Recipe. Here you will fill out the ingredient list as well as directions. For the Ingredients, you have two options. They are called:
- Auto-calculate mode
- Search for foods in the search bar and select the serving size. Calories and macros will be calculated for you based on the ingredient list.
- Manual mode
- Type up or copy and paste the ingredient list (1000 characters max). BUT, you will have to manually enter the calories and macronutrient split below the ingredients.
^ Example of Manual mode Ingredients.
^ Example of Auto-calculate mode Ingredients. Notice that you only have to enter the serving size, the rest of the information is auto calculated.
5. Directions can be entered step by step on the right side of the pop-up.
6. Click SAVE.
7. There you have it! A meal has been added to your Master Meals library. You can click on it to make edits or view the meal.
