Setting up your diet: Building Meals

Because this is a coaching app and not a tracking app, this feature of the RP Diet Coach app is for planning purposes, and not for tracking. This means that the meals are of what is recommended, and not of what was actually consumed. The meals are still tracked via the check-in function of the app. Please see our meal check-in article: How meal check-ins work

We recommend that you please choose the number of meals you’d like to eat on a specific day of the week. 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 meals per day are all effective strategies and the difference in your results from choosing any one of them will be very minimal. The most important factor in which one you pick should be convenience and sustainability. 

Meal Building Tutorial: 

Note: When the option of raw/cooked is not listed, all measurements are in the raw state. 

The RP Diet Coach app also has a built-in expanded food library which has around 700k foods. You may search for the item by name, or simply scan a bar code to bring the item up. These items can be mix and matched with basic foods lists, but for success we recommend that around 80% of the foods you eat are coming from the basic foods list. 

The RP Diet Coach app has a feature that allows users to add any foods right into the app. This would be perfect for foods missing from our database, or any of your favorite recipes.  

Please check out the following tutorial for a step-by step guide on applying saved combos to future meals. 



Note: The RP Diet Coach app counts carbs as total carbohydrates minus fiber. Please check out this article. How does the app count carbs?
