How to Get Low Calorie Meal Ideas

The meal planner is accessed through the Food Diary tab from your homepage.  Simply click and go to the Food Ideas section and click on Meal Ideas.

You just need to select your meal from the options (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snacks) and set the number of calories that you would like, either with the slider or by input directly into the calories field.

You’ll be given a number of alternatives, and if you don’t fancy any of them, you just need to click on the ‘more’ button and you’ll get all of the alternatives.

Just pick the one that you would like and click on ‘Add to Diary’, it’s as easy as that!  You can then add your meal to a plan for the day and create a shopping list, so you can make sure you’ve got everything in that you need.
