Expected More 1/5
While the recipes itself are good, I’m not impressed with the interface. I literally need to confirm every meal in a day to get the grocery list. Also, there’s no option to select how much repetition you want etc. there’s no way I have the time to prepare something different every single day. I’d have really liked the option to meal prep. Also there’s no search function within the recipes? This effectively means I can’t substitute meals based on ingredients I have. I literally have to scroll through every recipe to find something that interests me. Also there’s no option to swap the meal itself, other than from the 3 provided options. For example, I wanted to choose the previous days dinner for the next day too, however there’s no option to do that. The app is nothing but a glorified recipe book.
I love in a place where I cannot get some of the odd ingredients in these recipes even though I would like to. It would be nice if one of the three options every meal had very simple ingredients.
Not intuitive 1/5
While I enjoy many of the recipes, the site severely lacks organization. It is difficult to manage shopping lists and the recipe layout based on meal type is scattered and unhelpful.
Difficult to follow 1/5
The meals are difficult to follow. When I am doing a recipe in the book, the phone screen turns off so I have to re-enter my password to view the recipe. Also, the journal isn’t user friendly.
Healthy options and portions 4/5
The nutrition app is pretty good. It provides options for each meal and allows you to add the items to your grocery list. It also can lookup other recipes available based on your grocery list. The one thing I wish it had was the ability to filter the recipes based on ingredients. This would be extremely helpful for people with food allergies.
Good App. Needs Allergens 4/5
I personally love this app. The recipes are so good and for people who don’t want to pay there is a lot to offer. However as someone who cooks for people with allergens, in the preference section there is no option to see what is safe. You can do it manually but i feel like this shouldn’t really be an issue. Anyway this is a great app, and that’s my only concern with it
Doesn’t help with planning ahead 2/5
To be successful I need to visualize the meals that I’ve selected for the week. While the app allows you to make a grocery list...I need to be able to save the recipes I selected for each day to know how to plan that day! 😞 I love the workout app but this nutrition one needs work pronto for better planning. I feel like I’m not going to be successful without the menu/nutrition portion working out. Guess I will find another plan that’s more intuitive. Money wasted.
Needs a reset option 3/5
I haven’t used the app in months and I don’t like seeing that I haven’t been following the diet in 21 weeks. Please add a reset feature that lets me restart from week 1. It’s a lot more motivating that way.
Not good for vegan 1/5
The app has filters for food restrictions but the vegan filter pulls back recipes with milk, egg, cheese and other dairy.
Tasty recipes and easy to follow 4/5
For a man who doesn’t cook much, I’ve been able to make some tasty meals. Plus I’m eating healthy food that are new to me; foods that are going to help me get strong.
Good app if you’re committed! 4/5
So far, so good. The recipes are delicious and ensure that you are full at the end. I wish there were more options for individuals who don’t like eggs. : (
You do have to be organized about what you are planning on eating. Definitely not for someone who wants to eat as normal but track - you have to stick to the food plan.
I like the shopping list feature. Could be made better if the app showed you what you picked - I had to write my daily picks down in order to see which meals I prepped were for which days.
Overall...very satisfied 4/5
Good app with fun recipes. I like how you can pick and the recipe ingredients show up in a shopping list.
My critique would be to section the items out so that they are categories for meats and poultry, veggies, condiments/herbs/spices, etc. this makes shopping easier so that you know what to get when you need at. As of now, ingredients are added based on recipes. For example ingredients for spicy shrimp salad show up together, and then next selected recipe for green lentil salad show.
Also, I’m not sure if I should be picking small, medium, or large recipes or if my “coach” will do that. Thoughts?
All in all, I like this app
Doesn’t cater to vegans 1/5
I recently started the Freeletics body weight program and am so far enjoying it. In the subscription I got, it included the nutrition coach. I am a vegan, and though I can omit recipes that contain meat, the recipes I am given do not cater to people who avoid animal byproducts. Please add vegan recipients, I truly believe this can be a great app!
app is free to download, but you must pay per week for their service. They tell you this after you had already set up account, confirmed email and logged in for this first time.
I Absolutely Love It 5/5
By Fit Bri
I am a Louisiana Cajun girl at heart that loves to be able to taste the different seasonings in food so I was very hesitant in purchasing the nutrition coach with the Freeletics Bodyweight portion that I’m doing. But I was like hey I can at least try for 3 months because I was in need of a drastic lifestyle change. I was then very hesitant in actually doing it because some of the recipes for my day 1 looked disgusting honestly but I went with it. I am currently on week 3 and I absolutely love it. I’ve only come across 1 recipe that I just didn’t like out of the 20 recipes I have tried. They give you 3 different recipes for each of the 4 parts of the day so you have 12 different recipes you can eat for that day. I love the versatility of the recipes and you can tell that they are specifically tailored towards your goals because they are categorized based on different things. They recipes are also pretty easy to make and really delicious. As far as shopping goes you get to choose which recipes you are going to make for the week by adding that recipe to your shopping list and then it compiles a whole list together. I do like that but it can use a few tweaks such as compiling the list in order of dairy, produce, etc.but it has been pretty easy to shop because it gives you how much you need of each as well. I am looking forward to the lactose intolerant version because a lot of the recipes require a lot of dairy (cottage cheese, quark, yogurt, milk) but so far I have been able to handle it by just substituting the milk with almond milk and only choosing the recipes with dairy least often because I am partially intolerant. But overall I love it.
If you want a recipe book...that’s what it is. 1/5
That’s all the “coach” is.... unlocking the recipes that are locked. The only personalized thing is the meat protein you don’t eat, your weight, height, age and region. I still haven’t seen the 7 day plan, just one new suggestion every day of 3 recipes for each meal. No ingredients substitutes unless in the milk and yogurt area. It does not take in consideration any personal tastes. “Tailored for you” is a huge stretch. There’s no real coach behind it. Probably just an algorithm. And you get a few messages every day. You can’t even pick and chose the meals from the suggestions and to your “day”, for exemple. You can only click on ‘I cooked this” and you get a star. How cute! Or put in your shopping list. I am not saying it doesn’t work. They are just not ver forthcoming about what it really is. Customer service offered me a refund, but I have to contact iTunes for that, which is proving very unsuccessful so far. They should refund it themselves!
Could be great! 2/5
By ber is the word
Most of the recipes sound great but I have food restrictions that aren’t available to add in the restrictions portion. I don’t eat beans and I’m gluten free, it seems like most of these have one or the other.
This is NOT a nutrition tracker!!! 1/5
By Onesimus 42
This is a recipe book. I don’t want any of their recipes. I was under the impression this was a nutrition guide and tracker. It wouldn’t be bad to INCLUDE recipes, but if you want follow this get ready to shopping, start cooking, for every single meal.
Just recipes 2/5
I am a vegetarian allergic to soy. I have a diet that isn’t unhealthy but could use a little clean up. I wish I knew this how the nutrition app worked before I bought the plan. It is just a collection of recipes iterated ~ doesn’t help those who already have a custom diet. The recipes are tasty though.
Here's the deal. 4/5
great app and well designed. 4 stars only because some of the recipes are a bit beyond my PB& J capabilities. Very worldly and wonderful new flavors to try but be aware there's some real cooking involved and the grocery trips will add up
By marissa is fab
my coach DOESNT EVEN WORK. all i get is a “connection doesn’t work” and i’m at home with wifi. i literally payed for something that doesn’t work.
By Noah Manns
Workout app is great, the nutrition is useless. No option to add your own recipes, say toast with peanut butter, so you’re forced to either only eat their complicated food or have inaccurate results (: would not recommend.
Not a lot of flexibility/ practicality 3/5
The shopping list needs to be divided into grocery store sections (produce, dairy, etc)
The meals are okay but the option to meal plan for the week (ie making a meal 3x a week or something would be good.
It has few variety of food
Love the app and the new updates! 5/5
By Bananaland noon-30
This app is great for getting me in the mindset of clean eating. I love the updates is recently made to its "Recipes" tab. Is there anyway a feature could be added to search by a certain ingredient? That way, I can make recipes based on what I already have instead of spending money when I don't need to!
Bad app. Don't fall for fake reviews. 1/5
By VoIP God
The recipes taste terrible. The app itself is very poorly organized to the point where it is unusable for its purpose. They say they'll charge you a couple dollars a week, yet hit you with a year long subscription for over $100. There are much better apps than this. Don't waste your time here
This app is useless the recipes are disgusting!
High potential, low usability, degrading quality 3/5
The quality of this app is constantly degrading and features dont seem to improve. Every time they make a release, a ton of features get broken.
if you still care to improve the app:
1. Integration with other freeletics apps and iPhone's health app. That should automate tracking of activity and body measurement reading.
2. ability to add shopping items individually
3. Offline access to meal plans, like for the coming week
4. Ability to sort shopping list by alphabet, item type or other metrices
5. Ability for users to mark meals for cooking from recommendations. I frequently find myself unsure of what i previously decided to cook for a certain day.
6. Subscription is pricey. Consider adjusting price.
I'm broke 1/5
I'm tired of trying to use these apps to try and be healthy but you just end up having to pay monthly to use most of the features
Not free 2/5
By JOHN CEEENAAA
You have to buy a coach for $30+ to actually do anything.
Awesome recipes just need a more on the go style 3/5
I love the recipes in this and I follow the guidelines I just wish that the recipes were more on the go friendly. My job has me on call and I don't have time to cook all four meals a day, sometimes I don't get home to cook at all. I cook the recipes as I can but most of the time I end up packing fruits and vegetables and eating those throughout the day. I would love suggestions on what would be best to eat as is if you can't cook because you're not home.
Unnavigable, unhelpful, and awful customer service 1/5
By Dissappointed Athlete
DO NOT GET UNLESS YOU WANT TO WASTE MONEY
The app itself is difficult to use. They charge a steep price for having poor organization
I also cancelled my subscription the day it auto renewed and they have refused to refund me. I'm not some wealthy person who can afford to have money disappear for no good reason. Their customer service team does not care as long as they have your money.
Do not buy. This community of athletes is actually just a good marketing team.
Good but yet another subscription 2/5
It's a good addition to the rest of the Freeletics apps but I think most people like myself won't find themselves using the coach functionality. I would prefer to see a free version with just the recipes for those who subsrcribe to the coach plan on one of the other apps. As it is right now I can't justify paying a monthly subscription for a recipe book, regardless of how helpful.
Great options for a healthy way to eat meals!! Exciting meals!!
Helps to be healthier 4/5
By Edson Grippa
This app teach and helps to have a healthier lifestyle
I love it. Makes dieting so much easier.
Must have if you're looking to lead a healthy life 5/5
I've been doing the Freeletics nutrition and workout plan for only a week now, but I can already tell that this app is going to be something that I'll be using for a very long time. If you're wanting to get in shape or stay in shape, this app will make it so much easier for you to reach your goal.
Need someone to help regarding any questions 5/5
Apps is absolutely awesome but one thing is I have some questions but I don't find where to ask and how iam going to get answers
Unable to change meal size or specific foods to avoid 3/5
This app does have some good ideas for recipes. However, I have a personal aversion to peppers and tofu, and I've been given four or five recipes for two days that have those in them. The only food preferences you can put are basically whether or not you're vegetarian, vegan, etc. Plus, it automatically decides what 'size' meal suits you best. I can tell you right now there's no way I'd be able to eat half of what it's giving me for each recipe.
By Nutrition Goal
This has program has been a great help since I learned how to cook healthy meals. I started a week ago, I lost 5 pounds. I couldn't believed it. The menus are simple and easy! I enjoyed it.
Totally changed my lifestyle 5/5
New Years resolution this year was to improve my nutrition. Couldn't have stuck to it without this app. Many of the recipes are quick, easy, and satisfying. Best of all, the coach eliminates the agonizing question of 'what's for dinner'. Highly recommend giving this a try if you're on the fence.
My problem with this is that you have to pay to get a coach. Other than that, I am fine with the app.
Great meals 5/5
Lots of great options for meals, have my choice of great recipes.
This is some of the best food I've ever eaten, and I feel full all day! I just started this week so I feel like I'm cooking a lot and always running to the grocery to grab missing ingredients, but I plan to get organized with everything this weekend so hopefully week 2 won't seem so hectic. But, like I said, the food is great plus I've already lost 6 lbs in 3 days so it is soooo worth it!!!
Wonderful App 4/5
It's only been a few days, but I love Freeletics! Great app, that is a legit substitute for expensive trainers and nutritionists. I do wish I could export my grocery list to Wegmans, Amazon Fresh, or some such grocer app, but not a big deal. Highly recommend.
Excellent Planning 5/5
The ability to meal prep and plan with this app is stellar.
BUY THE COACH 5/5
This app has been life changing. I bought the coach and it's really like a personal trainer. The new updates are great. I love the new recipes and how the workouts show what muscles are being targeted.
Great recipes, easy to use 4/5
The recipes in their database are both tasty and filling. It would be five stars if there was a way to coordinate the ingredients between one day and the next, or have a way to use one day's dinner leftovers as the next day's lunch.
No more guessing 5/5
I am pleasantly surprised at the way this program works! I don't have to wonder about what to eat! Thank you Freeletics
