Eat the same thing every day for a week? 1/5
They have very limited options, no ability to check off allergies, and they want you to eat the same thing every single day with some of their preloaded plans. No thank!
No PESCATARIAN diets 3/5
By Meal app
If this app would have something for pescatarian individuals I would rate it higher but they seemed to forget that some people don’t eat meat. Unfortunately I have to delete this app since they can’t cater to me
Great App 4/5
I think this is a great app for beginners meal preppers. It’s easy to use and allows for flexibility in prepping. The only thing I would add is an allergy option. I have allergies to tree nuts and lots of fruit. So, a large number of the recipes I cannot use or mess with the recipe to make safe for me. If this was added it’d be an awesome app.
Very easy to use! The meals are delicious and I lost 7 lbs the first week using the shred fat and following Amanda’s plan (of course in addition to working out.) I’ve already recommended this app to my mom and aunt who enjoy using this as well. If you could implement a weigh in feature in the future, that would be awesome! Thank you
I sent an email for help and never heard back. My macros changed each week and that makes no sense. Also, the food was so much extra work. Good concept but needs work.
Easy to use but not perfect 4/5
I really like that you can see videos of the recipes, add the ingredients to a grocery list tab, and see how much fiber/sugar/protein you are taking in with each meal. I’ve tried a few recipes and they have been simple to follow along. However there was one recipe I tried (Keto stuffed peppers) that had me cut up the tops of the peppers but didn’t explain what to do with them. Little things like that. But I recommend at least trying out the free trial and seeing what works for you. It would be great if there was a way we could provide feedback in the app about the recipe.
This app was a waste of $50 for me, and as a student I couldnt really afford to flush that money. I bought the annual membership of $49 outright, but was still put through a 7 day free trial that showed me features I would not have when my actually subscribed kicked in. There is no explanation as to what features you get within each price point (or none that I could see). Once my 7 day free trial was up I could no longer access ANY recipes with the mebership I paid for, not a single section. I immediately canceled only to find out I could not be refunded for my purchase as I did not cancel within 48 hours, because I was put through a 7 day free trial showing me lovely features I would not get when it came time for me to pay. This app needs way better explanation of pricing.
Ok, but not what I was expecting.... 2/5
As a diabetic I looking for a Keto meal plan or something more aligned for diabetes. Although the offer some Keto recipes, there is not a meal plan. The meal plans I have reviewed are higher in crabs and will not work for me.
“Free trial” isn’t so free 1/5
I got charged for a month even though I canceled during free trial. I think I canceled it a day after downloading it. So annoying and ridiculous.
No proofreading 1/5
Almost impossible to use without double or triple checking the ingredients and recipes first. Not sure how these people uploaded their recipes, but ingredients almost never match the recipe. I really regret paying for this app, because it has been more of an inconvenience than anything else.
App charged me an annual subscription 1/5
The app gives you a free week trial. Before the week was over I cancelled subscription and on my bank statement I received an $89.00 charge, this was an annual charge. I reached out to the app contact and apple and never received a reply back. Very disappointing due to some of my favorite fitness people being associated with it.
Great recipes but no consistency 3/5
So far I like the recipes but the serving sizes for the recipes are very inconsistent. I tried to reduce some of the serving sizes to 1 serving and the measurements were very off. This needs to be clear for all recipes. It would be nice if this was explained in all the recipes and accounted for the week long plan. Very hard to food prep for a week with unclear serving sizes.
Used to be good 2/5
I used to enjoy this app but it’s changed. Tried to restore my original purchase back when the app first came out and it won’t let me. Now I’d have to pay $50 annually and I’d rather not do I’m deleting the app. There’s better out there
This app is a waste of money 1/5
By also hate it
I got this app specifically to do a keto/Paleo diet and they don’t even offer any options for that and they charge me for a whole year subscription for something that I did not even want and I tried to cancel and they wouldn’t even work with me just bypassed his app is a piece
Love it! 5/5
This app offers a lot of different recipes! Love the app and the amount of time it saves me.
Not what I thought I was paying for 1/5
I purchased a trial of this and the sister app Fitplan. I thought I was getting a year of both after the free trial and it turns out I only got this one. I was very disappointed as I like the Fitplan more than this app.
Excellent way to get on track with your eating habits. 5/5
They have great and easy to follow recipes. It’s also great that they have many different trainers or experts that you can follow to help you meet your goal. You do have to pay a membership for some areas, butt worth it.
This app is perfect. And for those complaining about the same meals throughout the week, you can replace them with the meal of your choice. I like that you can add the ingredients to a super grocery list! Make shopping a lot easier. Totally worth the $10 a month subscription
Free trial. 1/5
I had a free trial and even when I cancelled it, you charged me with the 89.99 plan.
I need an answer and my money back. There is no phone number or email to contact you.
Add a print option to print the recipes!!!!
Billed for subscription I had canceled 1/5
By Clayton Peter
I was still billed even though I had canceled the subscription within their 24 hour stated policy. Vendor does not provide any confirmation of subscription cancellation. Only used the app 1 time to see what it was like, meals were limited, still billed even after I canceled the subscription.
Not accurate 3/5
So I like the concept and love the idea but I found inaccuracies. For example, Amanda’s antioxidant shake is the same as cam’s athletic greens shake, it has identical ingredients and the calories are 466 and 230 respectively. The 466 is inaccurate, and for someone who is depending on this accuracy it’s hard to trust now. Also the chicken soup calls for chicken broth in the video but in the grocery items it says water and not broth. And ingredients are missing. So when I went to the grocery and bought the items I realized upon watching the video I was missing items. These inaccuracies makes customers distrust the product and wish that there was a QA on this app who would double triple check the ingredients, calories, and portion count to be accurate.
Good ads but no so good experience 1/5
I was interested after seeing the ads. But the app feels dated and clunky. The meals are the same everyday. Not worth paying for it.
It’s all about getting you to forget 1/5
I used the app on trial for a day and then decided I didn’t want to use it and forgot about it. I should’ve cancelled there. Two weeks later, I was charged for an entire year. It didn’t throw me on monthly renewal or anything, they charged me for the maximum they could and now “my refund request does not meet” their criteria.
Easy to follow and effective! 5/5
I’ve really enjoyed this meal prep app! It makes it super easy to reach your macro numbers while offering ideas for foods, recipes, and how-tos!
Not vegan 1/5
I was excited when I saw the "vegan" meal plan option; however, they aren't actually vegan at all. Vegan means no animal products at all, and their "vegan" recipes still include eggs and dairy. Let down for sure.
I don’t recommend it 1/5
I bought the app and I stop using for a few months now that I’m back to try recipes everything is lock because I have to pay for everything.. not good!!!
Great app! 5/5
For someone who loves to cook but struggles to find healthy variations or lacks knowledge to be creative while still eating healthy. I absolutely love the macros that are included and how you can modify any recipe to adjust for number of servings. Also neat that you can transfer items from a recipe (all or select ingredients) to a grocery list. Only recommendation is to adjust macros for removed items.
Double payment 5/5
So in the beginning to get this app you could only buy it. Which I did
And now i am seeing all recipes blocked because I need to pay monthly again
What kind of trick is this?
pretty good 3/5
This app is pretty good, but I have some complaints.
1. some ingredient lists and/or the recipe are missing items. for example, the recipe won’t call for eggs, then the directions say “add eggs.” okay... how many? are the macros still correct?
2. WHY CANT WE IMPORT TO MYFITNESSPAL
3. grocery list imports are faulty. some recipes are designed to last the week, some are for one meal. because one of my “snack” preps was for the week, I ended up accidentally buying 30 pounds of carrots.
Best meal prep planner 5/5
I’ve been using this app since the new release and I’ve had the opportunity to try meals by all the trainers and they all have been phenomenal! I have found unique and awesome ways to make food more natural and healthy and have learned sooo much about preparing food in a better way and super tasty recipes that don’t leave me feeling gross like processed food does. I look forward to my meals and having control over what I put in my body!
I got this app and was super excited to start meal prepping and get my nutrition on track. I’m a vegan and saw they had vegan options which I thought was cool but some of the recipes contained diary or egg and for the grocery list didn’t say how much I needed to buy to just canned black beans so I looked on the recipe and it says 3 black beans what is that suppose to mean among other things this app isn’t worth it and needs a lot of improvement
Recipe app 3/5
The app was fairly easy to coordinate. I think for what it offers you can find the same things for free online or through other apps. It basically felt like an app for recipes. Not so much a meal plan guide to follow.
Thank you so much for having this meal plan app as an option. I have for years needed something like this to follow that is reasonably priced as well. I love that you can use several recipes and mix and match. Thanks meal plan app!!!
LOVE this app, so helpful! 4/5
By It's me, Jess
I LOVE this app! I love having all my meals prepared for the week and they are delicious 😋. Only issue is that sometimes things don’t match up; ex. Black bean burger but, no black beans on the grocery list 🤷🏼♀️. I’ve come across this a few times now, really my only issue with the app. I just thoroughly look over every recipe before I go shopping.
Has the potential to be great! 3/5
I like the fact that I am learning to cook healthy food however, the recipes are not accurate. For example, the ingredient list for some of the recipes do not match the ingredients on the directions to prepare it. Also, measurements on some items listed are off... for example, instead of listing 1 banana it will say 1 tbsp of banana..... This app has the potential to be exceptional if someone at Mealplan would just go over the recipes and check for accuracy.
Waste of time and money 1/5
Googling ‘meal plan’ or ‘meal prep’ gives you better and more accurate information than this app. Haphazardly put together, this app is clunky to navigate and gives contradictory information. Not worth your time or money if you have even the slightest idea how to cook chicken or steam vegetables - that’s as creative as these recipes get.
App needs improvement 3/5
I like the meal plans, but the app needs improvement. I’ve only done 1 week and have already noticed that recipes are wrong. Too many typos. It’s also annoying that they don’t tell you how much a serving size is. I made an entire batch of paleo muffins, but not sure how many to eat each day. Two seemed reasonable, but it still annoyed me.
Great app! 4/5
I recently bought the app- I thought it was very affordable considering the content we get! I love the meal plans and “add to grocery list feature” - very helpful!! I also love the “Sweets” category, as that’s where I struggle the most!
One criticism - some of the recipes don’t have complete ingredient lists. For example, the instructions will say to add the eggs but no eggs are mentioned in the ingredient list. Apart from those inconsistencies, the app is great!
Good idea, but needs work. 3/5
I just want to start off by saying that I am by no means trying to dog this app I am simply giving my honest opinion about it and what I think would help improve it.
One thing that I do not like about this app is that when you generate a meal plan the meals are the same every day. I understand that this might be the case if you were looking to meal prep, but it would be nice if there was an option to have different meals every day or at least some variation.
This app is very visually appealing in my opinion and has a very high potential to be really good. It is nice that they have different nutrition specialist so that you have different styles of foods based on a specific trainer. It is also convenient that they generate your calories and macro nutrients based on your personal goals along with weight, height, age, and activity. There is also a good amount of recipes available if you look in the recipes tab of the app.
To wrap things up I would say that currently this app is not worth the $9.99 a month subscription unless you are looking to meal plan and eat the same meals every day for a week. I think that if they make the option available where you can chose to have more variation in your meals day to day then it would totally be worth the $9.99 subscription.
Buy it! 5/5
Love this app! You can select your serving size for 1 or 10. Shows your macros. The recipes I’ve tried are delicious! Well worth the money.
Persistent Error Message - poor tech support 1/5
Purchased the plan, couldn’t log in due to repeated error messages. Emailed customer support, took forever to respond and when they did they recommended closing the app and reopening it....although in my original email I stated I did that already without success. Send another email advising of the same and still havent received a response. Save your money.
Needs variety 3/5
Everything about this app is great!! But for the price that your paying for a subscription there is no variety in the pre made meal plans. Eating the same thing 7 days a week would drive anyone to have cravings.
No follow up 1/5
By Lil momma!
Not satisfied at all. Meals had errors and when asked for clarification received no response, when I asked the recipe owner themselves I received bs answers like applause hands and “no need to thank me” when no thanks were given and questions were asked. Nutrition info is off especially on proteins! Serving sizes aren’t always clear either. I feel like this was rushed to release! I want my $$$ back!
Amazing app that helped me easily track macros 5/5
This app is a game changer. I used to count my calories but my macros were out of whack because I was making quick on the go meals. Once I started using meal plan app, my calorie tier was the same but I was getting specific meal prep meals to make that hit my macros exactly where they need to be. I’m slimming down and toning without lowering my calorie intake from this app. Thank you mealplan_app! I’m on Michelle Lewin’s vegetarian plan! 🙏🏼
Best app for meal planning! 5/5
I absolutely love this app. Whenever I would do meal prepping I end up getting so bored that by day 3 I throw out the remainder of my food. This app has awesome recipes that span the week that are both healthy and easy to prepare. Mason Jar salads? Yes please! I also love that I can choose my macros based on my goals, whether I want to lose weight, maintain or put on muscle. This app will be a mainstay in my life for a long time!
Awesome app! 5/5
I recently subscribed to Mealplan app and am really loving it so far! There’s plenty of recipes to keep your clean eating fun, interesting and never boring. There’s also ways to customize your plans based on your preferences, which helps a ton for a picky eater like myself. I’m excited to report back after using the app for a couple of months, but so far this is off to a great start!
Incredible Nutrition App 5/5
I love Mealplan because it takes the guess work out of my grocery shopping and meal prepping for the week. Less excuses to just say “screw it” and order takeout. It helps you eat cleaner and save money. I love Jen and Amanda’s recipes. Hope they add more! Great app, great price.
Ridiculous amounts of charges 1/5
When I first got this app it was a 3.99 purchase with access to a bunch of recipes. But now you have to buy a subscription?? That seems a bit ridiculous to me. Either they should make it free and have a subscription (in that case i would like a refund) OR they should charge 3.99 and have access to the whole thing.
