Quick food add. Right now you have to add a food with a two step process. First you click on the food type, for example "proteins", then you select the actual food. Although this is great for guiding people nutritionally it can be frustrating when you know exactly what you want to add. Now you will just be able to start typing "bea ..." when you want to add beans and you will see all the beans available!
Cheat Meals. If you are cutting and losing fat, a planned cheat meal every week can help you from feeling deprived and help prevent binges. To be successful in achieving your fat loss goal though, it is very important though that this cheat meal be integrated into your meal plan for the day. Although on a day of a cheat meal you may not run a caloric deficit, you must trim back your other meals to that you do not run a caloric surplus for the day. You can add a custom cheat meal using standard fast food or restaurant items like "Big Mac", "Domino's 14" cheese pizza". Then it is easy to create a meal plan for the day that leaves you satisfied but not feeling guilty.
