Get Started With Openfit Nutrition: Set Up Your Customized Meal Plan, Select Your Supplements, and More!Jul 20, 2021
How many times have you heard the saying “great results start in the kitchen?”
It’s true. However, knowing what to eat, how much to eat, and how to put it all together in a way that helps get you to your fitness and weight loss goals can be a challenge.
Openfit is here to help.
Our app makes it easy to get started with a healthy eating plan, including recipes that are personalized to your tastes and a food tracker to log your meals. Combine all that with our fun workouts and you’ll be well on your way to seeing serious results!
Here’s an overview of all the nutrition options on Openfit, from customized meal plans, to three weeks of cutting sugar, to protein powder.
One Min Meal Plan
It only takes one minute to set up your customized nutrition plan on Openfit. Just answer a few questions and we’ll provide you with simple, healthy menu options for each day of the week. And these meals aren’t just healthy – they’re easy! Each meal takes 30 minutes or less to make and only has five to eight ingredients.
And if you don’t want to follow our meal suggestions, that’s totally fine! You can turn off meal suggestions by choosing the option of logging your own food. Just enter the food name, and the app automatically searches its database of packaged and home-cooked ingredients to quickly find the one you want to log.
Take a look at everything you can do in the One Min Meal Plan:
Customize your meals. You can choose your nutritional preferences and restrictions, including vegan, vegetarian, and more. From there, you can also remove other foods that you don’t eat. (Just keep in mind that more restrictions mean more limited meal options.)
Choose from hundreds of meals. When your weekly menu is generated, you have the option to swap out any meals you don’t like – just tap “Replace” and choose from tons of other tasty options. Our nutritionists review every recipe to make sure it’s healthy, but it’s not all about the science! These dishes taste every bit as great as they are good for you.
Get your shopping list. Once you’re happy with your weekly menu, it’s time to head to the store! Don’t worry, we’ve made this easy for you, too. Just select the Groceries tab which allows you to generate your Shopping List and check off each item as you put in your cart.
Follow our cooking tips. If you’re new to the kitchen, don’t worry. For each basic recipe, we’ll provide you with some quick tips to make the experience less painful.
Log your meals. Tracking your meals is super simple. All you have to do is hit “Eat” and it’s recorded! As you log meals throughout the day, your calorie and macro total will be updated at the top of the app, so you always know where you stand.
Update as you go along. If you ever want to adjust your food preferences, change your calorie range, or turn off meal suggestions, just simply click the three dots to the left of the One Min Meal Plan logo and make your updates.
Openfit Nutrition Tracker
If you would prefer to track your own food instead of following a pre-made plan, you can do that on Openfit, too! Simply go to the Nutrition section of your Openfit app and select the Openfit Tracker option. Here, you can add your own food as you eat it throughout the day, and the tracker will automatically calculate your intake of calories, carbs, fat, protein, and other nutrients. This is a great tool to use if you want to get a baseline for what your eating habits look like.
Sugar Free 3
Have you found your sugar cravings are getting harder to resist? Wonder why you are struggling to lose weight? Have you been lacking energy and sleeping poorly? There’s a good chance that added sugars and their equally nasty friends — refined carbs and artificial sweeteners — may be to blame.
That’s why we’ve developed Sugar Free 3 — a nutrition program designed to help bring you more energy, healthier-looking skin, and surprisingly easy weight loss in just 3 weeks. You’ll find this program, led by health journalist and wellness aficionado Michele Promaulayko, in the nutrition section of the app.
Sign up for Sugar Free 3 by choosing a start date and answering a few questions. For the next three weeks, we’ll provide you with healthy, tasty meals that don’t have any added sugar. You also have the option to track your own meals!
And since cutting out added sugar can be a daunting task, Michele created helpful videos to guide you through the process. She’ll explain what foods are allowed, how to navigate dining out, how to deal with cravings, and more. Sugar Free 3 also includes some short movement and meditation classes that can help make these three weeks smooth and easy.
When you want to get the most out of your Openfit fitness and nutrition program – and help accelerate your progress – nutritional supplements can be a huge help.
