Building and planning your meals is the bread and butter of the Macrostax app! We provide a few different tools and features for you to do this:
- The Fill Macros button allows you to select recipes or foods that are already auto-portioned by the app so you can hit your macros without any guesswork!
- Custom Food allows you to enter custom macros for specialty item foods or personal recipes. All the Custom Foods you enter will be automatically saved to your personal account for future use, so you can look them up at any time.
- Select any food from our 850K+ verified database or use the barcode scanner! You can use the database if you already know the things you want to eat and don't need any suggestions from the app. Just search and add yourself!
You can use one way or a combination of different ways! The app is meant to be flexible to suit your individual needs and preferences. Start with foods you know and love to eat, or meals that you are familiar with. It is easier to plan your day in advance, rather than as you go, so you can adjust food or serving sizes as needed in order to hit your macros accurately.
