What's the pricing?
Are you/Scientific Meal Planner associated in any way with NutritionFacts.org?
No, we're simply fans of their work. While we attempt to implement their advice into a meal planning algorithm, our meal plans are not endorsed in any way by nutritionfacts.org. Nutritionfacts.org is a non-profit entity and has no relationship with us, although they are aware of The Scientific Meal Planner's existence.
Why should I trust your information? Somebody else on the internet says otherwise?
The meal planning algorithm is based on information presented on nutritionfacts.org. This is a non-profit organization that spends its time reading scientific papers about nutrition and presenting them to the public. They are a non-profit with no motive to misrepresent the information. Contrast this with the various fad doctors / diets making dubious claims with no scientific backing and selling their wares. That being said, you have to make up your own mind about whether it's a trustworthy source. In my view, there really isn't a more reliable source of nutrition information out there. I provide citations throughout the application and strive for absolute transparency. Check out the nutritionfacts introductory videos if you need convincing about a whole food plant based diet's proven benefits.
Wait, what's the problem with meat exactly?
How will I get enough protein eating plant based?
There has been a lot of unjustified emphasis on protein in popular culture. The reality of the situation is 97% of Americans get plenty of protein, including vegetarians/vegans. Meanwhile, 97% of Americans don't get enough fiber, a problem that goes away when eating sufficiently plant based.
How do I build my own meal plan?
You can build your meal plan by first generating one and then replacing each recipe with whatever you'd like. This way you can construct a meal plan and see how it scores in terms of calories, daily dozen percentage, etc.
Can I build gluten free / nut free / allergy sensitive meal plans?
We don't currently support this, although someday we may add this.
Are there iOS / android app versions?
Not yet, but there may be later on.
