Eat This Much – Create a Personalized Diet Plan

Eat This Much is a web-application that takes the guesswork out of dieting. Hundreds of online calories calculators tell people how much they need to consume to reach their target weights, but Eat This Much differentiates itself by going beyond the basics and offering actual meal plans that people can follow to make sure they meet their caloric goals each day.

The computations that most people use to determine how many calories they need to consume in a day are fairly complex, but using Eat This Much is actually quite simple. Just enter the number of calories you need to eat in a day to meet your weight loss target, select the number of meals you plan on eating, and click “Generate!” Eat This Much will come up with a custom meal plan that includes not only the recipes you need to make the meals it recommends, but also the nutritional breakdowns for each dish. By following Eat This Much’s meal recommendations, you can keep track of the number of calories, carbohydrates, and fats you’ve eaten each day. You can also customize your plan to adjust the percentage of calories coming from carbohydrates or proteins.

Users who take the time to register for accounts on Eat This Much can save a single meal plan to reference later. Meanwhile, users who sign up for paid accounts can save up to 30 meal plans. In addition, users with paid plans can save an unlimited number of recipes and automatically turn their meal plans into grocery lists that can printed out and taken with them to the store.
