New user and I do like what I've seen so far. Fairly intuitive and I have the ability to fine tune my goals based upon my specific needs. Very cool - thank you.

It would be great if your goals settings included "net weight gain" for those of us in the minority. All our numbers show up as "negatives" - which takes a few seconds to translate and is not positively reinforcing. So perhaps one of the first questions to ask in the goal section should be: Gain/Lose/Maintain Weight. Then there may be secondary goals such as "Reduce/Increase fat" or "Reduce/Increase protein" "Reduce/Increase Fiber" or "Increase Good Carbs" - all things that people trying to gain and lose weight might need to address. Also, would be great to see more "meals" for folks that need to eat smaller more frequent meals to achieve their goals. Pperhaps this is triggered by the above questions, since some people may need to eat less frequently. It would also be great if we could rename those meals (i.e: "snack" to "mid-morning meal").

This site was recommended by a medical dietician and I expect some trainers and coaches might also recommend it to people trying to gain weight while building lean muscle. Might also be nice data for you to ask if we were referred by someone. Those two bits of data will help you identify trends that might be important to future service enhancements. Thank you.

This much is do-able
food > settings
every user can have up to 6 meal slots and they can be ordered however you want, do note that changing from breakfast, lunch, dinner snack to ....say breakfast amsnack lunch pmsnack dinner evensnack will have your prior lunch items listed under the amsnack, former dinner items under lunch... former snack items under pmsnack and no data for dinner and evensnack. The "labels" we use don't affect which slot they're stored under, first meal listed is meal=0, second meal listed is meal=1 etc.
