It's all about
Just how much food is good?
Bare bones and basics of portion sizes
Mealmapper aims to answer two questions:
Mealmapper generates personalized nutrition recommendations based on your age, height, weight, activity levels and food preferences. These are based on the science of portion control. We do not believe in the idea of excluding any particular food group for pseudo-scientific reasons. The website aids in creating an informed user who understands how to eat for their height, weight, lifestyle and goals.
Bad eating habits are near impossible to undo with exercise alone. Good nutrition and keeping food simple can be the game changers in achieving your health and performance goals.
We don't charge for this service. We don't sell ads or content to anyone. If we, however, decide to make a buck off this platform, we will tell you how we plan to do it and what that means for your personal data.
We don't currently have apps for mobile devices.
Mealmapper is rigorously grounded in science. Diets such as Paleo, Atkins, Veganism, Ketogenic diets etc revolve around the principle of excluding one or more food groups from one’s daily eating. These diets advertise that excluding these foods create unique conditions in the body to aid fat loss. The science however does not support the idea that excluding a food group can help you lose weight.
Nutritional science (which continues to evolve) indicates that how much you eat is just as important as what you are eating. In most cases where people are overweight, how much you eat is a more important choice than what you eat. Being aware of how much and picking minimally processed foods can be game changing and, more importantly, could lead to more sustainable and healthful eating habits in the long run.
Industrial economics makes us favour some foods over others. For example, starches, grain and vegetable oils are among the most affordable foods available on a per calorie basis. This leads people, regardless of social strata, to favour those foods over lentils, dairy products, eggs, vegetables, fruit, meat or poultry.
With the right preparation and in the right amounts, all those foods can and should play a role in our daily eating. Mealmapper helps you figure out how much of different foods you need to eat.
Anyone who wants to understand what/how much to eat to lose fat, improve their quality of life or better their sports performance will benefit from mealmapper.
Clients of movement inc have an edge since we work closely with them to provide more context and hands-on support to implement eating plans.
We've presented the recommendations in a simple format with standardised measures.

Calorie measures are the backbone and most visible part of most logging and nutrition apps. We, however, choose to take a different approach.
Calorie measures reduce food to its energy content. This approach has a couple of limitations:
We realise the importance of energy balance and how eating too many calories is among the major problems we face today. Although we use calorie measures to generate our recommendations, we believe that a sustainable way to generate a healthy relationship with food in the long run is to visually recognise the right foods and the right amounts of it. You don't need to fixate on the calorie number if you know how to put together a decent plate of food in different settings.
