Meal Plan Generation

This endpoint generates a meal plan for a specified period of time. How does it work?

  • The daily caloric intake is calculated according to specific fields in the user’s profile, i.e. their height, weight, sex and activity levels
  • The meal planner then composes a tailor made meal plan, composed of recipes taken from Whisk’s extensive and varied recipe database
