  • Great app; amazing customer support

    By Antoinette33
    This is my second time using Real Plans. I found the Low FODMAP plan a couple years ago when I was having health issues and the app was a lifesaver- it saved me from having to spend hours researching recipes and ingredients. I had a week’s worth of meals in a few moments. I actually saw my symptoms improve by following the meal plan! Unfortunately I started having health issues again so I turned to the app for support. I created the meal plan and used the grocery list to do all my shopping. So easy! But the next day (a Sunday) I discovered all the recipes I had planned for had disappeared! I realized a new week had populated and I could not find the week I had planned for. Upset, I emailed customer service and complained, not expecting a reply til the next day at the earliest. I was so surprised that within an hour of my email I had a call back from a real person! Antony understood my frustration and patiently walked me through finding the week of meals I had planned for. I am definitely glad I renewed my subscription and am truly grateful for the support!
  • Disappointed

    Very difficult to use
  • App misleading

    By Lola lucky 61
    I got this app because I thought it was part of the whole30 program and today I found out it’s not part of the whole30 programs🤬🤬🤬🤬. So I have wasted my money on this. This popped up when I sign up for the starter kit. They should say that they’re not part of Melissa’s whole30 program but it’s a tool to use if you want too. I wish I could get a refund for the remaining amount of time that I won’t be using this app.
  • Needs Help

    By Mary K Everett
    I will say, I’ve come from multiples meal planning and macro tracking apps which were very user friendly. This app is NOT that at all. Not even close. It is EXTREMELY confusing. It is a little more manageable if you do it on the website, but I downloaded the app for a reason. The leftovers is confusing if you’re trying to do it from the app. I also purchased the macro tracker thinking that it would track/show the macros for the meals I had planned for the week-it did not. I really want to love this app, but it is absolutely horrible in its user friendliness. I have never used an app or program where I felt so completely lost and confused as I did with this app. It is great for recipe ideas, but again NOT even close to subpar as a meal planning app. I’m regretful I spent as much as I did on this app.
  • Easy and comprehensive

    By jeffnewyork
    Real plans is by far the best collection of menus that generates shopping lists automatically. You can filter by type of diet (I use the Whole30 one), and services really good and creative, recipes along with preparation time step-by-step instructions. I have been using it for three years now and can’t imagine creating my weekly menus without it!
  • Loving this

    By Rain is love
    I’m doing the whole 30 minus nightshades and I can choose from easy to budget to more complicated meals. The shopping and pantry lists are awesome. Right now I’m cooking four days a week and using leftovers for the rest of the days. Although this next week, I’m cooking a little bit longer. Sometimes meal prep like this morning took two hours for breakfast for 5 days. It wasn’t difficult, there is just a lot of fresh herbs that I had to take off the stems. It takes a long time. I feel better and I’m losing weight. And it’s good to know that after I cook lunch with enough leftover for the rest of the week and then dinner with enough leftover for the rest of the week, my work week is gonna be so much easier. But yes, I do spend most of all day Sunday cleaning, cooking, cleaning cooking, cleaning, cooking … it is definitely not a lazy day. But I do get to rest in between. Yesterday at the farmers market was fun, but sometimes I’ll just go to Winco or Chuck’s to get some of the fruits and veggies. My blood sugar is down my resting heart rate is down. My walking Heart rate is down and my blood pressure is down. I know what I’m putting in my food.
  • Fantastic App

  • First two weeks

    By Playtoday123
    Things are going great and the scheduled meals mean one less thing to think about each day. And you know you will have what you need because of the shopping list. We also appreciate the simple ingredients and uncomplicated recipes.
  • Over priced

    By M3g4licious
    Got this app to try and it’s not as expected. Price is expensive and doesn’t give as many recipes/ranges as I thought. I find myself using a recipe more as an idea than an actual meal for my family. I’m googling other foods to make with some items off this app. Wish there were more options on editing the meal plans. After purchasing the app and trying it out I noticed they have a cookbook that most likely has the same recipes and a fraction of the price. I also saw that if you’re wanting more/different recipes, you have to purchase add ons…. For the first price paid for the app, it needs to have every recipe ever thought of. I did reach out for a refund but apparently I reached out 1 day late. 1 day. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Just buy a cook book or search super basic recipes that you can find anywhere else for free. Customer service doesn’t help just fyi. Was told mine was cancelled but they just cancelled the renewal.
  • Convenient

    By Switzerisland
    This app is great at providing usually delicious meals especially when you are bound to limited ingredients due to food allergies. Took me a couple days to get used to using the app efficiently however that could be said for most apps.
