The purpose of this directed project was to develop a web-to-mobile meal-planning program, entitled The AMP (Automated Meal Planner) App. Specifically, this program generates pre-, during-, and post-workout meal plans for male and female athletes 20 to 45 years of age. This evidence-based meal-planning program was designed to provide athletes and active individuals instant access to healthy, nutritional lifestyle practices that ensure nutritional adequacy and bridge the gap between sports nutrition research and sports nutrition practice.
The metabolic "windows of opportunity" (pre-, during-, and post-workout) are the central focus of this meal-planning program. Meal plans are structured by nutrient timing (NT) to deliver precise amounts of nutrients at precisely the right times. Current sports nutrition research, principles and protocol were paired with an athlete questionnaire and a nutrient database through programmed algorithms. The algorithmic merger instantly generates personalized meal plans, which include foods, portion sizes, hydration, recipes, and timing.
