How to Adjust Your Diet Type (Website)

When you first log in, you are asked to select a diet type.  That diet type is used as the default diet type to find recipes in your Recipe Box.  We call that diet type My Diet.  It includes your selected diet type as well as any other dietary restrictions you may have entered. However, as you look for recipes for your simple meal plan, you can make adjustments to My Diet quickly and easily in the Recipe Box.

If you are using the website, you will follow the steps below. If you are using the mobile app, please click here.

Make a change to your dietary restrictions

When using simple meal planning, to make changes to your dietary restrictions to find recipes in your Recipe Box:

  • Open the meal plan you want to use
  • Click the Adjust link next to My Diet in the Diet Type filter in the Recipe Box
  • If you don't see the filter options on the left side of the Recipe Box, click on the filter icon in the search bar to expand the filters


In the window that opens, make any changes you want for your dietary restrictions

  • Select your diet type
  • Set dietary restrictions
    • To exclude an entire food group
      • Highlight each food group you want to exclude
      • Click on the arrow to move those food groups to the Excluded list
    • To exclude an individual ingredient
      • Enter the food you wish to avoid in the box under Find Ingredients to Exclude
      • Click Find Variants 
      • Select the specific ingredients you want to exclude
      • Click on the arrow to move those ingredients to the Excluded list
