External APIs

The following feature is only available in the Premium version of the plugin.

Meal Tracker currently supports Fatsecret's Food and Recipe API. If enabled and set up correctly, your users will be able to search Fatsecret's online library for meals to add to their collection. This saves them manually entering the information for a given meal, instead, the title, description and other information such as macronutrients are automatically copied to their collection.
