Struggle free, healthy and practical recipes that are easy on the wallet. It’s as simple as that, and it’s a message that’s seen over 1 million people follow FitMenCook on social media.
Be honest, have you ever heard these complaints about healthy eating?
- “Eating healthy is too expensive!”
- “It takes too long! I don’t have hours to spend in the kitchen.”
- “Healthy food is too bland”
- “I always end up cheating and slipping back in to bad habits”
Kevin Curry, founder of FitMenCook, has been there. After spotting a picture of himself on a friend’s Facebook wall he knew it was time for a change.
He followed all the common advice, changed to a healthy diet and started hitting the gym.
For a few months, things were great, but after a while he found himself craving the old foods he was trying so hard to avoid.
He got his hands on every book he could find on nutrition and started experimenting in the kitchen.
His aims were simple:
A) Food should be easy to prepare and affordable
B) Food should be vibrant and tasty, never boring
C) Preparing food in advance is important
D) Following a, b, c helps you achieve your fitness goals
The results for Kevin were game change and now he’s spreading message to the FitMenCook community on social media and inside the FMC app.
Top 5 features:
SHOPPING CART + APPLE WATCH
We've taken the hassle out of grocery shopping. Add any recipes you want to your shopping list and we'll organise the list by aisle, so you can easily find the items you need.
The shopping list also works on the Apple Watch.
EASY STEP BY STEP VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS
If you’ve ever looked at recipe instructions and thought “this just looks too difficult for me” then you’ll find the included recipe videos very helpful. Not only is Kevin a great host, who’ll fill you with inspiration for healthy meals, but he’ll also break down the steps in a way that’s easy to follow.
FOCUS ON MEAL PREP
Buying ingredients in small quantities can make recipes more expensive. Not only that, but many of us don’t have time every day to spend in the kitchen.
Meal prep is the solution. By designating two days of the week as your main cooking days, you can prepare your meals in bulk and eat healthy all week.
This is a crucial part of the app, and many of the meals are designed with meal preparation in mind, to make healthy living fit with a busy life.
MACRO COUNTING AND INTEGRATION WITH APPLE HEALTH APP
Bodybuilders and fat-loss superheroes can rejoice as the FitMenCook app has nutritional information built right in! Recipes list calories, protein, carbs and fat.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Working out regularly is great, but good health truly begins in the kitchen. This visually dazzling app offers dozens of meal ideas in clever categories like low-carb lunches and post-exercise snacks. Brilliant photos and simple instructions make these recipes easy to follow even for novice chefs, and the built-in shopping list groups items together by grocery-store aisle for shopping efficiency. Now all we need is an app that forces us to hit the gym.
Making Eating Healthy an Easy & Affordable Lifestyle
Before this app, I was going to the gym 5 times a week, working 50+ hours a week and had outside commitments that took up at least 10 hours a week and I was struggling to maintain healthy eating at the same time which led to a viscous cycle of healthy eating then binges on unhealthy food.
This app helps to manage what I eat, how to efficiently shop for it and how to prep so I don't waste hours that I don't have.
I've also recently upgraded to the MealPrepPro version and I am loving it!
It would be a great app if some features were implemented:
Personalised meal plans currently only produce one set of recipes. It would be awesome if there were many alternatives to choose from. This is a feature used in other programs, it’s really odd that it hasn’t been implemented already.
Country specific food options. I live in Australia so I really have no access to turkey as a cheap protein option. Again this is only an issue with the personalised meal plans being so limited. I’d really like to be able to swap out a recipe for one that is more accessible.
The way it is now, I have to select a recipe to find out the macros I’ll have to replace with another recipe manually. What’s more is I have to do all the calculations myself (it only shows 1 servings nutritional value).
I tried the contact page on the website, and after I finished writing, the website would not complete the send action.
I’m hungry as ever and now I’m writing this instead of eating because the app is unfinished in my eyes. Forgive my cynicism for I am famished.
