How will this app help me achieve my goals?
With Ari Coach, we are not about food restriction. Instead, our plans are guidelines to build stronger and better habits. By choosing meals that make you feel satisfied and energized, doing your daily habit, and reflecting on why you ate, you’ll be able to maintain healthy behaviors to sustain lasting changes.
We want to help you move from planning to taking action.
Why can't I log every ingredient to count calories & macronutrients?
We have found that calorie & macro tracking is an unsustainable lifestyle for a lot of people. (Our cofounder tracked every day for 18 months and didn’t want to live like that anymore.) Rather than spending half the day logging each gram, we wanted to focus our energy on the quality & experience of enjoying food, and how to read our body’s hunger and fullness intuitively.
Plus, food labels can have as much as 20% error on calories – meaning there’s more calories than the labels lead you to think! What’s more, ingredient quality varies between batches, so macronutrients are only estimates.
As much as some people want to keep a strict calorie & macro count, it’s impossible to always know the exact amount.
When do I check-in?
Your week starts when you signed up. You can check-in 6 days from that. So if you signed up on Wednesday, your check-in would be available on the following Tuesday. We recommend checking-in once you have marked all of your meals as eaten or skipped.
It’s fine to wait and check-in on the day that you would prefer your week to start. Like #MealPrepSunday
How do I choose if my food is On or Off goal?
That’s up to you. You are holding yourself accountable for your choices. If it will make your journey longer, then choose off-goal. If you feel nourished mentally and physically, it’s probably an on-goal meal.
Ari Coach isn’t here to shame or police your choices. You are here to learn and make better choices for yourself.
What does PRO offer
We believe healthy eating should be accessible to everyone, everywhere. Our goals is to have weekly meal plans and habits free forever.

By going PRO, you will get access to super convenient features and add-ons that can help you enjoy eating healthy towards your goals, and also support our humble little team ☺️

Ari Coach is not able to cancel your free-trial on your behalf.
To cancel, you need to open the App Store or Google Play app on your phone, tap on your profile and scroll down to subscriptions, and tap on Ari Coach (If you don’t see Ari Coach listed, that means you do not have an active paid subscription with us on the app stores.)
Here, you can tap on the “Cancel subscription” button to cancel your subscription.
If you do not see the “Cancel subscription” button, this means it has already been cancelled. Once your subscription has been cancelled, you will no longer see a cancel button. Instead, you will see an “Expires [date]” listed in the subscription description in the Your Subscription section in that page, with renewal options below.
How to cancel your PRO Free-trial
Ari Coach offers 14 days of PRO for free, without signing up for a subscription. Once your trial is over, you have the option to stay upgraded on PRO or downgrade to the free Starter plan (without awesome add-ons like unlimited meal swap, grocery delivery, and more).
