By Nibble Apps Ltd
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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 join Kevin Curry across 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 just can’t afford to eat the food needed for bodybuilding”
- “I always end up cheating and slipping back in to bad habits”
Kevin Curry, founder of Fit Men Cook, 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
Kevin shares his journey with the Fit Men Cook community and inside this brand new app where you’ll find the best way to prepare 273 of his most popular recipes.
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 the time each 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 in 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.
The app also includes a Meal Planner with sample weekly plans.

Changed the Way I Eat
Ok so I’ve been putting off this review for years so here goes. I started using this app way back when it first came out, I had never heard of the blog or anything. At that time I had just graduated from college and was starting my first ‘real job’. Let’s just say while I had kind of grown up my lunch packing skills were still at an elementary school level 😂. I brought two uncrustables a bag of chips and some applesauce every day😬. I needed a change and meal prepping was the trend so I found this app and gave it a try. Well..it’s now almost 2018 and I still use the app every week when I do my shopping and prepping. I prep all of my breakfasts and lunches M-F as well as few dinners. I have my go to favorites but also love to try the new stuff that is constantly being added. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to make the bbq shepherds pie every meal 😁. Bottom line I am not only saving a ton of money but I’ve also really smashed a lot of my fitness goals. I have recommended this app to so many people and will continue to every time someone says “what’s in that mason jar?” or “Your lunch always smells so good”. Download the app, try the recipes, experiment and make them your own. Before you know it you’ll be cranking out a weeks worth of meals in an hour and saving money on that grocery bill. Do it!!!!
This has a tons of recipes with categories based on what you’re looking for (high carb, snack, high protein, etc.) The shopping cart is a great feature that sorts ingredients from recipes according to which grocery aisle they will be found in, which is convenient.
The issue I have is that the cook times for meat aren’t accurate. When it says to let the chicken cook in the oven for 10-15 minutes, I always go for 15 minutes but the chicken still isn’t cooked well inside. Blood is still dripping when I slice it open and there are still red patches of meat. Other than that, very useful app!
5 star worthy but can still be even better
The one thing that I think would improve the app is to include the ability to be able to sort the meals by in order by macros.
Little fixes like that will earn 5 stars.
Overall though hats off for the quality of the videos and sheer amount of recipes and content. Still a must buy if your looking for great meals. I use it took almost all of my meals.
