How to use InBody and ChatGPT to create a meal plan

If you’re looking to track your overall health and wellness improvement, monitoring your body composition can be a valuable tool. An InBody body composition scanner provides a comprehensive analysis of your body’s composition, including your muscle mass, fat mass, and cellular water levels. By combining this data with personalized meal planning, you can make informed decisions about what to eat to achieve your health and fitness goals.

Here’s how you can use an InBody body composition scanner and OpenAI’s GPT-3 language model, ChatGPT, to create a personalized meal plan:

The process:

  1. Get a body composition scan at UAC
    • An InBody body composition scanner uses bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) to measure your body composition. It’s a non-invasive and painless procedure that provides accurate results in a matter of minutes. At UAC members have access to our scanner whenever they desire! We recommend monthly scans.
  2. Analyze the results
    • Once you have your body composition results, review them to see where you stand in terms of muscle mass and fat mass. Use the InBody app to review and track your information. Based on this information, you can determine what changes you’d like to make to your body composition.
  3. Set goals
    • Using the InBody app, create a goal you goal you want to achieve with your meal plan, whether it’s to build muscle, lose fat, or maintain your current body composition. The app will calculate the calories and macros (carbohydrates, protein, fat). The app will also show you what type of food you should be eating to meet your goals.
  4. Use Urban Athletic Club’s custom GPT to create meal plans
    • We created our own custom GPT that will create meal plans, including options for personal diet preferences like vegan, vegetarian, or dairy-free. Enter your macros from your InBody Diet Guide and the Urban Athletic Club Meal Planer will create customized meal plans based on your body composition results and goals. Use this link:
  5. Follow the plan
    • Once you have your meal plan, stick to it as closely as possible. Make healthy choices and avoid processed or junk food. In addition to eating healthy, make sure you’re working out at least twice per week and getting enough sleep, both of which are essential for overall health and wellness.

Here’s my example.

First, I open the InBody app and enter my desired goals.
