Can I track additional measurements, or change the default measurements?

If you'd like to track additional measurements such as body fat percentage, pedometer steps, blood sugar, hips or thighs, you can adjust the measurements you are tracking by logging in to your account on our website at www.myfitnesspal.com.

Each measurement can contain only one value per day, so, for instance, if you wish to track your blood pressure, you would need to add two measurements, one for systolic and one for diastolic. Similarly, if you wish to track your blood sugar more than once per day, we recommend creating an AM Blood Sugar and a PM Blood Sugar measurement, as an example.

Once you've logged in, click on "My Home", then "Check in", then "Track Additional Measurements".  You'll be taken to a page where you can add or remove measurements in your account.  Any changes you make will be synced to the app the next time the app is connected to the internet.

On the website, these measurements will be visible in the "Check-In" area. In our apps, you'll find them on the "Progress" page.
