Can I remove a food from my "Most Used" or "Frequent" list? What if I change my mind?

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Food items can be removed from the Most Recent using our iOS and Android apps and Frequent list using our website, and our iOS and Android apps. We are working to add the ability to remove Most Recent items on our website in the future.

(Please note that items deleted from the Most Recent and Frequent list on iOS or Android will remain on your list when viewed on the website or in other mobile apps. We will add syncing of items in an upcoming release.)

To delete items in the iOS and Android app, swipe an item from right to left (iOS) or press and hold on the item (Android) in the "Most Recent" or "Frequent" view, then tap the "Delete" button when it appears.

To delete Frequent items on the web, log in to our website at https://www.myfitnesspal.com. Mobile app users should log in using the same username and password they use in the app.

Once you've logged in, click the "Food" tab, then click "Add Food" below the meal whose list you'd like to edit, then click the "Frequent" tab. Check the box next to the items you'd like to remove, then click the "Delete from list" button at the bottom of the page.

Please note that items removed in this way are "blacklisted" from appearing on the list again. In other words, this is not a temporary deletion, but a permanent ban on that foods return to your "Frequent"  list. Users who have made a radical change in their eating habits will use this to remove the junk food from their lists, for example.

If you would like to allow some or all of the items to return to your Frequent list, click the "View Deleted Items" button at the bottom of the list. Place a check next to any items in the list and then "restore" them to the pool of foods permitted to accumulate in your Most Used list.

Items removed from the Most Used list on the website may also disappear from Frequent list in the app the next time the app syncs.
