Hey thanks for posting your question. You can adjust many of your goals in our mobile apps or on our full site at www.myfitnesspal.com. (Mobile app users should log in using the same username and password they use in the app, when visiting the site).
Log in to http://www.myfitnesspal.com in a web browser
Click “My Home”, then “Goals”, then click the “Change Goals” button at the bottom of the page.
Choose the “Custom” option and you’ll be taken to a page where you can set your own targets for all of the nutrients we track.
Once you’ve saved your changes, those same changes will appear in the app the next time the app syncs to the website
Windows Phone users can adjust their Net Calorie goal directly in the app on the “More” page by tapping “Edit Profile” then “Net Calorie Goal.”
In our Android and iOS apps
Tap “Goals” in the Menu (or “More” page)
Tap the settings to adjust your weight change and macronutrient goals (Fat, Protein Carbs)
Tap “Advanced Nutritional Goals” to adjust additional micronutrient goals
MyFitnessPal distributes fat, carb and protein calories based on a percentage, in five percent increments. If you customize your macronutrient goals, all three goals will adjust to total 100%.
If you would like greater control over your goals, you may wish to consider upgrading to MyFitnessPal Premium. Premium users can set very precise goal, in gram increments, for protein, carbs, or fat, or in calorie increments of one percent. Premium users can also set custom goals based on the day of the week.
