Percentages vs. Grams capricorncan — Sep 25, 2016 09:33AM PDT

I don't have Premium but I somehow changed the goals for Protein, Fat and Carbs from grams to percentages. I'd like to change them back to grams. How do I do that ? When I go back into Goals and chose edit it will only allow me to change the amount of percentage and the SAVE is greyed out.

Hey thanks for posting your question. Sorry for any confusion surrounding the macro nutrient goals. Currently setting your goals by grams is a Premium feature only. If you were somehow able to set them by grams recently, this was either a glitch or you have added a 3rd party/user created extension to the website that we do not support.

Warm Regards,

Hi Logan. I didn't know enough to set them to grams when I signed up. It seems that's what the default was. I don't know why it let me change it to percentage. It indicates beside the yellow padlock that it is "Set for grams" ???

Thanks for following up with us. When we view the Goals tab on our end, we are currently seeing it set as percent. If you are still seeing it as grams on your end, please click here to reach us via email and attach a screenshot so we can see how things are being displayed on your end.

Please disregard the e-mail I sent. I used the calculation formula you gave in your answer to IMMAYA and the percentages worked out. All is well. Thank you for your help.
