Fat content pjay225 — Jan 12, 2017 02:28PM PST

I was wondering if you could break down fat content. At Weight Watchers they only count saturated fat. It is hard to figure out points. Thanks

Hey thanks for posting your question. You may select Saturated Fat as one of your nutrient columns displayed in your Diary if you like, or you may view it anytime on the website or in the mobile app.

While MyFitnessPal tracks a wide variety of nutrients, for spacing purposes we cannot display all of this data on your Food diary at one time. However, we do allow you to choose up to five nutrients (plus calories) to view on the diary page of our website and our iPad app, and the latest version of our iPhone app (when you rotate the iPhone app to the landscape position on the diary page). These settings can be adjusted on our website, and the changes will sync to the iPad and iPhone app when you launch it next.

First, log into your account on at, mobile app users should log in using the same username and password they use to access the app.

Once you’ve logged in, click “My Home” then “Settings” then “Diary settings.” On the following page, you can customize which nutrients are tracked in your diary. You may track up to six items, one of which must be calories.

If you would like to view the totals of other nutrients that are not one of your chosen Diary columns:

On the website:
Click on the My Home tab, followed by Reports, and open the drop down where it says “Choose a report.”

In the apps:
Open the Menu, then Nutrition, and select Nutrients.

Warm Regards,
MyFitnessPal Staff
