Sugar Intake chantelrozenberg — Jan 13, 2017 10:37AM PST
I would really like to see two columns for sugar intake; those sugars occurring naturally like in fruit, and added sugars from things like coffee creamer and bbq sauce. Since the daily recommended amount for women is only 25g of added sugar, I would like to see added sugar differentiated from naturally occurring sugar. Right now I am allotted 70 grams of sugar on MFP, which I feel is WAY too high. Is there a way to lower my own goals individually?

On the Web and in the iPad and iPhone 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 http://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 “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 on your home page, click “My Home” then “Reports” then “Nutrients” (on the web) or “Home” then “Nutrients” on the iPad app. There you can choose any nutrient we track, along with the time frame you would like to view.
