Totals do not add up in app (but do online) alli1128a — Jan 17, 2017 10:17AM PST

I'm having a weird problem when I use the app to track food in the diary. It will give me subtotals (for instance: 370, 591, 369) for my meals, but then give me an inaccurate total of food calories (1815) and tell me that I have negative calories left to spend today. This is separate from the exercise, even, and I don't understand why this is. It's not happening online though.

I have an iPhone 6 with iOS 10.1

Thank you for taking the time to post in the MyFitnessPal support center. Are these totals still the same in your diary? I want to check real quick before testing it on my end.

I am having the same issue. The calories add up online, but on my phone the same exact calories are listed but the overall TOTAL is different and says I have negative calories and have gone over my goal...
