Dietary Energy in Apple Health is not being updated correctly cultofmonkey — Aug 09, 2018 05:51AM PDT

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling MFP, but I'm still having this issue.

MFP seems to add calories to the Health app on a per meal basis (which is fine), but it often misses out half my meals, resulting in a very low calorie total.

Sometimes it will miss breakfast and lunch but update dinner, other times (yesterday for example) it will update everything to a certain time and fail to update after that.

MFP has full read and write access in Apple Health, and is always set as the primary data source.

It's incredibly frustrating. Is there a fix available, or if it's a known bug, is there one on the way?
