macronutrient percentages are not close enough touchadream — Aug 09, 2018 12:10PM PDT

I just upgraded to Premium thinking I would get a more precise goal-setting option. For example, I don't want to target 20% protein or 25% protein, I want to target 22% protein. Where is the option where it says you can track by 1% changes?

Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

The standard version of MyFitnessPal distributes fat, carb and protein calories based on a percentage, in five percent increments. If you customize your macronutrient goals, all three goals will adjust to total 100%. For instructions on customizing your nutritional goals, please see this article.

If you would like greater control over your goals, you may wish to consider upgrading to MyFitnessPal Premium. Premium users can set very precise goal, in gram increments, for protein, carbs, or fat, or in calorie increments of one percent. Premium users can also set custom goals based on the day of the week. A full review of the features that come with a Premium subscription are here:

Please let us know if you have any additional feedback, suggestions or questions. We wish you all the success in reaching and maintaining all of your diet and fitness goals.

All the best,
MyFitnessPal Staff
