RMR & apple iwatch exercise anitamartini1 — Apr 01, 2019 02:03PM PDT

2 questions:
I had my RMR tested - is there a way to use that as my caloric base.
Also, is there a way to upload my active activity/workouts from my iwatch and not JUST my steps?

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. If you are following a different recommended plan from your doctor or nutritionist, you can adjust many of your goals in our mobile apps or on our full site at (Mobile app users should log in using the same username and password they use in the app when visiting the site).

Website Users

  • Log in to in a web browser
  • Click “My Home”, then “Goals”, then select Edit for Daily Nutrition Goals, Fitness, or Micronutrients
  • Once you’ve made your changes make sure to click “Save Changes”, those same changes will then appear in the app the next time the app syncs to the website

In our Android and iOS apps

  • Tap “Goals” in the Menu (or “More” page)
  • Tap the settings to adjust your weight change and macronutrient goals (Fat, Protein Carbs)
  • Tap "Advanced Nutritional Goals, " to adjust additional micronutrient goals
  • 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%.

To get your Workouts to sync from Apple Watch to MyFitnessPal, first make sure HealthKit is linked by tapping More>Settings>Sharing & Privacy>HealthKit Sharing. Turn on the Categories, then tap More>Steps>Apple Watch and confirm the Apple Watch is connected too.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or feedback.
