Why does the it not show when you are under your calorie goal anymore? The display in "My Home"
no longer shows that you have met your goal for the day or have just signed in. This is recent change.

Hey thanks for posting your question. Please accept our apologies for any confusion in no longer having your day show as completed on your News Feed. We recently made changes to our diary completion feature, in large part, to discourage the abuse of MyFitnessPal by individuals struggling with eating disorders.

If you now fall below the National Institutes of Health recommendations of less than 1000 calories for women and 1200 for men, the 5 week projection will no longer appear, and the News Feed will not show as completed for the day.

We do understand some MyFitnessPal members may be on a lower calorie plan recommended directly by their doctor or nutritionist. We are still looking into better ways to help accommodate these special circumstances.

While we truly regret that these changes may have negatively impacted your experience of using MyFitnessPal, we do hope you’ll understand our first priority is to make MyFitnessPal less appealing to persons who are causing themselves harm. Please know we’re reviewing your feedback and looking at ways to improve your experience at MyFitnessPal, while prioritizing the safety of our most vulnerable users.

If you believe you may be suffering from an eating disorder we encourage you to seek help. Please reference: https://myfitnesspal.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/1575987-eating-disorder-resources

We appreciate your understanding in this change and do hope you can continue to find benefit in using our program. Please let us know if you have any additional feedback or we can be of any further assistance.

Warm Regards,
Logan
MyFitnessPal Staff
