Constantly asked to update goals NickleArse — Aug 18, 2016 12:26PM PDT

Every couple of hours when I open the app I am asked to update my goals. If I open the website I am offered to select no thanks, which is fine and nothing happens. However on the iOS app there is not a "no thanks" button so I am forced to update my goals if I want to use the app. It is very frustrating because it overwrites my current goals (with my customised ketogenic macro breakdown) with the standard one. It is extraordinarily frustrating, is there a fix for this?

Came here to ask the same question. I have set my macros manually too which takes it from a minor problem to a very irritating one!

I have read at least 3 posts on this forum about this issue. It is so frustrating and the solution is so simple. Make it optional to ask for a goal update. In the browser version at least there is a "No Thanks" button, but on the mobile version you cannot skip it.

Judging by how old one post is this problem has been on going for more than a year. Frankly it's a bit ridiculous.

Please fix this asap!
