Add food/Change Calorie total: chrismantei — Nov 03, 2016 09:26AM PDT

Hello,
Two questions:

1. When you're in the "add food" tab, with favorites listed below with check boxes - is there a way to delete some of those entries. At times, they can be no longer used or outdated.

2. Is there a way to change the calorie total from 1400 to 1200 - or another total?

If no on above, I would ask them to put this in their "suggestion box" to be more flexible and streamline.

Thanks for asking.

1) The Frequent and Recent lists are designed to automatically add to and delete based on frequency of use. However, since the lists can hold several items, this may take time before items start to automatically drop off the lists based on a lack of use.

Currently, you can only manually delete items from the frequent list, and this can only be done in our iPhone and iPad apps, or online, at www.MyFitnessPal.com (sign in with the same username and password as the app). Though, at times, when you delete them from the website, they may also delete from the app, this may not always be the case. Sometimes, the syncing between the two does not pick up the item has been deleted, and therefore they remain on the app, even though they’ve been deleted on the website.

The recent list can not be manually deleted from. We understand this can be a bit frustrating for our members who would like more control over their lists, and we are definitely looking into finding ways to add more as a future possibility.

2) You can adjust many of your goals in our mobile apps or on our full site at www.myfitnesspal.com. (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 http://www.myfitnesspal.com in a web browser
Click “My Home”, then “Goals”, then click the “Change Goals” button at the bottom of the page.
Choose the “Custom” option and you’ll be taken to a page where you can set your own targets for all of the nutrients we track.
Once you’ve saved your changes, those same changes will appear in the app the next time the app syncs to the website
Windows Phone users can adjust their Net Calorie goal directly in the app on the “More” page by tapping “Edit Profile” then “Net Calorie Goal.”

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%.

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.

Cheers,
Logan
