Hey thanks for posting your question.

Every time you record your weight in our system, MyFitnessPal checks to see if you’ve lost 10 pounds since the last time your goals were calculated. If so, we’ll ask you if you’d like to reset your goals based on your new weight. We recommend logging your weight once a week.

You may also manually 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”
Choose the “Edit” option for the goals that you would like to adjust.
Once you’ve saved your changes, those same changes will 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%.

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
