Daily Goals sunflwr1 — Apr 18, 2017 09:02AM PDT

I am going nuts with MFP!!! I have changed and saved my daily nutrition goals several times in the last few days, but the changes DO NOT show up in my food diary. I've been able to do this in the past... what is the problem? I've paid for Premium... this should work and not be so frustrating!

I am having the same problem. Tried on my Android and on website via google chrome. When I click on my goals they are where I need them to be but when I go back to my food log and look at my MACROS they are the old goals.

Sorry Blake, I just saw this. I thought I'd get some kind of notification there was a reply, so thank you for the reply. Anyway I use Google Chrome for browsing and Windows 7. Before you say I need to update, it has saved before with no problem and I haven't changed a thing. :)

Sheesh Blake... I just noticed the time you replied... it was just a few minutes after I posted the question. I will definitely have to check often. Thanks again!

Hi sunflwr,

Sorry for the delay, I was out of the office since Thurs.

I’m seeing that you have “Custom Daily goals” set for every single day at 1426, yet your normal goal is 1586 calories. Which is the goal that you were wanting to see in your diary?

Once I have that information I can assist you with resolving this to give you the correct daily goal.

Hi Blake, Yes I want 1586 calories and the macro-nutrients that go along with that. I don't know where that 1426 is still set at.

Thanks Much,

Hi again Blake,

When you mentioned "Custom Daily Goals" I was able to see what the problem was and fixed it. I will mark the issue as resolved. Thanks again!
