KFC Ads? ellisd012 — May 19, 2017 08:34AM PDT
Why am I seeing an ad for unhealthy KFC? That is discouraging at best and makes me want to use another app at worst.

Thanks for posting and bringing this to our attention. I’m sorry to hear that you’re seeing food ads on MyFitnessPal that aren’t in alignment with our goal of helping our users improve their health and fitness.
There are certain broad categories of ads that we do request our ad networks to exclude, including politically charged ads, religiously partisan ads, etc. In addition, we request that any ads for food be limited to the following categories: coffee/tea, food allergies, health/lowfat cooking, vegan, and vegetarian. Unfortunately sometimes ads are not categorized correctly by their providers, and are not filtered as they should be.
We’ll pass your experience on to our marketing team and see what we can do about getting the ads filtered out for future updates.
