Export Meal by Meal along with time heisaudihere — Jul 08, 2017 02:00PM PDT

How is it possible that I'm not seeing a way to export my meal by meal for each day, along with what time I logged it at? Isn't this the very darn basic thing I'm paying for? I need to share it in csv format with my trainer but looks like that isn't an option. It is literally 100000% useless to export that I ate 16 chicken breasts last week with absolutely ZERO context. If this isn't an option, I'll just switch to one of your competitors who understands that hoarding the data I GIVE TO YOU.. isn't a good business model. >end rant

So is this not an option? To export my meal by meal summary, with time/day?

Currently, Data Export is an added feature is for those with a Premium subscription. You can learn more about this feature by clicking here.

For those using a free account, here are some options that we hope you will find useful.

Using a web browser, log in to your account at . Mobile app users should log in using the same username and password they use in the app.
Once you’ve logged in, click the “Food” tab. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “View Printable Report.” Choose a date range and click “Change Report.” From your browser’s menu, select “Print.” In addition to printing to paper, you may have the option to save the report as a PDF, which you could then share by email. However, this feature may not be available on all computers.

Another option is to set up diary sharing. If the individual with whom you wish to share your diary creates a MyFitnessPal account, he or she can view your diary at any time.

MyFitnessPal does not currently support timestamps for logged foods. For now, many of our members work around this by customizing their meal names to include a time range. For example, you can change your meal names to:

Breakfast 7am-10am
Snack 10am-12pm
Lunch 12pm-3pm
Snack 3pm-5pm
Dinner 5pm-9pm
Snack 9pm-7am

Please see this article for more information on changing your meal names, here.

As an alternative, you can record the time of your meal in the “Notes” section.

Warm Regards,
MyFitnessPal Staff
