How do I stop FMP from crediting me with extra calories? lazman58 — Jul 13, 2017 05:36PM PDT

I have a VivoactiveHR and have Garmin linked to MFP. I have MFP set up to account for my exercise calories but every time I exercise MFP gives me credit and adjusts my calories. How do I turn this off?

Hello lazman58,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. If you would like to stop Garmin from syncing exercises to MyFitnessPal entirely, you can either unlink them from MyFitnessPal or select “Do Not Track Steps” from the Steps menu within the app.

If you would like the Exercise Calories to keep syncing to your MyFitnessPal account, without increasing your calorie or nutrient goals, this is available within the additional Exercise Calorie Settings available within our MyFitnessPal Premium subscription. You can read more about the MyFitnessPal Premium features here.

Hope this helps! We wish you the best of luck in meeting and maintaining all your fitness goals!
