Adding Food to diary at online (google chrome) SusanTootie — Aug 12, 2017 06:16PM PDT

I am using a desk top computer, Google Chrome. I can pull up a list of foods and some of them will go in the box to the right, but most (usually the one I need) won't move and can't be added. Then it says error and the whole thing stops. Please help!

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We’re sorry to hear that you’re having difficulty with the website. Would you mind trying a couple things for us to see if they help resolve your issue? Could you first try clearing your cache or deleting your cookies? The following links should help you with either:


If you are using Safari 6 or later, the correct instructions are here

If you are using Internet Explorer 8 or higher, please note that you should uncheck the “preserve data for favorite websites” option if you have MyFitnessPal favorited or bookmarked.


Another issue we have become aware of is a compatibility issue with the browser extension “HTTPS Everywhere.” Would you please check to see if you have added this plug-in/extension to your browser. If so would you try having it exclude myfitnesspal or removing it and seeing if the site functions normally?

If you are still having a problem could you then log in to your account and then go to and try to run and submit the diagnostic tests. If you could then let us know you have visited this link, what other previous measures you have taken, as well as what computer you are using (mac or pc), what web browser, and your MyFitnessPal username.

We hope one of these steps has helped resolve the issue. However, if not, we will do all we can to have the problem resolved for you as soon as possible. We truly appreciate all your help in helping us diagnose the issue, as well as your patience and understanding.

Kind Regards,
