Future calorie goals won't update bobbiejowoo — Dec 27, 2017 07:33PM PST

Today I tried to switch my calorie goal from lose .5 lbs/ week to maintain. and the app will update today's calorie goal (to 2010 calories) for today only, and for future dates it's showing 1510 calories. This is a 500 calorie deficit. How do I get my diary to show the correct calories for future dates?

Things I've tried:
I have tried changing my goal to gain/ lose and maintain and future diary days all stay at 1510 calories
I've deleted and re-installed the app
I've logged out and back in
I've tried changing the goal through the website, and the goals page will show the updated calories as well as today's diary page, but future days stay stuck on 1510
I've tried setting a custom goal and even then the future days stay stuck on 1500

Thanks for posting and sorry for any trouble with updating your goals. We have tried setting your goal to maintain weight with 2010 calories on our end, and we are currently seeing the goal weight on future days in the Diary on the website. Please let us know if you are still not seeing it in the app.

You mentioned deleting and reinstalling the app. If you are still experiencing the issue, you might also try deleting the app, then resetting the goal on the website before reinstalling the app.

Warm Regards,
MyFitnessPal Staff
