Goal changed, journal not updating flagrantavidity — May 15, 2018 09:53PM PDT

I just changed my diet/fitness profile and my calorie goal updated to 1630 calories in my diet/fitness profile and the same for today's food journal. However, tomorrows journal and all future days is showing 2150 calories. Prior to my updating my diet/fitness profile, my journal is/was showing 1890 calories.

Is this a bug? I want my future goal to reflect my diet/fitness profile calorie goal - which is currently 1630. I went through the guided setup and my journal still doesn't reflect the guided daily nutrition goals.

Please help

Hi there,

It looks like there was a glitch on our end. I believe I have corrected it now. Can you check and see if it looks better now? If needed, can you reset your goals once more and see if it posts correctly?

Please let us know if you continue to have an issue.

This has been corrected now.

However, I did notice another issue. In the MFP app, when I go to the "More" tab, it says lost 2 lbs in the upper left hand corner. However, when I go to progress, it shows 8.8 lbs lost.

The progress page is correct, but the weight lost in the "more" tab is not correct.

Same thing on the website, in my profile is says 2lbs lost. However, if I go to my previous measurement entries, I clearly lost 8.8 lbs.

Thanks for getting back to us. It looks like the Starting Weight needs to be updated. You can update it here or in the app under the Goals section.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or feedback.

I have the same problem, do I need to make a new post? The guided setup set me at 1500/day but tomorrow and after it is showing 2200!

Hi zoephoto,

I am not able to see this issue on our end. Can you force close the app and see if it helps? If it does not, can you log out and log back in? If you need to reset your password, you can do it here.

All the best,
