Update Calorie Goal coneflower2013 — Jul 04, 2018 12:13PM PDT

My calorie goal is not being updated as I loose weight. In the FAQ's there is a process to force a recalculation, but it does not work. Under My Home, Goals, the FAQ indicates I should use the "Change Goals" button. There is not one on the screen. It says the button should take me to a screen with a Guided Option. That is on the Goals screen. When making the changes I am to then to use the "Update Profile" button. There is not one on the screen. There is a Save button, but it does not change the inputs.

Anyone have another process?

Hi coneflower2013,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

To force the calculation, you can do this in two different areas from the website.

1. From the homepage after logging into the website, go to the “Settings” tab and then to “Edit Diet/Fitness Profile”. Make sure all information is correct in that area. Whether you need to make changes or not to the page, if you then click the Update Profile link at the bottom of the page, it should instantly set you on the most current information for your profile.

2. From the homepage after logging into the website, select the “Goals” tab, and then “View Guided Setup” and walk through the set up once more. Please ensure to tap the green “Update Profile” button at the bottom of the page.

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