Where is the activity list? youngestof9 — Aug 04, 2018 04:22PM PDT
What happened to your activity list? This app used to include calorie burn count for driving, shopping, household chores, etc. Now all it has are exercises. How is it supposed to calculate how many calories Ive burned if all it has are actual exercises? Bring back the long activities list, please.

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We will definitely consider adding in these activities for a future update. Thanks for the feedback.
If you know roughly how many calories you are burning with a device like a heart rate monitor or activity tracker, you can override the calories burned field by tapping directly on it and then put in your information. You can also add a new exercise yourself, just go to “cardiovascular” and then “create new exercise.” Your estimate will be added to your personal database, and not the main database.
If you don’t want to use a heart rate monitor or similar device, you can make a rough estimate. This won’t be as accurate as an activity tracker. To do this, you can try substituting another exercise already in our database.
If you are interested in an activity tracker, you may want to look into our third party integrations. Several of our integrations offer solutions for monitoring your calorie burn over the course of the day and can update your MyFitnessPal calorie goals based on this data.
On the site, you can find out more about our integrations at http://www.myfitnesspal.com/apps.
All the best,
