I want to "clean up" my Food Lists of recent and frequent cdoc754 — Oct 07, 2018 03:06PM PDT

How do I remove foods from my recent and frequent lists? I have an old account and would like to start using My Fitness Pal again. I need to remove items so I don't have to scroll through foods I no longer eat.

Thanks for asking. The Frequent and Recent lists are designed to automatically add to and delete based on frequency of use. However, since the lists can hold several items, this may take time before items start to automatically drop off the lists based on a lack of use.

Currently, you can only manually delete items from the frequent list, and this can only be done in our iPhone and iPad apps, or online, at www.MyFitnessPal.com (sign in with the same username and password as the app). Though, at times, when you delete them from the website, they may also delete from the app, this may not always be the case. Sometimes, the syncing between the two does not pick up the item has been deleted, and therefore they remain on the app, even though they’ve been deleted on the website.

The recent list can not be manually deleted from. We understand this can be a bit frustrating for our members who would like more control over their lists, and we are definitely looking into finding ways to add more as a future possibility.

Warm Regards,
Logan
