What is Quick Add?

If you know how many calories you ate, you can use our Quick Add function to enter that amount into your diary without having to search for the specific foods that you consumed.

On the Web

  • On the Food Diary page, click "Quick Tools" under any meal, and select "Quick add"

In our Mobile apps

  • Scroll to the bottom of any food list while logging food, and tap "Quick Add"

  • As a shortcut in our iPhone and Android apps, tap "More" under any meal to log Quick Add calories to that meal.

We do not have a quick add calorie feature for exercise, but you can easily create a new exercise to log the calories you've burned.

When you upgrade to MyFitnessPal Premium… (Web, iOS and Android)

Is tracking your macronutrients (fat, protein, and carbohydrates) as important to you as tracking your calories? MyFitnessPal Premium users have the option of recording macronutrient values in their Quick Add items. If your nutrition strategy calls for tracking macros, consider upgrading to Premium so you can add macro values to your diary, on the fly!

Quick Add Macros is one of many beneficial features that are part of MyFitnessPal Premium. To review all of Premium’s features, please see this article.
