Filtering + Sorting Come To MyFitnessPal Restaurant Logging

If you haven’t already heard, we recently released a new feature called Restaurant Logging.

We’ve been working on Restaurant Logging for a long time and have been so happy to hear from our users that it’s helped them stay on track when they’re eating out.

But started thinking…

We know people find it helpful to see calorie and nutrient information for menu items. But we wanted to make it even easier for our users to pick menu items that will keep them on track and help them hit their daily goals. So, that’s exactly what we decided to do.

We can’t wait for you to try the latest updates to Restaurant Logging: Filtering and Sorting.

Up First: Filtering

It’s lunchtime and you head to your go-to spot with a plan to eat a meal between 400–600 calories. You know that’s a range that will keep you on track to hit your daily calorie goal. Viola! You now filter menus to display only items that fall within a certain calorie range.

Premium users can also filter by carbs, fat and protein.

Choose Your Sort Order

You can also choose how you’d like menu items to be sorted. For example, if you’re watching your carb intake, it might be helpful for you to see items ordered from low to high in carbs. Or if it’s challenging for you to hit your daily protein goal, you can try sorting from high to low in protein.

A Quick Note

We wanted to give you as much flexibility as possible to transform menus so they fit your unique goals. That’s why you can choose to filter or sort menus, or — if you’re feeling wild — can do both at the same time.

If you’re getting started with Restaurant Logging and need some guidance, this page will help.

Your Custom Menu

When you’re done choosing how you’d like the menu filtered and/or sorted, just tap Apply in the top righthand corner of the screen. Like magic, the menu will now only show items that fit the criteria you’ve chosen.

The full menu will reappear if you tap the X in the light blue box.

Filtering and sorting are rolling out slowly on iOS, so don’t worry if you don’t see them in the app yet. You can enjoy our Restaurant Logging feature on Android today, and we’ll be adding Filtering and Sorting to that platform soon.

All Restaurant Logging features (including Filtering and Sorting) are currently only available in the United States. Stay tuned for updates on when these features will be available internationally.

Until next time, happy tracking!
