What’s New In The MyFitnessPal App: September 2016

You’ll love what we’ve been cooking up here at MyFitnessPal!

We’ve made exciting changes to the way you log food, water, weight and activity in the app. Give these new features a try and see why it’s now easier than ever to understand your habits and reach your goals with MyFitnessPal.

Here’s a quick recap of the updates we’ve made:

Water Logging

Hello hydration! You can now log water in cups, ounces or ml. We save your recently logged water amounts so it’s even faster to log them next time.





Restaurant Logging Multi-Add

Restaurant Logging multi-add makes it easier to track multiple menu items at once. You’ll love it for “build your own” items like burritos, sandwiches and omelets.





Learn more about Restaurant Logging and how you can filter and sort restaurant menus.

Progress Photos In The Newsfeed

Celebrate your achievements by sharing Progress Photos in the MyFitnessPal newsfeed. Add a message or milestone to help inspire others in the community.





Export Your Information — Premium Feature

Premium members can now export their progress history, meal level nutrition details and exercise history as a set of CSV files. Open the files in EXCEL or another data program and do a deep dive into your habits by creating custom graphs. You can also print your files and share them with others.

Macronutrients by Meal — Premium Feature

Premium members can now see a macronutrient breakdown for every meal they log right inside the diary. Learn how each meal contributes to your daily goals and easily switch between grams and percentages.

Calorie Goals by Meal — Premium Feature

Premium members can now break their daily calorie goal into smaller, meal-sized chunks. This makes it easier to stay on track throughout the day and ensure you have enough calories at the meals that matter most to you.
