  • A bigger, international database of foods to which you have easy access – MyFitnessPal's existing database of local food items continues to grow, allowing members to easily track all major nutrients including calories/kilojoules, fat, protein, carbs, sugar, fiber, and cholesterol.
  • Community support – MyFitnessPal also offers localized Message Boards and Groups to help members in Europe and South America get the most out of our service.

Great that I can now select my preferred units for the measurements! (kg/cm/miles/cals)

Thanks you!

Will also tell my friend in Brazil about the site now that you support Portuguese language.

Sync doesn't work. When i launch the App it hangs on "synchronizing measurements" If i kill the app then launch again I can use it, but when i try to manually sync it says "sync already in progress". Using Android 4.2.2

Hey Guys,

After I installed the new version, I cant log in, or sync anything anymore (when I actually could log on once, but not any loner) on the mobile android version.

Im running Android OS version 4.0.3 on a HTC Desire V.

I've tried to un-install and re-install, and turning off and on my phone... no joy.

Please fix it guys!

And I wondered why everything turned German suddenly. :D
Mine works perfectly, thanks so much for all your work!

(There are some very very minor (punctuation) mistakes, they don't bother me but in case you want to correct them just send me a message and I'll give you the corrected version! :) )

Hello everybody.
I already signed in to OneSky Translation Center for translating your wonderful program to Italian, but this language is missing.
I think a software related to food management would be really incomplete without Italian language support! :-)
Please, add the Italian language to your project.
Thanks in advance.
