Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Please accept our sincerest apologies for any confusion. With our latest update, we have added the ability to synchronize customized nutrient column choices from our website to the iPad, a feature that was previously unavailable.
However, in adding this feature, the nutrients list, which previously ignored the online settings, will now initially match the default nutrient columns from the site, which include calories, carbohydrates, fat and protein.
The good news is, you can get the sodium and sugar columns back, change them to something else you may rather track, and even change the order of the columns to suit your preference. To do this simply go to the online website at www.MyFitnessPal.com (just sign in with the same username and password as you do with the app).
Once online click "My Home" then "Settings" then "Diary Settings." At the top of that page you should see the "Nutrients Tracked" column. There you should see calories, which is standard, and then an option to track 5 additional nutrients. For each column, just use the pop-up menu to find the nutrient you would like to track. Once you have all the nutrients you prefer, then just hit the green "Save Changes" button at the bottom of the page. The next time the app syncs, those categories should now be visible as well. If not, please let us know.
In the meantime, thank you so much for using the program. Again, our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. We wish you all the success in reaching and maintaining all of your diet and fitness goals.
