How To Delete Myfitnesspal Account

What Is Myfitnesspal?

MyFitnessPal is a popular health and fitness tracking platform available as a website and mobile app. It primarily focuses on two key areas:

1. Nutrition Tracking:

  • MyFitnessPal boasts a massive database of food items, allowing you to log your meals and snacks easily.

  • It calculates the calorie content, macronutrients (protein, carbs, fat), and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals) for each entry, giving you a comprehensive picture of your daily intake.

  • You can set personalized calorie goals based on your weight management or fitness objectives, and MyFitnessPal tracks your progress towards them.

2. Exercise and Activity Tracking:

  • You can log your workouts, steps, and other activities, and MyFitnessPal estimates the calories burned based on the type and duration of your activity.

  • This allows you to balance your calorie intake with your expenditure, promoting weight management or fitness goals.


How To Delete Myfitnesspal Account

Deleting your MyFitnessPal account is straightforward, but the steps may vary slightly depending on whether you're using the website or the app. Here's how to do it on both platforms:

On the MyFitnessPal website:

  1. Go to the MyFitnessPal website and log in to your account.

  2. Click on the "Settings" gear icon in the top right corner of the screen.

  3. Select "Account Settings" from the menu.

  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the "Delete Account" link.

  5. Enter your password in the prompt and click "Delete Account" again to confirm.

On the MyFitnessPal app:

  1. Open the MyFitnessPal app and tap on the "More" tab in the bottom right corner of the screen.

  2. Tap on "Settings."

  3. Scroll down and tap on "Account."

  4. Tap on "Delete Account."

  5. Enter your password in the prompt and tap "Delete Account" again to confirm.


How do I delete my MyFitnessPal account and start again?

Deleting your MyFitnessPal account and starting fresh has two distinct approaches: permanent deletion and data reset. Here's the breakdown for both options:

Permanent Deletion:

  1. Consequences: This erases all your data, including food diary, exercise logs, weight measurements, and settings. It's irreversible.

  2. Steps:

  • Website: Sign in > My Home > Settings > Delete Account. Enter your email and confirm deletion.

  • App: More tab > Settings > Account > Delete Account. Enter your password and confirm deletion.

  1. Data retention: MyFitnessPal might retain anonymized data for statistical purposes, but your personal information is permanently deleted.

Data Reset:

  1. Consequences: Your current diary and progress are cleared, but your account profile, goals, and preferences remain intact. It's like a fresh start within the same account.

  2. Steps:

  • Website: My Home > Settings > Reset Starting Date, Weight & Goals. Set new values and confirm.

  • App: More tab > Settings > Account > Reset Account Progress. Confirm action.

  1. Data retention: All historical data remains accessible through the "Reports" section, allowing you to track past progress.

Choosing the right method:

  • Permanent deletion: Ideal if you're completely done with MyFitnessPal or want a clean slate with a new account.

  • Data reset: Suitable if you want to refresh your tracking within the existing account, like starting a new fitness program or changing goals.

Why can't I cancel MyFitnessPal subscription?

There could be several reasons why you're facing trouble canceling your MyFitnessPal subscription. Let's explore some possibilities:

1. Platform Mismatch:

  • Ensure you're trying to cancel from the same platform where you subscribed. Subscriptions purchased through the MyFitnessPal website need to be canceled there, while app store subscriptions (Google Play or Apple App Store) require cancellation through their respective platforms.

2. Auto-Renewal Still Active:

  • MyFitnessPal subscriptions by default have auto-renewal enabled. Even if you try to cancel, it might only disable future renewals, not the current one. Check if you see any "Cancel Subscription" or "Turn Off Auto-Renewal" options instead of just "Cancel."

3. Past Billing Date:

  • Cancellations typically need to be done before the next billing cycle to avoid being charged again. If you're past the deadline, the cancellation might only take effect for the following period.

4. Technical Glitch:

  • Occasionally, technical issues can hinder subscription cancellations. Try restarting your device, the app, or the website and try again.
