I added that new fatsecret app to my FB page, and now all of my diet calendar information on fatsecret is gone!!!!

Does anyone know what happened to them and how to get them back? Thanks in advance.

This happened to me. I am just bumping this to warn anyone from using that app if they don't want all their data to be lost.

Hi, i'm new and I can't see how to type in on the calendar. I would like to put my breakfast, lunch, and dinner in but I can't see how. I click add and it still won't let me add.

I sync'ed my Android app but the food diary I keep there is not showing up on my website account...

I'm afraid that syncing again will wipe my carefully kept diary.

Can I somehow export or print my diary?

This happened to me today as well. I wished I had read some of these forum posts before using that FB app. Sad

I tried to resync my android app with the site but now the phone tells me that my user name/ PW are incorrect but I *KNOW* they are correct. I have even done a PW change on the website to make sure they are the same but still no luck.

This is a pretty disappointing development to an app I use every single day.

I had the android app installed on my old phone. It was working great. I got a new phone and installed the latest version of the app. But I simply cannot make it accept my usercode/password even though I know its correct. If I try using a new user with the same user name it knows that my user name exists, but no way I can use my own credentials. WTF is wrong with this app!!!

When you sync the first time, you have to make a decision whether to sync from website to app or from app to website. Maybe you chose the wrong option? If you have a freshly installed app with no info and then sync TO the website, it'll delete everything.
I have installed FS on my phone several times, and synced with no trouble. I do, however, make absolutely sure to pick the right option.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Well that explains my difficulty. Guess I'll just use the App and skip duplicate entries here, too much trouble.

this is the only drawback of FatSecret ... not having the possibility to split your meals and customize them :(
