Change my total daily calories

My goal is to gain weight, not lose weight! I want to raise my total calorie goal per day and I can't find out how to change that number. How do I do that?

      2. Tap your profile picture.
      3. From this screen, you can change your Weight Goal and Activity Level as needed, and your Calorie Goal will change automatically.
      4. Or create your own goal by tapping "Calorie & Macronutrient Goals", and then "Calorie Goal".
      5. Toggle the button next to Automatic to the off position, then enter the goal you want.


      1. Tap on the three bars at the top left.
      2. Choose "Goals" and then "Daily Calories".
      3. From this screen, you can change your activity level and personal information as needed. This will cause your Calorie Goal to change automatically.
      4. Click on your current goal box to select your new Weekly Target.
      5. To create your own calorie goal, click your current goal box and then scroll down on the next page until you see the Custom option.
