Great tool! I found it on the MFP forums. Can I make a feature request? Can you allow us to specify the start and stop dates for the data so we can get 1 year segments of data ranging back more than a year ago? That would be sweet!


Benjamin Curtis says:

@drewdizzle: I’ve updated the tool to grab ALL data, not just 365 days. Give it a go.

kfn585 says:

I am unable to export the data. the progress bar stayed at about 20% for over an half hour. How long should I be waiting for the file to be exported?

kfn585 says:

It worked fine. sorry for the previous message.

Jesse says:

Thanks for making this! Any chance that this tool could also be extended to grab weights from the weigh-ins?

Benjamin Curtis says:

Unfortunately no, I wish it could. MyFitnessPal doesn’t provide a publicly view-able page with that information.

Alecta says:

This is awesome, thanks for making it! I had been manually entering my calories into an excel sheet for a while but then got tired of it. This is great, I’m going to show it to all my MFP friends

Cameron says:

Do you keep the data? I’d love to use your tool, but sometimes the comments i make on particular days aren’t things I’d be very comfortable having on your servers or saved off somewhere outside my (or myfitnesspal) control.

Tim says:

Any chance you can offer the option of a tab delimited file? The dates and some descriptions come through with commas which affects import to excel. Thanks!!

cb says:

This is great! I was wondering whether it is possible to download the total calories per day rather than having to go in and sum them up by hand? Thank you

Hjelmeyeti says:

This is awesome- saved me the trouble of writing a program myself :) ..of course you’d think they’d just build the feature into their site or something…

Ingmar says:

This is great. – I think we all agree that it would be even nicer if MFP themselves had an export option, but I can not thank you enough for providing this great tool. Pulled all my data and all cross checks came out smelling of roses!

Fitness4Us says:

Can you please re-enable?

Hassan says:

The option is disabled for me it says :
“The MyFitnessPal export tool is currently offline..”

I hope you can get it back :)

Bilal says:
