MFP won't stop "fixing" my macros

After recently increasing my caloric needs a few weeks ago, I just noticed today that MFP once again readjusted my macros to...

Carb: 50%, Fat: 30%, Protein: 20%

...which is apparently the system's default. I prefer a "moderate" amount of carbs...

Carb: 35%, Fat: 25%, Protein: 40%

While I don't fixate on macros daily, it helps me to track them on a weekly basis (especially protein intake)

Is there any way to stop MFP from automatically readjusting my macros to its default every time I manually update my calories?

    Note to self: Macros can be manually changed on the desktop with this link...

    But the question still remains as to whether I can stop MFP from doing the automatic readjustments

    I have not found a fix for that either >.<

    If you manually change your calorie and macro goal on the Goals > Edit page the macros don't change.

    I've had my macros set forever and they don't change when I edit the calories. (?) I do change my calorie Goal manually on a fairly regular basis, and I change macros the same way.

    Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one @kshama2001. That said, I'll give your idea a try in the app the next time I modify my calorie goal @cmriverside (which I'm trying to do monthly until maintenance). Thank you!

    I think that many account changes have to be done on the web version. I don't use the app but I've heard it said around the boards that some things don't "stick" unless done on the web version (?)

    For the longest time, when I changed my calories on https://www.myfitnesspal.com/account/my_goals/daily_nutrition_goals on desktop the macros would reset to the default. However, I see they are sticking today, and now that I think about it, they must have started sticking earlier.

    Good luck!
