Adjusting % of protein in the app

Does anyone know how to adjust the protein level in the app? I'd like to adjust the amount of grams per day. Thank you

    To add to the entirely correct advice above: Unless you have premium MFP, you'll need to set it by percent, and in 5% increments. Since exactitude on protein grams is nonessential, I didn't find that to be a big problem, personally. If I average out around where I want to be, over some days/under others by a little bit, I'm happy. (When my MFP totals turn red & green as a consequence, I just pretend it's Christmas. 😆)

    Oh and: In web browser MFP it's My Home => Goals => Edit button next to Daily Nutrition Goals.
