Maybe this won’t motivate me to sign up as a premium member.... and rather eat take aways??
After competing my daily diary, the advert displaying on my weight goal page is for Macdonald’s, KFC, Pizza Hut?? I don’t mind the ads, but this is maybe not a good fit for the brand #justsaying

    Not everyone sees the same ads ... they are targeted towards you specifically.

    My ads are always for grocery store (kroger) and pet stores


    Ads on my page currently: Kroger, Chewy, Petco

    All the above being (accurately) said, we typically don't allow junk food ads on our platform and have filters to try and keep that stuff out. If you're able to take a screenshot of the ad, you can report it to our Support Team who can look into having it removed.

    To reach our support team for assistance, please visit https://myfitnesspal.zendesk.com/hc/en-us or email directly to [email protected]

    I hope that helps!

    The ads are based on you, not MFP. That's not to say they make sense: my current ones are for U of Miami and Mazda. If we are going to screen ads, in the future I'd prefer to see junk food ones (although I never do) rather than political ones (which I do at times), please.
