    Today (Sunday) isn't working for me either anymore. This is irritating.

    Just so everyone knows: When accessing the day that was broken for me on the desktop, but going through the phone app on iOS (which still works for me), I copied a meal over to today and that seems to have broken the current day for me (Sunday, November 13). So I wonder if accessing corrupt dates will then corrupt other days if you try to copy meals or things of that nature.

    I don't know what's going on but I cannot update my food diary from the web. I always get the "There was a problem with your request"
    I've cleared cookies, site settings and the rest. I've tried 3 different browsers, no add blockers, and no AV running while I'm trying to troubleshoot this issue. I've also tried via my phone, and even had my brother try my account on his pc and it still isn't working, but it works for his account. Since I'm not a premium customer I can't open up a ticket with MFP so I'm stuck. Does anyone have any ideas on what to do to fix this?

    You don't need a premium account to contact support? AFAIK you can submit a request here (top right corner): https://support.myfitnesspal.com/hc/en-us

    Didn't work Saturday. Worked Sunday (still couldn't access Saturday). Today worked until a few minutes ago. Broken again. Is this a continual problem. No way am I paying for this level of frustration. Seriously frustrating.

    I have had the same issue for at least four days. This is the worst I've seen in 8 years. May be time to move on.

    Is anyone suspicious that access to historical food data is another feature they are moving to premium. We abruptly lost the ability to scan barcodes. I have over a 6000 day streak and will say goodbye to MFP if this is the case. It is a shame since it has been a valuable asset in the system i use to control my weight.

    I meant 3000 day streak.

    Leaving for C hrono meter after a 2099 day streak. I suggest you all do the same.

    That was actually my first thought. I'm wondering if upgrading would fix it? Almost worth the $70 just to uncover that sort of duplicity?

    This has been happening for me as well for a few days.

    I think it's safe to assume MFP has abandoned us

    If you have a fitbit account, there's a workaround for the lost history bug.... login to your fitbit account (browser) and go to https://www.fitbit.com/foods/log - all your history is there.

    I think this malfunction applies only to those who use the desktop version of the food diary?

    I got an email today telling me they're still working on it. Not very inspiring, but I don't think they've abandoned us.

    Mine looks good today. I was able to log breakfast using the web and not the mobile app. Later I was able to check it and add water.

    Is anyone else still having issues?

    It could be somewhat location based.

    Yes, it's been constant for me for a few months now. Not just the error page, but clicking to add a meal under one category and it ends up under another or when signing in, instead of it going directly to the food diary, it actually takes me to a page where I have to click on my profile first before being taken to the diary. I've considered canceling my premium subscription if the features are not going to work correctly.
