    I wish I could add screenshots, but here goes.

    To enable MyFitnessPal to feed data to HealthKit, go to the More - Apps and Devices - Apple HealthKit - manually enable each indiividual data alement to share with Apple HealthKit. Then go once into the Apple HealthKit Settings and reconfirm.

    Also, in MyFitnessPal, go to the More - Steps menu and enable it to use the iPhone device processor as the pedometer or any other that is listed there.

    How to enable MyFitnessPal to feed data to HealthKit

    My problem is, I want MyFitnessPal to READ the data in my iOS Health app. But it doesn't do that even after I've granted the appropriate permissions.

    I don't have a setting in MFP to say what to share. It tells me to go into the health app to set up data sharing.

    Can you get it to read what's in the health app? Like dietary calories and weight?

    Mine reads and sends. I just tested just now to make sure.

    Maybe reset permissions and start again?

    I had to restart the phone once I enabled the syncing in heath and mfp.
