I use nutritiondata and fatsecret to look up nutritional info for new items. I have found that often the member info input into MFP is wrong.
How do you change the fat/carbs/protein on MyFitnessPal?

Login to your MFP account online, then go to "My Home", "Goals" and click on the "Change Goals" button. Click on the "Custom" option and you will get a page where you can set up any nutritional goals you want.

I've got the MyFitnessPal app but have not been using completely. I set the goals to be 5% carbs 15% protein 80% fat. But the daily score just reflects a single number. You have to look at each item to get the list breakdown. It would be better if it told you exactly what was left in your score but broken down into the three categories.
There's a premium version but it's quite expensive. Is the premium worth it? Does the premium provide a complete breakdown of your daily goals?

I've been using MyFitnessPal this week and find it very good in tracking my diet. I did find on the Bloodsugar 101 site a program that calculates what your targets should be. It has me starting at 5% carbs, 60% protein and 35% fat until I become ketosis. I'm in my second week of this diet so I need to redo this next week.
I do find it hard to eat enough protein to match this percentage. My daily percentages look more like 5/70/25. Will this delay my being able to go ketosis?

You won't get into ketosis at those ratios. I think you have proteins and fats exchanged. Too much carbs or too much proteins will not let you in or will kick you out. It will probably take 70% fats
