Thu, 26 Mar 2015 11:18:02 EST Daily Nutrition Feedback Report I hate getting the pop up to run my daily report when I am only in the middle of the day. I plan my meals so that I have an evening snack. At that point, I am not sitting at a computer ready to run reports. However, I am ready to see how well I did the next morning. The report can help me adjust for whatever I seem to be out of balance on (too much protein, not enough fiber, etc.), however, running yesterday's report does not generate points.

For the last couple of days I have not been able to get the 15 Minute Mathew Cohen Qi Gong video to play. It gives me video points, fitness minutes, an ad then just the twirling logo and NO VIDEO!

I look under fitness articles, and they didn't have any of the cardio exercises listed like cycling, swimming, etc. There is also nothing listed on my fitness tracker to choose from.

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 20:21:49 EST Fitness Tracker/Devices I recently bought the Spark Tracker which has many pros and a few cons. I am interested in buying a fitness/sleep tracking device such as the FitBit Charge HR or the Microsoft Band. Will either of these sync with sparkpeople? If not, is there anything similar to those that will? The spark tracker is great for steps and I love that it is waterproof and has a long battery, but it isn't really as intuitive as I'd like. Is spark going to come out with an "improved" tracker anytime soon? Sor... Tue, 24 Mar 2015 16:09:12 EST POINTS ? DIDN'T GET POINTS TODAY FOR MY E-MAILS , YESTERDAY I DID .

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 11:34:32 EST Suggestion for Nutrition Tracker Feedback I don't know if this has been suggested before or if it's even possible, but for those of who have communication between the nutrition and fitness trackers turned on (and thus our daily recommended caloric intake changes), it would be nice for those ranges to show up when we get our feedback for the next day as well. <BR> <BR> Just as an example. Let's say I work out 30 minutes today, just walking. My caloric intake increases, I eat accordingly, I make the lower levels of the caloric intake,...

I have tried using Spark twice now, but its so time consuming for me to try to use this as a food tracking system, which is what I wanted. The food database is VERY small, the transition from MFP to this just is not working well. When I log food in MFP I can a barcode or type in part of a name and its found no problem. Adding something to Spark is a nightmare, it often cannot be found by scanning a barcode or entering its name. I have to choose something I think may be similar and move on...

Sun, 15 Mar 2015 10:27:38 EST Adding foods not listed When adding a food not listed, the serving option gives you choices such as 1 serving, 1/4 cup, etc. When entering a serving as 1/4 cup you don't know until you "save" the food that that is an "invalid" serving size. You don't get an option go to back and correct it or find the error. You have to enter all the nutritional information all over again. Not user-friendly.

I have synced my fitbit flex to SP, but every time I hit the "sync fitbit" button, I lose all of my steps and it goes to zero. When I go to my fitbit app on my iPad, my SP nutrition data transfers over, but I have no steps. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be most beneficial! I sure don't want to lose all of my steps each day! Sat, 21 Feb 2015 20:02:53 EST AUTO LOADING ON FOOD TRACKING PAGE? I was OUT all day today at a meeting and only just now opened my food tracker to enter today's meals. Low and behold, the information from YESTERDAY was there! I had to delete each item individually, which was very time consuming and a pain in the butt! I realize it's possible that I inadvertently clicked something which sent a message to duplicate my meals, but this is the first experience I've had like this. Can you help me figure out how to fix it so it won't happen again?

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 03:09:37 EST Calorie burn-shoveling vs. snow blower, others According to the SP fitness tracker, I burn 82 calories for using a snow blower for 30 minutes and only 110 for shoveling snow for 30 minutes. That just doesn't seem reasonable at all. I think shoveling snow requires quite a bit more of an expenditure that walking behind a snow blower. Also, I understand that SP uses good technology for its calorie burning calculations, but for running, SP is consistently quite a bit lower than several other fitness tracking web sites. <BR> Thank you.

Mon, 2 Feb 2015 18:29:15 EST Can I edit a food I added (and made a mistake on!) I just added a new food and when I added it to my tracker I realized I made a typo on the number of calories! Is there a way to edit that? If not is there a way to delete it and start over? The food I added is Weight Watchers Whitman's Bite Size Dark Chocolates 1 Pouch, 1 serving - I put the calories as 12 and it should be 120. Opps!! Mon, 2 Feb 2015 16:12:13 EST Manual exercise entry vs general exercise entry My tracker identifies a general exercise when I have motion for more than 10 minutes, but when I go to a manual entry and put in the time I get a different calorie use. Ex. I snow shoveled for 30 min. my tracker recorded it as general exercise and gave me credit for 48 calories, but if I manually input it there is a 369 calorie value. An I double dipping if I add the full 30 min? Should I adjust the manual entry to take into account the general entry say 25 min? Is there a way to delete t... Mon, 2 Feb 2015 15:22:07 EST Syncing trackers I have a Fitbit, which I love and which is synced with my acct. But, it does not track swimming. I would like to use the Spark tracker to track swimming and have it synced w/my account without taking the Fitbit off the account. Is that possible?

I'd rather not have to add this as a custom food if I can avoid it. <BR> <BR> Thanks, <BR> Jenny Mon, 2 Feb 2015 13:01:19 EST Blogs & Offline Pages <BR> Is there some way that if a Spark member wants to set their page to Offline &/or Private, that their blogs *NOT* show up in the team member "More Recent Blogs"? <BR> <BR> I understand there are folks who, for whatever reason, want to have their page set that way.

Mon, 2 Feb 2015 09:07:56 EST Difficulty loading Spark Fitness Tracker Too bad it can't be as easy and seamless as the Fitbit. <BR> <BR> I disconnected my Spark Fitness Tracker to see what the FitBit tracking looked like, decided I like the SP Tracker better, but now I can't reconnect it. <BR> <BR> I tried downloading the install software and re-installing three times, and I tried it in Internet Explorer, Firefox AND Chrome. <BR> <BR> I give up. I guess I'll just have to continue tracking with the Fitbit. That was a cinch to reconnect with.

I'm new here and I'm just curious as to how the food calorie calculations work. How is it that I get to eat the calories I burn from exercise? Don't you have to exercise AND cut calories to lose weight? If not, I'm ok with eating more! haha I just thought that you had to stick to a calorie range that was separate from exercise calories to lose anything. (I'm a very curious person so I ask "How does that work?" a lot) <BR> <em>58</em> <BR> <BR> Thanks!

After I had entered all the data and saved the food, I discovered with further research that salmon averages about 363 mg of Potassium per 100 gms of salmon. As my burgers are 4 oz of salmon, or about 113 gms, that means each burger has 410 mg potassium. How can I add the potassium content to the nutritional information on the Spark People food?
