How do I determine how many calories/macros I should be eating? SparkPeople default of 1200-1500 a day is not enough for me, as I burn about 2300-2600 calories a day. I haven't found a way to connect my fitness tracker (Polar A360) to the site. I found a place to adjust my daily calorie range, but it doesn't calculate macros accordingly. <BR> <BR> How do other non-sedentary people use this site? Sat, 1 Oct 2016 01:48:33 EST Spark Premium Issue So I figured out how Spark is still getting me the ads, even though I'm a premium member. Instead of keeping me logged into the site, like before I was a premium member, now I'm constantly logged out of it. Then, since I'm not logged in, the site doesn't recognize me as a premium member, I get all the ads. This is not what I anticipated. Can this be fixed?

My streak of tracking food starts on 6-20-16 which means I didn't track food on 6-19-16 but I did track food on 5-19-16. Can you fix it? Thu, 29 Sep 2016 22:15:46 EST Challenge points I realize that there is a time limit on the challenges when we finish one until the next time we can do that challenge. Please explain why when we wait a month not being able to get the points for the challenges. We are unable to get points and there are no white check marks on the day. Does the system start that time limit when we join and get no points and leave the challenge again, as the beginning of that time frame? We need to know what that time limit is or maybe a reminder that we... Thu, 29 Sep 2016 11:38:34 EST Question about Reports Relatively new here, still trying to figure out what all is here.

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 02:18:32 EST Why is the Spark Store closed? Last year, there was a sale on all the remaining items on the SparkStore - 75% off. I didn't know if that meant the store was closing, so I was keeping an eye out for some "official" SparkBlog to announce what was happening. I was also hoping it would just be remodeled and have new merchandise put in (maybe use a different vendor or something like that.). <BR> <BR> So nothing happened, nothing was said, I bought what I could (I have some extra keychains or magnets if anyone wants one - prob...

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 16:57:14 EST Fitbit Syncing Too Long I've noticed since I joined the Sparkpeople Premium whenever I attempt to sync my Fitbit I get a red "sync requested" message. This never happened when I used the free Sparkpeople version. Furthermore, when I click on the sync request a second time another message pops up telling me that the sync now takes between 10-15 minutes after the initial request. Is there a glitch somewhere? Again, I never experienced that lag in time for the syncing of my Fitbit with Sparkpeople under the free ve... Sun, 25 Sep 2016 11:31:05 EST Why is response time soooooo slow?!

I was looking at the recipe calculator and it seems i have to submit a recipe before I can play with it. <BR> <BR> I don't want to further clutter the recipe database... so is there a way to work with recipes without submitting them?

Massive, obtrusive, on every page: <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Isn't there a way for the system to determine who has premium and who doesn't? There must be, since buying premium supposedly entitles you to "ad-free Spark." Couldn't the pitch to buy premium be assigned the same filter? <BR> <BR> Elsewise, what am I paying for? I thought premium was to filter out / block all advertising. :-( Fri, 23 Sep 2016 02:33:43 EST NO points for anything today Sept 23, I can not get points for ANYTHING on the SparkPeople site. No click boxes for the points for reading articles, no click boxes to even try to do trivia, no click boxes for inspiration videos. Nothing.

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 16:39:26 EST Trouble With Barcode Scanner This might just be me doing something wrong, but I just downloaded the app. I have been using another app to track my foods, but I saw that Sparkpeople had a barcode scanner too and it would be easier to just have all of it in one place. <BR> <BR> But when I went to use the scanner, I couldn't get it to work. Is there a way I can fix this? Sun, 18 Sep 2016 15:33:03 EST blocking a user? Can one block a user/troll who leaves unwanted and quite rude messages on the "chat" feature on the app?

Frustrating. Wed, 7 Sep 2016 08:15:46 EST calorie tracker I've already logged my meals for the day. My total calorie consumed is 1,640 which is what it shows on my food tracker page. But the quick view on my start page shows I've only consumed 1,225 calories with 425 calories remaining. My activity is NOT factored into my calorie budget each day. Why does the calories eaten on my start page not jive with the actual amount eaten shown on my actual nutrition tracker page?

The website is excrutiatingly slow when I am trying to enter data on all pages but the trivia page. Anybody else? Mon, 15 Aug 2016 23:09:00 EST Are you finished for the day pop up That pop up is driving me crazy. Today it started appearing while I was tracking breakfast and lunch. Of course I'm not done tracking for the day at that point and do not want a nutrition report. When I later entered dinner and a snack, it appeared after every single item so I had to close it and wait again before I could continue entering foods. The food tracker is one of SP's best tools but this pop up wastes my time and annoys me. It should be an option to click on when you're really done...

I added a meal called "supplements" to the Nutr Tracker. As I began to enter items that I want on record, I discovered that vit. B1, for example, can be entered only as percentage of RDA, not actual mg content. Alas, percentage isn't what I want, so I decided to scratch the whole thing. <BR> <BR> Revisiting "edit/add new meals," I deleted my "supplements" heading. Back on the Tracker pag...

My recommended calorie range is 900-1,200 calories per day, but SP will not let me enter a number below 1,000. I understand that the "average" person shouldn't consume so few calories, but it is appropriate for me. Is there any way this threshold can be changed?

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 08:48:31 EST Ad Blocker After googling for a sparkpeople page with less ads, I came across a message someone had posted on the site itself about how they had to get an ad blocker just to be able to use the site. I didn't know it could be this easy. I've installed an ad blocker when previously I would've shied away from them and find that my frustration level has almost disappeared because of the new ad blocker. I was desperate but thank you, random user, that your problem/complaint made it to google! <em>387...

Am I just missing it? Thanks for the help! Mon, 25 Jul 2016 10:08:47 EST People complain about changes so... After a change has been left for awhile....maybe once in awhile change back to the "old " way and see if people like it --or if they still complain. <BR> <BR> example the old "huddle" is now gone---so put it back temporarily ... <BR> <BR> Probably you can't put it back on the right column like a couple of years ago, but I bet people would not like it and complain. <BR> <BR> chris Mon, 25 Jul 2016 09:33:07 EST How to know if my friend feed needs correction? I think I inadvertently duplicated or tripled my newest feed post (with a photo of a dog and a dozen chicks). At least, it showed in triple in "my activites," from which I deleted two of the postings. But how can I delete repeats from the feed list that others see when I can't see what they see?

To clarify, ,,I am asking: is there a way to stop the daily messages that go out to the multitudes from various members on my personal page ......sometimes I miss the live messages from my SPARQ friends as there are so many of these every single day. <BR> ( While I am sure they mean well it gets tiresome and I seldom read them anymore) <BR> Thanks Sun, 24 Jul 2016 10:26:17 EST showing video ads on pages I am so disgusted. When I try to type my post in a team, the video ad that runs on the page where I am typing slows everything down to a halt. I have to wait for it to catch up, just sitting there while my typing catches up with me, and then I can type some more. <BR> <BR> It's so bad that it discourages me from posting on the teams. <BR> <BR> Even here on this page, the same thing.

At the top of the screen there was a message that said I had "2 messages". I thought that was the new way to get 'mail' from Spark People / friends. I clicked and the screen went blue. Fortunately, I got out before it got into my computer...but just wanted you to know. I"m assuming that there are a team of people who are monitoring for these kinds of attacks. It was a little scary.

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:40:46 EST Suggestion for Trophies I couldn't find a suggestion box so I'll add it here and hope a Spark Coach /Tech will read this. <BR> <BR> I enjoy trying to improve my percentage of correct answers in the Spark Trivia. I think it would be great for sparkers to be able to be awarded a ribbon or Trophy each time they increase their percentage. <BR> It would be very encouraging and a great incentive to keep on learning about health and fitness! <BR> Thanks, <BR> ~Susan Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:13:41 EST Why can't I access SP from my smartphone?

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:21:44 EST Is there a way to track Vitamin D from the sun? My nutritional reports are pretty inaccurate. I've been trying to add foods when I can get the correct nutritional data. But the one thing I cannot figure out how to fix is the Vitamin D in the report. <BR> <BR> There seems to be no way to add Vitamin D from the sun. I realize you might not want to encourage people to go out in the sun without sunscreen but it would be helpful for increasing the accuracy of reports.
