Fri, 18 Apr 2014 15:15:53 EST Fitbit Zip sync with Sparkpeople Nutrition Try as I might I can't get this to resolve itself. I plan my days in advance and add my foods to my nutrition tracker first thing in the morning. Throughout the day I adjust the nutrition portion as needed - increasing, decreasing, removing, adding etc. For some reason even when I manually sync the food consumed data in my Fitbit Zip just keeps adding on so at the end of the day I look like I've consumed sometimes as much as 4,000 calories etc. The nutrition tracking information does not seem...

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 10:47:39 EST Nutrition Tracker Problem Yesterday I was in the Fitness Tracker and somehow I got to a point that it asked me if I wanted my fitness tracker and nutrition tracker to work together. I thought it would be great that my calories expended would work with my nutrition taken in...not. It has increased all my allowed calories, fat...etc. <BR> <BR> I would like to get it back where it was but do not know how. Diane Fri, 18 Apr 2014 07:45:03 EST Where can I find that survey again?

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 22:15:10 EST Health News Bug I'm not sure if this the best place to report bugs. But, there's a bug with the Health News articles which has remained unfixed for a long time now (over a year?). So, I thought I'd point it out since it should be very easy to fix.

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 18:32:47 EST Restart the weight tracker I'm starting over, and want the weight tracker report to start over as well, so that when I pull it up, it doesn't go all the way back to last year when I first entered some data. <BR> <BR> Is there a way to easily delete all that previous information, or will it have to be done one day at a time? And I'm assuming that if it is deleted, the weight tracker report will no longer go any further back for its start date, than the first date with data there .... is that correct? <BR> <BR> Thanks...

I just moved and started with a new doctor who is working with me and my SparkPeople reports to help figure out why I'm having such a hard time losing weight. My trackers all start in the middle of March 2014, I started seeing the new doctor April 1 and am tired of having to manually change the dates before printing anything. I started with SparkPeople in 2008 so I don't even know where the March date came from.

When I navigate away from that tracker page the minutes are no longer in the system and it has reset to zero. <BR> <BR> <BR> Thank you Tue, 15 Apr 2014 09:27:54 EST Slow web site Is anything being done to improve the web site performance? My main complaint is the food tracking. It is horribly slow. It loses characters, takes seconds to echo them back, etc. The rest of the site has also degraded since last year. I see other threads in the message boards but no real, technical responses of help. It is not a cookie or cache issue. I am using Chrome. I find it easier to use the mobile app for food tracking since it is way faster.

I use my tracker everyday, so why doesn't one automatically get the 500 points the first time that their tracker sends information to online?

Sometimes, when I reclassify my Spark workout from "Run Event" or "Run-Walk Event" to "Bicycling, general" the number of steps changes by a huge amount. Today, before I reclassified, it showed that I had 1364 steps during that class, and 0.73 miles. After I reclassified, the steps were 7488 and miles were 3.74. I hate to "complain" about this, but it seems like an unreasonably large change. Is there something wrong with the algorithm the Spark Tracke... Fri, 7 Mar 2014 14:18:52 EST 'Like' button When is SP getting a 'like' button. It is well overdue and the fact that I can't always write in a comment...a like button would really show my fellow SparkPeople that I am in support of their efforts. <BR> <BR> Thanks! Fri, 7 Mar 2014 12:42:20 EST Not loading!!! I know my computer needs a new battery but... I have it plugged into the wall and do other stuff besides SP. SP info. takes FOREVER! The other day I tried loading my food for the day and it worked at 1st but after entering some things my own food list wouldn't come up at all! I LOVE SP but, it can take 4 hours, no joke to load my menu!!!! I don't have that kind of time. I would rather be exercising or cooking something healthy! Any ideas besides getting a new battery? That's a given. I can't ... Thu, 6 Mar 2014 21:55:15 EST Slowness I am having a terrible time with the system being slow. I have cleared my cookies.

In the food tracker there was always the possibility to put in the weight of a food in grams. This seems to have recently disappeared. For those of us living outside the U.S. who do not use the America measures like cups, tablespoons etc., the grams measurement was perfect and much more exact. <BR> <BR> Could you please consider reinstating that?

While I ~was~ busy this weekend, I have not yet accomplished the reported 1,404 fitness minutes yesterday. <BR> <BR> I tried removing my Fitbit and readding it, but the same problem occurs. It's convenient to have the Fitbit synch automagically, but if it's an ongoing issue should I just remove it and start making manual entries? <BR> <BR> I've admittedly been off Spar...

Potential threat details." It lists three "Detected items" and has a button labeled "Clean computer." It looks bogus to me -- probably if I clicked on "Clean computer" it would install something harmful. <BR> <BR> The most recent time, the message popped up when I selected the Remove Multiple Foods button.

Sun, 2 Mar 2014 16:33:56 EST entering casseroles into the food tracker I am new to the program and am excited to get started, we have a lot of casseroles in our house because they are easy to make ahead and cook after a long day at work, what is the best way of entering them, do I need to enter all the ingredients and them make as a group or is there a better way? Sun, 2 Mar 2014 15:23:40 EST Wheel spin now showing for 2/26 Was there a problem with the wheel that day? I have a routine I always follow and I remember spinning the wheel but it does not show up and ruined my streak----I always do it before I do the bonus spin even if it pops up before it, I just close it and do that spin, then click on the bonus spin---and often I have to spin it to get the bonus spin. I am bummed! <BR> Also, I read on some teams that others had this issue this week so that just made me look at my streak report. Sun, 2 Mar 2014 14:45:43 EST Progress report format Hi. Is there any other way to view your progress report without the chart line format?

Sat, 1 Mar 2014 20:00:02 EST probelm entering food into tracker I have been having a problem the last few days trying to enter food into my Nutrition Tracker. Whereas before if I was entering food into, say, early morning snack, it would remain on early morning snack until I changed the setting to another meal/snack. However, the last few days every time I enter a food, it automatically flicks back to breakfast, and I am having to change that setting with every food. For some reason, it seems o.k. with a meal - it is mostly the snacks that this is happ... Sat, 1 Mar 2014 18:32:40 EST Spark Tracker Calorie Discrepancy Hi there! <BR> <BR> I recently purchased a Spark activity tracker. Here is my problem...the treadmill says that I burned 400 calories but my tracker logged 800 calories. Why the difference? Do people find the tracker to be accurate? How does it calculate calories? <BR> <BR> Just wondering what people's experiences with this are and which source I should trust, treadmill or tracker? <BR> Cathy Sat, 1 Mar 2014 17:32:01 EST Question on activity level When putting in my information, one of the questions asked for is activity level. I work out a LOT (most days 70-80 min of cardio + strength, and about 40 minutes (total) of walking to and from school) but I'm also a med student, which means I spend a lot of time sitting in lectures or at my desk studying. So I sort of have a mixed active/sedentary lifestyle. Should I consider myself active? Sedentary? Lightly active? Sedentary + adjusting for calories based on exercise? Thanks! Sat, 1 Mar 2014 15:54:46 EST Problems with website I had to take my sync point out of the computer. I was constantly getting this web site is not responding. After I did it quit on everything but the Spark website. I am upset that this has happened. I cleaned out my cookies and got Norton's to check for virus. I don't know what to do. Spark website is also so slow. It takes forever to pull up a web page.
