  • This was a very helpful and useful tutorial. Thanks for posting it, Denise! - 1/16/2015 1:04:31 PM
  • Hi Everyone, I am new with SparkPeople today, 01/05/15). Is there a page where I can check off a list of foods I like or will eat in order to make a meal planner for me to lose weight? Help - 1/5/2015 3:46:19 PM
  • I am logging in today and trying to track my nutrition and there doesn't seem to be a search box . I have used this site many times without any problems is anyone else experiencing this? - 1/1/2015 12:13:04 PM
  • The only problem that I've come across is that I can't use the app without the wifi. Otherwise I really love the programs and the people that I have met. - 11/21/2014 8:20:01 PM
  • Just found how to change my fat/carb/protein presets. On the lower left of the nutrition tracker for the Weekly Progress, click "add more nutrients".

    A menu will pop up: "Suggested Nutrition Program & Goals". Each item has an "edit" button that you can click to enter your own ranges for fat, carbs, etc....

    No idea why I couldn't find it before! - 8/2/2014 10:39:09 PM
  • How do you know what to "Name the Group"? I am sooo frustrated with determining this GF menus! - 7/20/2014 11:20:20 AM
  • I also clicked on the video and nothing showed up. I am trying to enter the search engine for "What did you eat?" without success. - 6/30/2014 2:07:17 PM
  • I looked at the video but it didn't show me how to add new foods. How is this done?

  • Can someone please help me? I often use Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsay receipes or other receipes from my cooking books. How can I track a serving without having to share them on Sparkpeople (given that they're not my receipes)?

  • I'm trying to adjust my carb range on the tracker and I can't seem to do it. Does anyone have the answer to this problem. - 5/7/2014 7:45:40 AM
  • If you scroll down to the bottom of the nutrition tracker, on the lower right hand side, it gives you an option to change your nutrition goals. - 5/2/2014 9:04:02 PM
  • You can change also the preset nutrients go to the my nutrition on the bottom of the page in the weekly progress table you'll find the option ad more nutrients. Here you are also able to change the presets. Hope this is helpful for you. - 4/15/2014 9:34:01 PM
  • I love SparkPeople and have been using it for years but I find it EXTREMELY UNHELPFUL that you cannot adjust your own carb/protein/fat ranges. People are NOT cookie-cutter and not everyone will lose with the ranges you guys have determined (which my nutritionist took one look at and freaked....wayyyy too much sugar for anyone with PCOS or diabetes). I think it would be great to have the sparkpeople ranges as a "normal" option, but allow us to change this on our own. - 4/10/2014 1:11:27 AM
