I had thought about doing this. Getting him to sit down and enter his information is the trick. I might have to get the information and just do it for him.

Right now we are off the Spark meal plan. I'm trying to get the fridge and freezers cleaned out for gardening season.

You don't have to "use" his account. Set it up, input his details, and see what range he gets. That's how much more than you he needs to eat. Then continue using your meal plan and give him that 15% more (or whatever it is) than you get.

You have the option to "choose" from the optional meal plans as well as them being randomly generated. Next to the Meal Plan in the green box it will have a button that says "Change" just click it and it will give you all the Spark meal plans to pick from.

Can you set up the page just to get his calorie range, and then have him eat that much more per day? Men need a lot more food than we ladies do. I had my husband set up an account and track for a few weeks to see where we were and it turned out that I was underfeeding him.

If you have him track even for a week or two you can learn a lot about where he should be. Then you can transition to just one tracker if you feel comfortable with that.

I too hope someday for shared family trackers!!

When each person sets up their own account, frequently, different menus are recommended for each person. I want us eating the same thing. I just need to know how much more food he should be eating. I need a calorie range for him.

Why not have him set up his own Spark account? It will give him a personalized calorie range upon entering all his info.

My husband and I recently used the Spark Menu for a week. For the most part, we really enjoyed it. I did tweek a few things. ( I dislike all the cold meals during wintertime.) I would like to know how many more calories my husband should be eating than I? How do I calculate it? He is small. 5'6" and he would like to lose 7 pounds. We would like to use the Spark Menu recommended for me and adjust the calories. We really enjoyed the variety of the menu. Several meals were delicious, and I would never have thought to put together some of the food combinations.
