Thank you so much, Becky....I am not a diabetic, but just want to keep it that way....watching all of my nutrition is a lot of work, but worth it. Thanks for your reply.

If you are using our "Diabetes" Sparkpeople Nutrition Tracker; then you can not change your protein, carb or fat range. It is set up based on diabetes recommendations.

If you are using our regular Nutrition Tracker; then you can change your ranges for protein, carbs and fat. Please follow the steps that SLIMMERKIWI provided below. If you need more specific assistance with this, please let me know.

SP does that automatically. Do you have a different range? If so, then on your main Nutrition Page up the top left and under the date is "Change Tracker Options" - Hover your cursor on that and a drop-down menu will appear. Click on "Change diet settings" The page that appears has "Suggested Nutrition Program & Goals" along with the various nutrients. Click on "Edit" which ever ones you want to edit, but remember to hit save before you leave.

If you don't have a Dietitian then you may find it beneficial to ask for one to ensure that the range that you eat is a healthy one for you!

Do you have an "edit nutrition goals" button? You might need to scroll down, on the lower right.

I am not a diabetic, yet I cannot set up a protein intake and carb intake limit in my nutrition tracker. Can someone help me? I saw that diabetics cannot track that on Sparkpeople, but I am not a diabetic. Help, please. I have a solitary kidney, but it is healthy. I just want to add carb and protein guidelines to my nutrition daily tracker. Thanks for your help!
