I actually had to think about what you were saying! I turned off the meal plans about a week after I started here and completely forgot about them. So I obviously don't follow them. I do try to make a meal plan for the week, or at least somewhat have an idea of the meals I want to make each week, but basically we stick to fish and chicken with steamed veggies so it's pretty simple.
I used the Myfitnesspal when I first tried losing weight, but I really wasn't too fond of it and find this site easier to use. Now I only keep it because it has my original weight and the first few weigh-ins I did before I moved to SP.

I did at first, before I joined SP. I just use SP now, and turn off the meal plans and enter everything in myself. I find most everything I eat in the database, especially since I don't eat a ton of packaged stuff, and the packaged stuff I do eat stays pretty much the same all the time.
i pretty much eat what I want...I just do the portion thing and stay in calore range.I tell ya the portion and lots of water is the key. I have fitness pal on my phone and the only time I use it is if Im on the go or at someones house and it's a new food
I have a myfitnesspal, but I've used SP for so long, I prefer it. (I turn the meal plans off.) I also don't like that fitness pal doesn't give you a range, just adds calories to your day when you exercise. I think that encourages people to eat too little.
So, I've looked over the nutrician on this site and the meal plan is just too overwhelming for me. I looked at the grocery list and thought, "Yeah right. That would cost WAY too much money." Does anyone use this site plus my fitness pal to track calories? I know there is a tracker on here too, but the database on my fitness pal is much larger and therefore more user-friendly in my opinion.
