Sometimes it still doesn't work correctly. Several days ago I entered 16 foods, my water and a note and received only 11 points. Guess others aren't concerned, but I like things to work the way they should.

This is confusing! I liked the old way better, you changed that, I got used to that way ....WTH?? you changed it again! Are you just creating jobs for tech people , cause changing everything 2-3 times a year is not an improvement or a way to keep your members.
You get 1 point for each food that you add to the Nutrition Tracker (up to 15 points per day). However, if you used a grouping to track any of your foods, it will only count the grouping as one item/point. Did you happen to use a grouping when you tracked?
What does a person have to do to earn 15 points on the Nutrition Tracker? Today I entered all three meals, stayed in calorie range, ran the Feed back, wrote a Note, and earned just 12 points. What am I missing?
1200 is the very minimum that a female should be eating, but what your range depends on your weight loss goals and fitness goals. If you are using the new way of tracking where your fitness activity tracked communicates with your nutrition tracker, it is helpful for people who are very active on some days and not as active on others. On the days you are more active, you may need more calories and nutrients to support that level of activity, but less on the days you aren't as active. So that is where it is helpful to eat back some of those exercise calories, so-to-speak. Here's a page that explains more about the differences of the two types of tracking (you have the option to use the other way if you would like): www.sparkpeople.com/community/help_answer. asp?id=169 .

I'm sort of confused with this new nutrition/fitness tracker. I thought that you were supposed to eat 1200 cal per day plus exercise to help loose weight. Why is it telling me to eat the same amount of calories I just burned off working out? Isn't that defeating the purpose?
