I am sick and tired of the SP "nutrition" tracker errors..fellow SP people,HELP ME so they fix this

Thursday, August 08, 2013

I have been keeping regular track of what I eat everyday for over a month. I also track fats,carbs,fiber, and vitamins. After I knew I had been sticking to eating healthy and then viewing my weekly report...I was wondering why my carbs/fats were so high and why my vitamin levels were extremely low. It turned out it wasn't my diet in error..but the foods listed on the "Nutrition Tracker" were wrong. It is VERY frustrating that I have to either view an average of 20-30 items to fine one with the correct information or literally manually type every single thing I eat into it ( which I dont always have the time to do). It is impacting my diet and is extremely frustrating. Plus if I dont catch the error then I'm the one who thinks I'm not doing well on my diet. I know I cant be the only one on SP with this problem. I have tr4ied sending email to SP but no response. Maybe if other people send emails too it will get their attention

    Are you talking about nutrition information entered by other members?

Interesting--I've been doing this for a couple of years and have only come across a couple of items that had incomplete or incorrect information. It would be handy if there were a built-in way to report the problem.

    Whenever I find a food item that is incorrect, I just enter it as a new item. I didn't know about the verify feature that SLACHETKA103145 mentioned. I also never thought of going to SP and complaining about the difference in the nutrition information. Things I'll have to keep in mind.

    In addition to the original post re: the SP Nutrition Tracker I forgot to add that I have "voted" on probably over 100 food items that were incorrect, and put that "No" the item wasn't listed properly and in the comment section I put notes for someone to please edit the items. That has been useless. But thanks for the suggestion:)

    what I have found is that if I use SP they are checking out correctly when I verify. When using other members, I try to verify and if I can't, I enter my own. Label ingredient changes are common so when ingredients change, foods have to be reentered.

I hope this helps. When you find one that is incorrect if you will click on the nutrition info you can use the verify can report there that it is incorrect and SP will ask you how.
