No, but really should be following one. Probably be easier for shopping.

I agree with the previous poster, I don't use the SP meal plan, but I do plan my meals. Every Sunday we sit down and plan the menu for the week, so we can go grocery shopping. And then during the week we put each meal in SP so we can track. It works really well for us.

I do not follow the menu plan that this site offers, but I follow my own. I write out my meals that I plan to eat for the week, in my hand written food journal. I write it in pencil, in case something comes up, and I need to change/adjust something.

No, i just try to eat a healthy mix of foods and stay within my calorie range.

"Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come" (1Timothy�4:7-8)

"Jesus answered, 'The most important [commandment] is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'" (Mark 12:29-30).

Every morning I plan and track my meals for the day. Keeps me accountable and I don't have to guess at what I'll eat. Works great for me!👍

No, but it may simplify my life if I did. Answering the "what to eat" question for myself and my children takes up a lot of my time.

I can and I will - watch me!

how i track my food for the day. i make my usual omelet and all its ingredients. then i feed it in the chart and see how many calories , etc i used. then i key what i would like for lunch, see if it is fessible and then i adjust it to make sure there is too many calories or fats, etc., i do the same for dinner. i decide what i would like to have then make adjustments if i need to and then eat it. snack. i add as i have them. sugar free pudding, yogurt, nuts or a sugarfree peice of brownie or cake. as long as i dont go over my calories and or course my fruit is usually added to breakfast, lunch or dinner. it works good for me.

keep on trucking

For dinner yes. We write the menu out before shopping. For lunches we prepare items usually all vegetarian for the week.

I don't follow a menu plan of any kind (other than eating gluten free for health reasons). I just track what I eat, but not on this site.

I eat vegetarian/vegan pretty much with a little fish and chicken thrown in sometimes so planning a menu isn't all that necessary for me! I eat fruit, vegetables, beans, whole grains, plant based food so I just eat what I like since I'm a creature of habit when it comes to food~

"If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so. Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay."

"Your happiness is up to you. Whatever happened in your life to make you who you are up until this point is irrelevant. It is your responsibility now to take control and change your life to be what you want it to be. Energy and persistence conquer all things. Make time, not excuses."

I followed what I thought was healthy eating, just using the SparkPeople tracker, and lost 20 pounds last year. But starting in October, I plateaued.

This past Feb. 14, in desperation, I began following the SparkPeople Menu, as it comes on my phone. I seldom make any deviation and when I do, it is because I unexpectedly ran out of-- say, low-cal bread, and substitute an equal calorie amount of low-cal Thomas's English muffin. Or the lettuce is bad and I substitute spinach. I log everything in the SparkPeople tracker.

And since Feb. 14 I've lost an additional 15 pounds! Wow! I've lost almost as much in a little over a month as I did ALL of last year! And with no confusion or obsession! I feel so free.

I even shake my head and laugh a little at some of the menu items, like roasted beets for a snack. But I do it! I think I don't have time for all this, I am working, going to school, have kids, husband, parents... But I do it anyway! I plan ahead and pack my food to go!

It is working! I am filled with happiness to have a closer guarantee of success if I just quit whining and do it! My poor knees are so relieved.

Thank you, SparkPeople!

PS: And no, SparkPeople, I still loathe beets. And I eat them anyway!!! And broccoli makes me gassy. But I eat it, too. But your strawberry-walnut-balsamic salad is amazing. And the egg-white breakfast sandwiches. You guys rock. Keep having me try new things.

Not really. past I've used Jenny Craig during my tax season b/c I tend to gain weight during the winter and eat/sleep poorly Jan-April. I may join up again so I don't need to deal with the stress of figuring out meals (Live alone, so it's harder to plan)

Are you afraid to try or are you afraid to fail?

yes but not the SP one...
being on the worlds tightest budget means I shop the sales.
so I create a menu plan of my own based on those sales.

Every day is another opportunity to make a change!
