Like many of the other responses, I don't use the meal plans. I've been simply tracking my own nutrition and reviewing the daily reports to see if I need to make any adjustments on where my calories are coming-from.

Don't make it too hard or you'll stop trying. Use it your way.

Just use a daily appt. calendar booklet, or wall calendar, or even buy a cute notebook and write it down, simple. I take mine to the dietitian, so it's easy for her to see it. Keep it simple. You can save the notebooks for future reference, as you get older, you may be surprised by how you change your attitudes about what foods you eat as time goes by.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

I'd agree-- turn off the meal plans, and enter your own food choices. You can set up "favorites" for the things you eat often, and that makes entering it faster.

Probably the key thing is to confirm that you are having an adequate intake of balanced nutrition.

You can make whatever you need to work

If you click on any food in the meal plan, a list of substitutions will come up. Hopefully that will help, but if you have a lot of dietary restrictions, I agree you might want to consider turning off the meal plan and just tracking your own food. If you do that, you'll still be able to see how you're doing relative to your recommended calorie and nutrient ranges.

Are you using the Spark Menus?

I turned off the Spark Menus and track my own food. I only looked at them to give me ideas. Other than that I don't use them at all.

I hope that this helps

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

Please read my blog

I don't eat dairy...I drink rice or almond milk...I do eat some fish but no other meats. I don't do soy or most breads, per say. There are no substitutes on my daily choices? Is this even going to work for me?
