I like the old tracker, too! To me it was easier to use. Bring it back!

I like the new tracker. I was using both for a while (since jan 2). And decided to go with new one. The main thing I like is on bottom of nutrition tracker it says the more you burn the more you can eat, I find this a useful reminder to excersise and it encourages me to " burn" more calories.on days when I've chewed off to many calories or am feeling like a extra snack. I also like the sayings up in the left hand corner that change daily uplifting. The only thing I don't like is that when searching foods you have to manually erase it used to start fresh each time you went on it all you had to do is type in food but now and this is with old and new trackers you have to erase previous food searched. This does take a little longer to do impute but not real bad as I can live with it if I have to. :).

Add me to the army of frustrated users. I've tried it in Chrome, Firefox and Safari and each one is slower than molasses in January, and each has a glitch of some sort. I'm on a mac, which may be the problem, but really can't you make your site universal? It used to be!

I don't like the new tracker either. I was trying to log my food and I got frustrated with it. It does take twice as long. Please bring back the old one. Maybe we could have a choice of using the old or new, that would be great!! emoticon

Agree with SCUBAk, I like the old tracker, must more user friendly with my iPad. New one takes me twice as long, getting frustrated with it. emoticon

Believe it and you can achieve it!

Don't look back, keep going forward.

Don't let yesterday use up to much of today.

SCUBAK - It looks like you didn't spin the wheel on 11/20/13. If you go to your SparkPoints page and go to that date, you will see that it was not spun for that day, so your current streak for that is 2 days.

I am not liking the new tracking page. I log in everyday for points and spin the wheel. It says I have only a "1" day streak, then a "21" day streak...
I am not getting it. And where is the water tracker?
I like the other one that was a quick trip to complete and navigate and if you wanted/needed more info, then you could easily find it.

I totally agree...give us the old tracker back.

I have tried to use the new tracker about every other week since you first rolled it out. It has not improved over time since it was first introduced. It was slow in the beginning and is SLOW..SLOW..SLOW still!!

Has it been tested with those of us with large Favorite data bases? With the old tracker, I was able to input a meal in a minute or two at most. It took maybe 5 minutes to input all meals and snacks if entered all at once. The groups and receipes data bases were also very fast. Tonight with the new tracker it took 30+ minutes and was extremely frustrating waiting for the favorites data base to load and search each time. The ability to enter the first letter of an item, then search is impossible or horrendously slow. It also "hangs" and then reboots the screen with my Favorites data base. I don't want to spend that much time inputting my meals when you had a wonderful solution with the old tracker.

The Nutrition Tracker was the tool that first attracted me to Spark People. This is such an important tool for me and such a serious problem for me that I will have to look for another site to use. I DO NOT want to leave SP. I have been a successful member since 2009, but this is too important to me to use a ridiculously slow product, this new tracker. You've taken a turn for the worse, not an improvement for me.

Give us both, if others find the new tracker beneficial to their progress.

The old tracker is gone--I know all about the new tracker, I just don't like it. Why can't we have both options? And, please put the water tracker back on top.

Not a fan of the changes.
