Thank you for the responses. I will also try to crop the page. It was said elsewhere to leave the pop up blocker turned off for this site, so I didnt try that, I will read Coach Denise article as well. Thank you

Yes. Enable your popup blocker. Install an adBlock.

This is happening to me too, and I realized its because every time I cursored up to the top of the page to "add food" my cursor was running over the Pure Protein add on the left column and it immediately pops up to the PP ad.
So here's what fixed it - I resized my window to crop out the top and the side Pure Protein ads, and that way your mouse can't go anywhere near them. It hasn't popped us since....hope that works for you!
and it also helps shut out most of the distracting animation in the ads, which is also annoying...
Can someone please tell me what I am doing here. Every time I try to enter a food in to the tracker in Internet Explorer 11, I get a full page popup for Pure Protein. I understand advertising keeps this site free, but this is way too much already. I would rather pay a fee then have to be constantly retyping items because this POS pop up keeps showing. Is there a way to shut this off or stop it from happening EVERY TIME I try to add a food? Thanks
