TIA Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:51:35 EST Meal plans How often do they change? Mine has shown the same 4-5 meals for the last 2 weeks, and the same 10 or so options. if it never changes that is okay, I will make up my own, but that looked to be one of the advantages here..

It worked when I was tracking breakfast, but didn't work when I tried to change a food selection for lunch.

Now I know that we have to have adverts but we don't need adverts that take up half the screen and take 10 seconds to load. <BR> <BR> I am fed up with clicking on some link and ending else where and spending time going back. <BR> <BR> It took me three goes to get here as the screen was jumping to somewhere I did not want to go. <BR> <BR> There is no need for advert that fill half the screen and upset members. ... Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:20:57 EST Activity Tracker and Other Goal Syncing Weirdness I've had four activity trackers since joining SP although there was a gap between Feb 21, and March 24 when I didn't have one that worked. Since I got a new one on March 25, automatically syncing my tracker with SP has gotten me 6 points in Other Goals whether or not I actually completed 6 items on the list. This has happened with two trackers, a Jawbone UP Move and a Fitbit Charge HR. <BR> <BR> I'm bringing it up now, because with the new contest starting in September, it feels like cheat...

Whenever I go to the download page, my McAfee site program stops me with a red warning. I've attempted to go from the link on the Sparks page and also by entering the link address in my browser and I get both red warning messages from each way. Why am I getting this?

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:44:58 EST Unclear SP entered food data Pumpkin seeds... <BR> <BR> All it says is pumpkin seeds, it does not state if they are hulled or not, and the data is for whole seeds, with the shell, not just the kernels. <BR> <BR> If it could be made clearer that would be useful. <BR> <BR> It makes a large impact on carbs, fat and calories.

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 09:07:26 EST what does the SP app use my camera for? I was very glad to hear about the update to the app and just wanted to download it, but ... why does it need to use the camera and microphone of my cellphone? Or access to files on my cellphone? <BR> <BR> It feels weird to ask this because this is such a great site and I'd never think that there's any ill intend, but still the thought off any app accessing images, sound files and the likes without knowing why and what for is uncomfortable. I'd be very glad for information on this! <BR> Mon, 24 Aug 2015 04:07:47 EST Reading Spark emails I don't understand why when I read Spark emails, the points are not registering/showing under my SparksPoints. Sun, 23 Aug 2015 21:35:24 EST Sugar We can track calories, carbs, protein, fat, fiber, cholesteral...Why can't we track sugar? Why does it have to be broken down into glucose, fructose, sucrose? It is on the nutritional information listing as sugar. There can be sugar under the nutritional information but it doesn't track under glucose, sucrose or fructose. <BR> <BR> Thanks Pam Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:41:10 EST Please help me get going with my UP3 Jawbone?

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 16:27:05 EST Logged in after midnight and broke my streak It shows that I've logged in 9 days and tracked food/fitness 10 days. Both should be 10 days. Problem is that I had a long day one day, and I was logging everything right around midnight. I didn't realize I hadn't done my daily spin until after midnight. I'm bummed that my streak isn't correct - is there a way to fix it? Sat, 22 Aug 2015 15:31:30 EST Problems with the new mobile app upgrade Hi, On the new Spark People mobile app upgrade I can't see the button to add the food. The drop down menu that says how much of the food to add pushes the add food button too low on the page to see. It may work with the big phones, but with my iPhone 4s I can not see the add food button. If the new upgrade only works with new phones, can I restore the old app? It worked wonderfully well. Sat, 22 Aug 2015 14:07:14 EST How do I add sugar to nutrients? I was wondering if there was a way to add sugar to my nutrients so I could keep track of how much I'm taking in. I see there's a sucrose option but I want to know how much I'm taking in of all types of sugar. Thanks :) Sat, 22 Aug 2015 13:03:13 EST Step 2 Track Your Goals on Start Page problem I can't get my goals to track/stick after I've placed the slider where it belongs.

My problem daily calories are under 1,000! I feel fine, just can't seem to get to 1,000. I feel because my exercise routine is not aerobic, or running, cause I'm 63 yrs. old, and a heart transplant.

The newest problem is that it is not tracking all of my steps. I have been walking about the same routes for the last 4/5 weeks but the past 10 days or so my tracker is way off on steps. I'm still walking about 75 minutes a day but some days it records only 1500 steps and others 7500. <BR> <BR> Any ideas on what might be the problem and how to fix it?

Okay, I can deal. <BR> <BR> However, my biggest issue with this new release are the ads. I paid for this app before it was free. I realize it's a free app now, and that SP gets its funding from ads, but the app wasn't free back when I bought it on January 10, 2013, at 9:15:35pm PST, for $3.99 on Google play. I can be so precise because I found the receipt in my ema... Tue, 11 Aug 2015 01:04:53 EST How do I "Leave" an inactive team?

For example, I walked 47 minutes last night, it recorded only 816 steps. It cannot be true. I know I walk at least 100 steps per minute usually.

For example it defaults to the last meal entered. So for some reason at 8 AM in the morning in my local time zone, it thinks I'm entering dinner for today. It would be extremely helpful if the tracker had a little bit of common sense and looked at the local time zone on the machine which should not be hard to do, and based the default meal entry to what makes sense for that time of day.

Wed, 5 Aug 2015 21:20:10 EST Nutrition Tracker can't count! I've posted about this before, but the problem hasn't gone away: the system seems unable to cope with food item changes. It does enter the new values, but the end addition is often wrong, whereas the daily nutrition report is correct. Moral: when you change foods do the additions yourself!

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:22:15 EST Emails for June 24 not giving points Hello, all 3 emails for June 24 (Best of, Recipe, Exercise Tip) are not giving points.

However I was never given any points and my email points for today (June 24) is 0. Is there an issue with emails today? Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:07:03 EST Quick way to count calories? Is there a quick way for me to add a food and calorie count without having to search for or add a particular brand? For example: pizza slice 360 calories. I find the tracking very tedious and time consuming. Sometimes it is just quicker for me to note the calories from the nutrition panel than to find the exact brand that someone else posted, only to find out that what they entered is different than what my box tells me. Also, I don't want to input all my entries because I don't have a lot...

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 17:12:34 EST Fitbit tracker steps different from Spark people I looked back on what my steps were a couple of weeks ago and realized that the fitbit steps were incorrect, there were two days that week that I did over 20 K steps and on one of them SP only had slightly above 10 K steps, I started looking closer and realized that many days are incorrect. I had assumed that Fitbit was syncing with SP but apparently it does not later in the evening, a lot of my steps are late since I work nights. Do I have to manually sync them after midnight or should it...

Thanks Mon, 22 Jun 2015 09:05:52 EST featured recipe pictures are not correct I understand that you cannot make sure that every picture is correct. I do think that when a recipe is featured in the Daily Spark and is sent to our email the picture should be of the featured recipe. This has happened a number of times. I have seen a picture that interests me and then when I go to the actual recipe it does NOT contain the ingredients pictured. I stopped looking at your recipes because of this, but then today again i was tricked and frustrated. I wanted the pictured rec...

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 08:49:46 EST My BMR from mobile app differs from website BMR I use both the mobile app for iPhone and the Spark site to enter nutrition and exercise data, I just noticed the BMR listed on the calorie differential reports do no match up.

My question is, the daily amounts shown in the nutritional report for my vitamins and minerals, are they grams, milligrams, micrograms? its not labeled so I just don't want to assume. Thu, 18 Jun 2015 00:35:37 EST Can I edit nutrition entries I entered myself? I accidentally entered a nutrition entry with the calories from fat in the fat grams area. Can I change this? Wed, 17 Jun 2015 15:45:26 EST Logging in When I go to each email I receive I have to log each time to spark to see the topic. When I log in I tell it to "remember me".

I go into community, but I can't figure out how to get points by "liking a community post". How is this done? Wed, 17 Jun 2015 00:33:41 EST spark tracker is not communicating with computer Everything seems to be working fine on its own. Spark tracker is counting steps according to the lights on it. Program on computer is communicating with usb dongel and every thing shows that it is working, green light on dongel and computer sees that it is in the usb port. However no info is being uploaded to the computer. Green light on dongel does not flicker like it normally will when it is uploading. According to the info on the dashboard it is the correct tracker. <BR> <BR> Any ideas?

Most of my classes that I teach are cardio based Insanity , PIYO,Turbo Kick and Surfset so it's there an app I could add? Or should I look for another fitness tracker?

It is too small for old arthritic hands to get a good grip on when trying to change the battery. And the back of it does not come off as easily as shown in the video. my language is going to get very technical at this point--the light on the little thingie I plug into my computer turned red and my spark icon on my task bar said I had no data center connection.
