As EEVEE1 wrote, there are meal plans on the nutrition page if you want to use those. Just click under the date where it says tracker options and you can pick menu planner.

It is a lot of information at first but just start small and it will get easier. When I first started I used My Sparkpoints page which is under the My Trackers tab. You can go down the list and pick those items to do or not, for each day. For me, the nutrition tracker was the most important to start. Then I added other things as it got easier. javascript:void(0)

also on your start page (the one you automatically go to when you log on) there is a tab on the right hand side of your page near the top that says "how to use this site" it will give you a choice for videos, getting started and frequently asked questions

Welcome to the team!

Here is a link to the page where you can find the videos www.sparkpeople.com/resource/videos.

p

look just to the right of the fitness and cooking videos.

It seems like a lot right off the bat, so just do little bits until you get used to it so you are not overwhelmed.

Yes a lot of people do their own menu and don't bother turning on the meal plans, but I found them very helpful at the beginning to get used to what a meal should look like.

Welcome! I've been here only a few weeks but I think that when I signed up I was given the option to set up my main page. You can set it to private if you want to. There is a Spark diet that you can find under "Healthy Lifesytyle" which is one of the orange tabs at the top of this page. A lot of us are on our own diets and use this site for support. For example, I'm on the 17 day diet plan and I found a team here with others who are also following that diet plan. If you go up to the very top there is a help button which will help you learn about Spark points etc.

Hi there- I'm brand new to this site and am very overwhelmed. So much information but nothing I want to know about RIGHT NOW.
ie: where is a menu planner?
Where is an actual diet?
I click and click and find nothing but overviews.
I see that there is a video for the nutrition tracker but are there any other tutorials?
