emoticon I'm not sure if this is the "right" way, but what I have done is kept the foods listed, but unticked. I then click on the "add foods that aren't listed" button and search and add everything from there. Most foods are listed. This doesn't create a plan, but it enables you to track what you have chosen to eat. I hope this is of some help! As for the fitness tracker questions, I'm not sure so I'm hoping someone else can pitch in there! Good luck!

Hi! I just found SparkPeople last night, and I am trying to figure out if it will meet my needs. I have a number of food allergies, so I think I need to just take the info that is available about different foods and make my own eating plan on paper, because it's pretty much impossible for me to eat off the generated food plan (constantly having to scan the "substitute" foods list is just going to depress me -- 80% of that stuff is food I can't eat!).
I am wondering if I can tweak the fitness tracker to meet my needs, though. I walk 20-30 minutes a day, and do 15-30 minutes of stretching and strengthening exercises that are specific to my physical limitations. Is it possible to custom do a tracker, or do I need to track the walking as cardio and the other exercises as "strength"? I would like to have a separate tracker for walking, since I plan to be adding another cardio segment, and it makes more sense to me to track them separately.
Any help you can give me would be appreciated!
