KITTY1970 - sparkpeople has different teams, like we are on now. Within the teams there are message boards, like the one we are posting on right now. However, there are also very large message boards/threads that the whole site uses. The experts of sparkpeople frequent those message boards and give suggestions based on their expertise and experience.
If we have a question related to exercise, or nutrition, or problems with the site, we are to post our questions there so they can answer us.
The link to the main message boards can be found at the top of this page under the heading "Community". Roll the mouse over 'community' and the list of choices will come up. 'message boards' is one of them. Click on that and it will take you to the main message board page. On that page it will list the different boards. Nutrition, exercise, panic button, etc. are just some of the choices.
Another way to get there is to click on the link below:
Hi there. Good for you for making a commitment to follow the meal plans and the nutrition tracker. I am sure that will make a tremendous difference in your progress!
I have never used the meal plans that sparkpeople provide. I have a lot of allergies and food preferences/likes and dislikes, so I find it much easier to eat my food that I usually make, and track it after the fact. Over time I have come to know how much I can eat at one time, and still remain within my calorie, fat, protein, carb levels.
You may find it easier to do that as well.
Alternately, if your husband is joining sparkpeople as well, he can set up his own page as well, and begin using the trackers the same way. Presuming your dh is bigger and stronger than you, he will need a higher amount of calories, protein, carbs, etc. than you (bigger people have higher nutritional needs as they burn more calories, and also, the more muscle mass you have, the more you burn as well).
As Sam says, if you want specific nutrition questions answered, it is a good idea to post to the main message boards. The experts on the site can then answer.

Dinner i can cover but what about everything else.i dont want to be making two meals, and i dont want to shop for different food.
