Last time I checked Sparkpeople was blocked in China, but seems ok today... if a little slow. Are any of you guys still around? Would love to contact other expat sparkpeople in China.

Greetings to Everyone,

I have lived in Shanghai for over two months now. I am adapting, but it's a challenge. I have the work out taken care of but the nutrition part is a little tricky. There are a few of the same vegetables here as in the states, but I need some help. What's good?

Thanks,
HavPlenty18

Oh and yes, get a VPN. I would be lost without mine.

Answer to your question. Yes, the "Chinese Great FireWall" does block many websites. What you need is a VPN. There are many different types some that you pay for and some that are free. I use the FreeGate. http://freegate.en.softonic.com/ It works well for me and it's free. I know some people that use other VPN they paid for.

Where a bouts in China are you moving?

I am moving to China soon and know that Facebook, Twitter etc are blocked. Is Sparkpeople.com accessable in mainland China?

Thankyou:)
