Thank you for the heads up. Since I am wayyyyy too much of a fitness junkie working out up to 3 hours a day, I found this so helpful... sometimes 1850 calories isn't enough to cover 3 fitness classes worth of work lol

I'm glad that Spark offers change! (However, I don't think I'm going to switch over at this time either...)

Melody! I thought I'd spend a few minutes looking to see if Spark had a Suggestion Box---and lo and behold! they do!

Thanks Susy, I read it...not sure I want to switch..too bad we can't do a trial run on it..their suggestion of opening a new account to try it is a little more effort than I am willing to put into it :) I may do it once I am in maintenance..but trying to lose I am on a pretty set amount of caloric intake that I calculated myself..but glad to see they are making changes..Speaking of changes, where do I put in suggestions on changes I would like to see made? I really, REALLY want them to add "time" to the nutrition tracker..I am bad about remembering when I ate (silly I know)..but I do try to eat every 4 hours so..anyway that is off topic, thanks for posting as I never seem to see when new things are done til much later!

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The biggest issue I see is that you can't change back if you don't like the new system.

I think I'll stick with the system as it has been. Thanks for sharing!

Hey team!

Just so that you don't miss out... Spark has a brand new feature you may be interested in knowing about:

Calorie Ranges Based on Fitness Tracking

www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?po
st
=new_feature_calorie_ranges_based_onR>_fitness_tracking


So... as an example: the "old" way was a standard number of calories; i.e., maybe 1,800 per day. It didn't change.

But now... with this new feature, you can enter your activity level, and your calorie range will go up (or down) depending on how active you are THAT day.

I am by no means an expert on this topic, so please, please go read the article and see if this is something you are interested in.

I -did- read that once you change your settings, it's permanent.
