Besides God helping me, one of the things I used to lose weight was the nutrition page here on Sparkpeople. It is located in the, my tools tab. It is the 2nd box from the top. It is called, my nutrition. I believe it is the tools Sparkpeople offer. If you ask anyone who achieved or is working on achieving their goal, they will tell you they used the nutrition page.
WHY IS THE NUTRITION PAGE A HELPFUL TO USE?
It tells you how much protein, calories, & carbs, are in each type of food you eat.
It breaks down the calories in each meal, tells you how many calories you have left to eat each day as you eat each meal. It helps you stick to your calorie range.
The nutrition page also stores complete information of calories, minerals, & vitamins, of meals that you create for yourself.
Or sparkpeople can create meals for you to eat.
There are so many good things about this toll that I could not possibly list them all here. There is an added benefit though besides losing weight with it. each day it is completed you get points!
I hope you all have a wonderful and peaceful Christmas. I will be going to PA this Wednesday. We will be coming back the following Sunday.
The reason I wrote this thread was to announce a new thread in the introduce yourself forum. The thread is called, advice for new members. I did not write it. It was written by Sparkpeople employees. I want to bring attention to this thread to all of you for different reasons.
I want to have a place for you to go to receive advice. There are so many different things to do here, and so much to learn,it can be overwhelming. Use this thread as a place to ask questions and receive answers. I have created this thread for that very reason. I have always told members to email me if they have questions. You are still welcome to do so. However, it is very important that you receive support from me, so I also want to give you another way to receive help.
Please use this thread to give advice,answer questions, or leave comments about tools that have helped you here on sparkpeople. You are free to ask questions as well. As you know sparkpeople always change things to make this site better and better as time goes on; which means there is always new stuff for all of us to learn.
