Checking your account it shows that your fitness tracker is not communicating with your program so your nutrient recommendations should not change from day to day. If you do not think the calorie range is correct then you might want to double check your goal settings. Otherwise, the breakdown for meals and snacks is just an equation based on your total.

That would be great. Thank you.

In the meantime, is it possible to NOT have the fitness that is tracked affect the nutrition totals. They go up when i input my workout. I tried to make them not connected, but it didn't seem to make any difference.

???

Part of the issue is the programming limitations to help meet your estimated needs. Our meal nutrient break downs are estimates to help people begin to manage their meals and snacks but they are not anything more than that -- just estimates.

If you have a meal plan provided by your medical team, we encourage you to follow that, and use the tracking to help you monitor how you are doing AND provide recalls to take and share with the team at your appointments.

You do have a sweet spot where the guidelines you have shared meet your meal plans which is about 41-45 grams per meal and 21-26 grams per snack. As far as changing your meal planning, we have that on our update list and we hope our small tech staff can get to that part of the list soon.

Hope that helps a little.

I can only guess that the numbers in your tracker are based on a percentage of your calorie range. The recommended carb servings are not for weightloss but regular eating habits.

hello,
i am perplexed. i just read (in a spark people email) and know from my dietitian that:

A general recommendation is to eat about 2-3 carbohydrate servings (30-45 grams) at each meal for women and 3-4 carbohydrate servings (30-60 grams) at each meal for men. Both men and women should limit carbohydrates at snacks to 1-2 carbohydrate servings (15-30 grams).

Why then is my Nutrition tracker telling me that my ranges are

Meal: 41-52 carbs
Snack: 21-26 carbs.

I'm confused. I'd like to change the numbers on my tracker to be accurate to this, but i don't think i can. CAN I??? if i cannot, then why not?

it makes no sense that the ranges are touted in articles as the right thing to do, and then on the trackers it's not the same.

thank you
