Added My Quick Check Veggie/fruit Count To My Nutrition Tracker!
Members Were Sparked
I started with SP on January 21,2010. At that time they did not have a quick check for veggies & fruit.Now THEY DO ,so I added it to my Nutrition Tracker! Getting enough fruits and vegetables in my diet is a challenge for me! So it HELPS ME TO SEE AT-A -GLANCE how my totals in the fruit & veggie group are doing! An ADDED PLUS is seeing myself ATTAIN the 8 fruits& veggies daily! I already LIKE the water glass feature! If you are interested in adding the fruit.veggies to your Nutrition Tracker--
the HOW DO I USE THIS PAGE at the top of the Nutrition Tracker would explain in a video or go to Message Boards--Site/Tech Help and ask for help there.

When I pack my lunch for work, I make sure I include a zipper bag of baby carrots. They're sweet and crunchy and so good for you. You can dip them in hummus or Greek yogurt or anything other type of healthy dip. You can also substitute celery sticks or green pepper..291
It's perfect in lieu of potato chips or french fries. You can also count them as a veggie when you track your nutrition
On your nutrition tracker page, there's a link near the top to "change nutrition goals". Clicking that link takes you to a page where you can add any of dozens of nutrients for your nutrition tracker to calculate. Examples are calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium, potassium, glucose, sucrose. The additional nutrients show in the chart at the bottom of your nutrition tracker page and help you watch your daily intake.
Knowing something about psychology, I know it's important to get correct proportions of sodium, potassium, and calcium for proper brain function - and body. I started tracking those nutrients and am amazed at how out of proportion my intake was. Eye-opening! At least knowledge is power!
Nice and simple! I use the daily nutrition tracker to maintain a 2000 calorie per day intake and do 30 minutes of cardio a day. Thats it! Im having pasta, wine, potatos and steak too!!!! Of course Im eating many fruits and veggies but just count them calories with SPARKPEOPLE and let it work!!!!
