How to Use SparkPeople's Nutrition Tracker

Back to the Video
I plan my meals for the week so I can set up my grocery list. Can I input my meals in the tracker for the week, so I can monitor my nutritional values daily, and make any adjustments?
How do you delete a item that you added by mistake to the “new” tracker. Was easy with the “old “ tracker but I cannot seem to figure out how to do it with the new. I am using the app.
I wish to add a bunch of foods to the favorites list that I know I am going to eat in the near future, but don't want add them to my tracker right away. How do I do this?
It would be nice if your database of food had the correct nutritional values, is there any way to change the values or do you have to enter the food item again. I've noticed that on many of the shared items these values are not correct either. Can the shared items be turned off?
It did not show me how to add food from my saved recipes from SparkPeople. I have done it 3 times already and it never went to my nutrition page for breakfast even though it said it was added.
I want to be able to select foods that I do not like or that I am allergic to so they are not on the meal plan. There use to be a section for this and I developed more allergies and can not find where to select the foods.
Lvhope- Yes, if you 'Show Meal Plans' and 'Edit Nutrition Goals', scroll down to the bottom and you can choose vegetarian, low sodium etc. You can click as many of these as you want, I think.
I am vegetarian, does the meal tracker have any vegetarian meal plans?
I use this daily .... love the tracker!
I really wish there was a way to customize the meal plans. If a person is working with a nutrition pro, the Spark-made plans may not match the recommendations. I guess I'm stuck using a non-Spark method for my meal planning. :(
I use the meal plan that you give but I would like to change a meal permanently. Like Vegetarian Egg(white) Foo Young; Vegetable Fried Rice (directions). I don't want this on my plan. I don't like it. Is there any way I can remove or change it permanently?
Looking to edit daily goal for Carbs Protein and Fat. My mother is diabetic and daily recommended carbs has increased her glucose readings. Per the FAQs Note: Manually changing your calorie range will NOT automatically change your nutrient goals for carbs, fat and protein. They will still be based on the calorie range we provided to you unless you choose to edit them yourself.
Video did no show how to edit.
This was very helpful in helping me to find a easy way to use the tracker. I will now track with better success.
I wish you had a "search" button. However, regarding measurements, I've tried to weigh and it is limited to serving, oz, cups and some times grams. I might have had a hole cup of something and it only offers "serving". The flexibility is limiting.
I know I am not computer savvy, but I have typed in a food as many as 8 times and it does not set the word. Other times it has worked fine. Therefore it looks like I have skipped meals or records only two of several items. I am sure it is my fault, but can you give me some pointers? Grammap1
