Yes, I try and use it daily. It helps me to keep up with what I've ate and whether it's nutritious or not. It's good to keep myself accountable.


One day at a time.

I use the nutrition tracker pretty much faithfully. I started in July 2008 and have lost a total of 180 lbs. I have maintained my weight loss of 120 lbs. for 10 close to 11 years
During the last 10 years I have lost the last 60 lbs. I could not have done it without sparkpeople and my diet and fitness buddy who has lost approx. the same amount of weight. Of course we live in the same household so that really helps. Diet and exercise and following the coaches advice. Of course I was so ready for this healthy lifestyle change. From the very beginning I said I know nothing the coaches know everything.

Yes, as much as possible. But tbh I've found this tracker harder to use than another app I used for many years. I also wish I could transfer all the recipes and data that I recorded over the years to Sparkpeople.

Change is hard, but change is good.

No. Use a different app and track everything every day.

To CALGAL10831 - when you gave up carbs did you make sure you were eating plenty of protein and healthy oils? That might make a BIG difference in a person's moods. Everyone is different, but I do not lose weight at all when eating simple carbs, even when I cut calories severely. On the other hand, if I eat a ton of veggies with protein and fruits, the weight falls off. Have you had luck after adding carbs?

I agree with ENOCRECMAS - I've used myfitnesspal for years and find Spark to be very cumbersome and the calorie values seem to be off - either higher or lower than what the actual food package says.

Truthfully I do not track my food on Spark, I prefer tracking with myfitnesspal - I just find it more user friendly. emoticon I do track my exercise with Spark, though!

I been tracking on Spark for awhile now; but when I stop tracking my food intake I start to gain weight, I believe it because I don't really pay attention to what i put in my mouth, This help me to pay attention to what I eat and it make me accountable for my weight,

Yes, even though I also write it down in a note pad that I keep in the kitchen or the office. I like that SP tally's the calories and breaks down the category of those calories for me. I have a difficult time with carbs, because for the last several years I keep hearing that they aren't good for you. But when I eliminate them I get cranky! So I'm just going a day at a time. I've lost at least 100 pounds since 2011, I lose 25 then regain 30, then do it over again, but I never keep it off. I know it's a mental thing. I'm hopeful this time around. I know the tracking works when I do it!

I have been on and off a few times. It works best when I use SP to *plan* rather than track. I am much more likely to stick to my plan if I have it written out ahead of time and know that it meets all my targets. I also make myself go back at the end of the day to edit the plan with what I actually ate -- to keep me honest. It works best if I force myself to plan at least a day ahead, and then to edit, or record what I actually ate THAT DAY -- putting it off till the next day gives me too much chance to cheat - both on the eating and reporting.
