After using this site for about 3 weeks I have encountered some things with this site that I think should be changed.
1) All comment/forum/journal postings should have the tools available to edit/delete/quote/send message. I hate that some places don't allow you to do that so when you make a typo, you are stuck with it!
2)Why can't all of the reply boxes be large like the journal and topic post boxes? It would make it so much easier to proof read what you wrote (and isn't it funny that the smallest boxes are also the ones that don't let you edit them after you've posted them!!).
3) When a member records a weight gain that might be a little higher than normal, the fatsecret site shouldn't have a pop up that says you are gaining weight at an alarming rate! Where's the encouragement and positive support? Couldn't they use a bit of light humor? People feel bad enough as it is, they don't need the computer ragging on them!
That's about all I've discovered so far. If anyone else has found something they feel needs improvement, please add it in here. Maybe someone from the fatsecret site will heed our plea!

I agree Evelyn that it would be great if we could edit all areas of posting and not just our journals and the community message posts. So one supporter here on that one!
Ooh... I'd also ask that Fatsecret don't edit the Food name's in the food database, without perhaps checking with us first. UK
WW Beef Lasagne
is spelt with an
on the end... I presume it's been changed to a US spelling... Lasagna? Not sure... but it's a UK product... so is definitely spelt Lasagne over here.
I'd also love to be able to change my start weight so that my tracker reflects my true loss. Currently it's out by 4lbs.
I did email them about this and they said to try editing the weight... but this doesn't change the position of my starting line... just sticks my first weigh-in up above it.

Do you like cottage cheese or does it make you cringe?
It depends. I can't stand eating it with fruit or anything sweet, like most people do.

I love coconut water & prefer Harmless Harvest raw coconut water. It's more expensive, but worth it, I think. I get it at Whole Foods or a local health food store.

Absolutely right. We're only hurting ourselves. All foods aren't created equal. Yoplait has high fructose corn syrup. Chobani has cane sugar and Fage has something else. And each one has a ...
