I've been a member of sparkpeople.com for a looooong time. Since 2008 or even sooner. They are usually very good, but I stumbled across something that's frustrating.

sparkpeople.com is a site where a person can log their activities, calories, get information about their lifestyle, etc. It's a good site and has helped me lose weight in the past.

However, perhaps they should start thinking about who they accept advertising money from. I know they run ads so they can offer the product free of charge. But is this appropriate for a website that wants us to change our lifestyle?



Seriously, sparkpeople?

You can click on the Learn More link and apparently there's an option to ask them to stop showing specific ads. They act pretty quickly on things like that, too.

While I see your point, there are certain items on their menu that are kind of semi-healthy (i.e. the chili, which isn't featured there for some reason, you're killing me here Wendy's!) and isn't it kind of up to the individual to like... get ONE item from the dollar menu instead of four? One item for lunch is probably just fine as long as you calorie count for the day. I guess I'm of the camp that if you eat the right amount of food, it doesn't really matter what you eat (short term anyway... although that guy DID lose 14 pounds on the twinkie diet... LOL)
