Is there any way to add (or suggest) a new activity?

I can't find a match for all my activities on the current list.

I've had the same problem on other sites, where I can't find exactly what I want so I have to pick something else that seems like it might be equivalent.

Specific case in point: I regularly do Vinyasa yoga, which is quite vigorous -- definitely not just "stretching".

Second example: I don't think using a stationary bike is exactly the same as "biking", so I wish there were separate entries for it.

My 2 cents as a new user,

You go right down to the bottom of the activity list and click on other it then lets you add activities, but you will have to find out how may calaries are being burned

Same here. I've been adding yoga and kind of winging it on the calorie estimate. Calling it 400/hr. I might have to add it to my exercise default since adding an "other" exercise on the mobile phone app is buggy. Weird that they have a gazillion foods in the database, but only like 10 exercises.

Aha! At some point it crossed my mind that I should look for an "other" option, but then I forgot to check. Thanks for the tip, nervanabike.

I do wish they would expand the database. I keep finding more things that I miss. For instance, one of the sites I used before let you distinguish between walking on flat vs hills, and also had an "under load" option for hiking. Sure, I can fudge those things by just pretending I went faster, but I would rather be as accurate as possible.

Thanks for the replies as I was wondering how to track vinyasa too as I know it's not "light" stretching.
Keep in mind my starting weight as of March 2012 was 198! I just didn't want to record it, so depressing......now empowering to know I can lose!

I go down to the bottom and add the new activity after I've gotten the calories burned amount from another web site like Calorie Count.
