Just wondering if this is happening to others-- trying to go to the FatSecret home page, keep ending up at "My FatSecret"?

I thought that was the Home page

Well, before clicking on the big "fatsecret" icon above the search box would go to a main page, which was basically a snapshot of recent activity across all areas of the site. It would show recent weigh-ins, active forum posts, new recipes, journal entries, etc... not unlike the main "Community" page, really. Not sure why I liked going to the home page better... maybe because I could see new forum posts in one click instead of two?

Edited to add: OK it is only one click for both... maybe there was less scrolling down on the home page?

I have bookmarked the main fatsecret page, it just says error when I go on it, it's either a glitch or they ditched the main page.

From the tech team...
We made an intentional decision to “retire” the old and much loved home screen in favor of making “My FatSecret” the default page for logged in users. We did this recognizing that the information on the home screen was largely duplicated elsewhere in the site and easily reached from either the My FatSecret page or the Community page. We found that users wanted a quick and convenient way to reach their My FatSecret home and most user prefer having the My FatSecret news screen as their home.
We’ll be working further to improve the web site and navigation and welcome user feedback.
All the best,

The FatSecret team

Just have to say this hits on one of my pet peeves-- "welcoming feedback" from users for an unannounced change!

I never went to the home page. I found it more of an annoyance than a help. Just me?

Exercise isn't diet. Diet isn't exercise. Binging trumps exercise.

Android app "Recently Eaten" no longer per meal
Thanks bAlanCer. I was surprised no one had brought it up yet. Perhaps most people contacted directly. I hope this was an oversight and not a design decision.

How do I change the RDI number?
The RDI number seems to be set for a guy with a better resting metabolic rate then mine.

UPDATE: the .CA site does not have reporting, the .COM does.
