I am new to this site and trying to lose a little weight. I started off by trying to use the google plugin and was very happy with it until recently. In the past couple of days, I have found that I cannot add food to my calendar any longer. I go through all the same motions that used to work but when I click add item, it simply does nothing or moves the current view of the web page up. This happens in firefox, safari and ie inside mac, linux and windows... see I have tried everything!

So, I decided to come here and try to do it instead of going through igoogle. I thought this would be a good solution. So, I started re-entering all of my information. But after adding about 5 different exercises from yesterday, I realized that it was listing my calories burned as 0 for each exercise. I have entered my body weight.

Does anyone know why igoogle won't let me add new foods or does anyone know my my calories burned here show as 0 despite adding exercises?

I got the calorie thing to work. Apparently I had to pick a diet and then officially weigh in. I avoided this during my initial sign-on to the site because I am not really using a diet plan... just trying to exercise more and eat less.

You can choose "my own diet" though and then you can do whatever you want to do.
