I am trying to gain weight and it appears that the site does not let you have a goal that is greater than your starting weight. This is a disappointment
Thanks for the feedback
Well, the site IS free

And the cals/nutrition is the tough part--dropping your weight goal and weigh-ins into a spreadsheet would be pretty easy.

Im following the workout on StrongLifts 5×5 Beginner Strength Training Program | StrongLifts.com and he has a free spreadsheet that graphs everything too which is very slick! This workout worked great for me, during the 2 months I did it I managed to put on 14lbs. Now Im going to start it again

It did allow a higher target weight at one point, but they changed it for some reason. I used it for that a few times and it was great. I want the feature back or disable the warning.

Why not just enter a higher starting weight by, say, 100 and then you'd see if you are gaining weight. You will know that it's minus 100. Just a thought.

Default Fitday won't record my weight b/c I want to gain...

I wanted to use fitday in order to calculate my caloric intake since I'm trying to gain weight. However, it seems that fitday only tailors to those that want to lose weight. Whenever I try to put in my goal weight I keep getting a "Your goal weight is greater than your starting weight" message. Wow, really fitday? I wanted to watch my intake so that it's balanced and not too excessive. I also would like to track how much I would need to gain the pounds by a general date, like those that are trying to do the opposite. This annoys me as much as people who assume that gaining weight is not as hard or important as losing weight. F-

C'mon, guys. It would be so simple to just disable the warning/block against the higher goals.
It's a great site, otherwise.

If you want to gain weight, read the advice of Bob Schwartz in Diets Don't Work. He owned a gym and he said that when people came to him and wanted to gain weight, he put them on a diet and they would ALWAYS without fail end up gaining weight.
