Unhappy Not cool

I just paid the premium membership today and I'm seriously thinking of canceling it because of the lack of activities listed and the lack of an advanced food search. I had a bagel today and could not find whipped cream cheese, and had to look through 10 pages to realize it.

Hey Jim. I noticed you replied to this thread several months ago, whats the progress?

Thumbs down

Hey Jim,

In January you said:

Also, keep up the suggestions for which activites to add to our database. I will do special searches for these activities and try to find some studies with good data.

Thanks again! We love the suggestions.[/quote]

It's April and not one of the requested activities has been added and there is still no way to add or customize activity calories. This seems to be a continual failure and giant disappointment with Fitday.

I had been considering purchasing the premium membership back in January, but the lack of customer service for free or paying clients makes it seem less worthwhile.

I appreciate that solutions take time, and are sometimes hard to implement, but at least have the courtesy to put an update on the forum for all of your users who are waiting for a solution/response.

I gave Fitday a chance. Maybe now I'll give someone else a chance.

I haven't seen an Admin post in over a month...was that just something they did when they launched the forums?

Hi,
I'm new here and am still finding my way round the site.
I'm a bit of a gym class junkie and can't seem to find activities that relate to the classes I do.
I usually do 3 body pump classes a week, 2 cross training, 1 kick boxing and 1 yoga.
What do I put in the activities section for the days I do these?

That sounds like a fair compromise. Thanks.

Question Calories Burned

Is there a way that I can add my own number for the calories burned on
a particular activity? I'd rather use the number from my cycling computer
then the number supplied by FITDAY

Give me some feedback on whether that would help. It would get around FitDay needing to know every activity, but isn't quite as convenient.

There's been no response to this. Where is the admin? This is a simple enhancement. We can do our own research and enter the calories burned ourselves avoiding all the issues raised.

FitDay Jim hasn't posted in over two months. There has been no activity from moderators at all in quite some time.

You may want to send something via email through the "Contact FitDay" link at the bottom of the page, as it is apparent that they are not active on the discussion boards.

99% of those built in calories burned numbers are very overestimated and wrong.. so i wouldnt even bother reading that number

That's why I asked the question. I know the calories burned numbers are wrong. My question is specifically how can I enter my own numbers.

Do you know how?
