No, apparently nobody has heard anything. But I have seen several other requests for this same feature. As a courtesy, I would think that at the very least they should update the status of this request, rather than having the question/suggestion come up time and time again.

Default Suggestion for improvement to Activities Tracking

The Calorie Balance tab is an excellent check on the efficacy of our efforts.
It would really help if it could also simply show the DIFFERENCE between what
we have taken in and what we have burnt up. Ultimately it is by having a deficit between the calories consumed and expended that we loose weight.

It is pretty widely stated that one needs a deficit of 3500 calories to loose 1 lb. So it would be fabulous if the Calorie balance tab could show where we are on any given week toward achieving this deficit.

Although I can be very very good sometimes, I can also easily fritter away my deficit in inattentive eating, say while cooking. It is not easy to accumulate a 3500 calorie deficit which would yield a 1 lb loss. If one was aiming for 2 lbs per week, one would need a 7000 calorie deficit. It would really be wonderful to have a report or layout that helped one keep in mind how near we are to this goal. If one could customize the goal, and then track, well that would be very fabulous.

Being able to add 50 foods a day to the Food Journal seems more than adequate. If you're having difficulty staying under the 50 items total, perhaps generating some recipes, then adding them in would do the trick.

Many times it says "you have reached the limit", when I only want to add one more food. Instead of allowing me to just remove one, I have to delete about 15 foods to accommodate the one I wanted to add. Even after I have deleted 7 items that I had already added, it still says "maximum limit reached" when I try to add back one (after deleting more than 6). I am sure this is an easy fix as well, and would be much appreciated. Thank you very much!!!
Well, using a test account, I just reached the 50 items limit for the daily Food Journal. I then deleted one item, and was able to enter one back with no problem. So it looks like this has been fixed.
