Hey Kim! I really, really, really appreciate any feedback about the FFP or ANY of the tools here on WebMD! And I'm sorry you're having such a frustrating time.
I did a little digging to find out more info about the update - it includes new features based off feedback from users. Here's info about the changes that might help you make sense of the update:
How you can add items from your "Frequents" was tweaked so that this feature now works on tablet. Instead of dragging and dropping items to your log, you can now click on the Frequents tab (next to Search) and click on the item you'd like to add. You can also click on multiple items to add at once if you'd like.
The frequents feature was moved from the right rail to a tab labeled "Frequents" next to "Search". In order to be tablet friendly, users can now click on the tab labeled "Frequents" and click on the item they would like to add. Users can even click on multiple items to add at once now.
A new calorie goal was added which factors in the users recommended food calorie target and their fitness calorie target (calorie goal = calories aimed to consume from food minus the calories burned from fitness).
The recommended fitness calorie target was modified to include ONLY the additional calories a user should aim to burn. Previously a weekly fitness calorie target was offered that factored in calories already burning (just through living and breathing) making the fitness target seem unattainable for some.
The calorie split option was removed. We found that a large majority of users actually didn't understand this concept and most opted into "mostly eat less and exercise a little bit more (75/25 split)". For existing users, this was not automatically changed...it was kept them at what you originally selected. For new users or when you edit your goals, you'll be reverted to the new 75/25 split.
Please let me know any more specific feedback or questions and I'll do my best to get answers for you. Thank you for being such a positive, helpful and supportive member here!!!! FOR REAL as my 4 year old would say
Hello! I"m the WebMD moderator for the Diet and Diabetes Communities.
Next week, our WebMD staff endocrinologist, Dr. Brunilda Nazario , is going to do a presentation at the WebMD Atlanta office teaching staffers who may not know much about diabetes a little about it. Here are some of the topics:
Facts on Prediabetes Facts on Type 2 Diabetes Information on how insulin & other medications work Weight loss surgery and Diabetes
WebMD staffers have been encouraged to submit questions for Dr. Bruni to answer. We thought it might be a great idea to find out what others might want to know?
After the presentation, we'll come back to the board and let you know which questions were chosen.
