    I've been using Cronometer daily for 6 years(?) now and I don't believe I've had any data missing.

    It gives targets of up to 2lb per week to lose or gain, I wanted to add a custom goal of weight loss of 4 or 5lb a week,,
    Ive also noticed that some figures are wrong for black tea, having carbs, and has trans fats for when I enter plain omelette.. I am sure there are no trans fats in eggs.

    Hi Fats1964,

    2 lbs per week is the highest rate of weight loss you can choose from the list of options in Cronometer. This requires a calorie deficit of about 1000 kcal per day.

    You can find any data you have entered into your diary by navigating to that date in the diary page. Click on the green date bar to expand the calendar. Click on a date to open in the diary, or use the arrows to jump to another month or the double arrows to jump a year. You can also access all of your data from the Profile tab. Click on the gear icon in the Account Information section. Choose Export Data. Select the date range, then Export Biometrics to download a .csv file with all the biometrics you have entered during that time.
