New Cronometer Update Isn't Great If You're Recovering from an Eating Disorder
As the title suggests, I'm recovering from a restrictive eating disorder. This means I need to eat A LOT of food for up to two years so that my body can get all of the nutrients it needs and more so it can repair accumulated cellular damage, bone density loss, hair loss, etc. To do this, I needed to start tracking calories. If I don't track, I end up habitually eating 1,000 or less calories a day. Usually less, in the neighborhood of 200-800 calories.
Cronometer was great for this, at least it was until the most recent update. I could set custom values for my macros, micros, and caloric intake, and basically prevent the app from yelling and screaming about, "OH NOES!?!?! ur gonna get fat." All other apps I tried didn't allow this sort of freedom.
The most recent update, though? It has a big ol' purple scale that tells me if I have a deficit, which is fine, I'm ok with that because it encourages me to eat more.
But if I eat "too much"? Not only does it make sure that I know about it, if I hover over the purple scale with my mouse it puts a warning up in big, bold, red letters and lets me know that I'm going to get fat.
Now I don't know where to go, because this is going to shoot my recovery in the foot. There doesn't seem to be a way to disable it. And yeah, I know that the old version told you about the surplus too, but at least I could take the upper limit off of my calorie range, and ignore the bar at the top. Now the app flat out ignores that I don't have a maximum limit set for my caloric intake for the day. It sucks, and it makes me want to go back to not eating.
