How to set my calorie goals higher?
I've set my macros for 70% fat, 20% protein, and 10% carbs--but then my calories are automatically set to 725, which is way too low. I can't figure a way to set my calories to 1100, which is what I'd prefer. How can I change that on my Diary?
@Strawberry_Girl88 You can change your targets on the settings tab!
You can learn how to edit your macronutrient targets on the website version of Cronometer here: https://cronometer.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018362851-Edit-Macronutrient-Targets

There are a couple of different choices for setting macronutrient targets:
Use Fixed values if you would like to input custom nutrient gram values directly in the fields.
Use Macro Ratios, to dynamically calculate your macronutrient targets to achieve the ratio of macros based on your calorie budget.
Use Keto Calculator if you are following a Ketogenic diet. Cronometer will dynamically calculate a maximum protein target based on your lean body mass, a maximum carbohydrate target and set the remainder of your calorie allowance to fats.
Cronometer is to be seen as a tool to track consumption and all targets we have set by default are not for everyone. If you have different needs you are welcome to make the changes based on your healthcare professional's recommendation or personal preference.

Thanks, Hillary. I figured it out. I needed to use Fixed Values. I'm all set now. Thank you!
