Calories remaining

I asked this on Reddit but I wanted to be sure. On the first graph of your diary, it has consumed, burned and remaining. I set myself up for calorie cycling with high, low and moderate days. However, the values on the first graph (circles) is always at my base deficit. Example. My base is 1730 calories, but today is a high day for me with 900 calories allowed. However, once I start logging, the circle with calories remaining starts counting down from 1730. So by the time I finished eating today, I hit my 1900 calories, but it's saying I'm 130 calories over. This makes zero sense to me lol. I can swipe right to the bar graphs and they are correct, bit they count up so you're doing a bit of math in your head. I can also see some people who are already stressed about nutrition feeling like they've already failed because they hit their calorie total, but the app is telling them they're over. Does anyone else agree?

I am loving it Chrono so far, but the app I'm using handled this one thing so much better. However, I don't want to be the guy who says, "this app did it this way" lol
