Different Calorie goals on Specific Days

I've been using the paid program for a couple months and really love tracking my overall intakes. It's nice to see where I need to adjust for more protein, different vitamins, etc. What I would really like is to be able to set different calorie goals for different days. I do a 4:3 diet where 3 days of the week I have fasting 5-600 calorie days and usually 1 day on the weekend I eat absolutely whatever I want and it may wind up over 2000 calories. It is so hard to track where I'm at on the fasting days b/c all it can tell me is that I can still have 700 more calories that day. (I have it set on a generic 1200 cal/day) Everything else about this tracker I love. (I tested lots of different ones when I started and found this to be the best to fit my needs) I even refer people starting diets to use your program for how nice it is. If you could add this one feature, the program would be perfect to me.

  • Thanks for the feedback -- this is something already on our backlog and we will be adding it in the future.

    Even for those of us who fast intermittently (or not at all), some of us need to take in more protein on the strength-training workout days, or more carbs on other days. Customizable calorie/macro days could prove to be a powerful addition to Cronometer.

  • I'm glad to hear it's on the list! This is a feature I'm looking for as well as my intake targets vary whether or not I'm strength training that day.

  • Hi, any update on this? I am Zig Zagging my calories at the moment but when I change the calories for each day they change all the previous days? Also can you preset different calorie goals?
    Cheers :)

  • Hello,
    This is a large feature overhaul that our developers will be working on in the future. Thanks for your patience while we ensure that we are delivering and rigorously testing the most complete and useful feature possible.
    Currently you can change your macro and micronutrient targets on the profile tab. Learn more about settings your targets here:
