At Cronometer, our aim is to assist our users to achieve their weight and nutritional goals regardless of a specific diet, or in conjunction with a specific diet. Cronometer is a tool to track consumption, and all targets we have set by default are not for everyone. If you have different needs, we encourage you to make the changes based on personal preference or your healthcare professional's recommendation.
