Option to change what red, orange and green mean.
I'm new to Yazio and signed up with the intention of maintaining a healthy weight. I would like the option of changing what triggers red, orange etc as appropriate, so say orange would be a range between 100 calories above or below what I need, red higher than that and green lower. I'm concerned the settings may (inadvertently) promote eating disorders, especially as it keeps chasing me and we're all aiming for green!

I find orange okay how it is, as it turns orange when you have hit the base calories and you remaining calories are from activities.
But as I’m trying to gain weight I’d love to have the option to swap red/green.

Make the green darker instead, then it indicates it's over the recomended amount of calories. It you try to gain weight, a red sign gives wrong signals. If you try to loose weight it could trigger a bad relationship with food, that food only is calories and should be avoided. It doesn't happen to everyone but it could affect subconsciously.
I fake it a litte to help myself stay green but only for little amounts above the level to stay honest. What i do is i add a self created dummy activity which pretends to burn exactly the calories i was over by that day.

Is it possible to make such a function (if you ate above your norm, up to 100 kcal, then the color is orange, and if it is already red higher: the norm is 1500🟢, 1543🟠 1601🔴) are there such settings? I can eat a little more and everything is on the calendar 🔴🔴🔴🔴 it is frustrating and it looks like the day is ruined. although I ate only 50 kcal more. And I don't want to fake "tweak" the counter
