MyNetDiary provides recommendations for nutrient goals as a courtesy. The recommendations should not be taken as medical advice. It is okay if you disagree with the default goals and recommendations. Simply customize your nutrient goals as you see fit. Also, you can "unselect" a nutrient to track, it will be removed from Day Highlights. This is a feature of Premium membership.
