Change minimum calorie requirements to support people who had weight loss surgery

I know the calorie minimum is 1000 for a reason. But my stomach is 20% of its original size so I don't always get 1000-1200 calories. I feel like there should be a setting where the minimum for a completed diary is a little lower for those who identify they are preparing for (like in the pre-op liquid diet) or are post-op from surgery.

    You don't have to complete your diary.

    You don't have to complete your diary...completing your diary doesn't really do anything special. The minimum is for both health, and also to discourage people with EDs from looking at their super low calories and getting off on it.

    Just do a quick add to get to 1,000... that's what I do
