Balanced nutrition provides the nutrients you need to maintain optimal health, making your best possible body weight and shape a reality.

Body Mass Index (BMI)

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a way to look at your body weight relative to your height. It is a scientifically-based index that categorizes you as being underweight, normal, overweight or obese, and also lets you know about your risk for developing obesity-associated diseases.

  What the Results Mean

Based on your BMI calculation, you can determine your classification based on the chart below. Individuals with a BMI value of 25 and higher may be at increased risk for certain obesity-related conditions.

Using your BMI results as a starting point, you can create a personalized approach to healthier living through your Distributor’s trusted support and our science-based nutrition and weight-management products.

Below 20 = slender-lean

20 to 25 = ideal weight range

25-30 = overweight (25-27 could be healthy range if large-boned and heavily muscled)

30 and above = very overweight / high risk

40 and above = extremely overweight / high risk for health complications

 

Lean Protein Estimator (LPE)

The Lean Protein Estimator (LPE) provides an estimate of lean body mass in a person. Lean body mass determines the number of calories you burn at rest during a 24-hour period. The Lean Protein Estimator also calculates your Body Mass Index (BMI).

Calories

Calories Are

  • units of energy you body uses to fuel its functions and activities
  • created from proteins, fats and carbohydrates found in our foods and beverages
  • necessary for basic body functions like keeping the heart, brain and lungs functioning (also know as basal metabolism
  • essential to fuel activity – from the smallest hand gesture to a 5-mile run

The number of calories we need each day depends on how much we weigh, how much muscle mass we have and how active we are.

  • If you consume more calories than your body needs, those extra calories will be stored as fat.
  • If you consume less calories than your body needs, your previously stored calories (fat) will be used to supply additional energy.

A Pound = Approximately 3,500 Calories

To Lose Weight

  • By cutting down 500 calories per day, you will cut a total of 3,500 calories per week – resulting in the loss of 1 pound of body fat. But never consume fewer than 1,200 calories per day.* (Refer to Weight Management section for Program.)
  • If you want to lose more than 1 pound a week, you will need to either reduce your calorie intake further,* or increase the amount of calories you burn with exercise.

To Maintain Weight

  • Balance calories from food and beverages with calories expended.**

If you are a woman:

  • You will need about 12 calories for every pound of body weight (A 150-lb. woman needs about 1,800 calories a day.)

If you are a man:

  • You will need about 14 calories for every pound of body weight. (A 200-pound man needs about 2,800 calories a day.)

 

Daily Protein Needs

Getting enough protein helps your body meet the demands of daily living. And studies show, you probably need more if you are working to build muscle, if you're dieting and as you age.

When protein intake is out of whack, it undermines energy, exercise performance and overall health. New research has even found that a protein-rich diet helps to maximize fat loss while minimizing loss of lean body mass.

An easy way to estimate your daily protein needs is to divide your current weight in half. The number you get is the amount of protein (in grams) that you should be eating daily.
