Setting Weight loss goals
General Guidelines:-
Lady Heart Assuming you have perused the charts and used the calculators on this site its reasonably obvious what your "ideal body weight" should be. The charts do vary quite considerably but a general target range should be indicated. Each and every one of us is different and each individual is dependent on health, body fat content, body fat distribution, musculature, skeletal structure, age, activity, metabolism, and a wide variety of other contributing factors.

If you are going to use the tables as a guideline, start conservatively by choosing a conservative weight. Once you reach your target weight adjust the target if you still feel you need to trim off additional weight. Effective Weight loss is a slow and steady and consistent project. Do not rush or over diet! A general guideline is not more than 2lbs or 1Kg per week.

    The 6 Point Plan

  • Consult your physician/dietitian.
  • Agree on a calorie reduced balanced diet.
  • Eat fruit, whole grain, lean meat and low fat products.
  • Drink liquids - particularly water!
  • Exercise. Walking is an excellent start!
  • Make a commitment and stick to it!

Hey, diddle, diddle
I'm watching my middle,
I'm hoping to to slim it quite soon;
But eating's such fun
It may not get done
Till my dish runs away with my spoon!

"It's important to watch what you eat. Otherwise, how are you going to get it into your mouth?" - MATT DIAMOND
