    here's my results:

    Your Data
    Measure: US
    Age: ** years
    Gender: Male
    Height: 5' 7"
    Weight: 138 pounds
    Activity level:
    (hours/day) 5 hours - Sleep
    12 hours - Very Light / Sedentary
    2 hours - Light
    0 hours - Moderate
    0 hours - Heavy
    Body fat: Current 21 percent
    Goal 15 percent
    Calorie distribution: Fat 26 percent
    Protein 15 percent
    Carbohydrate 59 percent
    Weight goal: Maintain weight
    Elbow breadth: Less than 2 1/4 inches
    Waist circumference: 31 inches
    Hip circumference: 34 inches

    Healthy body weight range is: 133 to 163 pounds

    You are within the healthy body weight range

    This is a healthy weight for you based on your height, gender and pregnancy status.

    The weight range does not consider your level of fitness. If you are an athlete, your weight goal based on your percent body fat would be a better indicator of what you should weigh.

    Body Frame Size

    You have a small frame size for your height

    Your skeletal frame size is most easily measured where there is little overlying skin and muscle, such as at your wrist or elbow. The elbow breadth could be more accurately measured by placing a calipher (a pliers-like instrument used to measure thickness), on the prominent bones on either side of your elbow.

    * Persons with a small frame should weigh closer to the lighter end of their healthy body weight range.
    * Persons with a medium frame should weigh toward the middle of their healthy body weight range.
    * Persons with a large frame should weigh closer to the heavier end of their healthy body weight range.

    Body Mass Index

    Body Mass Index calculates how much body fat you have.

    * Lean BMI means you have a low amount of body fat. If you are an athlete, this can be desirable. If you are not an athlete, a lean BMI can indicate that your weight may be too low which may lower your immunity. If your BMI and body weight are low, you should consider gaining weight by eating more food and exercising to increase your amount of muscle.
    * Healthy BMI means you have a healthy amount of body fat for your age.
    * Overfat means your amount of body fat is too high which puts you at risk for heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, gall bladder disease and some cancers. You should consider losing weight by eating less food and exercising to decrease your amount of body fat.
    * If you are a trained athlete, your weight based on your measured percent body fat would be a better indicator of what you should weigh. If you entered a current percent body fat that is lean, you will not get a BMI calculation.

    Percent Body Fat

    Going from: 21% body fat to 15% body fat

    Weight goal: 0 pounds

    If you have a lower body fat and higher body weight, standard weight calculations won't predict an appropriate weight goal. A more accurate weight goal can be calculated from your current body fat measurement.

    Waist to Hip Ratio

    Ratio: 0.91 - Pear shape: lower health risk

    Apple or pear shape

    This tells you where most of your body fat is located.

    * Apple shape (a ratio of .95 or greater) means your body fat is located above your waist which indicates a higher health risk for diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and some cancers.
    * Pear shape (a ratio of less than .95) means your body fat is located below your waist which indicates a lower health risk, but fat located in the lower half of the body may be harder to lose during weight loss.

    Nutritional Facts Goals for You

    Your Nutrition Facts
    Calorie Daily Value 2,340 Calories from Fat 610
    Total Fat 68 g
    Saturated Fat 22 g
    Cholesterol 300 mg
    Sodium 2,400 mg
    Potassium 3,500 mg
    Total Carbohydrate 345 g
    Dietary Fiber 25 g
    Sugars 58 g
    Protein 88 g
    Vitamin A 5,000 IU Vitamin C 60 mg
    Calcium 1,000 mg Iron 18 mg
    Vitamin D 400 IU Vitamin E 30 IU
    Thiamin 1.5 mg Riboflavin 1.7 mg
    Niacin 20 mg Vitamin B-6 2.0 mg
    Folate 400 mcg Vitamin B-12 6 mcg
    Biotin 300 mcg Pantothenic Acid 10 mg
    Phosphorus 1,000 mg Iodine 150 mcg
    Magnesium 400 mg Zinc 15 mg
    Copper 2 mg

    The calories, fat, saturated fat, carbohydrate and protein are customized to your calorie distribution and are adjusted according to your weight goal (gain or lose) as you indicated on page 2. Note, the lowest calorie recommendation is 1,200 calories per day.

    Food labels contain the amount of calories and nutrients per serving of food. To achieve your weight goal, subtract the calories and grams of fat on the labels of food you eat from the calories and grams of fat in Your Nutrition Facts as a maximum recommended daily amount. For foods not labeled, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, the calories and grams of fat are low as long as you don’t add fat or deep fry these nutritious foods.

    The remaining nutrients are the Daily Values on US food labels. With the exception of pregnant women who need 30 mg of iron per day. This level can best be reached with an iron supplement. Talk to your doctor about this.

    Healthy Exercise Suggestions

    Weight Loss Facts:

    Low Fat Foods DON'T WORK.

    You cannot lose weight using Low Fat Diets. Low fat foods have been popular for more than 15 years, but yet our society is getting more overweight as each year passes. This fact alone should tell you that eating a purely low fat menu is not the answer to losing weight.

    Low Calorie Diets DON'T WORK.

    You won't lose weight using a Low Calorie Dieting Plan either. In fact, eating low calories is the worst thing that you can do to your body, since that will only slow down your body's fat burning engine and ruin all chances of losing weight (low calorie diets may allow a few pounds of weight loss for the first few days, but then after that all weight loss comes to a halt --- known as a dieting plateau). You can never get slim by starving yourself.

    Low Carb Plans DON'T WORK.

    You'll probably find it extremely difficult to get slim using a Low Carb Dieting Plan. Low carb diets have recently become popular over the last couple years, but the problem with low carb menus is that they are too strict and TOO HARD TO FOLLOW for average people. Low carb menus tend to rob your body of too much energy (carbohydrates) and make it nearly impossible to remain on the program for very long. This is why so many dieters find it difficult to follow a strict low carbohydrate menu.

    What about Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig Dieting Plans?

    Weight loss programs such as Weight Watchers (and Jenny Craig) usually involve slower dieting progress over a longer period of time, since such programs generally promise only 2-3 pounds of weight loss per week. Also, programs such as Jenny Craig usually involve buying special meals and/or dietary supplements during the initial phases of the program. While some people may like these types of dietary programs, we prefer a dieting plan which focuses on faster weight loss, such as the Accelerated Fat Burning Program shown below...
