To achieve anything in life, you need a goal to strive for and
when you embark on The Biggest Loser Meal Replacement Program we
recommend you choose a goal weight to focus on.
While it's good if your goal is within the recognised healthy
weight range, which equates to a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 18.5-24.9
(as shown on the chart below), there's no pressure to get into this
zone if it doesn't feel right for you. If you opt for a goal that's
realistic and motivating, you'll find it much easier to achieve
It also helps to break your Biggest Loser journey into mini goals
of 5kg or 10kg. Alternatively, you could set goals of 5% or 10% of
your body weight.
In addition to recording a starting weight, we recommend you
weigh yourself once a week and record your result in a food diary.
Your weight can fluctuate daily, even hourly, so for the most
consistent results, weigh yourself:
- on the same day each week
- at a similar time
- wearing similar clothes (or no clothes at all)
- on the same set of scales
Taking your measurements
The scales aren't the only measure of success. Your changing
body shape says a lot about your achievements, too. Taking your
measurements - especially your waist measurement - is a great way
to assess your progress.
Use a tape measure to take your measurements once a week or
fortnight. When taking your measurements, the most important thing
is that you take them consistently each time. As a general
rule,always measure around the widest part of your waist, hips,
arms and thighs.It doesn't matter if you do one thigh or both
thighs as long as you always measure consistently.
