We’re excited to announce a new goal-setting resource available to SuperTracker users – the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Body Weight Planner! The Body Weight Planner can help you identify how many calories you need to eat and how much exercise you need to achieve a goal weight within a specific time period. Use your results to create a personalized meal plan and to set goals in SuperTracker. Step-by-step instructions are provided below and in this video.
1. Use the Body Weight Planner to find out how many calories you need to eat each day to reach and maintain your goal weight.
2. Enter your Body Weight Planner results in SuperTracker.
a. New users: Create a SuperTracker profile and enter your Body Weight Planner calorie results into the “personal calorie goal” field which appears after you enter your height and weight.
b. Current users: Enter results into the “personal calorie goal” field on the My Top 5 Goals page under the Calories tab.
3. View the My Plan section of SuperTracker to get your daily food group targets, including what and how much to eat of each food group in order to get the nutrition your body needs while staying within your calorie allowance.
4. Reach and maintain your goal weight by tracking your dietary intake and physical activity from your desktop, phone, or tablet!
