Weight Loss/Gain Tracking


Over 65 percent of American adults are overweight or obese, many don’t know where to start to lose weight. Experts say all it takes is eating healthy and exercise. If most of the overweight or obese population started to eat right, they would be able to lose a substantial amount of weight.

Problem

The problem is that most of the time overweight and obese people don’t know where to start. With the Weight Loss/Gain Tracking excel sheet the user will be able to keep make goals and keep track on how he or she is doing on his or her goal. The Weight Loss/Gain Tracking excel sheet is a great place for someone to start towards losing or gaining the weight that is desired.

Highlights

The Weight Loss/Gain excel sheet will give the current Body Mass Index (BMI) of the user.  The BMI is a formula which uses the height and the weight of the user to determine if he or she is underweight, normal, overweight or obese. With the BMI a user can judge how much weight he or she needs to lose or gain to be in the normal range or healthy range. A word of caution from a dietitian, BMI does not take in account of the muscle to fat ratio. For most people this won’t be a problem if they are too thin or obese for their height.


Weight Loss/Gain excel sheet keeps track on an easy-to-read graph, which shows the user’s current weight and the goal he or she has set.  The user can go in and change the goal if he or she desires. As the user enters his or her current weight as time moves forward, one can see the change of the BMI. After the user begins the excel sheet will give the target number of daily calories to consume to reach the desired weight.
