What is a BMI?

|Normal||18.5 - 24.9|
|Overweight||25 - 29.9|
|Obese I||30 - 34.9|
|Obese II||35 - 39.9|
|Morbidly Obese III||≥40|
Please note that these are only mathematical estimates.
The actual calories used by your body may be much higher or much lower depending on many factors, such as lifestyle, medical history and conditions, and family history. In particular, very active people, older people, or overweight people may use more or less calories than predicted.

I truly believe this program will work for my entire life. It has changed the way I eat and made me addicted to exercising!
I went from a size 22 to a size 6! I now love to go shopping and even do some modeling on the side.
