Ideal Weight Calculator
Body mass index or BMI is the amount of fat a person has in relation to a person's gender, frame size and height. Since this varies from person to person results are calculated according to BMI.

Once BMI is determined IWC calculates the differece between current weight and ideal weight. From this number a protein range can be determined to gain or lose weight.

Protein Range And Weight Loss

Sustained weight loss can be triggered by consuming large amounts of protein combined with elevating metabolism daily for a period of time. Your body is like a combustion engine. When it is slow and sluggish it runs poorly. If you tune up the engine and give it better fuel it will run better.

Fat burning occurs when your weight loss engine gets revved up. One way to ge your weight loss engine going is to improve fuel consumption and boost metabolism.

A slow metabolism and poor eating habits can trigger weight gain. Your body doesn't use all the energy from the food it is receiveing and can't just discard it, so excess energy is converted to fat and stored.

To reverse weight gain you need to burn this stored fat. To lose weight give your body a purer source of energy and burn more of it. This does not mean starving yourself just the opposite.

Protein is a pure form of energy for the body. Increasing protein levels gives your body the nutrition it needs to burn stored fat as your energy source. When your body gets a higher level of protein than it needs it burns fat as it's energy source.
