Formulas for weight loss

The Aussielent meal plan calculator uses a practical and effective approach to weight change.

We use your personal data and weight goals to estimate your body’s basal metabolic calories.  Then we apply an activity factor and subtract 500 calories to present your recommended weight loss meal plan.

We find 500 calories is a practical approach that balances diet results with diet sustainability.

Good snacking

Aussielent meal plans incorporate snacks during the day to supplement the main meals of the day.  We need to make smart choices for our snacks and this article provides some strategies you can employ.

(To give the potato a fighting chance, we’ll be including its vitamin-filled cousin, the sweet potato.)
