BMI Index - BMI Index Analysis - Now that you have reached Maintenance, the first thing to assess is your BMI. Make sure that you fall within a healthy range. By WHO standards, a healthy BMI range is 18.5 - 24.99.
Expenditure - Calculate Daily Calories Burned - After you have determined that you are within a healthy weight range, calculate your Calories Burned at your new healthy weight. The Daily Caloric Expenditure will tell you a rough estimate of how many calories you burn. Be sure to set your activity level accordingly though.
