Losing weight is not easy but feasible. It involves lifestyle change, exercise, and dietary modifications. RPM1000 helps to track and set weight targets. RPM1000 has collaborated with the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to integrate a validated metabolic weight prediction model The result of this collaboration in V4.0 is a more complete and biological-driven system for planning and monitoring weight management program. The chart shows a summary of the current weight plan with a shaded area as a guide towards the target weight.

BMI is gender-specific for children & teens but not for adults.

WAIST SIZE

The waist size provides an indicator of abdominal fat. Excess fat around your and upper body (also described as an 'apple' body shape) is associated with greater health risk than fat located more in hip and thigh area (described as a 'pear' body shape). Waist size is gender & ethnicity-specific.

WAIST TO HEIGHT RATIO

Keeping waist circumference to less than half the height is key to avoid an increased risk of obesity related diseases. This simple measurement is equally fair to tall and short people so it can be used across all countries and ethnic groups. Waist to height ratio is validated for children, adults & is gender-specific.

TYPE 2 DIABETES RISK

The risk of being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in the next 5 years is computed from a questionnaire developed by the Australian Government, Department of Health and Ageing. It is possible to decrease this risk by losing weight, having an active lifestyle, changing eating habits, and smoking cessation. Type 2 diabetes risk is gender, age & ethnicity specific.

HEART AGE

The heart age is calculated using a model from the Framingham study. The result is used to find out how old or young our heart is in comparison to our chronological age. The heart age calculation is gender & age-specific.
