An estimated way to gain / lose weight

A weight loss/gain calculator will be added to this site soon.

Weight loss of more than 2kg per week is not recommended.


To achieve a more balanced and healthy approach to weight loss, consider increasing physical activity by at least 30 minutes each day and eat a wholesome healthy diet. This will ensure your metabolism increases by increasing lean muscle tissues (from increased exercise) and you will continue to burn fat even after you have finished exercising.

If you have any questions regarding your weight and calorie intake, you should see a registered dietitian who can advise you on your specific calorie requirements and weight loss goals.
