BMI: A Better Way to Set Weight Loss Goals Body Mass Index (BMI) is a way to measure your health risk. The higher your BMI, the higher your risk of developing heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, estrogen imbalance, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes. UltraMeal from Metagenics is designed to help you achieve a healthy BMI and optimal body composition. Unlike many programs, UltraMeal will help you preserve muscle while taking off fat.

Ask your healthcare practitioner if the UltraMeal Body Composition Program is right for you!

To find your BMI:

Find your height along the left side of the chart. Move across the row to the right until you find your weight. At the top of this column is your BMI. If your BMI is 25 or higher, ask your healthcare practitioner about the connection between your BMI and possible health risks.
