One measurement I use to design meal plans for clients is your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Your BMR measures how much energy your body requires to run efficiently.
Your BMR is VERY different than your BMI (Body Mass Index). Your BMI is a very general equation, which I do not use or find as an accurate measurement. Your BMR along with your body composition are wonderful tools to learn more about your body’s needs. The ideal situation to test your Resting and Basal Metabolic Rates is with a qualified practitioner after 8 hours of restful sleep and adjustment to your activity level. You can Google in your area to look up this type of testing. For a guideline to begin meal planning, check out this website and you will get a daily caloric amount BEFORE activity. Depending on how much activity you do, you can adjust this amount.

After discovering your BMR, I ask a few other questions to learn more about your body type and constitution. We then design meal plans to give your body the proper amount of awesome carbohydrates, healthy fats, and lean proteins.
If you want to learn more about this and you have the passion to help others meal plan, I will be holding a group Teleseminar on March 12th, 14th & 16th.
