2. POLAR WEIGHT MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

The Polar Weight Management Product is for healthy adults who want to successfully manage their weight. The Weight Management Program is based on exercise and diet, giving you guidance on how much energy to expend through exercise and how many calories to eat in order to achieve your target body weight.

The personalized Program helps you to plan gradual weight loss by recommending a target weight and Program duration, taking into account your current weight, height, gender, and age. In addition to the target weight and duration, the Program asks you to determine your daily activity level and the amount of exercise you want to aim for. Based on the chosen values, you receive targets for daily nutrition intake and weekly energy expenditure in calories, for example the number of calories you should obtain from food and drink and the number of calories you should burn while exercising. By following these recommendations, you will achieve your target weight by the end of the Program. For further information, see the section

Creating a Weight Management Program, page 78.

After you create your Program, you should start monitoring your progress in the electronic Diary on a daily and/or weekly basis. In the Diary, you can update your current weight and check it against the recommended target weight.

If you have the WM22/WM21 Weight Management Product, see the section Monitoring and Updating Your Progress with WM22/WM21, page 82 for further information.

In addition to your weight, the WM42/WM41 Weight Management Product also allows you to monitor your nutrition intake calories and exercise calories on a daily basis. It also enables you to update your Weight Management Program on a weekly basis. This means that you are able to keep your progress up to date by just entering your current weight on a weekly basis. Depending on the results obtained, you may receive new nutrition intake and weekly exercise targets for the following week. For further information, see the section Monitoring and Updating Your Progress with WM42/WM41, page 84.
