The National Institutes of Health Body Weight Planner (BWP) is a free online tool designed to help adults set personal physical activity and calorie targets to achieve and maintain weight goals. The BWP is a unique goal-setting resource for weight management because it accounts for the change in metabolism as people alter their diet and physical activities and has been validated using data from multiple controlled studies in adults. It is designed to work in tandem with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s SuperTracker, an online dashboard that creates meal plans based on a person’s weight management goal.
