Product Specification
Grounding Instructions (for a 120V AC system )
120mm
This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce
the risk of electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified
electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided with the product – if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
5
Assembly / Owner’s Manual
If you connect the machine to an outlet with GFI (ground fault interrupt) or AFI (arc fault interrupt), machine operation can cause the circuit to trip.
This machine is for use on a nominal 120-V circuit, and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated below. A temporary
adapter that looks like the adapter illustrated may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown if a properly
grounded outlet is not available.
Safety Warning Labels and Serial Number
The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician. The tab for the grounding
screw must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in
place by a metal screw.

Earthing Instructions (for a 220-240V AC system )
This product must be electrically earthed. If a malfunction occurs, correct earthing decreases the risk of electric shock. The power cord is equipped
with an equipment-earthing conductor, and must be connected to an outlet that is properly installed and earthed.
he electrical wiring must comply with all applicable local and provincial standards and requirements. Incorrect
T
connection of the equipment-earthing conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a licensed electrician if
you are not sure that the machine is correctly earthed. Do not change the plug on the machine – if it does not fit the
outlet, have a correct outlet installed by a licensed electrician.
If you connect the machine to an outlet with RCBO (Residual-Current circuit Breaker with Overload protection), machine operation can cause the
circuit to trip. A Surge Protector Device is recommended to protect the machine.
!
If a Surge Protector Device (SPD) is used with this machine, be sure that it matches the power rating of this equipment (220-240V
AC). Do not connect other appliances or devices to the surge protector in combination with this machine.
Make sure that the product is connected to an outlet having the same configuration as the plug. Use the appropriate adapter
supplied with this product.
Emergency Stop Procedure
The Treadmill machine is equipped with a Safety Key that can prevent serious injury, as well as prevent children from playing with and/or being
injured on the machine. If the Safety Key is not correctly inserted into the Safety Key Port, the belt will not operate.
!
Always attach the Safety Key Clip to your clothing during your workout.
When you use the machine, only remove the Safety Key in an emergency. When the key is removed while the machine is in
operation, it will stop quickly, which could cause the loss of balance and possible injury.

Be sure that the workout space you are utilizing has adequate height clearance, taking into consideration the height of the user and
the maximum incline of the deck.
2. Make sure there is no object on or around the treadmill to spill or cause blockage from the fully unfolded position.
3. Slightly push the walking deck forward toward the console. With your left foot lightly push the top part of the hydraulic lift forward until the locking
tube releases and you can pull the walking deck away from the console. Hold up the rear of the walking deck, and move to the side of the machine.
Keep clear of the movement path of the walking deck.

Assembly / Owner’s Manual
Leveling the Machine
The machine needs to be leveled if your workout area is uneven. To adjust:
1. Place the machine in your workout area.
2. Adjust the levelers until they all contact the floor.
Do not adjust the levelers to such a height that they detach or unscrew from the machine. Injury to you or damage to the machine
can occur.
3. Adjust until the machine is level.
Make sure the machine is level and stable before you exercise.
Treadmill Belt
Your treadmill comes equipped with a durable, high quality walking belt designed to provide many hours of reliable service. The walking belt on a
treadmill that has not been operated for a length of time, either in factory packaging or after assembly, can exhibit a “thumping” noise when started.
This is due to the belt taking on the curve of the front and rear rollers. This is a common occurrence and does not indicate a problem with your machine. After the treadmill has been used for a short period of time the thumping noise will discontinue. The amount of time will vary depending on the
temperature and humidity of the environment where the treadmill is placed.

USB Charging
If a USB Device is attached to the USB Port, the Port will attempt to charge the Device. The power supplied from the USB Port may not be enough to
operate the Device and charge it at the same time.
Remote Heart Rate Monitor
Monitoring your Heart Rate is one of the best procedures to control the intensity of your exercise. The Console reads the telemetry HR signals from
the Heart Rate Chest Strap Transmitter that operates in the 4.5kHz - 5.5kHz range.
Note: The heart rate chest strap must be an uncoded heart rate strap from Polar Electro or an uncoded POLAR® compatible model.
(Coded POLAR® heart rate straps such as POLAR® OwnCode® chest straps will not work with this equipment.).
If you have a pacemaker or other implanted electronic device, consult your doctor before using a wireless chest strap or other
telemetric heart rate monitor.
Chest Strap
Using the provided heart rate transmitter chest strap lets you monitor your heart rate at any time during your
workout.
Consult a physician before you start an exercise program. Stop exercising if you feel pain or
tightness in your chest, become short of breath, or feel faint. Contact your doctor before you use
the machine again. The heart rate displayed is an approximation and should be used for reference
only.
To put on your chest strap:
1.Secure the strap around your chest just below the chest muscles.
2.Lift the transmitter off your chest and moisten the two Grooved Electrode Areas on the back.
3.Check that the wet electrode areas are firmly against your skin.
The transmitter will send your heart rate to the machine’s receiver and display your estimated Beats Per Minute (BPM).
Always remove the transmitter before you clean the chest strap. Clean the chest strap regularly with mild soap and water, and thoroughly dry it. Residual sweat and moisture may keep the transmitter active and drain the battery in the transmitter. Dry and wipe clean the transmitter after each use.
Note: D
o not use abrasives or chemicals such as steel wool or alcohol when you clean the chest strap, as they can damage the electrodes
permanently.
30
Assembly / Owner’s Manual
If the Console does not display a heart rate value, the transmitter may be at fault. Check that the textured contact areas on the chest strap are
making contact with your skin. You may need to lightly wet the contact areas. Check that the curve of the transmitter is oriented upward. If no signal
appears or you need further assistance, contact Customer Service (if purchased in US/Canada) or your local distributor (if purchased outside US/
Canada).
Before discarding a chest strap, remove the battery. Dispose of in accordance with local regulations and/or at approved recycling
centers.
Contact Heart Rate Sensors
Contact Heart Rate (CHR) sensors send your heart rate signals to the Console. The CHR sensors are the stainless steel parts of the Handlebars.
To use, put your hands comfortably around the sensors. Be sure that your hands touch both the top and the bottom of the sensors. Hold firm, but
not too tight or loose. Both hands must make contact with the sensors for the Console to detect a pulse. After the Console detects four stable pulse
signals, your initial pulse rate will be shown.
Once the Console has your initial heart rate, do not move or shift your hands for 10 to 15 seconds. The Console will now validate the heart rate.
Many factors influence the ability of the sensors to detect your heart rate signal:
• Movement of the upper body muscles (including arms) produces an electrical signal (muscle artifact) that can interfere with pulse detection. Slight
hand movement while in contact with the sensors can also produce interference.
• Calluses and hand lotion may act as an insulating layer to reduce the signal strength.
• Some Electrocardiogram (EKG) signals generated by individuals are not strong enough to be detected by the sensors.
• The proximity of other electronic machines can generate interference.
If your heart rate signal ever seems erratic after validation, wipe off your hands and the sensors and try again.
The heart rate displayed is an approximation and should be used for reference only.
Heart Rate Calculations
Your maximum heart rate usually decreases from 220 Beats Per Minute (BPM) in childhood to approximately 160 BPM by age 60. This fall in heart
rate is usually linear, decreasing by approximately one BPM for each year. There is no indication that training influences the decrease in maximum
heart rate. Individuals of the same age could have different maximum heart rates. It is more accurate to find this value by getting a stress test than by
using an age related formula.
Your at rest heart rate is influenced by endurance training. The typical adult has an at rest heart rate of approximately 72 BPM, where as highly
trained runners may have readings of 40 BPM or lower.
The Heart Rate table is an estimate of what Heart Rate Zone (HRZ) is effective to burn fat and improve your cardiovascular system. Physical conditions vary, therefore your individual HRZ could be several beats higher or lower than what is shown.
The most efficient procedure to burn fat during exercise is to start at a slow pace and gradually increase your intensity until your heart rate reaches
between 60 – 85% of your maximum heart rate. Continue at that pace, keeping your heart rate in that target zone for over 20 minutes. The longer
you maintain your target heart rate, the more fat your body will burn.

Fitness Basics
Frequency
To maintain good health, lose weight and improve your cardiovascular endurance, try and use the Bowflex™ fitness machine a minimum of 3 times
per week, 30 minutes each day.
If you are new to exercise (or returning to a regular exercise program), and you are unable to comfortably complete 30 minutes of continuous exercise at one time, just do 5 – 10 minutes, and gradually increase your workout time until you can reach 30 minutes total.
If your schedule is busy, and you are unable to fit 30 minutes of continuous exercise into your day, try accumulating 30 minutes by doing multiple
shorter workouts on the same day. For example, 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening.
For best results, combine your Bowflex™ fitness machine workouts with a strength training program using a Bowflex™ home gym or Bowflex™
SelectTech™ dumbbells, and follow the Bowflex™ Body Weight Loss Guide that is included in this manual.
Consistency
Busy work schedules, family obligations and daily chores can make it difficult to fit regular exercise into your life. Try these tips to increase your
chances of success:
Schedule your workouts the same way you schedule meetings or appointments. Select specific days and times each week, and try not to change
your workout times.
Make a commitment to a family member, friend or spouse, and encourage each other to stay on track each week. Leave messages with friendly
reminders to be consistent, and keep each other accountable.
Make your workouts more interesting by alternating between steady state (single-speed) workouts and interval training (varied speed) workouts. The
Bowflex™ fitness machine is even more fun when you add this kind of variety.
Apparel
It is important to wear appropriate, safe and comfortable footwear and clothing when using the Bowflex™ fitness machine, including:
• Rubber-soled athletic walking or running shoes.
• Exercise clothing that allows you to move freely, and keep comfortably cool.
• Athletic support that provides stability and comfort.
Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. This machine contains moving parts. Do not put fingers, feet, or other objects into moving
parts of the exercise equipment.
Always wear rubber soled athletic shoes when you use this machine. Do not use the machine with bare feet or only wearing socks.

of breath, or feel faint. Contact your doctor before you use the machine again. Use the values calculated or measured by the
machine’s computer for reference purposes only.
Steady State and Interval Training are 2 types of workouts you can do on your Bowflex™ fitness machine:
Steady State workouts
A Steady State workout involves slowly increasing your workout speed to a challenging, but comfortable speed you can hold for most of your workout. For example, holding a 3.0 MPH walking pace for the entire workout, except during the warm-up and cool-down. Steady State workouts help
you build exercise confidence, stamina and endurance, and are essential to a well-rounded cardiovascular training program.
Interval Training workouts
An Interval Training workout involves adjusting your speed faster and slower for specific lengths of time to raise and lower your breathing rate, heart
rate and calorie burn. Here is a sample Interval Training workout:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
7 minutes walking at a slow, easy, comfortable speed.
1 minute walking at a more challenging speed that is approximately 50% faster.
7 minutes walking at a slow, easy, comfortable speed.
1 minute walking at a more challenging speed that is approximately 2x faster.
7 minutes walking at a slow, easy, comfortable speed.
1 minute walking at a more challenging speed that is approximately 50% faster.
6 minutes walking at a slow, easy, comfortable speed.
Interval Training workouts provide variety, maximize calorie burn and improve fitness.
The Bowflex™ fitness machine is designed to cushion your joints and muscles, and both Steady State and Interval Training workouts should feel
more comfortable than walking or running outside on a hard surface.

Operations
Getting Started
Consult a physician before you start an exercise program. Stop exercising if you feel pain or tightness in your chest, become short
of breath, or feel faint. Contact your doctor before you use the machine again. Use the values calculated or measured by the
machine’s computer for reference purposes only.
Place the machine on a clean, hard, level surface, free from unwanted material or other objects that may hamper your ability to
move freely with a sufficient clear workout area. A rubber mat below the machine is recommended to prevent electrostatic discharge and protect your floor.
Be sure that the workout space you are utilizing has adequate height clearance, taking into consideration the height of the user
and the maximum incline of the deck.
1.With the fitness machine in your workout area, inspect the walking belt to make sure it is centered and aligned. If necessary, refer to the
“Aligning the Walking Belt” Procedure in the Maintenance section of this manual.
Note: This machine is for home use only.
2.Examine below the walking belt for any objects. Be sure it is clear below the machine.
3.Connect the Power Cord to a correctly grounded/earthed AC wall outlet.
Do not step on the power cord and plug.
Note: The machine is designed to plug directly into a properly wired and grounded/earthed outlet.
4.If you use the Remote Heart Rate Monitor, follow the Chest Strap directions.
5.Switch on the power. Power is now supplied to the machine.
6.Straddle the walking belt and stand on the Side Foot Support Platforms. Put the Safety Key into the Safety Key Port and clip the Safety Key
cord to your clothing.
Care should be used when mounting or dismounting the machine.

Consult a physician before you start an exercise program. Stop exercising if you feel pain or tightness in your chest, become short
of breath, or feel faint. Contact your doctor before you use the machine again. Use the values calculated or measured by the
machine’s computer for reference purposes only. The heart rate displayed on the console is an approximation and should be used
for reference only.
The Target Heart Rate program uses the age of the user profile to set the Endurance heart rate zone values. Review the user profile to be sure the
age value is correct.
Note: Be sure to allow time for your heart rate to reach the desired heart rate zone when setting the goal. The Console will display the heart
rate value based on the current User settings.
Fitness Score Display
The Fitness Score is based on an estimate of the User’s VO2 Max and calorie burn over their last five workouts. VO2 Max estimates are calculated
using performance data (time, distance and average heart rate or an estimate of average heart rate if that data is unavailable). VO2 Max is the
maximal oxygen consumption of the aerobic physical fitness of the individual, and is a determinant of the endurance capacity of the User during
prolonged exercise. ( V = Volume, O2 = Oxygen, and Max = maximum rate ).
For every workout completed that is longer than 10 minutes or a mile (1.6 km) in distance, the Console will apply those workout values toward your
Fitness Score. This value is displayed on the Fitness Score Display area of the Console.
Note: U
sing a Heart Rate Chest Strap provides the most accurate information to calculate the Fitness Score. A Fitness Score is provided
when a minimum of 10 minutes or 1 mile (1.6 km) of distance is done during a workout. If no heart rate is supplied, an approximation
based on the User Profile will be used to calculate the score.
The Fitness Score may change only slightly for a User that performs the same length of workout at a similar intensity level. However, if that same
User were to increase intensity over the same length of a workout, their score would increase. Since the score is based on VO2 Max (estimated),
even a small score increase shows a significant shift in the User’s fitness level.
Note: A
User’s score may drop slightly if fatigue is present. With the proper combination of exercise and rest, a User’s Fitness Score will rise
in a similar way to their VO2 Max. This will also be reflected in their ability to perform longer or faster workouts. Fitness Scores should
only be compared to your previous scores and not to other User Profiles.

Adjusting the Belt Tension
If the walking belt starts to slip during use, it is necessary to adjust the tension. Your treadmill has tension bolts at the rear of the treadmill.
1.Remove the Safety Key and place it in a secure location.
When this machine is not in operation, remove the Safety Key and keep out of the reach of children.
2.Make sure that the power switch is turned Off, and the
power cord is disconnected.
3.Use a 6 mm hex wrench to turn the right and left belt adjustment bolts clockwise a 1/2 turn, first one bolt and then the
other bolt.
4.After you adjust each side the 1/2 turn, inspect the walking
belt. From the belt’s midpoint, a correctly tensioned belt
should only have an inch of give. To check, pull the belt upward at its midpoint and measure the distance to the deck. If
the distance is more than an inch, the belt is loose. Repeat
this step if necessary.
If you turn one side more than the other, the belt will move
away from that side of the treadmill and may need realignment.
NOTICE: T
oo much tension on the belt causes unnecessary
friction and wears the belt, motor and electronics.
6mm
Aligning the Walking Belt
The walking belt should be centered on your treadmill at all times. Running style and a non-level surface can cause the belt to move off center. Minor
adjustments to the 2 bolts at the rear of the treadmill are necessary when the belt is off center.
1.Push the START button to start the walking belt.
Be sure not to touch the walking belt or step on the power cord. Keep bystanders and children away from the product you are
servicing at all times.
2.Stand at the rear of the treadmill to see which direction the belt moves.
3.If the belt moves to the left, turn the left belt adjustment bolt 1/4 turn clockwise and the right belt adjustment bolt 1/4 turn counterclockwise.
If the belt moves to the right, turn the left adjustment bolt 1/4 turn counterclockwise and the right adjustment bolt 1/4 turn clockwise.
4.Monitor the path of the belt for approximately 2 minutes. Continue to adjust the bolts until the walking belt is centered.
5.Push PAUSE/STOP twice to stop the walking belt and end the Quick Start workout.

Assembly / Owner’s Manual
Lubricating the Walking Belt
Your treadmill is equipped with a low maintenance deck and belt system. The Walking Belt is pre-lubricated. Belt friction can affect the function and
life of the machine. Lubricate the belt every 3 months or every 25 hours of use, whichever comes first. Even if the treadmill is not in use, silicone will
dissipate and the belt will dry out. For the best results, lubricate the deck periodically with a silicone lubricant using the following instructions:
1.Turn off the power to the machine with the power switch.
2.Unplug the treadmill fully from the wall outlet, and remove the power cord from the machine.
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always unplug the power cord and wait 5 minutes before cleaning, maintaining or
repairing this machine. Place the power cord in a secure location.
Note: Make sure the treadmill is located on a surface that is easy to clean.
3.Apply a few drops of the lubricant on the deck below the belt. Carefully lift the belt and apply a few drops of the lubricant the entire width of the
belt. A very thin layer of silicone lubricant on the entire deck below the belt is desired.
NOTICE: A
lways use a 100% pure silicone lubricant. Do not use a degreaser like WD-40® as this could seriously impact performance. We can
recommend that you use the following:
• 100% pure silicone, available at most hardware and auto parts stores.
• Lube-N-Walk® Treadmill Lubrication Kit, available from your local specialty fitness dealer or Nautilus, Inc.
Silicone lubricant is not intended for human consumption. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a safe place.
4.Manually rotate the belt 1/2 of the length of the belt and apply lubricant again.
If you used spray lubricant, wait 5 minutes before turning on power to the machine to allow the aerosol to dissipate.
5.Connect the power cord back into the machine and then into the wall outlet.
6.Turn on the power to the machine with the power switch.
7.Stay to one side of your machine and start the belt at the slowest speed. Let the belt operate for approximately 15 seconds.
Be sure not to touch the walking belt or step on the power cord. Keep bystanders and children away from the product you are
servicing at all times.
8.Switch off your machine.
9.Take care to clean up any excess lubricant from the deck.
To decrease the possibility of slipping, be sure the deck area is free from grease or oil. Clean off any excess oil from the machine
surfaces.
As you use your fitness machine, the Console will show “LUBRICATE BELT” followed by “REVIEW USER MANUAL” at set times. This is only a
reminder and should be added to your inspection schedule. Only apply lubricant as necessary. Push any button to accept the reminder.

Bowflex™ Body Weight Loss Guide
Introduction and Overview
Welcome to the Bowflex™ Body Weight Loss Guide. This guide is designed to be used with your Bowflex™ equipment and will help you:
• Lose weight and get lean
• Improve your health and wellness
• Increase your energy and vitality
Consult a physician before you start an exercise program or a new health and diet plan. Stop exercising if you feel pain or tightness
in your chest, become short of breath, or feel faint. Contact your doctor before you use the machine again. Use the values calculated or measured by the machine’s computer for reference purposes only. The heart rate displayed on the console is an approximation and should be used for reference only.
By focusing on the main three elements of the Bowflex™ Body Weight Loss Guide- quality, balance, and consistency- you’ll be able to reach and
maintain your weight loss and fitness goals for the next six weeks and beyond.
• Quality – The emphasis of this plan is on eating more whole foods and getting the most nutrients from your calories as possible. Making the
majority of your diet from foods that have a single ingredient (for example fruits, vegetables, fish, lean protein, eggs, beans, nuts, and whole
grains) provides the vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein, and healthy fats your body needs.
• Balance – Each of the meals and snacks in this guide have a source of fiber or smart carbohydrate, protein, and healthy fat to keep your
energy levels consistent throughout the day to fuel your workouts. By having this balance you’ll feel fuller longer, which is critical to weight loss
success.
• Consistency – Getting about the same number of calories each day is important for your metabolism and your mindset. If you overdo it one
day, don’t try to make up for it the next day by not eating or cutting your calories drastically. Get right back on track by following this guide!
Results & Expectations
Results will vary depending on your age, starting weight, and exercise level but on average you may lose 1-3 lbs per week and experience increased
energy levels.
5 Tips for Long-Term Success
1. Keep a food log including hunger levels and water intake. Free online food logs and mobile apps are available at www.myfitnesspal.com and
www.loseit.com
2. Weigh and/or take measurements weekly – no more and no less. Weighing weekly rather than daily or every other day is best. You’ll track
your progress and keep yourself in check without getting discouraged if the scale doesn’t move for a few days. And remember, weight is just
a number and it’s influenced by muscle gain as well as fat loss. Feeling how your clothes fit can often be a better indicator of progress as your
body adapts to exercise and nutrition changes.
3. Measure portions – To avoid portion creep, use measuring cups and spoons for grains (rice, pasta, cereal), beans, nuts, oils, and dairy. Use
the Portion Sizes Guide for other foods.
4. Plan ahead – Make a meal plan for the week or log your food a day in advance. Planning sets you up for success, especially for social events
and eating out.
5. Practice your desired long-term habits – It’s easy to justify poor eating choices when you’re only focused on the short term. Focus on the
long term satisfaction of a slimmer, healthier you rather than the temporary gratification you’ll get from splurging.
How to Use this Guide
• Eat breakfast within 90 minutes of waking up and balance your meals and snacks throughout the day
– Don’t go longer than 5-6 hours without eating
– If you’re not used to eating breakfast, start out small with a piece of fruit and have something else 1-2 hours later. Your body adapts to
not eating breakfast, but as soon as you start eating early in the day and cutting back on dinner portions you’ll notice your hunger will
increase. This is a good sign your metabolism is working!
• Mix and match meal options
– Select 1 option from the appropriate meal plan (male or female) for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, paying close attention to portion sizes
– Select 1-2 snack options per day
– You have the option to substitute one snack for one treat under 150 calories
– Use the meal plan, sample options, and grocery list to create your own meals for more variety
58
Assembly / Owner’s Manual
– You can swap out any type of protein, vegetables or smart carbs for the suggested meal options. For example:
•
Turkey for tuna
•
Any fish or seafood for chicken
•
Cooked vegetables instead of salad
• Eat your calories
– Cut out high calorie beverages like soda, juices, coffee drinks, and alcohol
– Stick with water, unsweetened tea, and coffee. Aim for a minimum of 64oz (1.9 liters) of water per day to stay well hydrated
• If you’re still hungry after or in between meals:
– Have a glass of water and wait 15-20 minutes. Many times we mistake thirst (or even boredom!) for hunger. Wait out the initial urge to eat
and sometimes it will pass.
– If you’re still hungry after waiting 15-20 minutes have a snack or mini-meal with fruit, vegetables, and protein.
If your goal is muscle gain or strength:
• Use the same meal plan but increase portion sizes in the same ratios to increase the total number of calories you eat every day. For example,
increase portion sizes of protein and smart carbs at meals by 50%. Adding a snack is another option to meet your body’s increased calorie
needs in order to gain muscle and strength.
• Focus on post-workout nutrition by having one of your snacks within 30 minutes after you complete your workout. Make sure to have a combination of carbohydrates such as fruit with protein (yogurt, milk, or protein powder) to promote muscle growth and recovery. Chocolate milk is
also a great option.
Meal Plan Overview
The female meal plan provides about 1400 calories, and the male plan provides about 1600 calories, of high quality nutrition to not only help you
lose weight and feel great but get the most out of your calories. The vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants from eating mostly whole foods help support optimal health. These calorie levels will result in healthy weight loss for the majority of people. Keep in mind that everyone’s metabolism is very
different depending on age, height, weight, activity level, and genetics. Pay close attention to your weight, hunger levels, and energy and adjust your
calories if needed.
Follow these guidelines if you’re over 55:
• If you’re over 55, you need fewer calories because your metabolism slows as you age. Stick with three meals with one optional snack per day.
Follow these guidelines if you’re under 25:
• If you’re under 25 you may need more calories. Add another snack if you feel low on energy or are extremely hungry.
Breakfast
Breakfast includes a smart carb, fruit, and a source of protein, which will also have fat. With a balance of carbohydrates and fiber from the smart carb
and fruit combined with protein and fat, you’ll energize your day and help control hunger levels throughout the day.
Snacks
Each snack is a balance of carbohydrates and protein to keep your blood sugar more consistent, which means you won’t experience hunger and
energy level spikes and drops.
This happens when you have a high carb-only snack like chips, candy, soda, crackers, or pretzels.
Lunch and Dinner
Lunch combines filling fiber from vegetables and smart carbs with a lean, or low-fat, protein. The healthy fat can come either from the protein added
during cooking (nuts on a salad) or as a dressing or sauce (such as oil and vinegar salad dressing).

100% whole wheat bread
Sprouted grain breads
Light or whole wheat english muffins
Sandwich or bagel thins
Corn or low-carb whole wheat tortillas
High-fiber wraps
Plain oats: 1 minute or old fashioned
Whole grains: brown rice, bulgar, barley, quinoa, couscous
Tips: Look for 100% whole wheat as the first ingredient. Look for 4g of
fiber per slice or 5g per 2 slices of light or diet bread. Aim for bread with
less than 100 calories per slice.
DAIRY & DAIRY ALTERNATIVES
CRACKERS, SNACKS & ENERGY BARS
Plain non-fat greek yogurt
Kefir (yogurt like drink)
Organic low-fat milk
Enriched almond or soy milk
Cheese: feta, parmesan, mozzarella, light havarti, provolone, swiss,
string cheese, or single serving packages
Any unsalted nuts or seeds
Air-popped or light popcorn
Edamame in the pod
Energy bars
Crackers
Hummus
Tips: Limit crackers, pretzels, and chips to 2-3 servings per week.
Always pair with protein such as hummus, cheese, or nuts. Look for
energy bars with less than 200 calories and 20g of sugar and at least 3g
of protein and 3g of fiber. Look for crackers with less than 130 calories
and 4g or less of fat per serving.
MEAT, FISH, POULTRY & PROTEIN
Wild game
Salmon, halibut, tuna, tilapia, shrimp,
catfish, scallops, or crab
Pork loin, pork chops, or pork roast
Chicken or turkey breast or thighs (no skin)
Eggs and 100% egg whites
Lean beef: sirloin, chuck, round, tenderloin, 93% lean (organic and
grass fed is best)
Canned salmon or tuna (in water)
Nitrate-free, reduced sodium ham, turkey, chicken, or roast beef lunchmeat
Any type of bean, dry or canned low-sodium varieties
Tofu and tempeh
FATS & OILS
Avocado
Olive, grapeseed, walnut, sesame, or flaxseed oil
Butter/spreads: look for products free of trans fats and partially
hydrogenated oils on the ingredient list.
Tips: Light olive oil refers to the flavor, not the calorie content. Always
measure oil and butter. Even if a fat is considered healthy, it’s still very
high in calories and portions need to be controlled.
DRESSINGS, CONDIMENTS & SAUCES
Tips: Look for “Choice” or “Select” cuts of meat rather than “Prime”.
Prime cuts are fattier. Limit intake of highly processed meat and
imitation meat products like sausage, bacon, pepperoni, and hot dogs to
once a week or less.
FROZEN FOODS
All vegetables without sauce
All fruit
Grains and grain medleys
Vinegars: rice, wine, balsamic
All fresh or dried herbs and spices
Mustard
Salsa and chili sauce
Marinara sauce with no high-fructose corn syrup
Lemon and lime juice
Bottled minced garlic and ginger
Low-sodium soy sauce
Tips: Look for products free of MSG, added colors, and high fructose
corn syrup. Look for sauces under 50 calories per serving. Avoid cream
based sauces and dressings like ranch, bleu cheese, and alfredo.
All fruits and vegetables, fresh and frozen, are great choices. Since every meal has one or both, your shopping cart should reflect this.

Keep It Going
Tips for continued weight loss and maintaining changes
• Keep weighing yourself weekly, even after you’ve reached your goal weight
• Continue keeping a food log. If you have your meal plan well-established, log your food every other week to keep yourself on track. Don’t
feel like you have to do it every day.
• Prepare for plateaus. The scale might not budge for a few weeks or even months after some initial weight loss. This is normal and to be expected. It’s the body’s natural process for adjusting to your new lower weight. Stay focused on your long-term goal, celebrate your successes
and changes, and mix up your workouts to help overcome the plateau.
• Calorie adjustments for maintaining weight loss. Once you’ve reached your goal weight, you can increase your calories 100-200 per day
as long as your activity level stays the same
• Treat yourself. Have a non-food reward for each goal you hit such as a massage, a new outfit, or an outing with friends and family
• Use the resources below to find new recipes, get expert advice, and support to stay motivated
