* Healthy Body Weight Range The range with the least risk of weight-related health problems.

* Daily Caloric Intake The recommended number of calories from food/drinks to meet your weight goals. (Whether you want to lose weight, gain weight or maintain your weight-it can calculate your target caloric intake)
