Interactive Menu Planner
We consider the Menu Planner a valuable tool, and we’re pleased to hear that you agree. The Menu Planner is part of a family that also includes the Aim for a Healthy Weight website and BMI calculator. These resources were developed as part of the implementation plan for the “Clinical Guidelines on the Identification, Evaluation, and Treatment of Overweight and Obesity in Adults” that were released in 1998.
New obesity guidelines are currently in development, and upon their release the Menu Planner and other tools will be updated and then re-released. In the meantime, the Menu Planner will be taken offline for a short period of time to accommodate updating/redevelopment. You can track status of development of the new guidelines online, and more information specific to the obesity guidelines can be found on the NHLBI web site.
