You are automatically placed on a food unit level when you input your details in program set up.
- This is based off your height, weight and other energy factors.
- You may be put on level 1, level 2, or level 3.
You can change your food unit level on the Total Wellbeing Diet online, if needed.
The food group unit recommendations have been determined to ensure you meet your nutrition requirements.
Level 1 is lowest in kJ at 6000kJ/day, providing the least amount of food units and provides sufficient nutritional to meet requirements, good for weight loss.
Level 2 is for those who have increased requirements e.g. breastfeeding, vigorous training etc and is 7000kJ/day, good for weight loss.
Level 3 is for those who have a lot of weight to lose and may have higher nutritional requirements at 8000kJ/day, good for weight loss, and for those who do not need to lose much more weight can be changed to for of maintenance program.
While it is okay to vary your food unit intake occasionally, we recommend you stick as closely to your food group unit targets as possible to ensure you meet your nutritional requirements.
Always contact our support team at email@example.com if you have any concerns.

Note: if you change to a higher food unit level and still wish to lose weight, monitor how you go as level 1 is optimum for weight loss.
