Creating an Exercise and Nutrition plan will help the author attain her weight loss goals. Maria is currently at least 20 lbs overweight. She is 5 ft. 1 inches female weighing 115 pounds, which is a healthy weight range for the height. However, Maria’s body mass index (BMI) is 40.1, which shows that Maria is slightly overweight. According to Weight and Waist Measurement: Tools for Adults (2004), a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered healthy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
