Exercise guidelines

Participation in regular physical activity is recommended in conjunction with using Formulite as a weight control tool. Regular exercise has many health benefits and reduces the risk of diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers. Engaging in physical activity prevents unhealthy weight gain and aids with achieving long-term weight-maintenance.

Performing some exercise is better than none at all, so whatever you can fit it into your schedule is worthwhile. Some examples of effective forms of exercise are:

  • Walking
  • Jogging
  • Swimming
  • Dancing
  • Tennis
  • Cycling

To achieve optimal results on the Formulite program and to gain the maximum health benefits from physical activity, it is recommended to exercise for 30-45 minutes on most, if not all, days of the week.

Muscle strengthening resistance exercises should be done at least 2 times per week. Examples of resistance exercises are:

  • Lifting weights
  • Body weight exercises
  • Yoga
  • Pilates

Keeping your fluids up is an essential part of healthy eating



Keep your fluids up

Drinking enough water each day can be challenging, but staying hydrated is essential to achieve optimal health and weight loss. Some of the key benefits of hydration are:

  • Main component of the body’s cells
  • Lubricates the brain and joints
  • Transports nutrients around the body
  • Water makes up 50-60% of your body weight
  • Aids with the digestion and breakdown of nutrients
  • Helps to keep blood pressure within the healthy range by optimising cardiac output
  • Aids with kidney function to clear waste from the body
  • Helps to regulate body’s temperature


The average daily fluid requirement for an adult is 2L per day. This may be too little or too much for your individual needs. Knowing how much fluid you need each day is simple, when using the following formula:

Multiply 35ml x your current body weight (kg) to get your minimum daily fluid requirement in millilitres.

Not all fluids are the same in their calorie content. Some drinks can promote poor health and weight gain so it’s best to avoid these options:


  • Alcohol
  • Soft drinks
  • Fruit juices
  • Tonic water
  • Sports drinks
  • Energy drinks


The best types of fluids to drink are those that are calorie free and low in caffeine. Below are the best choices to keep you hydrated on the Formulite program:


  • Plain water
  • Sparkling water
  • Diet cordial
  • Tea
  • Herbal tea
  • Coffee (limit to 2 cups per day)
  • Soda water
  • Diet soft drink (limit to once per week)
