How Do You Arrive at Your Ideal Bodyweight? Here’s an Important First Step.

by Thomas Phillips on January 25, 2013









“This article explores ideal body-weight for adult men and women of all “body-types” beyond the misleading scope of the BMI. It is the culmination of over 4 years of work dealing with nearly 1000 clients helping them reach unimaginable physique transformations. Based on their feedback (as far as how they look, feel and blood work analysis) this system has proven to be accurate time and time again. In the near future, I hope to share the UTC with many of YOU! Enjoy!” – Thomas

The UTC (Ultimate Transformation Challenge) Body Color System Rationale

The UTC body color system is not an arbitrary system. I have based my evaluation on several hundred men and women of all shapes and sizes who have successfully gone through this program over the past 4 years. Included in this evaluation are colleagues I’ve interviewed within the various sports I participate. I pay attention to those individuals who have had the most success based on how they look, feel and perform at their perceived ideal bodyweight.

Americans are most familiar with the BMI system that contests both men and women should meet the same height and weight standard.

See below:



Most men find the BMI standard too strict and will find excuses such as “The BMI doesn’t account for my muscle mass.” Although there is truth to this statement, in my experience, this conclusion is irrelevant and more will be said on this topic below. On the other hand, most women easily fall within the standards of the BMI but are totally dissatisfied with their physiques. Therefore, I set out to create a realistic optimal weight standard for men as well as a separate one for women.

At first glance, men will complain that the “green body” in the UTC body color system is too strict; however, there was a time when “normal weight” in America was far lower than either the BMI or the “green body” standard in the UTC body color system. Take a look at this scale from the 1950’s in a local diner near my home:



At one point, this scale from the 1950’s represented predictable height and weight for American men and women. Notice, there is a chart for men and a separate one for women. Compare these numbers to the high side of “normal” within the BMI chart. Clearly, particular things have occurred in our society that has pushed the standard of a “normal weight” to a ridiculous standard of “normalcy” that is no longer acceptable. Today the average 5’ 10” man walks around at over 190 pounds in America. Therefore, we must ask the question, “What has happened?”

The UTC explores the answers to this and many other questions in depth.
Most men want that “six pack” look. Take a look at the before and after height/weight of these UTC participants and the weight loss necessary in order to make their abs “pop.” In my experience, many men will tell me they need to lose “about 10 pounds” to have abs. The truth; however, is often closer to 30 pounds of weight loss for their abs to look like the individuals below.
