Health Pointe 2.0 verdict

Yesterday was my last day of doing Health Pointe 2.0. Although I couldn't follow the food menu completely, I was able to lose weight. Amazing.

I think these are the crucial things that we need to do during Health Pointe.
  • Snack every hour accurately. Carry a watch that has timer. I carry my casio watch wherever I go. Once the timer beep, I will snack. This is something I had never done before. By snacking every hour, it keeps a blood sugar balance, stop craving and last but not least, tell the body that food is easily available. Thus, there isn't a need for the body to store fats.
  • Drinks lots of water. This is something that I didn't do enough in the past. When the body is well hydrated, it will flush out toxins and enables the kidney to function optimally. At least I don't feel thirsty this week. Usually, we tend to drink when we feel the thirsty. This is bad for the body.
  • Take carbohydrate out of the diet. Well, my diet doesn't really have much carbohydate since I'm not a rice person. I usually get my carbohydrate from vegetables and noodles.
  • This diet forces me to take fibre tablets before meal and because of this, I have more than one bowel movement per day. This is excellence because, we should have at least 2 to 3 times a day.
  • This diet forces me to take at least 4 Omega 3 per day. In the past, I will only take 2 or some days, not at all. I'm not too sure what it has done to me but one thing for sure, I think I didn't feel so stress. Taking so much oil didn't increase the fat percentage. I know a lot of people who put on weight when they take Omega 3. I wonder what did they do wrong?
  • The program encourages us to do at least 10,000 steps per day. As for me, I'm already doing a lot more. But what I discovered was, I have more energy to do my exercise as compared to last time. I felt I can last longer. I tested it by doing bodycombat follow by bodystep. Both are cardio intensive exercises that are not meant for beginners. I was able to last the entire bodystep class without feeling exhausted after combat. Not bad!!!
So what verdict is? I think whether you are over weight or not, I will encourage you to do Health Pointe for the following reasons:
  • If you are obese, just do it. God does not send us sms before he sends heart attack.
  • If you are fat % is above the recommended limit, just do it to burn some fats.
  • If your hydration level is below the recommended limit, just do it.
My readings before sleep:
Weight: 74.4
Fat%: 17.1% (This is definitely better than before)
Water: 60.5% (Hydration has gone up. This is good for the body)


  1. Hi Kenny Leow,

    I read your articles. I am in India and need more information on how to implement HealthPoint Program. We have Nutrilite here in India. So I hope the suggested supplimentation will be available.

  2. Hi Vaibhav,

    You can follow my blog entries and test it out.


  3. I agree that with it, that we must drink plenty of water or not may be a supplement water will do. this will keep us healthy, fit and we will be able to lose weight. Thanks for this and wish to read more of your work.

  4. The HealthPoint Program is really great but it is much much better if you are getting the products at 30% off. Also trying to fully adjust to the program, I've lost so much with the nutrilite weight loss program, but I'm still about 35lbs overweight, maybe my system has adapted to the nutrilite program so I'm trying to shift to HealthPoint

  5. Hi Kenny,

    I joined healthpointe program and lost 7.5 kg in my first cycle. but am stuck at that weight in my second cycle and it is not coming down at all. I am a vegetarian and am struggling for some good recipes involing - tofu, soya and egg whites.

  6. Hi,

    You need to check with your healthpointe coach on how to take it forward.
