Depends on body type: There is no magic or healthy weight for a given height. By eating well balanced meals and by exercising regularly, you will achieve a lean body mass that is right for you. To be healthy, it is recommended to do cardiovascular activity 30 mins/day, 4 or 5x/wk. Add resistance exercises to improve tone. Never aim to lose more than 2 pounds per week. Check with ur doctorfor personalized recommendation.

With this weight/height how much weight would a bulimic lose?

None: Despite being a life-threatening illness, bulimia is often not apparent by weight loss. Because so many calories are consumed during a binge, some will remain in one's system even after vomiting or laxative use.

Falling below normal height or weight required for gymnastic stars?

Eval: Usually gymnasts are more concerned about exceeding height and weight norms, not falling below them. Because height and weights for competitive gymnasts tends to be low already, i would consult with your physician for medical evalation. Depending on the cause for low height/ weight the physician may recommend working with a nutritionist or other measures.
