There is no ' ideal weight'. ...Read more

What is a good weight for a big-boned girl that is 5 feet 6 inches tall?

What is a good weight for a big-boned girl that is 5 feet 6 inches tall?

Around 150: According to the standards, the upper limit of a normal bmi for 5'6" is 150 pounds. Above that, you are considered overweight, but bmi isn't always the best determination. If you have 15-20 percent body fat, eat right and excercise regularly, i wouldn't worry too much about what the scale says. Too little body fat can cause problems just like too much can. ...Read more

I'm 28 year old. My height is 5 feet 6 inches. My weight is 64. My weight is normal or not..?

You decide: Forget the "ideal weight" numbers, they are subscience. Your best weight is what look and feels best to you while you are able to complete successfully in athletics with peers. Tall is fun but fit is much more important. Olympic track stars are "underweight", super-fit football linebackers are "obese" by the numbers. Hope lean muscle and lifetime fitness will be yours. ...Read more

You decide: The "ideal weight" stuff is sub-science. If you're able to keep up with your athletic peers and like how you look, it's probably all good. I can't diagnose polycystic ovary syndrome at a distance (are your periods okay?), but the mainstay of treatment is aerobic fitness / conditioning. It's in your hands. Good luck. ...Read more
