5ft 6 Inches Healthy Weight
I'm a 20 year old male 5ft 10 inches tall and I weigh 140. I feel like I'm too light, are there any ways to help gain good healthy weight back?
140 lbs: 1: What is the size of the male members of your family? If close to yours you are doing OK. 2: If not you should see both a dietitian and an athletic trainer. 3: Go online to "NuVal" where you will find a list of 100 items - some good, some not so good, and some not good at all. See how your current diet stands in relation to these items.
Varies: 150-165 pounds is a good range but if you are athletic and muscular you could very easily carry more weightSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 16 years old and about 62-63 inches. I run almost every day. What is a healthy weight for me?
The BMI chart: Age is only used for pediatric/youg adults, often calculated to age 18 or so. After this point, we only use height and wt to determine healthy vs not-healthy-wt ranges for both men and women. It is a rough estimate and provide you a guide to keep "ideal body wt" for better health. Since u r 16, consult your doc. My guess: 115-120lbs = good range. Consult doc. Good luck.
I am a 5'4 inch woman who has a small frame. I weigh 124 lbs. I eat right and exercise. Is this a healthy weight for me?
Yes: That is a perfect weight for you. The formula is 100 pounds for 5 ft, then 5 additional pounds for each inch above 5 ft. Your ideal weight is 120 plus or minus 10% (12 pounds). You are right in the range of where you should be. Great.
You decide: "ideal weight" is entertainment / subscience. Your best weight is whatever looks and feels right to you while you are able to compete successfully in the athletic pursuits that you enjoy.
135: 100 for 5 ft and add 5 lbs for each additional inch therefore 100 + (7x5) =135lbs you can add or subtract 10% (13 pounds) to get a range of 123-148 pounds for that height and age.
150lbs: For women: an easy formula to use for determining a healthy weight range based on height: calculate 100 lbs for the first 5 ft. Then add 5 lbs for every inch over 5 ft. So 100 + 30 = 130. Give or take 10% depending on the size of your frame. Small frame: 117 lbs med frame: 130 lbs large frame: 143 lbs.

I am 20 and I'm worried about my weight I weight 12stone 6 and am 5ft 8, is this a healthy weight to be?
Maybe, maybe not: Healthtap doctors are american physicians, so we talk in pounds and ounces. I'm guessing a stone is 14 pounds, so 12 stone 6 = 174 pounds? That might be ok, depending on whether a person is male, female, has lots of muscle, has little muscle, etc... The question of "healthiness" depends on other conditions (a person with diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, etc... Would do better being lighter).
Overweight: This is in the overweight category according to body mass index. Another important question would be your waist-to-hip ratio which is an indicator of health risks. You would want to reduce your weight slowly at no more than 1-2 pounds per week until you reach your goal. Check out this simple online tool at www. Webmd. Com/diet/calc-bmi-plus.
Ideal weight: Healthy weight is variable and depends on fitness, muscle, and body type.
Yes: This is considered a healthy weight for your height by published standards in the us.
