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. ...Read more

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). ...Read more
