160 lbs and 5 ft 7. Am i overweight?

160 lbs and 5 ft 7. Am i overweight?

Ideal weight: Insurance tables for normal weights start at 100 lbs for the first 5 feet, then add 5 lbs per inch beyond 5 feet for females, or 7 lbs per inch for males. At 5 ft 7, your ideal weight if you are female should be 135, but 149 for a male. This is just one method for calculating a reference point for your information. You may want to look also at your body mass index. ...Read more

I am 5'6 and 192 lbs-am I overweight?

Yes, by BMI.: Granted, the BMI is a flawed governmental indicator that does not take body composition into account, but at your height and weight, your BMI of 31 would put you into the "obese" category. You should make some efforts to lose weight, as obesity does put you at risk for weight-related health concerns. ...Read more

Body mass index: Use http://www.Nhlbi.Nih.Gov/guidelines/obesity/bmi/bmi-m.Htm to calculate your body mass index (i'm curious, why did you use metric units if you're in buffalo, ny?) which comes out to 27.3 normal bmi is <25.

Hi i am 5ft 2 and weigh 62.60kg am i overweight?

Hi i am 5ft 2 and weigh 62.60kg am i overweight?

BMI 25.2: That height and weight would give you a BMI of 25.2 (just into the overweight category). 25-29.9 is considered overweight with anything over 30 considered to be obese. The BMI doesn't account for muscle mass, so if you are very athletic or a body builder then this wouldn't be an accurate assessment. I'd suggest a healthy lifestyle (whole clean foods and regular exercise and meditation) regardless ...Read more

Am i overweight thighs are big 5ft 2 and 120 lb is under 12

Am i overweight thighs are big 5ft 2 and 120 lb is under 12

Sorry : Sorry to disagree with you. But you are not obese or overweight. If you are a girl at your height - 110 to 121 pounds is fine. If you are a boy it would be an even higher weight. You put "bariatric surgery" as the specialty. You don't need bariatric surgery. Honey, you are only 12 years old. You need to learn to love yourself for who you are and how your are. ...Read more

I am a teenager my height is 159cm and my weight is 55kg so am i overweight?

Growth chart eval.: Your body mass index which is a ratio of the weight to height is normal. Since i don't know your exact age, your percentiles on the growth curve can not be plotted. Since your body mass index is normal, it is unlikely that your are overweight. Avoiding junk food, soda and fried foods, exercising daily and following up with your physician is advised. I hope this helps. ...Read more

I am 5"3 and 53kgs.  Sometimes I feel sluggish and bloated, am I overweight?

Not very: the precise figures depend on muscle mass but rule of thumb is 100 for 5 foot and 5 pound per inch over, so, about right. Lack of exercise is probably a more important risk factor. ...Read more

I'm 16 and a guy am I overweight cause I'm skinny fat, I'm 5'5 and 127 pounds?

I'm 16 and a guy am I overweight cause I'm skinny fat, I'm 5'5 and 127 pounds?

You're fine!: 127 pounds is an ok weight for you! if you were an adult, we might say ideal weight for a 5'5" male would be closer to 135 to 140 pounds, but you are in a state of growth/transition. I don't really know what you mean by "skinny fat" though. Just keep focusing on lots of fruits and veggies, some protein (meat, fish, poultry, cheese, eggs) and complex carbs, not sweets. ...Read more
