Bmi and average weight for a 5'10" female?

Bmi and average weight for a 5'10" female?

130-170 pounds.: By BMI calculations, your weight should be in the 130-170 range to be considered healthy. Granted the BMI is not an ideal index as it doesn't take into account body composition (muscle versus fat) or coincident medical conditions. But that would be your range strictly based on your height. ...Read more

What's the average BMI for 20 year old females?

What's the average BMI for 20 year old females?

Depends on height: Hi. BMI is a measure of body habitus that is calculated using your height and weight. It does not take age (in adults) into account. So 20 years old doesn't matter. Height, however, is indispensable in calculating BMI. Therefore, in the absence of critically important information, we have no way to tell you what an average BMI for (20 yo) women is. Good luck! ...Read more

What is the I deal weight for a 5ft 5 Australian female aged 22 years old? Is BMI a good measure to rely on?

What is the I deal weight for a 5ft 5 Australian female aged 22 years old? Is BMI a good measure to rely on?

Can't tell, but...: A starting point is 130 lbs. A lot depends on a person's body build. Some are naturally very thin, others thick or big-boned, but most people are somewhere in between. "Australian" is a location, so that doesn't help either, as many different types of bodies are in Australia. BMI is helpful if a person is of average musculature. If very muscular, a perfectly fine person will have a high BMI. ...Read more

Fair: Your bmi is 25 kg/m2 and considered slightly overweight. However it is more important to measure the waist line size which should be much less than 35 inch in a female of your age. Do note that if you are somewhat muscular, the bmi may well be normal. ...Read more

Dear doctor, I am a female of age 25 with BMI 28. I am trying to conceive. Will that be a problem. Please advice me on the same.

Cycles regular?: If your cycles are regular, there is no reason to think there is problem. Most women have a 28 day cycle, and they ovulate on cycle day 1 (cycle day 1 is the first day of your period). The most fertile time is a day or two before ovulation, and there if usually a thin, egg white mucous discharge. If your cycles are irregular, you need to be evaluated. ...Read more

Is there a different BMI calculation for men and woman?

Limitations of BMI: The calculation is the same. Men tend to be taller, which to some extent offsets the greater weight due to muscle. The bmi is not the be-all end-all of body fat measurements. It is a useful index for most people, and in large populations, but individual people can be muscular, stocky, and otherwise have low body fat but still a high bmi. ...Read more

Eat protein: Your BMI indicates you are underweight. However, this may be ok for your genetics ("normal" BMI is lower for people of Asian or Indian ethnicity than European or African background). Still, your goal is obviously to grow bigger, stronger muscles, not to drop weight. I advise you to be sure you are getting in 80 grams of complete protein daily and at least 14 grams within 1 hr of lifting weight. ...Read more

Do you think the BMI chart for women in America is too lenient? Is it okay to go lower than the 18.5 BMI if I still have excess body fat?

Do you think the BMI chart for women in America is too lenient? Is it okay to go lower than the 18.5 BMI if I still have excess body fat?

BMI: A BMI of 18.5 is low, but the measurement has limitations. It is only weight/height (2) so people that are short/tall/chunky/small boned can all skew the numbers. Presumably you are over age 18, and not suffering from anorexia nervosa. Are you menstruating? You feel that you still have excess body fat. Suggest you let your physician help you with this determination. ...Read more
