130-170 pounds.: By BMI calculations, your weight should be in the 130-170 range to be considered healthy.

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's the average BMI should have before start ab exercises?

What's the average BMI should have before start ab exercises?

Need to delay?: There are variations of crunches and a host of exercises that can strengthen the abdominal muscles. If one is looking for exercises for only the rectus abdominis, then a pt or physiatrist can help if that person has a particular condition. If one is looking for permission to exercise, the primary care physician can begin an evaluation for suitability and safety of fitness programs. I'd start there. ...Read more

My weight is 66kg now. I want to reduce it to 60 kgs over a period of one year from now. Can I do that even my BMI is average? What is the best method

Slow and consistent: Losing 6 kg (~13 lb) over a one year period of time is reasonable. That is only a decrease of about 3500 calories a month or a little over a 100 calories a day. Start by reducing or eliminating any high calorie drinks such as soda, juice or alcohol. Start a consistent walking program, minimize fast food, concentrate on whole foods: lean meat, veggies and fruit. Have a cheat meal every now and then. ...Read more

Essential: The most common type of hypertension is primary essential hypertension which tends to run in families. Secondary causes of hypertension are rarer and include kidney causes and glandular disturbances. Your md will guide you if he/she feels further testing is advisable. I'm sure some antihypertensive medication will be prescribed to lower your BP to around 120/80. ...Read more

Surgery Helpful.: Assuming a young man has achieved a long-term stable weight and there are no “causative agents” involved, surgery may be indicated. It is often best treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area.
