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

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.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. If the prominence of the chest wall is caused by adipose tissue, then liposculpture surgery may suffice. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
