I am about 5'8 and a bit under 140 pounds. Am i within the average weight for my height and age?

Yes you are close: It is best to stay close to 140 pounds although you have a little room(up to 145) in case you feel better about gaining a couple of pounds more. In general it is better to avoid gaining because it is much harder to lose it later ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. I would not expect that your bodyfat would drop because you start having periods. Maybe what your mother was referring to, was that your body curves can change with puberty. For instance, the waist can be smaller in comparison to the size of the chest or the buttocks. I am glad to hear that you have a healthy weight for your height and age. The most important thing is to be healthy. We all have fat. It is necessary to have fat in our bodies. One thing that i find sad, is that so many girls don't love their bodies. Many girls want to look like skinny models. Some girls go on drastic diets or eat too few calories to try to become really skinny. Did you know that it isn't always healthy to be really skinny? I recommend that you eat 5 servings a day of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day. Learn about eating healthy fats. I don't recommend that you try to eat really low calories at your age. Your body needs nourishment to grow. Try not to eat lots of junk food. Aerobic exercise is very important for good health; whether it is walking, or jogging or swimming etc. You take care. If you focus on being healthy and loving yourself - everything else fits into place. ...Read more

What is the average size of breast in age of 21, 45 kg weight, 5 foot 7 inches hieght? plz give me answer as soon as possible

What's average?: That's a difficult answer. Breast tissue is affected by genetics, body type and percent body fat. As you are extremely lean (BMI around 15) I would expect that you would have smaller breasts because of low body fat percentage but I have know idea about your genetic disposition to factor in. ...Read more
