You should genetically end up here, plus or minus two inches. If you fall below that threshold, see an endocrine doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

If my son is age 12 but has a bone age of one year behind (taken about 5 years ago) would I use age 11 in one of the height calculators?

If my son is age 12 but has a bone age of one year behind (taken about 5 years ago) would I use age 11 in one of the height calculators?

Not necessarily: A bone age of 1 year behind from 5 years ago could very well have changed by now--could be that the bone age has caught up and now he is a bone age of 12, not 11. Or maybe his bone age is even ahead and he is 13, not 12. You should use his chronological age, 12. And if you are still worried about his height, go see an endocrinologist and have another bone age and workup done. ...Read more

I used two calculators to find my target heart rate, with different results. One used my resting heart rate. Which should I use for losing weight?

I used two calculators to find my target heart rate, with different results. One used my resting heart rate. Which should I use for losing weight?

No magic number: There's no perfect number. Here a good rule of thumb. Subtract your age from 220. This is your maximum predicted heart rate. Multiple by 60%. This is your recommended target heart rate. Example: age 44. 220-44=176. 0.6x 176=105. 105 is your target. Remember: you'll lose more weight by reducing your intake than by trying to burn it up. Any exercise at any heart rate is beneficial for dieters. ...Read more

What should my calorie intake be to lose weight? My first Doctor said 1200 but calculators say 2100. 310lbs 5'3" female 22 years old. Thank you!

What should my calorie intake be to lose weight? My first Doctor said 1200 but calculators say 2100. 310lbs 5'3" female 22 years old. Thank you!

It depends: Do you want to sustain your weight or lose weight? It may be best to consider weight loss since a 5'3" frame will have diffculty sustaining that weight over time without joint damage. Your calorie recommendations are extremes on a spectrum. I would suggest starting at 2500 carefullly counted for 2 months are drop by 100 every 2 months until you get to 1500. Return to 1800 when at goal weight. ...Read more
