If i weigh 250lbs about how much should I be able to lift? Im working out and i can only bench 175lbs thats weak for a guy my size. Im 5'9 in height

Keep working: The key is to hit the gym hard. A respectable gym guy can bench his weight; most non-fitness guys of course can't. Eat sensibly, get used to being good-sore ; good-hungry, work your pecs 3x/week ten sets of three reps maximum, consider creatine but shun illegal steroids. You'll get what you want. Glad you're doing this. ...Read more

I am 29 years old height 5' my weight is 65.5kg i need to loose how much weight?What medicine can I take to reduce my weight?

Don't mess with meds: You would only need to lose about 7.5kg to get down to into the normal bmi range. To do this best, you need to find a way of eating and exercising that you can live with for the long-term. A great way to eat is to avoid simple, white carbs, including white rice and pasta, as well as white bread. Eat meats and fats, veggies and fruits. Exercise regularly and you'll see weight coming off! ...Read more

I am 5.4 inches tall and I have 90kg weight. How I can be tall more and loss my weight?

I am 5.4 inches tall and I have 90kg weight.  How I can be tall more and loss my weight?

Eat less & exercise: It is impossible to grow taller at age 24 but you can lose weight- the key is not a temporary diet but permanent changes. Sugars & simple carbs from grains esp. cause weight gain. I like Dr. Furhman's diet: http://www.drfuhrman.com/library/what-is-a-nutritarian-diet.aspx Dr. Weil has useful info: https://tinyurl.com/m8avwzh- see his "discuss that" link in his article. Exercise is also important. ...Read more
