If my height is 163, how much should I weight ?

If my height is 163, how much should I weight ?

You decide: "ideal weight" is subscience / entertainment. Your best weight is whatever looks and feels right to you while you are able to take part at a level with peers in your favorite sports. The "body mass index" was never intended for individuals, and leads to absurdities -- the olympic track team is "underweight" while a super-fit linebacker is "obese.". ...Read more

My weight is 83 kg, height 182? how much gram of food shall i eat per dinner?

Body mass index: It depends whether you are muscular and active, or "soft" and sedentary. But for a 21 yo male of average activity, you would need approximately 3000 calories (130 grams carbohydrate and 66 grams protein) each day, spread among 3 or more meals. If you eat 3 meals, each the same, that would be 45 g carb and 22 g protein for a 1000 cal dinner. Stay active! Eat healthy! ...Read more

My 3 month old is 50% height but 80% weight. Does this mean I'm feeding her too much?

My 3 month old is 50% height but 80% weight.  Does this mean I'm feeding her too much?

Not necessarily: I find these numbers in the first 3 years more a simple set of parameters that help focus on growth.It is rare to have any kid with identical ht/wt/head size parameters. I don't find what you mention means anything more than baby is not underweight. ...Read more

I'm 16 years old whose 4'11,is it healthy/unhealthy that I weight 92 pounds? How much should I weight for my age and height?

I'm 16 years old whose 4'11,is it healthy/unhealthy that I weight 92 pounds? How much should I weight for my age and height?

Considered normal: This Ht/wt match places you in the normal weight for height range by both BMI and CDC growth chart criteria. As you are likely aware, you are shorter than most of your age equivalent peers, but that comes with the need to weigh the appropriate but smaller amount than most of them. You could weigh more and stay in the normal range but any less and you would be considered underweight. ...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'm a fit 24 year old and have been 5'6 160lbs since I was 16. Is this too much weight for my height? I've been +/- 5 pounds since then.

I'm a fit 24 year old and have been 5'6 160lbs since I was 16. Is this too much weight for my height? I've been +/- 5 pounds since then.

A bit over: At 5'6" and 160 lbs your bmi is 25.8, which is a bit over the recommended 24.9 or lower. Your recommended weight range is 115-154 lbs. So by losing 6 lbs you can get down to a bmi of 24.9. It's not necessary to get down to 115. As long as you're eating healthy and exercising, being within the range is good. ...Read more
