Same: Some say use data for your tallest height. Others say use your present height. Most charts ask for present height. There is evidence that losing weight to match your decreasing height is not healthy. Body mass index (bmi) may be better than weight alone. Wt. In lbs divided by height in inches, squared, times 703. (18.5 to 25 is ideal).

Help please? How much should a 17 year old female weigh, if her height is in between 5"5-5"7?

She decides: A person's best weight, at any age, is whatever looks and feels best to him/her while he/she is able to take part successfully in whatever sports he/she prefers. A sprinter and a linebacker may be the same height but differ by over 100 lb with each at his best weight. The stuff about 'bmi' has all elite strength athletes 'overweight' / 'obese' and elite triathletes 'underweight.' common sense.

Is this possible to lose 20kgs in 2months? I weigh 79kgs, height 5ft, age 22

Weight loss: Fast weight loss is not the key. Research has shown that you increase the possibilities of failure if you try to lose it all faster. The key is -- going slow! Remember-- afterall you did not gain 20 K (approx 44ibs) in 2 mnths. I strongly suggest against such strategy

Around 65 kilos: For someone your height, you would need to weigh 65 kilos to have "normal" bmi or body mass index. The best way to achieve this is through high fiber/low sugar diet, portion control and exercise. Best of luck to you!

More calories: To gain weight you need to consume more calories then needed by your body on a regular day. Using the data that you gave, you need more then 1980 calories a day to gain weight. Look up basal energy expenditure for a calculator.
