Calories: U really need a healthy diet that has fewer carbohydrates and fats and increased reliance on vegetables to lose weight effectively. Jogging and swimming can burn between 100 cal a mile to five or 600 cal an hour when swimming. 3500 cal is equal to 1 pound of fat so you can see it takes a lot of exercise. You need to work on diet as well. ...Read more

Weight loss: There are many basic metabolic rate calculators available online that you can calculate how many calories your body burns by doing nothing. On average there are 3500 calories/lb. If you want to lose 1.6 pounds you need to multiply 3500x1.6 and subtract how much you burn off. Let's say this comes out to 4200 calories. Try not to micromanage your weight.

Is going from 79 pounds to 105 in five months a healthy weight gain? And for someone five one what would a healthy weight be at age 22 not pregnant

Is going from 79 pounds to 105 in five months a healthy weight gain? And for someone five one what would a healthy weight be at age 22 not pregnant

Yes, it's fine: It sounds completely healthy to me. In fact, weighing 79 pounds if you are 5'1" would definitely be underweight. We often estimate ideal weight for women by saying you should weight 100 pounds at 5 feet, and then add 5 pounds per inch, so 105 pounds for 5'1" would be perfect. I hope you gained the 20+ pounds through eating more of good, healthy food. ...Read more
