Hi, I am 18 years old and my height is 5.2" and my weight is 60. So is that weight ok for me?

If it was supposed to be 600 pounds you are morbidly obese. If you are 600 kg - then you are in big trouble. If none of these guesses are correct - then please re-ask and provide us with more complete information. (otherwise we are just guessing). ...Read more

You need to get with a physician and see what your system could handle then work with a nutritionist to get there. ...Read more
