What is an ideal weight for a goal?

What is an ideal weight for a goal?

NOT a goal: Please forgive me -- the goal is to enjoy life, be healthy and do the things you enjoy, not to pursue a number. And in fact, your weight will set itself when you are doing the things that are most enjoyable and healthy. Your "ideal weight" is whatever looks & feels right to you while you can keep up with peers at fitness activities. All the rest is sub-science. Enjoy your life & be wise. ...Read more

What is the ideal weight for a 5 ft person?

Body mass index: We use body mass index (http://www.Nhlbi.Nih.Gov/guidelines/obesity/bmi/bmicalc.Htm) to determine underweight, normal weight, overweight & obese based upon height in adults regardless of gender. Normal weight for 5' is 95#-128# but doesn't take into account body composition. Better to have more muscle than fat. Being skinny fat isn't healthy either. So 128# of muscle healthier than 95# of fat. ...Read more

What is a healthy weight for a 5'8'' female?

What is a healthy weight for a 5'8'' female?

There is a range: YEARS ago, when I was in medical school, we were taught that ideal weight was 100# for a woman 5 feet in height; then add 5 pounds per inch, so for 5'8"--140 pounds. This is pretty close. But you need to make allowances for muscularity, fitness, genetically bigger bones, etc., so I would say a range of 135 to 150 pounds would be ideal. You could also aim for 22-26% body fat. Good wishes:) ...Read more
