Ideal weight: Please go online and look for "Body Mass Index" (BMI). You find out where you are and where you should be doing to maintain your weight in the correct range. ...Read more

You decide: Ideal weight" charts are based on fallacies. If we believed them, then most triathletes would be "underweight" and most professional football players -- fantastic athletes -- would be "overweight." your ideal weight is whatever looks and feels right to you and enables you to perform your chosen sport(s) best. ...Read more

My height is 5 inches and weight is 64 kg.What should be my ideal weight according to my height?

My height is 5 inches and weight is 64 kg.What should be my ideal  weight according to my height?

Hmm. . .try again: I'm pretty sure you're more than 5 inches tall. To calculate "normal" weight, go to http://nhlbisupport.Com/bmi/ to determine weight range to achieve 18.5-25kg/m2 as normal. But don't forget that it's not just pure weight but also composition of weight. In other words, you want as much muscle as possible which suggests waist <35" in women & <40" in men. ...Read more

Hi my height is 174 cms and my weight is 90 kg. What should be my ideal weight and please provide a diet plan to reduce weight?

Hi my height is 174 cms and my weight is 90 kg. What should be my ideal weight and please provide a diet plan to reduce weight?

Overwight: Your body mass index (bmi) is 29.7. You are considered overweight. Your ideal weight should be less than 76 kg. The first part of any diet plan should be to reduce calories and increase exercise to build muscle tissue. Start you diet by avoiding high fructose corn syrup and fructose sugar except in whole fruits , and eat less of everything, sounds too easy right? Try it for just 30 days ! ...Read more

What is ideal weight for 22 year old female (170cm)? and 22 year old male? please in kg

What is ideal weight for 22 year old female (170cm)? and 22 year old male? please in kg

BMI: A BMI (Body Mass Index) of 18.5-24.9 is normal. For the 1.7m female the ideal weight would be between 54kg to 72kg. You would need the height of the male to calculate it. Use the following link from the CDC to see for yourself. http://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/assessing/bmi/adult_bmi/metric_bmi_calculator/bmi_calculator.html ...Read more

Body mass index=27.4: Read this 1st: http://www.menshealth.com/fitness/the-problem-with-BMI. We technically define normal weight via body mass index (BMI), regardless of gender, age & ethnicity (so it doesn't matter that you live in Bangladesh). Go to http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/educational/lose_wt/BMI/bmi-m.htm to calculate your BMI. Normal is 18.5-24.9. Theoretically you'd need to lose approximately 7kg. ...Read more

21 yo female, have always weighed 60kg during my teenage years, started dieting and now I am 45 kg, 164 cm, should I gain weight? My ideal weight 53

21 yo female,  have always weighed 60kg during my teenage years, started dieting and now I am 45 kg, 164 cm,  should I gain weight? My ideal weight 53

Puzzleing question: The data available in the US,from both body mass index and CDC growth standards show a young adult female at 164cm(64.5 in) to have a desired weight of 58kg and a healthy range of 53-62 kg.There are some obvious differences when comparing populations from different countries.By Us standards you would be considered underweight.see www.cdc.gov/growthcharts ...Read more

Is playing sport like judo and basketball two times per week the best for me if I am 16 years old , my height 171cm and my weight 95 kg ?

Keep Moving!: Your weight is > 13 kg too much for your current height, but you are still growing so i strongly recommend asking your doctor for a diet. The absolute minimum amount of exercise that you (and all of us) need for a healthy metabolism is 60 minutes daily. At your age you can also add a weight training program, & your new muscles will help you to burn excess calories--but start low & go slow! ...Read more

I eat will but i don't get weight though I have to get about 20 kg to be ideal cause my hight is 191 CM and weights 69 kg what to do?

I eat will but i don't get weight though I have to get about 20 kg to be ideal cause my hight is 191 CM and weights 69 kg what to do?

I bet you're fine: The "ideal weight" charts are entertainment, not science. The olympic track team is "underweight"; ultra-fit linebackers are "obese". If you're active in fitness / sports of your choice and keep up with your peers, your weight is fine. A man doesn't really want body fat. You can muscle up with resistance training; eating will take care of itself. ...Read more
