I am 16 years old girl and I am 5 feet 8 inches tall. What is the ideal weight?

General guidelines: There are many ways to look at this. For a 16 year old girl, the 50th %ile weight is 118 pounds, the 10th %ile is 100 pounds, and the 90th %ile is 154 pounds. Anywhere in that range probably is okay. If you calculate your bmi, and use adult guidelines, a normal bmi would occur between about 120 and 160 pounds. ...Read more

Not tall enough/180: The body mass index(BMI) for your height varies in the normal ranges from 130 to 155 lbs. Hopefully, this will give you a target range to begin a post partum diet and exercise program. ...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

You decide: Dr. Harte has given you good advice. The "ideal weight" charts are from a bygone age and are subscientific. Your best weight is what looks and feels right to you, when you are able to take part in physical exercise successfully at a level competitive with your peers or above. It's good that you ask, and I hope you'll focus on a healthy lifestyle all around rather than a number. ...Read more
