I've always been stuck in the 115 pounds weight range and i really would like to bring it down to 100 pounds. what would be the best method?
Healthy weight: Your weight is 115 pounds, or 52.1631 kg, and your height is 62.5 inches, or 1.5875 meters. So, your BMI is 52.1631/(1.5875*1.5875) = 20.7 kg/m^2. BMI stands for "Body Mass Index", and that is how we determine whether or not someone needs to lose weight. A NORMAL BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9. So I can't advise you to lose any weight at all. You are at a very healthy weight now, so stay there! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
