I am 44 years old male my height 6' and weight is 117 kg what should be my weight according to my age and height? Reply me

Not a number: Much depends on ur bone structure (light, heavy) and even more on how muscular you are. Even the much-discussed "body mass index" has flounded with the 2013 jama article with "overwieght" folks being healthier & living longer than "ideal weight" folks. Your best weight is what looks & feels right to you while you can compete successfully in aerobic sports. A man needs no grabbable bodyfat. Cheers. ...Read more

Check caloric intake: The most common reason for being underweight according to bmi assuming you are taking in enough calories for your height is genetics.

Check how many calories you are burning at rest, with daily activities, and with exercis. ...Read more

Ignore the charts: They're subscientific. The entire swim, track, and wrestling teams are likely to be "underweight". Your best weight is what looks and feels right to you, when you are able to compete successfully in athletics. I trust you want lean muscle & are exercising and staying fit; for bulk, try adding creatine and perhaps an electronic muscle stimulator to your resistance training. ...Read more
