If you are under 5 ft it might be a bit high, if you are 5 ft 3 or more you might be underweight. See http://www. Rush. Edu/rumc/page-1108048103230.Html for more information being underweight can be as serious as being overweight-many teen girls have an unhealthy obsession with weight.

How to know which diet makes you loose the most weight the fastest? (16 year old girl)

Physiology: To lose weight, one has to eat less calories than they expend. So if you eat, say, 1500 calories per day, & you burn 1600, you will lose weight. If you eat 1700 calories per day, & you burn 1500 you will gain weight. It's as simple as that. No way around this fact. Any diet that works has to use this basic principle. Has to be. This is true at any age in any person or animal. Basic biology.

I'm a 16 year old girl who is 5'2 and 100 pounds and need help gaining weight?

I'm a 16 year old girl who is 5'2 and 100 pounds and need help gaining weight?

You actually do not: At 5'2" that is a healthy weight. If you want to sculpt your body shape, that should be done through exercise. By becoming physically fit, you will gain weight because muscle weighs so much more than fat, and the health benefits are enormous. If you wish a bigger bust, strengthening the pectorals major and minor are excellent. If you want a more prominent butt, exercise all of your gluteals.

I'm a 16 year old girl, height: 162cm, weight: 42 kg, if I eat 2600+ calories a day, how much weight would I gain?

I'm a 16 year old girl, height: 162cm, weight: 42 kg, if I eat 2600+ calories a day, how much weight would I gain?

1 kg: Your BMR (basal metabolic rate) calculates to about 1300 cal/day. If you did no exercise and ate 2500 cal/day you would gain 1200 cal/day, times 7 is 8400 cal. This is equivalent to just over 1 kg of weight or 2.4 lbs. Since you are significantly underweight currently, you need to eat more (and exercise) until your bmi is above 18.
