What's the average BMI for 20 year old females?

What's the average BMI for 20 year old females?

Depends on height: Hi. BMI is a measure of body habitus that is calculated using your height and weight. It does not take age (in adults) into account. So 20 years old doesn't matter. Height, however, is indispensable in calculating BMI. Therefore, in the absence of critically important information, we have no way to tell you what an average BMI for (20 yo) women is. Good luck!

My weight is 66kg now. I want to reduce it to 60 kgs over a period of one year from now. Can I do that even my BMI is average? What is the best method

My weight is 66kg now. I want to reduce it to 60 kgs over a period of one year from now. Can I do that even my BMI is average? What is the best method

Slow and consistent: Losing 6 kg (~13 lb) over a one year period of time is reasonable. That is only a decrease of about 3500 calories a month or a little over a 100 calories a day. Start by reducing or eliminating any high calorie drinks such as soda, juice or alcohol. Start a consistent walking program, minimize fast food, concentrate on whole foods: lean meat, veggies and fruit. Have a cheat meal every now and then. Read more

Going to the gym: Of course going to the gym is good for you. What you do at the gym is more important.

I am a 16 year old female. I am very active and I want to calculate my BMI but for a highly active teenager. Height: 5.6" weight: 155 age: 16 years ol?

Fair: Your bmi is 25 kg/m2 and considered slightly overweight. However it is more important to measure the waist line size which should be much less than 35 inch in a female of your age. Do note that if you are somewhat muscular, the bmi may well be normal. Read more

I am a 22 year old male with a BMI of 20.1 yet I have a blood pressure reading of 141/82. Is this safe? Can I improve it or will it get worse with age

Not quite normal: Diet, exercise and salt restriction will help drop your systolic BP (top number) ideally less than 130-139...; however, the diastolic BP of 82 is fine.
I suggest keeping a BP journal. Buy a reliable digitial BP machine and check your pressure 3 times/day: A.M., noon and PM. Average out your daily #s and bring to your PCP. BMI is perfect. Read more
