1 doctor agrees

In brief: Varies

150-165 pounds is a good range but if you are athletic and muscular you could very easily carry more weight

In brief: 144-176

This is a 25-75 percentile range for that height, so some individuals are above or below that range and considered in 'normal range', with obesity at least 20 % above the top
