Ideal weight by age and height

Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight by age and height


Avatar n tn Your ideal weight depends on your age, as well as your height and weight. A child's ideal weight will be different from that of a teenager and a teenager will be different from that of an adult. There are a variety of exercises that will burn fat.
Avatar f tn Please verify your height. Are you 57" or 5'7". Ideal weight is not based on age, alone. It's based on a calculation of current height, weight, activity level and age....... I can help you do that, if you like.
Avatar f tn Hi there and thanks so much for posting this question I would suggest that at your age you are careful with changes in your metabolism. What is metabolism? Metabolism is a collection of chemical reactions that takes place in the body's cells. Metabolism converts the fuel in the food we eat into the energy needed to power everything we do, from moving to thinking to growing. If you want to lose weight The safest amount of weight you can lose is anything from .5 to 2 lbs a week.
15977349 tn?1444392162 The doctor told me my weight was ideal of my age / height. I'm 5foot5 (or 5foot4) weight just under 9 stone. Unfortunately I don't know my BMI, but as you can see in my picture I'm honestly not big.
Avatar m tn My height is around 5 feet 6 inchers and my weight is 84kg. Can you tell me what should be the my normal body weight.
Avatar f tn The ideal body weight is based on the person's height and body built. All these take into consideration when finding ones ideal weight.
Avatar f tn Way to much weight for a12 yr old.At 15, I weighed 150, & that was to much forme!!!I ended up losing 35lbs. to get tomy ideal weight!!!
Avatar f tn The ideal body weight for your height (5ft 2in) is between 125 and 136.63 lbs. So your weight is fine. If you are worried about it you can just start getting involved in school sports or if that is not your thing, just start walking for 1/2 or more a day. It never hurts to be more fit!
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, I'm trying to loose weight... I weight 151lb and would like to weight between 120lb and 110lb. I'm 5'4 with a BMI of 25.92kg/m2 and Im 19 years old.... Oh, I'm also breast feeding, I had my son 3 and a half moths ago. So here are my questions.... Is the weight that I want healthy for me? Could I reach my goal in 60 days? Can I actually do that insanity work out? (Cause. I just got it.
Avatar f tn Given your height of 5'4", a body weight of about 146 lb. would give you a BMI of about 25, which would put you at the top of the range of what is generally considered an appropriate weight.
Avatar n tn From what i can find out you are at the top end of the healthy weight range for your age and height, the 130 lbs would put you right in the middle of the Ideal weight line so they are both correct, Current Weight: 145 Healthy Weight Range: 114 - 149 You should aim to fall within a healthy weight range. Current BMI: 24.1 Healthy BMI range: 18.5 - 24.9 Daily calorie level...
18428579 tn?1464968484 If yes how much should i lose. If no, what is my ideal wight. If 55 kg is not my ideal weight, what is my ideal weight?? I wanna lose. Because i have 3-4 slim friends who are taller than me but around my weight.
Avatar n tn I would definitely ask your pediatrician to have her seen by a pediatric endocrinologist, it may indeed be early puberty, the dheas is a hormone that the adrenal gland makes and is a sign of early but almost normal variation of the adrenal gland maturation process that can occur in this age range in some kids.
Avatar f tn In my opinion your weight is ideal! You dont have to loose WEIGHT but you have to build MUSCLE. Also you are only 13. Hormones should be kicking in by the moment so weightloss diet may do some damage to your growing body and its systems. So as a healthcare proffessional i recomend excercising to build up muscle (muscles will require energy so they will burn fat to get some = flat tummy etc.) and believe me they will help.
Avatar f tn Your weight is between the 50-25th percentile for your age. The weight you are at an ideal for your height. You do not need to lose weight. You can tone-up your body by exercising. Aerobic exercises would be good, such as walking, stair stepping, dancing, and biking. These exercises help your heart and body to stay healthy. Yoga is another form of exercise to try also.
2095187 tn?1333091434 Your weight is actually low for your age and if you want to grow taller, please do not go on a diet to lose weight. The average weight for your age and height is 115 pounds. If you think you look fat, then I would exercise as it is a way to tone muscles instead of dieting to lose weight. I don't think you are fat. The pictures in magazine are air brushed digitally on the computer to make girls look thinner than they are in real life. http://www.chartsgraphsdiagrams.

Avatar f tn But as you and I are about the same age, height and weight (previously was in the 170s), I thought maybe I could help you. Without a long history, I'll just cut to the chase and say if I eat too much fat, I can't lose weight regardless of what I do. I know the " low fat" diet isn't in vogue any longer, but I guess my body didn't get that memo. I try to stay around 15-20% of my calories per day from fat. Anything more than that and I get stalled.
Avatar f tn I also get easily knocked down by common cold so I am really pushing for gaining my ideal weight for my age and height, which would be about 20 lbs more. What Im doing now is just try to add up on the food proportion and eat as frequently as I can. I've been on this for a year now and unfortunately I've not been successful in maintaining the desired pounds yet. So I think we can do this! At least the aim and goal is clear to both of us. Let us not get discouraged easily.
Avatar n tn I know that peak flow readings are determined by height, age and WEIGHT. Looking at the normals for my height and age I should be greater than I am because I lower than the average weight.
Avatar f tn You are the perfect weight for your height . Perhaps you just need to tone up and gain some muscle by doing some light weights. Go to a ymca if you can. They will set up a program for you. You are definitely NOT overweight..
Avatar n tn but yeah it can be different if your short/tall over/under weight pre pregnancy and what not.
Avatar f tn How far along are you? Check online for ideal weight for your height and age. Then if you are approaching 12 wks, you need to have gained at least 1 (up to 2) kg. 43 kg is rather low as a starting point. Perhaps you can ask if you need to have a blood test to see why you are not putting on weight? There could be underlying factors that could affect your baby later on. I don't want to alarm you but I've realised over these short few weeks how important food and weight is during pregnancy.
