Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight chart ideal body weight


140437 tn?1215113342 I have just been all around the internet looking at the 'ideal weight' calculators. As a recovered anorexic I was amazed to discover that at 9 stone 3 and 5 ft 4 I am concidered over weight. How ironic that after years of being under weight I should now - as a healthy woman finally - be concidered "over" weight at a UK size 10 US 6. Thats obscene - is anyone making money from this?
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 f tn In a dog with ideal weight, you should be able to easily feel his ribs and see a slight bit of the last rib, but the rest of the ribs or the pelvis and spine bones should not be poking out. You can see a chart of body weight conditions at the following website:
1019636 tn?1298263627 if you go on google or even ring your surgery, try to find out how to calculate your body mass index, or maybe try to find a chart on google or something that indicates what weight you should be for your height.... Im pretty sure there is some sort of reference chart used to calculate a persons ideal weight... and im pretty sure its calculated by your age and height...
Avatar f tn It calculates your body mass index based on your starting weight and height and plots your current weight on a chart which shows what the healthy range is for your body. I find it useful because I don't have to do the math myself. I check it about once every 1 or 2 weeks. It's right on target with what my doctor told me to gain so I trust it. Just keep in mind that your weight gain is not necessarily linear either.
Avatar f tn If either are more than moderately active, calories should/may need to increase to maintain a steady and ultimately healthy body weight. So at only 500-1000 calories if you are even moderately active you should be dropping weight fast. 3000 calories under/over your daily normal limits (as above) is all it takes to lose/gain 1 pound/approx 0.
Avatar n tn You need do a chart for you height and weight and find your own target heart rate by your pulse for your age. Depending on the excersise you do (dishes and vacuming can burn calories) you need to burn more calories than you consume to loose weight. There are alot of websites that will chart it for you. example: if you consume 800 calories a day you need to excercise to burn 1000 calories. This pattern will drop weight. Does that make sense.
367974 tn?1286554758 I am on the straight and narrow though now I have this little angel in me! apparently my ideal weight is 52kg's but I dont want to be that thin id look like a wafer biscuit! i have pcos and i am insulin resistance. i am a relatively strong and fit person though and I eat well.

Avatar f tn I was wondering if my weight changing may be affecting me getting pregnant since my body is trying to reach a new equilibrium.
Avatar f tn My diet is awful. Sometimes I don't eat at all for a couple of days. That's probably why I gain weight so easily. My body latches on and doesn't want to let go. I know what I'm supposed to do. Doing it is another thing altogether. I can start to do something and hours later I still haven't done it. I usually have good intentions, but somewhere along the way I'm sidetracked by something else. My biggest issue is that I get most of my calories from fluids. It is dry here and I do drink a lot.
Avatar n tn I am 5'10 and also considered obese by most charts, but I tend to disperse the weight over my whole body. I think that about 75% of my weight issues are mental and revolve around feeding my emotions (depression/anxiety) and the PCOS/insulin resistance only compounds habits that already existed. I have had to get "real" with myself and seek out other ways to deal with my anxiety and seasonal depression. Working out is that las thing that I would ever want to do, but it does work.
Avatar n tn I have digenerative disc disease and my neirologist just prescribed topamax, he said it would help with the pain and tingling but could result in weight loss. I am wondering if prescribing topamax for ddd is common among neurologists? I can't seem to find any other information related to topamax as a pain med, only information I have is that it's a powerful drug with lots of side effects, most not so good. The weight loss aspect is the only plus...
Avatar f tn Healthy foods can be unhealthy if eaten in the wrong quantities. Do you know how many calories you eat in a day? I really think you should look into your caloric intake and see where you are. Perhaps you're getting too many calories. Fruit is amazing, but you really shouldn't get more than 3 serves in a day as they tend to have a lot of sugar. If you have a lot of higher fat dairy, that's a lot of calories.
Avatar n tn Hello, This year my company offered a 'free health screening' to employees, of which I took part. Tests included some basic blood work, blood pressure checks, height/weight measurement, and body composition testing. None of this was particularly new to me, other than the body fat test, which I never had analyzed before. To give just a summary of the relevant results I received (in compressed form): Subject Age: 52 Height: 5'10" Weight: 218 lbs Body Fat Percentage: 36.
119874 tn?1189759429 5 or so mg per kg of body weight. Generally, I think you want to be over 15. Divide your weight in lbs by 2.2 to get kg. 165/2.2 = 75kg 75kg X 15.5 = 1,162.5 mg or supposing you were taking 800 mg for 165 lbs: 165/2.2 = 75kg 800kg/75kg = 10.6 (quite a bit outside of our 13.3 - 15.
Avatar n tn I came back and within 2 weeks put on 10% of my body weight! Since the weight gain, I have been on a strict low carb diet and exercise only to gain weight! I have been researching like crazy to see what happened. Recently, I searched stomach bacteria and stomach virus because I'm bloated and feel like it has to do with getting sick in Europe. I'm freaking out since I searched stomach virus and found a ton of articles on the "OBESITY VIRUS" which is also called AD-36 or H5N1.
Avatar f tn My biggest fear is gaining an extra 30 pounds while waiting to reset my body’s clock. I am currently overweight at 182 pounds, my ideal body weight is between 120 to 159 pounds with my happy medium at 155. I think those 28 pounds will be difficult to loose as it stands and I’m afraid to go beyond the point of no return by adding on some weight.
Avatar n tn It's the March of Dimes chart on how much weight gain is desirable during pregnancy. I don't see where the doctor got the snide remark, myself. I'm at 30 weeks and have gained 21 lbs. and that hasn't bothered my doctor at all.
Avatar n tn When your input and output balances you do not lose weight and you stabilise. Body is a unique system which has great adaptability. Continue your exercise and weights to lose atleast 500 calories per day and alternatively visit a dietician to design a balanced diet for you with lesser calories required for your age and weight and height. Take care!
Avatar n tn I also weight train 3 days a week. 1 days lower body and two days upper body. My body fat has increased and my pants size has increased. Why can't I lose the weight or at least the body fat? Does anyone have advice for me?
98010 tn?1305903335 If you are exercising more then drink more water - if you don't your body will store fluid to counteract the sweating and salt changes in the body - your weight increase could be fluid.... ideally drink water before during and after your exercise- Muscle weighs more than fat but to make a difference on the scale you need to be building muscle which you do by weight training not aerobic/cardio exercise....
Avatar n tn I know you have done alot of exercise but I still have to ask. You body is not saggy from loosing all this weight in this little time? I wrote down all the carbs, fat, etc...that you were recommended to eat for breakfast for extra energy. I'm wondering if a Slim fast will work the same way for breakfast because I have always had a hard time eating breakfast?
284738 tn?1283110419 Um NO! I can't believe a doctor would tell you this. Even obese women are given the green light to gain 11 to 20 lbs during pregnancy. Infact, if you look over on the Maternal & Child Forum, peekawho just posted the most recent pregnancy weight gain stats/chart. And it says the thing I just wrote about the obese thing. You might want to think about getting another doctor.
Avatar n tn Just because your weight is in an ideal range doesn't mean you are HEALTHY or FIT. A simple chart is NOT enough to determine where you should be as far as your weight. If I may ask, what is your weight?
Avatar f tn While 120lbs is still healthy for your age and frame size, you'll want to compare this to your pre-baby weight. Hormonal changes that happen during the pregnancy make it extremely difficult to achieve your pre-baby weight. As far as the speed of weight loss, 1-2lbs per week is a healthy rate of weight loss - especially for someone like you that isn't too far from "ideal body weight". There isn't anything magical about Insanity or other similar programs.
