Ideal weight for men

Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight for men


Avatar m tn Your height should be twice your weight in inches (or more), at least for men. Don't think this emphasis on belly fat was studied in terms of SVR but it couldn't hurt to lose any excess prior to treatment.
Avatar n tn Add me to the total column for men. Been hypo t and on T4 meds. for over 30 years. Learned a lot from this forum including the need to check free T3, to assure the body is converting T4 adequately ( which mine was not). Seems like I have read somewhere that over 20 % of the population has thyroid problems, with women being substantially higher, especially over the age of 35. It was interesting that when the range for TSH was revised downward from .5-5.0 to .3-3.
Avatar n tn Men need more protein. You should be lifting weight more often and for a longer time and lift heavier.
Avatar n tn I want to know if my weight is correct for my age and height. (Male, 54, 5ft 5in, 145 pounds, Asian Indian). I'm a marginal diabetic (excellent control with 1/2 tablet of 1 mg metformin at night). I walk 40-60 min every single day (3.5 mph), do 30 min of pranayama and 30 min of yoga asanas on alternate days and 30 min of dumbbell weight training on the other three days. Yet, my weight won't go down.
228463 tn?1216765121 0) lol) However, we could say we would like to lose x amount of pounds...or we could go by body weight % for the contest so it would be fair because the more you have to lose, the more you can lose, you know? (weight watchers goes in 10% weight loss incraments) I would like to lose 35 pounds, maybe 40... And then I would still not be skinny, but normal and within weight range. Can somone tell the trick-or-treaters to come early to get rid of all this candy in my house?
Avatar f tn I suggest buying a heart rate monitor. Figure your heart rate by this formula, The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone. The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts.
Avatar f tn These exercises are ideal for fast weight gain in men, but women generally gain muscle weight in smaller amounts, depending on body type. If you're a mesomorph, you'll gain muscle weight more quickly than women with endomorph and ectomorph body types. Muscle is denser than fat, so as you gain muscle, your weight increases. The barbell bench press will help you gain weight in your chest by working the pectorals. Lie on a bench press machine and grip the bar at wider than shoulder-width.
Avatar n tn I have struggled with weight all my life. I don't have an answer for you on the weight issue.I did lose 60 pounds on Atkin's but when you go back to regular lifestyle is does all come back. If the men in your life don't like the way you look and knowing you have a thyroid disease I'd say good-bye to them and probably would not be very nice about it. The guy your dating get rid of him. You deserve better. Please don't ever let anyone put you down because you struggle with weight. I am female 41.
1277304 tn?1272937851 Yes, you need to cut calories to lose weight, but you also need exercise. You can't figure that we all need the same amount of calories/day. For some people, 1200 wouldn't even be enough to support basic metabolic needs, for others, it might be too much. You need to calculate your calorie needs based on your current weight, height and activity level to get your BMR, then cut/use calories accordingly.
Avatar m tn 77 gram of daily protein per pound of body weight. That's 139 grams for a 180-pound man. Men who work out 5 or more days a week for an hour or longer need 0.55 gram per pound. And men who work out 3 to 5 days a week for 45 minutes to an hour need 0.45 gram per pound. So a 180-pound guy who works out regularly needs about 80 grams of protein a day. Now, if you're trying to lose weight, protein is still crucial.
Avatar n tn at that point i quit cold turkey(which completely sucked and won't do again). needless to say quitting cold turkey did help with weight loss... i was clean for 4-1/2 to 5 months and in that time i dropped sixty pounds, (without dieting or even trying). eventually i started using again, and like always i am fully dependent again... i have been dependent for about one year and now i'm up to 380 pounds!... just so you know when i quit taking oxy's the first time i was taking six 80mg. tabs a day.
Avatar n tn Did anyone who went back on it continue to lose weight? I was told it didn't work the second time around for weight loss. Also, if I am refilling my prescription after being off it for 2 months, should I titrate up? Thanks.
Avatar n tn But I also remember why my husband and I never used hormone based birth control-- it keeps the weight on, and a woman can expect to gain about five pounds for every year she takes the hormomes. I wish you luck with your current treatment regimen. I know how frustrating it can be when your body gains weight for no apparent reason and refuses to take it off.
Avatar n tn I am on 500 mg and it has done nothing for weight loss. It actually constipated me for the first few days and gave me heartburn and chest pain. I don't know if that is normal or not. My doctor says I am insulin resistant and he thinks this will help me loss weight. Should I ask to increase it? Or is it to soon?
1139187 tn?1355710247 1.6 to 1.8 mcg per kg ideal body weight. It gives this range for most women: 100 to 150 mcg Most men: 125 to 200 mcg Then it states those with severe hypoT require more medication. It also states that a person can receive full replacement dose to start treatment if they're under 60 years old. According to the site's recommendation (written by thyroid specialists), my dose should be 125 - 137 mcg. I am now on 162 mcg.
Avatar f tn I am strictly speaking form a woman's view by the way. No idea about anyrthing for men.
Avatar n tn If this is any encouragement--the person who just by chance--opened my eyes to the cause for my weight gain--said after she was on it for 3 years she put on 30 lbs in 6 months, went off it, and quickly lost 20. I'm so upset for all of us. It's not like our lifestyles/diet have changed--if anything we've gotten healthier in a desperate effort to drop a few!
Avatar f tn Any weight loss aid you have to pay for can only be a scam. Less calorie intake or more burning of calories is the only thing that makes sense and that comes for free. Business can not survive without inventing new needs. Of course the media plays a huge role in this and will aways help to promote certain ideals that we know the majority of people does not meet. So we keep on buying our way into being skinnier, happier, blonder, more fertile, more successful, ageless, you name it.
281219 tn?1219118514 lol - if you are considered super obese - they must consider me nearly dead - I'm nearly six foot tall and quite a bit heavier then you - my obgyn said ideal weight gain for me would only be about fifteen pounds - so far I don't seem to have gained any weight and we'll be at twenty weeks on Wednesday my favorite exercise tips so far - put the remote control between your toes - instant sit ups whenever you need to change the channel weigh yourself when you aren't wearing your contacts/glasse
1050938 tn?1311557178 gaining weight every year, supposedly eating healthier than before, yet in actuality are nowhere near a healthy diet. A lot of introductions to foods have made weight loss nigh on impossible for most. Hydrogenated oils (fats with hydrogen passed through them to make them solid at room temperature and to increase their shelf life), tropical oils (highly saturated fat oils like coconut, cocoa butter oils, and palm oils) and corn syrups (just high concentrations of sugar packed in smaller boxes).
233915 tn?1218816727 If you are eating oatmeal cookies and having red wine this could be the main reason why you aren't losing weight. Sounds like you are eating healthy, but not eating for weight-loss. Wine and oatmeal cookies should be part of the maintaining phase. Once you are down to your ideal weight then you can have a glass or two at night with a couple of cookies, while continuing to eat healthy. Alcohol is a major reason why so many people are overweight.
Avatar m tn For four months, researchers looked for weight loss. The strict low-carb diet caused an average weight loss of 28 pounds; the big-breakfast version cut 23 pounds. However, after eight months, the strict dieters had regained 18 pounds. The big-breakfast eaters continued to drop weight, losing another 16.5 pounds. All told, those on the new diet lost more than 21 percent of their body weight, compared with just 4.5 percent for the low-carb group.
Avatar n tn However, if your ideal weight is less than 120 pounds, don't eat less than 82 g of protein daily. # 2 Ideal Weight (in lb) ÷ 2.2 = Ideal Weight (in kg) # 3 Ideal Weight (in kg) × 1.5 = Daily Protein Goal (in g) Now that you know how much you need, check out these metabolism-boosting protein-packed foods.
Avatar n tn What I have found is that in some people, undiagnosed celiac will cause them to lose weight and for others, they gain weight. If you not familiar with what celiac is, its an allergy to gluten (wheat, barley, rye, etc.). If you have this and eat anything with gluten, you kill off the villi in your intestines which cause you bosy not to absord any nutrients - therefore causing many other health issues.
Avatar dr m tn For obvious reasons, the press and the internet is buzzing with this new finding. For those of you who think that you can lose more weight by continuing to snore, the study authors did note, however, that this does not mean that you can continue snoring away without any sort of treatment. Most people who snore will have some degree of sleep apnea, and this is a serious medical condition.
Avatar m tn Healthy Weight for Men Allow 110 pounds for 5 feet. If you are taller, add an extra 6 pounds per inch. If you are shorter, subtract 6 pounds per inch. The acceptable weight range will be 10 per cent either side of the final figure. Example of Healthy Weight (Men) If you are 5 feet 10 inches, allow yourself 110 pounds plus 10 x 6 pounds. This totals 170 pounds. The healthy weight range for a man of 5 feet 10 inches is therefore approximately 153-187 pounds.
Avatar n tn I was told by my phys. that Lexapro would not cause a weight gain while taking it for slight depression. If it causes weight gain, I need to get off this stuff. Please provide feedback.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
870652 tn?1260323036 I was ttc for almost a year a few years back, and I put on a lot of weight too- I am almost back down to my ideal weight now, after a pregnancy and 18 months!! two month after I decided to throw in the towel and join a gym I was pregnant! :) so I put that membership on hold! that was about 3 years ago now!
Avatar m tn In a study of more than 18,000 men, Harvard scientists discovered that those who had an average of two drinks every day, 5 to 7 days a week, had the lowest risk of heart attack. And researchers at the University of Buffalo found that men who consume that same daily amount have lower levels of abdominal fat than those who drink only once or twice every 2 weeks but down more than four drinks each time. Drink this: Pinot noir.
