2003882 tn?1327608026 Hi! Ideal weight just does not depend on height. It also depends on your skeletal frame. So for your height the weight can vary between 114-127 pounds for small frame to 124-138 pounds for medium frame to 134-151 pounds for large frame. A slight variation this side or that of these ranges is considered normal. Also the weight range will vary with race, ethnicity, and with the region in which you live. It is important to discuss this with your doctor if you feel you have weight issues. Take care!
Avatar m tn I have searched on line and usually find healthy patients decades older than me with aortic roots at around 2.5-2.8. I know the normal range is from 2.0-3.8 but is 3.0 normal for a 21 year old? Thanks for your time.
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.
230948 tn?1235847929 Thank you for your height and weight. You are within the normal weight for your height. I suggest an intake of 1500 calories to maintain your weight. If you start to gain weight, then bring the calorie level to 1200 calories; however, do not go with any less calories. Less then 1200 calories will bring you into a high risk of becoming malnourished. When anyone is dieting and exercising, measuring your waist is a better indicator of weight loss then the weight scale.
Avatar f tn my height is 5ft 4inc nd my weight is should be my ideal weight according to my height and how much exercise should i do for it and how many times a day???
Avatar m tn A normal body weight for any given height can be different for everyone, depending on their constitution, bone mass, and other factors. Nevertheless, there are a few ways to find out if you are in a "normal/healthy" range: 1. The body mass index ( Based on your data, your BMI appears to be around 29.9, which is generally considered to be very overweight. 2.
Avatar f tn 65 = 91 for the low end your low range and x 85 percent for your 140 x .85 = 119 for the high end high range. *Add the resulting figures to your resting 91 + 46 = 137 heart rate. That will give you the low end 119 + 46 = 165 and the high end of your Target Heart Rate. My target heart rate = 137-165.
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.
Avatar f tn I wasn't over weight when I got pregnant, but I was at the high end for a healthy body mass index for my height. I've been using this pregnancy weight gain estimator tool to make sure I'm on track. 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.
Avatar f tn If you use a BMI scale specifically for your gender than small frame should be at the lower end of this 12kg range and the large framed people should aim for the top of this weight range) Personally I aim for 2.500 calories per day as I struggle to hold onto weight I'm far too thin.but nutritionally I am still fine eating less I just don't like the way I look.
94902 tn?1330483267 i was in really good shape before i got pregnant, so i feel every friggin pound!! ugh. I'm totally jealous of you, Tasia!! I am not huge, but I feel soft everywhere and i feel like i'm bulging out of my clothes. I'm very self-conscious about it (which isn't helping our sex life, lol). We had just been on vacation (that's where we knocked me up) and when we came back from eating all the decadent food, I weighed 142 (I'm 5' 7.
1626068 tn?1303760162 Weight: 63 kg Height: 1.67 m BMI = 63/ (1.67)^2 BMI = 63 / 2.7889 BMI = ~ 22.6 kg/m2 --> Healthy weight To make the inverse calculations: 18.5 = weight / (1.67)^2 weight = 18.5 * 2.7889 Weight (minimum) = 51.6 kg 24.9 = weight / (1.67)^2 weight = 24.9 * 2.7889 Weight (maximum) = 69.44 kg So the healthy weight range for someone with 1.67 m is between 51.6 to 69.44 kg. I hope this helps.
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 The foods and physical activity will very, they are just an ideal of a certain ideal range of meals and exercise I will be TRYING to limit myself to. Thank you for all the suggestions!!!
Avatar f tn a quick answer for extra calories: olive oil, which might lower LDL and raise HDL. You should look at the ratio of HDL to LDL instead of LDL alone. Did you know that roughly 50% of people who have heart attacks have normal LDL levels? Eating a lot of carbs might raise triglycerides, which can be as bad as LDL. Carbs can also raise blood glucose and insulin levels. So you might concentrate on low glycemic carbs. Nothing is hardly ever simple. Is LDL bad?
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.
189192 tn?1261345228 As soon as it was time for him to upgrade into the front facing car seat, I couldn't wait to by a nice light weight stroller. I finally decided on Kooper by Joovy. I am SO IN LOVE with it. It is light, stylish, folds very easily and it reclines. Here is the link to the one I bought ( I love yellow!) And here is the link to the site:
Avatar m tn Males: IBW = 50 kg + 2.3 kg for each inch over 5 feet. Females: IBW = 45.5 kg + 2.3 kg for each inch over 5 feet Your IBW is calculated to be 61.5 kg, so you are currently about 22% below your ideal body weight. In addition, your body mass index (BMI) is 17.6, which is considered underweight. With your height and age, you are in the 5th percentile when plotted on the Growth Curve Chart of the Bayley-Pinneau method. So, by definition, you are not in the short stature category.
Avatar f tn To lose or gain weight, adjust your daily caloric intake according to your ideal body weight. Step 1 Determine what your goal weight should be. Step 2 Perform moderately-intense cardio or aerobic for at least 150 to 300 minutes per week; or when you increase your fitness level, up that to vigorously exercising for 75 to 150 minutes a week. Step 3 Perform two or three strength-training sessions each week. Step 4 Practice yoga.
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?
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.
