Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight vs healthy weight


Avatar f tn i just wanna know what my ideal weight should be. Im 24 years old, 165cm and have quite a heavy bone structure.
Avatar f tn Not just difficulty making changes but also being responsible for the behavior. For example, emotional eating leading to weight gain (and the need for weight loss strategies, etc). I expect there could be medical and social reasons behind the behavior. (Sorry, I'm not deliberately misunderstanding what you wrote. Perhaps I'm too focused on cause and effect and not focused enough on action and responsibility). So the incremental changes should only add to ones quality of life.
Avatar m tn Depending on what your healthy ideal weight is, 15kgs loss could be a good thing! I was 100+ kgs a few years prior to surgery, due to hypo symptoms being undiagnosed. I forced myself to lose weight and was 93 the day of my first surgery and 87kgs at the second surgery 5 months later. Now down to 73 after having put on a few kilos since going back to being hypo. My ideal weight is around 66 kgs. But 10 over is ok.
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 n tn There are quite a few websites about the caloric requirements for weight loss. Figure out your activity level vs. your needed caloric intake. There are actual names for these formulas. One is called the Harris-Benedict Equation Formula. To determine your total daily calorie needs, multiply your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) by a factor of 1.2 for sedentary, by 1.375 for light activity, by 1.55 for moderate activity, by 1.725 for very active, and by 1.9 for extra active.
Avatar n tn Gastritis vs. weight loss Topic Area: Ulcer Forum: The Gastroenterology and Liver Diseases Forum Question Posted By: Eric on Sunday, July 26, 1998 Hi, I'm 26 and have recently been suffering from intermitten abdominal discomfort. It seems to come on more strongly after eating and is generally in the upper left quadrant but will radiate to the middle and even the right side.
Avatar n tn Of course, some people are at a higher risk than others to gain weight due to complicating health issues and/or genetics. Even in that group, many could do better with respect to maintaining a healthy weight. It's obviously much harder when you've got serious physical constraints due to a medical condition, as I can attest, but in the end it's all about calories in vs. calories out. If nothing is physically stopping you from getting healthy, then hell man, do it.
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 Body shape is extremely important since you need to have an appropriate percentage of muscle vs fat and sometimes too skinny it is not an indicator of healthy at all. Having said this I am not saying that you are too skinny since you will need to take other measurements such as waist hip ratio and how much muscle mass you have in proportion to your body.
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.
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.
619345 tn?1310345021 About weight loss well I asked my doctor about losing weight and why cant I start before weight loss it is because the meds in the fridge are based on the weight before I gained weight he said get at least 8 kilos off but if I don't make the mark I will tx anyway with the meds I have made up my mind He said I most likely will not lose weight maybe he is just being him He now calls me Dr.
Avatar n tn So far it's been mainly a sweet craving and more weight gain. Before effexor(aka devil drug) I was a healthy weight. No matter what I do I can't shake this weight. I would really like to know when the weight will come off.
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.
11033969 tn?1416807632 My daughter is considered advanced at 18 months now. She's a formula baby. She's just as healthy, just as smart, and growing just right. With her weight, she's in the 30th percentile. With her height, she's in the 50th percentile. It's beneficial, but I had no urge to do it and I don't regret it. She's perfect.
Avatar m tn Action Points * Explain to patients who ask that this study found pegylated interferon in combination with weight-based dosing of ribavirin is effective at controlling or clearing hepatitis C viral infections. * Explain that untreated HCV infections can lead to fibrosis, cirrhosis, liver failure and the need for transplant. * This study was published as an abstract and presented at a conference.
98010 tn?1305903335 Exercise is intended to keep us healthy and maintain our weight. The best way to lose weight is to be on a healthy diet of no more than 1200 calories a day and hold off on exercising other than the daily activities. Once reaching the goal weight, then start muscle/cardio exercise to start toning up the body and maintain the weight. Here is where many of us get confused.
Avatar n tn I do has gastric portal hypertension based on the endoscopy but no varices. I have been seeing a hepatologist and was involved in the IDEAL study through IU medical. My frustration is that the sxs do not match the tests and the Doctor can't really provide definitive answers to my questions. I appreciate the spin that Jim put on the situation - Is it possible to have all of these sxs and still be F2? Thanks for the input everyone.
Avatar n tn I feel like all the ideal measure on weight and height out there are scewed for people that lift and have large muscle mass. Im concerned Im overweight but not sure if its healthy weight or not? I made an appt for this week to get blood work done to figure out if it is a thyroid or some type of hormonal problem. It was commforting to hear Im not the only one with this type of problem! Thanks for all the info!
Avatar f tn And if its found then something done for the children being born/raised in those situations! And my sister is very healthy, not under or over weight and has WIC. I'd check with your WIC ppl Spike.
1551327 tn?1514049467 My goal is to discover the difference in HEALTHY Bipolar and UNHEALTHY bipolar. The hype and bias of much of the West makes healthy bipolar sound like a delusional oxymoron, that's me. Again, I don't suggest doing what I am doing, I am totally aware that I may be on meds again. I will believe there is such thing as a healthy bipolar, until I prove myself otherwise. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, behold beauty! with or without meds.
Avatar n tn How's treatment going? Are you able to hold your weight on your extremely healthy diet? How about your taste buds? Mine were altered (and still are) from the treatment drugs and many of the healthy foods I liked I can't eat now. Did you find a flax substitute with your riba?
Avatar n tn But now No matter what I eat I have to force it down Its getting really hard. I want to lose weight the Healthy way not by starving my body. Is anyone else having this trouble? I also have very bad Dry mouth.
Avatar m tn I've heard that many people get fever every time they administer peginterferon. I ran a fever of 102F on the first day that I was injected. Never again. What else? Weight loss: baseline 67Kg. Now 58Kg. I see no reason I should be worried. Baseline height 177cm. Still the same ;-) Anything else? Hair-loss! I've lost a little bit, I suppose. I don't know how much, and I don't care.
599170 tn?1300977493 i don't doubt they would prefer to be healthy- who wouldn't? but would they choose not to exist? i agree birth control use is ideal, but no birth control is 100% - so you still need to be prepared for the possibility. it's part of responsible sex.
Avatar n tn My goal with my patients is to end up with a non complicated lifestyle of minimal supplements and increased metabolism and a healthy watch on their own weight for life. No one can stay on Nutrisystem or Herbalife or Ephedra for life, no one should. I get my patients weight down to ideal with specific protocols based on their needs then wean off the supplements if they are on them and go towards a diet tailored to their likes. Eat healthy organic, watch portions and exercise regularly.

Avatar n tn For any members who have not responded or who have relapsed using Pegasys, note that there is the potential to achieve the SVR by possibly using weight-based Peg-Intron (and Riba, of course). I am sure a big believer, and did 18 months of high-dose Peg-Intron. The sides are pretty nasty, but it worked. Here is the link: Regards to all.
1938479 tn?1325709220 If Arnold Schwarzenegger was to use a BMI (weight vs height) chart while bodybuilding, it would have classified him as obese. Another way to look at fat versus muscles is that a cubic inch of muscle will weigh more than a cubic inch of fat. Muscle is about 18 percent more dense than fat. So a better question is am I in shape or do i need to convert more areas of fat to muscle? With that said, here is a weight chart that should only be used to give you an idea, so don't take it as gospel.
