What is the best way to determine your ideal weight?
There are many contradictory methods presented on the web about what weight is healthiest for what height and what sex you are. For example, I am 6′ 1″ and according to the median score on a BMI calculator I found from the CDC, the median BMI for “normal weight” is 21.7. In order for me to get down to that BMI score, I would have to weigh 164.5 pounds. I am 200 pounds right now, and look and feel slender. Is it really necessary for me to lose 36 pounds to be healthy? What insights do you all have?
BMI’s do not take into account the fact that some people are muscular. I’m 220 lbs and technically severely obese according to the BMI, but I lift weights vigorously and people assume by looking at me that I cannot weigh more than 180 lbs. Find your body fat percent and that will tell you if you’re overweight. I believe that anything more than 20% is obese in males.
Why dont i have decent six packs even though i am skinny?
I am skinny male I weigh 8 stone 8 pounds and I am 5ft 5″ and on the BMI calculator it says im on good weight and on body fat calculator it says that I have 13% body fat. I had started abs training around 2 months ago my abs are visible but does not look that good as it is covered a bit body fat. I thought people <16% have six packs mine is visible but does not look good can anyone give me tips?
For an accurate BMI get yourself weighed on a set of tenita scales, as it segments your body to give accurate readings.
You can be skinny, yet have a considerable amount of fat on you which will conceal your abs.
Eat one gram of protein per pound of body mass every day, low down on the carbs and fat and exercise.
For flat marathon runner abs do a couple bodyweight abs circuits each day of the week (e.g, 50 crunches followed by 20 v-sits) or for big rigged abs, do intense workouts with noticeably heavy weights roughly with 80% of your 1-rep-maximum and do 8 reps of crunches, then drop the weight and repeat.

BMI Calculator that takes breast size into consideration?
Do you know if there is a BMI calculator that takes breast size and your body frame into consideration?
I believe it is needed as when 10lbs could possibly be contributed to breasts that can put you over the edge. BMI calculators I’ve found say I should be a certain weight, but I don’t think that is healthy considering my breast size. There needs to be something that takes all factors into consideration.
No, there isnt. You said “There needs to be something that takes all factors into consideration.” well, the BMI is just a guideline. It by no means is a statement of your health. Everyone is different. I mean, i could weigh the same and be as tall as another male, but what if hes 3% fat and im 9% fat? Well obviously i would be in the right bmi number, but i wouldnt be as healthy as the other guy. If your bmi is above what it “says it should be”, dont worry. It doesnt mean youre unhealthy.
Is there a non-expensive way to help my health?
First off, I am underweight – I literally look like a walking skeleton. I am 31 years old, male and BMI is 16.7 (very underweight according to internet BMI calculators). Need advice as to where to go and how to get my body to a healthy weight without spending too much money. I have no appetite and when I eat, I feel sick after-wards (hence the no appetite).
To Prof – I’m planning on going to see someone about this on Monday
Have you seen a physician? Have you been checked for internal bleeding or anemia? The “no appetite” and “feel sick” after eating is NOT GOOD. Might indicate an ulcer or WORSE.
How much exercise is too much for an average fifteen year old male?
How long per day should the average fifteen year old male exercise each day and what type of exercises? Also what is the maximum amount of physical activity they should do per day?
Adventure runners can train on fifty miles a day. Team athletes run more than six miles every day. If you are exercising more than twelve hours per day, you may be getting near your physical limitations. Unless your entire waking time is exercising, you are not damaging your body much. However, sitting around watching television or using your computer could prematurely kill you.
Check a BMI calculator to determine how much weight you need to lose to be “normal.”
You should find exercise that fits into your daily routine, like walking to school, bicycling to the grocery store, and hiking through a local park. Try to perform these moderate exercise activities for at least an hour every day. Eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are both filling and filled with the nutrients that your body needs.
Check a BMI calculator to set your weight goal. Your BMI should be between 19 and 25.
