  • MonsterZero is 5 feet 9 inches

    What's my healthy weight range?

    According to the National Institute of Health, 128-169 lbs.

    That's according to the BMI scale, which I find useless. I'm 6 feet, 235 lbs, which puts me square in the grossly overweight, you're about to die category.

    But I mountain bike, run and swim regularly, almost daily.

    My body fat% is 12% (on the low end of normal) my resting heart rate is 60, which is on the border of well-trained athlete and normal, and my blood pressure is also quite normal.

    Don't worry too much about the BMI. Keep an eye on your heart rate and blood pressure, visit your doctor regularly.

    Ugh, I sound like a PSA.

      I am 5'8" and dressed out I run about 215 or so. Muscle weighs more than fat and the last time I was "healthy" on one of those things I had had the flu and double pnemonea and my fatigues were falling off me.

          I think it's impossible to tell what your ideal weight should be. I went to one site and it told me my ideal is 151-189 pounds! A Body Index Measurement site told me that I was perfect. Now, admittedly, the standards are somewhat different for men and women, but still, how does one explain away those kinds of differences?

          Since I don't know any of you in person, I will go ahead and tell all. I am 6'1" and weigh 143 lbs. I'm not an athlete by any wild stretch of the imagination, but I do run 2 miles, three days a week and I dance.

            yep, I'm 6'9" and weigh 105kg (~230 pounds): using BMI I need to be about 125kg(~275lbs) for my perfect weight. No way in hell can I get to that...

            belisama: my fiancee is 5'11" and weighs about the same: she is supposedly supposed to gain weight, but if she does, there's hell to pay...(Also, she is an F cup, which I think means anything to do with ratios is knockd out of whack - guys don;t have that problem)

              Oh i don't know Ivan, some guys are better 'equipped' than others.

              Theres also the short leg factor. I'm heavy for my size even if i was perfectly fit because i have short legs. i'm a bit over 5'10 but when i sit down i'm as tall as a person of about 6'2.

                she is an F cup
                Oh my, she has my undying repsect and sympathy. And yes, it does mess up the so-called ratios considerably. I've never seen a chart that takes that into account.

                    have you ever tried shopping for a F-cup bra? Hell is an understatement...

                    she is actually considering a breast reduction, as she thinks they make her look overweight (F cup not being as perky as it's smaller cousins), and her family has a history of back problems AND breast cancer.

                    might sound wonderful - but all the baggage that comes with them (forking out $100+ per bra is expensive...) certainly detracts from the experience.

                      Wait till you have kids. Personally bigguns look better covered by something (low cut of course)while perkies are better in the flesh.

                      Now where were we? oh yes WARFARE!

                              Women are easy to handle, know their favorite shoe manufacturer and whenever you have to... buy their latest model and surprise her with a little present.
