Ideal Weight? Does anyone have a goal or target weight??

Recommended Posts

Well, I really don't have a target weight since what I am aiming for now is to be in great shape, just to lower my waist in order for me to have a better figure.

BMI is an outdated formula its ok for the average public but not for people who exercise and have some muscle. It should be banned because it really gives a wrong result for healthy active people. For the average non active person its ok.

BMI is the biggest load of crap ever. All the body builders are obese according to the BMI theory :shock1:

I am 65 Kilos , and exercise every second day, for three hours in the extreme heat..

 

watch what I eat, and avoid Thai Food as it's loaded with Sugar, Salt, or deep fried..

 

62 Would be ideal for me....still a bit to go....

Geez, are you trying to be anorexic or are you small like below 150cm?

 

Ideally for me I'm aiming for around 95kgs while maintaining muscle mass and cutting about 10kgs of fat.

I see comments like this time and time again.  It's clear that some forum members have minimal understanding of healthy body weights.  

 

What is a healthy weight for one person can be an under or over weight for another.  It depends on several factors, including gender, age, muscle mass, body type etc.

 

For example, I am about 170cm tall.  I currently weigh about 63Kg, having lost 10Kg in the past few months.  I still have love handles and a flabby stomach.  I cannot see my ribs, and I don't look like a skeleton.  I have a healthy weight for my body type.

 

I expect to drop several more Kg of fat in the next few months, although my weight will probably stay fairly constant, since my muscle mass is slowly increasing.

 

BTW, one of my ex-wives was 147cm in height (just under your 150cm value).  Her healthy weight was a mere 33Kg (very compact body type, but deadly when she got angry...)

 

Update:

 

Here is a detailed, 'healthy weight' calculator that takes into account several influencing factors, including your lifestyle, exercise etc.

 

According to this calculator, my healthy weight range is 53.6 - 71.8 Kg.

That calculator said my healthy body weight range is: 58.6 to 79.1 kilograms. Holy shitttt, I'd be an anorexic twig at that range! Considering my muscle mass is currently 75kgs that gives me 4.1kgs MAX for bone density, water weight, fat, blood, organs, etc. And that was at the maximum allowable 19% body fat! What a piece of junk these calculators are. Also under "Activity Level" there's nothing that covers off lifting weights, all I see is "(no weight) & (no lifting)".

So what are the values that you're entering into the calculator?

 

Perhaps your idea of 'anorexic' doesn't match that of most other people? :)

19% body fat, which is the maximum allowable body fat that the calculator allows. 178cm height.

 

How can an ideal body weight range for most of the range given be less than your current muscle mass weight of 75kgs? Just doesn't make any logical sense.

What's your weight?  What's your waist and hip measurements?

 

Many of these calculators give erronous values when the person is very athletic, but if you are 178cm height and have 75Kg muscle mass, then it sounds like you have a 'body-builder' body (ie excessive muscle mass).

Certainly don't have a bodybuilder body, still very far from it lol. Weight, nearly 108kgs.

 

In that calculation page I put in a 33% body fat wanting to get to a 19% body fat (It says "Body fat goal must be a number between 1 and 19").

 

Problem is their calculator doesn't take into account muscle mass in their calculations.

There's no such thing as a heathy weight. Tables just give averages based on statistics which are as good as lies for individuals. You can carry lots of fat and be very heathy or be lean and on death's door. I show ribs and abs at 100 kg but I'm no picture of heath and have worse blood test results than the OP with flab. Don't confuse asthetics with health.

I weigh 106kg and should weigh around 90.

 

Is it going to happen? No.

You should weigh around 90K? you must be some height, I always keep my weight on the 77. 5 k mark, and I am 6ft. 185 Ks on my pink ID card.

no doubt that person is either really tall and/or disillusioned about weight in general (extremely common and slightly annoying)

 

I am athletic (not buff, save me the BS) at 191cm, (6 ft 3) ±69kg, 31' waist (Arnold had a 32' waist). 14-15% body fat

I used to be leaner (10-11%), probably around 67kg or so I would see abs again.. definitely not now

 

my dad who is slightly overweight told me one time "you should gain at least 15kg to be healthy" and it was at a time that I couldn't see my abs anymore because I gained 2-3kg..

so, I had a good laugh because he is the same height as me.. I told him "15kg for what? so I could be the same size as you and make you feel better?"

 

oh boy, he didn't like that much, but it made him think.

 

from my experience, most overweight people will tell athletic or thin people that they should gain weight because their view of what "normal" is, is overweight.

every time I see pictures of people that I went to school with back home (Canada), I see 90% of them people are quite a bit overweight. like Facebook pictures of my thin sister with her 9 overweight friends.

 

anyways, from this calculator linked previously:

 

Your weight: 69 kilograms

Healthy body weight range is: 67.3 to 90.9 kilograms

The weight range does not consider your level of fitness.

If you are a lean athlete, your weight goal based on your percent body fat would be a better indicator of what you should weigh.

Very interesting post, though I did think that you should be a certain weight according to your height. I have little fat and little muscle, I was never strong when I was a teenager, just about everyone would beat me at arm wrestling, but when it came to running, I was faster than most other guys in my age group.

 

But take a guy at 185 Cms, he should weigh around 78-80Ks. If a guy is big muscled, no fat, 185 cms tall and weighs about 95 Ks, he is still well overweight no matter how you dress it up, and he is only that weight because of pumping iron, and probably on steroids, as muscle weighs more than fat.

Your a funny guy with a skinny guy complex... overweight is used for fat not muscle. 

 

But now that you explained how everyone could beat you up it all made sense to me.
