WHAT SHOULD MY "IDEAL" WEIGHT BE?
57 year old 5' 2" guy, weighing 229 pounds.....
- if -
I know that my Weight of Body Fat is 82.89999 lb's
(36.2% Body Fat Percentage)
- and -
I know my Lean Body Mass was 146.1 lb's
(63.8% Lean Body Mass Percentage)
I'm thinking that the above weights & measures would provide a better clue of what my weight should be if my BODY FAT PERCENTAGE were in the healthy 17% range. Certainly a guesstimation based on the above information would be better than old (or "updated") BMI tables.
Can ANYBODY give me an idea of what weight a big boned, short fat white boy with large joints should weigh if I got down to a mere 17% body fat???
I thought maybe I could figure it out, but there may be other factors of which I am unaware. Ferinstance, I doubt seriously I could maintain 146 lb's of lean body mass in my attempt to lose 80 to 100 pounds from the above mentioned 229 pounds.
