    Is there a simple way to determine one's healthy weight given height and muscle mass? it's the muscle mass part i'm thinking of most, because there're those body-mass index calculators, but they just consider height, age, and weight, and not muscle mass, which it seems would be significant...

    The books Fit or Fat have a good formula. He does a body mass index. Weight is not everything. When I was younger I worked for a currier company that was contracted with title companies. Well the loan department of most banks is on the second floor. I averaged a stop every two minutes and my route had a major mall in the middle of it. Needless to say I didn't have time to wait on elevators, I ran the stairs. I gained 10 lbs and dropped two dress sizes. Best shape I've ever been in.

    Uhm I agree! Weight is not all.The most important thing is that you have much muscle or you have much fat.One of the standards is that your belly.If you have a fat belly,it can harm you.Does anyone want to ask about this field?Please post your photo and your question,I will answer you,about what your danger is...

    Im so fucking tired of people looking at me as an unathletic, weak, and skinny guy who can just be taken advantage of. I work out every other day, get adequate sleep, eat nutritious foods, and take multivitamins. I'm 16. I have a good height 5"10. But im so SKINNY!!! Is an HGH releaser safe to take just to get a bit of a boost. Not too much, just a very small dosage weekly?

    I've taken Stacker 2 after one weeks. Stacker it to help my weight loss. At first I liked the extra boost but after I've really messed up my stomach. Last months I have lost 10 pounds. I have seen good result in weight loss. I will definitely re order Stacker 2 absolutely wonderful. I'm a huge fan of the products.

    There probably is such index. It would only have to consider one more factor, the gender-dependant percentage of average muscular mass.

    Hey mundant, don't be.

    You, unlike so many people out there, don't have a problem with losing weight. Other people pay thousands of dollars just so they could get rid of a few pounds, whether through exercise or surgical procedures just like Smartlipo.

    At least you can look at it that way.

    I would strongly discourage the use of HGH, outside of strict doctor surpervision. Being 17 myself, I had a weight problem, i was nearly 30 pounds over weight, now I have nearly a six pack. For me putting on weight is to easy, and its people with similar traits that i envied, the fact you could eat anything you wanted. That however is not the point of this post. =) Your best bet is to join a gym, outside of school that has a trainer. Muscle is the only way you will gain weight. The reasoning of why you should not go to a school sanctioned lifting program is that there is too much unnessecary competition that causes a severe drop in the efficiency of your workouts. You are there to gain strength, not show off. It is quite hard to do that if your friends are around. Now after you find a gym, you need to get onto a strict workout regime. You'll gain a good bit of weight through sheer muscle mass. Though there is some bad news, and some good news. The good news is you will eventually fill out and get the muscular build you've always wanted. The bad news is that you won't do so until you are in your 20s, but your metabolism will slow down a bit. So enjoy your dietary freedom, you'll get to where you want to be in just a little bit of time. Hope I didn't make you more depressed. =P Good luck

    ------------


    Now to the point of the topic. I believe there is no real muscle weight index. My reasoning is that the more muscle you have, the denser your bones get to support said muscle. Bone density and growth is stimulated by increased strain put on the bones, as done in weightlifting. The only real concern you have is how much can your joints take. Thats the only limiting factor that i can think of. Hope that helps.

    When I was 23 I finished my Masters Degree and was accepted for officers' training in the Canadian Armed Forces. I was quite fit but ironically was underweight for acceptance. I had to gain 6 pounds over two months before training. I ate more than usual and gained 2 pounds. They weighed us the first time with our shoes off, pockets empty but our pants on. The day of my weigh-in I sewed pennies into the lining of my pants for the extra 4 pounds needed....and thus began my 6 year military career.

    30 years later I'm still not a big eater (no red meat and never pop, fast food, etc.) I've always worked out and remained active. My weight hasn't gone up or down more than 5 pounds in all that time. Here's the secret that you've never heard before:

    Eat less and exercise more!

    Don't cut back on the sodas, cookies, fries, etc....rather NEVER eat them. Don't enter the doors of fast food piggeries...don't eat junk...ever. The porkers who bitch about it being in the genes, etc. have even more reason to go cold turkey on the garbage they stuff in their mouths.

    Hehe, true enough. I went cold turkey and lost 30 pounds as a result. Some people will never gain weight, that may be due to genes, but genes do not make you gain fat. At the end of the day it comes down to what you put in your mouth. You have the final descision, and you need to make the choice. What is more important to you, that candy bar, bag of chips etc.. or being healthy and losing weight. Whichever you choose will effect your life, you get to decide for better or for worse.
