Ruth asks…

How much weight should I lose and how?

I am 5 foot 5 young woman and I weigh 109-110 pounds. My goal is to be healthier. How much weight should I lose? What are some of your best weight loss tips?

Power Health Tips answers:

Health and weight loss do not go hand-in-hand. Yes, if you are overweight, then weight loss can be one step towards better health. In your case, however, you are at the very lowest weight you can be without being underweight. In fact, you are slightly underweight as it is, with a BMI of 18.3.

If your goal is to be healthier, then I will have to advise against losing weight. If you do lose weight, even only a couple pounds, you will actually be damaging your health by causing yourself to be even more underweight.

I don’t think you need any weight loss tips right now. It would be much healthier for you to gain a few pounds than to lose an ounce. If you truly are working to achieve better health, then I recommend you focus on eating three healthy, balanced meals every day, and get in at least thirty minutes of exercise. In addition, if you’re drinking 8 glasses of water per day, you will be well on your way to superb health.

Your weight is already very satisfactory, hopefully you’re aware of that. Be healthy! 🙂
