Please see ideal body weight calculators below.

The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better:

*1) Burn more calories then you're consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at http://www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/library/weight/calsburned.htm

Get a diet and fitness calculator that you can put on your computer or cell phone. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities.

Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight:
Adults: http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.htm
Teens/Children: http://www.kidshealth.org/kid/exercise/weight/bmi.html

It is difficult and unhealthy to lose more than one or two pounds per week. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. If you eat 500 fewer calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. If you burn through exercise 500 more calories per day for a week you will lose one pound.

*2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement.

Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water. Read this article for more information on high GL Carbs:

Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Here is an excellent food pyramid that anyone can follow: http://www.rayandterry.com/html/images/PyramidLRG.gif?osCsid=26a424be471d1337e7c2f105d5c64d9d

*3) Exercise on most days by doing cardiovascular training and/or resistance training activities.

Read a book or find a certified trainer to make sure your doing all resistance training exercises correctly. A great book to buy that teaches you the resistance training basics is “Weight Training for Dummies”. A superb magazine to buy with resistance training routines that will not get you bored is "Muscle and Fitness". Signup for the free newsletter. An excellent free online resource is at http://www.exrx.net/

A good book to buy that teaches you the cardiovascular training basics is “Fitness for Dummies”.

*4) Get plenty of sleep. Sleep experts say most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance, health, and safety.

*5) Educate yourself continually on health issues and make a life long commitment to good health. A great free publication is “Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005”. A superb book to read is “You The Owner’s Manual”. An excellent periodic publication is the “Nutrition Action Health Letter”. A reputable test you can take to measure your biological age is at http://realage.com

Look at all areas where you can enhance your health. For example, make improvements in the quality of the air you breathe. Review outdoor air quality forecasts where you live and get an indoor air purifier. Send me an email or yahoo instant message to "gainbetterhealth" if you want an indoor air purifier recommendation and if you have any questions.

The answers presented to your health questions are not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health providers with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.

it definatly depends on the hieght but i think around 120-125

it depnds on ur hieght mayb around 110-140 i dont kno 4 sure tho it rlly depends on ur hieght

Woman who are 5'4" should weigh about 160 pounds or so.

your weight depends on your body type

The average 16 year old girl is overweight...like the average American.

both my girls, 16 & 17 weigh about 110

Your weight depends on your height.
Try this website:


it depends on a lot of things..especially ur height i dunno...130?

around 130 however you have to factor in ,body type,and and body mass, some girls are big boneded and not fat,or some girls have extra muscles and weigh more your doctor should determine what she should wight, oh and by the way the scale used before in the 1980's to measure boys and girls the FDA is revising it due to how may kids being born today weigh more.So it's not accurate.

For every inch over 5 feet a girl should weigh 100 pounds plus 5 pounds - example I am 5"2" - I should weigh 110 pounds. You can always add to this up to another 10 pounds if they are of a petite bone structure, 15 pounds if they are of a medium bone structure, and 20 pounds if they are of a large bone structure - bone structure can be based on the wrist - a wrist that is smaller than 7" is petite, 8" is medium, and 9" is large.

A teen can also allow for the fact that they may still have "baby fat" that has not turned into womanhood yet - but this should not account or more than 5 to 10 pounds and by 16 to 18 should be lost or grown into.

I learned from a doctor that, GENERALLY speaking, the average HEALTHY weight of a woman is 100 pounds for a 5 foot woman, and add 5 pounds for each inch over that. For instance, a healthy 5'6" woman would weigh about 130 lbs, give or take 5 pounds. But this is only a GENERAL scale. More muscular women might weigh more - it all depends on your own unique body. Check with your doctor to find out what is right and healthy for you.

Well my mother happens to have a Encyclopedia and Dictionary of Medicine, Nursing, and Allied Health. In it it gives a table by gender for the ideal weight depending on age and height. I'll put what the table gives for a 16 year old female.

4'10"- 101lb/46kg
4'11"- 103lb/47kg
5'- 108lb/49kg
5'1"- 112lb/51kg
5'2"- 115lb/52kg
5'3"- 117lb/53kg
5'4"- 120lb/54kg
5'5"- 123lb/56kg
5'6"- 125lb//57kg
5'7"- 133lb/60kg
5'8"- 136lb/62kg
5'9"- 138lb/63kg
5'10"- 140lb/64kg
5'11"- 142lb/64kg

5 ft = 65
5.5ft = 70
6ft = 220
6.5ft = 320

See the height weight charts on the web just search for them they'll pop up they give a standard range of weight verses height
based on statistical data.

theres no average weight for a 16 year old
your weight is supposed to be average or normal for your height
not everybody has the same body
you can check out if your weight is normal by using a BMI (body mass index) calculater
heres one: http://www.specialk.com/etools/bmi.shtml

Sexy Ray
Probably about 125 or 130 lbs. But I'm 16 and weigh 116.

when I was 16 I weighed 140 lbs. and I was happy at 5'3" but every body is different and I exercised so I built muscles and stayed active at sports at school. Females are different in every shape and form feel good about you, and I know for a fact that anything under 120 lbs. may be a concern if your my height . Now in my mid twenties(24-27) I am 150lbs. and I gained 6 lbs. muscle and have three children and I am in the best spirits.

gillen s
average is 130 but if ur really tall or really short it can varey if you are the average hieght than 130 is normal


Kari S
I cannot even believe that anyone actually put a number on here. What is your height? What is your bone structure? Do you carry weight in your top or bottom? What is your muscle to fat ratio? What is your BMI? There are so many variables to consider, and I personally do not believe in little charts telling you how much you should weigh. What weight do YOU feel comfortable at? Are you athletic? A couch potato? The big question is ARE YOU HEALTHY? Do you eat healthy? In other words, what is considered average?

2,123,333,333,444,787.231,538,871,324,55... pounds jk about 130

Anywhere between 58 and 76lbs

There is really no way to know how much you should weigh as they figue it out by how tall you are, and at 16 you are still growing. I think you should be at a weight that makes you free good about your self and that your healthy. Heres a site you look at if your interrested
There alot of info here for eating right and staying healthy

Heres another link to that has online calculators that will determin what your avage weight should be.

allso lots more info here

Hope this info helps you out :)
