Es Gordo? or Esta Gordo? No Gordito No! — 3 Comments

  1. Well this is a rule of thumb that physicians and nutritionists use. In today’s society you’re right it would be difficult for many to meet those numbers. I’m 5’3 and weigh 110 lbs same as my HS weight 40 years ago.

  2. The cardiologist weight calculation:
    For Women: 100 lbs for the first 5 feet and 5 lbs each additional inch. (5’3 woman =115lbs)
    For Men: 106 lbs for the first 5 feet and 6 lbs each additional inch. ( 5’10 man = 166 lbs)

    • That’s interesting. Hadn’t seen those numbers before, just the BMI numbers. Very few people can meet these numbers. I’m 6’3″. So that means my weight should be 196 pounds? Wow. That’s a challenge.
