Is this a normal weight?

Q) Is this a normal weight? I’m 5’4 and I weigh 100lbs, am I under or over weight?
I’m 17 by the way.

A) Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is 17.2, which suggests you are underweight. The normal range is 18.5-24.9 and 21 is generally considered ideal.
However – your age is very important – you may have had a growth phase and your weight hasn’t caught up yet. Keep an eye on it, as you don’t want to undereat while you are still growing and your body is developing.
Eat as much healthy food as you find yourself wanting/needing – lots of meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, pulses, wholegrains, fruit, veg, salad etc and you can’t go far wrong
All the best – Zoe
