How do you know if the weight you’ve been losing has been a healthy amount?

      It all depends on if you needed to lose weight, how long it took you to lose it and how much. Especially when meds are involved!

      You can check your BMI here: https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/educational/lose_wt/BMI/bmicalc.htm If you fall within the healthy range or above and have been losing 1.5 lbs a week or less, then it should be fine.

        @Sunflower.System no don’t use the BMI- if you do research into it it was created by Adolphe Quetelet who was extremely smart but not a doctor and was looking to support his theory that the mathematical mean of a population was the populations ideal. It is more about how you feel, what you eat/ if you feel like you are at a healthy weight. The BMI is extremely toxic and is part of the issue with ED. If the weight loss is because of the meds you are on then I would talk to your doctor

      271, that's a lot. So then I would look at how much you are now and if you feel you are health now

        @Chesbro99 years. But in the past two months I’ve dropped 27lbs due to having sick intestines and stomach.
