51 years old. I want to start working out and getting into good physical shape. I’m 6’ and weigh 215 lbs. I typically weigh 185-195. Average build. First time I’ve ever felt fat. Not so much I want to lose the weight, but really feel the need to ‘get in shape ‘ looking for some direction.

Hi... Upper limit or normal body mass index is 25. Your BMI is exactly 25.963, which is not very high and you just fall into the over weight category.

You just require regular walking or hiking if you do not have any other contraindication.

This will keep you fit.

But if getting into shape this your goal, then I suggest getting yourself into a gym under the guidance of professional trainer who will do an excellent job in getting you into shape.

I do not think any dietary restriction is required at this particular point of time for your BMI.

At the same time as a professional I do not see any reason why you should feel yourself as overweight because you are just into that category and not even in the middle limit of our weight category.

"If you need more help, please reply to continue our conversation. If you do not require further assistance, your 5-star rating (this is the only way we professionals get credited for our time and professional effort) at this time is greatly appreciated".

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
