Men & Recommended Weight Ranges, Diet & Health Tips

For males who are six feet in height, you have a wide birth of wiggle room for body weight. Keep in mind that the size of your body frame as well as the percentage of muscle mass on your body influences the amount of weight that is ideal for your size. If you have a small body frame you may be comfortable at 152 pounds. If you have an in-between size of skeletal frame - and let's say that you are between the small and medium size, you may be best at 165 pounds. Keep adjusting until you feel your best.

How Many Daily Calories Do You Require?

149 - 160 pounds

If you are an inactive male, 1937 daily calories may be all that your body requires to sustain life, to perform internal processing and the tasks you perform throughout your day.

You will need to walk over 5,000 steps to be considered as minimally active.

If you have an active lifestyle, you may require 2720 daily energy values and at times, even more on days when you are highly active - such as when hiking, playing sports or running.

157 - 170 pounds

In order to maintain these body weights within this range, for the inactive lifestyle it will require about 2041 daily calories.

For those who have an active life, they will need about 2890 or more energy values.

164 - 188 pounds

Inactive: This range of body weight requires about 2132 calories per day.

Active Lifestyle: The active male in this weight range will require as many as 3196 daily calories; if they are extremely active for the day they may require even more energy values to fuel the body.

In Summary

Men who are 6' tall can weigh from 149 to 188 pounds - give or take a few pounds in either direction, and still be considered as within their healthy range of body weight.

In addition they need from 1937 to 3196 or more daily calories to support their body's daily nutritional needs and activity level.

Because body weight as well as the speed of our metabolism differs from individual to individual, these numbers can be adjusted to be more inline with our particular nutritional needs. None are set in stone and SHOULD BE amended as we lose weight. They are intended as a point where we can begin planning our weight loss plan.
