First of all, I'm not looking down on you. As a man in 30's, I'm 5'8" and 180 lbs. My body mass index (BMI) is overweight. Lately I've feeling sluggish, so I need to eat less and exercise more.

Weight loss is a difficult process. I don't know what your circumstance is like, but you're a lot younger than I am so there is no excuse not to lose weight.

Keep in mind BMI is heavily flawed as it doesn't factor in the lean mass to body fat percentage. Using BMI many elite athletes would be considered obese. You have to factor in your body fat (target body fat at a level of 10-15% but no lower than 10%), current activity level, and current Kcal intake to determine what kind of diet and exercise plan to follow. In some cases you want to add on only exercise and possibly increase Kcal intake.

At 5'8" 180lbs for a male is actually pretty ideal with a lean body... it would mean a good balance between speed and strength. This of course is from an athletic standpoint but if you want to be healthy why not set a such a high bar for yourself?

Okay, I was wrong not considering body fat percentage. Thank you.
Of course being healthy is very important., but do I need to carry more than 160 lbs when I'm neither athletic nor do heavy lifting at my age? Lately it feels like I'm gaining more body fat and losing muscle mass. So that's why I'm trying to lose weight. So my corrected statement should be eat right and exercise regularly.

Honestly, I don't know if Tomohime-chan is active type. Unless she is like this female heavy weight lifter http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2008/07/30/magazine, carrying extra weight is not good for her in long term in my opinion..

That is unlikely (in reference to Tomohime being a powerlifter) but I would say to you not to give up on yourself too soon... it is true that max heart rate starts to drop off at around 30 but maintaining strength and endurance is still quite possible. Regardless of body weight I have noticed that some of the longer living men tend to maintain their muscle mass even into their 70s and beyond. Muscle mass really does give a huge boost to metabolism and will take some of the burden off of your joints to prevent injury.

I don't mean to refute you or anything I am just saying don't get down so much over your age. Keep fighting to the end ya know?

5'8" and I hover from 135-139 depending on how much I've been eating, sometimes I just don't feel like eating and end up at the 135 mark, but never below it unless I'm sick. I'm surprised my weight varies so little over time myself.

I want to gain weight by adding on a little bit of muscle, but atm school takes priority.
