http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/ A little, but this is not taking into acct. his amount of muscle. For all I know he is a pile of muscles with no fat. If you decide he is overweight; 1)Get him more active-join sports club, ju-jitsu, whatever. 2)no soda, not even diet. 3)make/eat dinner at home every night. No more fast food. 4)Try to eat meals as a family. 5)Get most of the junk food out of the house-an occasional snack OK. 6)Eat more veggies-increase in fiber/bulk creates a sense of fullness. decrease in calories and high in nutrition. 7)Eat more fruits-within reason. They can add a lot of cals to a diet quickly but still nutritious. 8)See item 1. 9)See item 1.

You are at a very normal weight. There would be no need to lose weight.

No you are not over weight. You actually sound quite thin.
