There is not really an 'average', there is a healthy weight

range which depends on your build and level of activity. You should

work out your body mass index and see if you fall within this

range. However if you are very athletic/muscular, you may find your

BMI is high because of muscle mass rather than fat. However,

according to the national center for health statistics the average

adult male weighs 189.8 pounds or 86 kilograms.
