I am 5'8", weigh 229. BP is 120/75. I walk 2 1/2 miles in 40 min. 5 x a week. My weight loss is slow. What is a healthy weight for me? 160 seems low.
This is about right
Your height and weight convert to a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 34, which is in the obese category. 160 pounds would be a BMI of 24, which is in the ideal BMI range of 20-25. Exercise will help with weight loss, but you will lose faster if you also follow a low-glycemic index diet (increased protein, reduced sweets and starches). See more »

Is there any easy weight loss that does not involve work out?
Not really
Weight loss requires reducing calories consumed below calories burned. Without exercise this is difficult to maintain, thus the weight tends to return. Start with a short daily walk and progress until you reach 30 minutes of exercise daily. Combined with a low-glycemic index diet this will allow you to steadily lose weight and then maintain it.
