Ideal Body Weight - A Massive Issue

The ideal body weight, medically speaking, is a range. If you go above or below it, your health could suffer. But most people of the same sex, height, and age, who weigh within the range will have no weight-related health problems. A person with an ideal body weight will have a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9.

Over "weight" by not over "fat"

How do I lose unwanted “lean” mass without effecting my health. I am 183 cm tall; 88.0 cm waist; 122 cm chest; 97.5 cm hips; 19.05 cm wrist. I weigh 95.25 kg but your calculator says I should only weigh 79.83 kg and that I am in fact “overweight”. My body fat is about 15% (both bioimpedence and skin fold measured); which I understand is a very “healthy” percentage. I look fairly “lean” i.e. ribs show; stomach muscles show…etc.

My caloric intake is less than 1,400 calories per day and I am a whole foods plant based only vegan. I already run 96 kilometer per week but my body is not changing much. Maybe a kilogram a month. I do take a daily high quality multi vitamin and my vitals are all good; 117/67 BP and a resting heart rate around 65 BPM. I want optimal health and want to reduce carrying any unnecessary weight.
