Ideal Weight

I am a 22 year old guy. My height is 180cm and i have a very broad frame. I used to be obese for most of my life weighing around 120 kg. Then i started on a natural weight loss campaign which mostly comprised of running and strict dietary control. I most of my fat and dropped till 84 kg. But after that my weight has started to increase and stands at 93 kgs which is strange as i am on the same diet and run around 20-22 km daily and also go to the gym regularly. According to bmi calculations i am still overweight!! Is this weight gain normal.

Hi welcome - I can see your BMI is 30.39. so you are 6 unit more than normal range (18.5-24.9) ,you are nearly obesity-I not merely over weight. I advice keep more running, free hand exercises, some body fat yoga/poses, skipping, brisk walking etc. Also dietary control like less rice or fried rice,or junk,fast,fried foods, no out side restaurant foods, all home made low calorie foods/meals. better you go for 4 pcs fruits less banana or dry fruits, , no sugar,sweets, only 2-3 tsf (30Ml) cooking oil. preferred Olive Oil or Any PUFA based. More importantly you must be so dynamic , no day sleep, more dynamic work oriented.
