I would say around 13 stone but it all depends on how much muscle you have.

Lets go for like none, or like average. What I'm trying to say is that its not like I'll be doing weights or anything because I don't want to be muscly or anything.

13 stone?! thats tiny!!

decent size rugby player type will be 15-16 stone and not look fat. can easily get bigger than that and not look/be fat too.

Depends on muscle though, like you say. Could defo look fat at 16 stone if you never did any exercise.

Then around 13 stone.
In BMI terms, that's the upper end of normal

Right, ok thanks. So like 13 stone would just be like typical guy in the street kind of thin? I've just got this image in my head that you'll be fat right up until your 11st 7

Oh I know but 16-17 stone of muscle, like most rugby players, is huge and in my opinion not particularly attractive

11 and a half stone, if you're not muscly. I'm 6 foot, have lost weight and that's about the weight I started looking normal/slim

Yh but the lower your body fat percentage, the thinner you'll look at heavier weights.
So although a 13 stone man of average muscle mass to body fat ratio will look normal, a man who's lean (lower body fat percentage) will look smaller.
But yes, 13 stone will be typical guy in the street thin, especially if you're planning on exercising as well as dieting.

i am 6ft and 13 stone ish. have only been training weights for around 4 months so not muscular yet, but have had compliments saying i look slim. (when i have been wearing clothes, skinny fat)

It depends on your bone structure and natural muscle mass. i reckon atm if i did a proper cut i would get down to around 12 stone and look very lean. But there would probably not be much different visually when i was walking down the street in clothes that weren't tight.

So it depends whether you are after a body that makes you not look fat when wearing clothes, or one that makes you not look fat when on the beach/naked. There is probably about 1-2 stone of weight difference between those two points.

Also you want some muscle, otherwise you will end up looking skinny/scrawny, which is just as bad/worse than being slightly fat.

It depends more on your BF%.

BMI is only useful for the average person who don't workout. It doesn't take in account muscle mass etc.

In conclusion, weight doesn't matter too much, BF is more relevant.

Conversely, your frame does matter. Height is not the only determinant of frame. You're asking a question that none of us can really answer except in the most vague terms, even if muscle mass is discounted completely.

Why do you want to just be thin, out of curiosity? Could you post a picture of your ideal body shape?
