The composition of your body (muscle, bone, and fat) tells a lot more about how much you should weigh than any height-weight chart.
The most important of all is your BMI or Body Mass Index which determines the amount of fat in your body. Of course, the measure might not be the most perfect one out there, but it’s still pretty relevant, and if your BMI exceeds 24.9, then that’s an indicator that you’re overweight.
We all have that perfect number that we’d like to see on the scale, but that doesn’t always mean that our desired weight is right for us. Eating a healthy, balanced diet is the surest way of staying healthy and fit. If you’re unsure about how much you should weight, take a look at the chart below or use a BMI calculator to determine your ideal weight.
Keep in mind that the chart has been designed with grown-up men and women’s measurements in mind, and we do not recommend it for persons who are under 18.
