Ideal Height and Weight Chart for Men and Women

Are you overweight? Only you can decide exactly what your ideal weight should be. The charts on these pages provide a guide to the weight range you should be aiming for. Let’s see the ideal height and weight chart for men and women.

Remember that a large framed person will weigh considerably more than a smaller framed person of the same height. However, don’t be too quick to attach a big build label to yourself the best test of whether or not you are overweight is honesty and an objective eye.

Broca Index

You may say that this is an old method, but believe me, a lot of health experts use this method to calculate ideal body weight.

Normal Body Weight: Height (in centimeter) – 100 = Normal Body Weight (in kilogram)

For example: Your hight is 180 (cms) – 100 = 80. Your normal body weight is 80 KG

Ideal Body Weight: Nowadays health professionals advise maintaining the ideal body weight. We make some changes in Broca Index to get the ideal body weight.

For men: Height (in centimeter) – 100 – 10% = Ideal Body Weight (in kilogram)

For exampel your height is 180 (cms) – 100 = 80 – 10% (8 KG) = 72 (Kilogram) is your Ideal body weight.

For women: Height (in centimeter) – 100 – 15% = Ideal Body Weight (in kilogram)

For exampel your height is 160 (cms) – 100 = 60 – 15% (9 KG) = 51 (Kilogram) is your Ideal body weight.

Guessing your frame

Women: If your wrist measures 13.5 cm (5 ½ cm) or less, you have a small frame; between 13.5 cm and 16 cm (5 ½ and 6 ¼ in) is a medium frame; 16 cm (6 ¼ in) and over is a large frame.

MenMeasure chest, the width of shoulders, and length of hands and feet.

  • Chest 96 cm (38 in),
  • Shoulders 42.5 cm (17 in),
  • Hands 17.5 cm (7 in),
  • Feet 20 cm (8 in) or less

Would be a small frame

  • Chest 112 cm (44 in),
  • Shoulders 52.5 cm (21 in),
  • Hands 23.5 cm (9 ½ in),
  • Feet 25 cm (10 in) or more

Would be a large frame

Anything between these two sets of measurements would be a medium frame.

The weights and heights given allow for indoor clothing and shoes with 25 mm (1 in) heels for men and 50 mm (2 in) heels for women.

Putting yourself to the test

Stand naked in front of a full-length mirror and ask yourself whether you like what you see, or whether certain areas of your body could be improved.

Measuring fat is not easy, but a simple and fairly accurate way to determine if you’re extra with is really due to heavy bones is the pinch test. Take skin between your thumb and first finger from any of the fat-prone areas just below the shoulder blade, the back of the upper arm, the midriff, and inner things.

If you can pinch more than an inch of skin you can consider yourself overweight and ready to shed that excess fat by cutting down the calories you consume. After all, being too fat simply means that you are taking in more food than your body needs.

Why diet?

Slimming does more than reduce weight and makes you look more attractive: it also makes you healthier. If you are overweight, your body is likely to protest at being asked to bear the extra load.

This protest may take the form of flat feet, aching legs, backache, varicose veins, and hernias. Conditions such as bronchitis, high blood pressure, diabetes, gallstones, and heart disease are also more common in overweight people.
