Ideal Weight Tables For A Healthy Weight

ideal-weight

These ideal weight tables are a guide to the optimal weight range for a person between the ages of 20-25, depending on gender, height and body frame size. Remember that body composition (i.e. percentage of fat, bone and muscle) affects weight. So for example,
if you are a very athletic or muscular person, you may weigh more than a person with the same height and body frame size who is less active.

The ideal weight charts below reflect weight including indoor clothing. The first step is to find out what your body frame size is by measuring your wrist.

Body Frame Size

The size of your wrist is a good indicator of your body frame size as wrists do not change size with weight, unless you are very obese.

  1. Measure your wrist circumference
  2. Use one of the tables below to determine your body frame size
  3. Once you know your body frame size, look up your optimal weight in the ideal weight tables for your gender. You will need to know your height as well.
