SUGGESTED WEIGHT GUIDELINES FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH:

Excess body fat taxes our vital organs and is very unhealthy for our bodies. Insurances give less expensive rates to people who are weight height proportionate because they produce fewer expenses in claims for illness. This is a guideline recommended by an insurance company. For a man with a small frame, take 100 pounds for the first five feet then add 6 pounds for every inch over five feet. For a medium frame add 7 pounds for every inch over five feet, for a large frame add 8 pounds for every inch over five feet and for an extra large frame add 9 pounds for every inch over five feet. For a woman take away one pound for each frame size. Thus if you are a woman who is 5'8" and have a medium frame you would weigh 148 to be at optimal weight for your height. As muscle weighs more that fat, people who exercise are going to weigh more than people who do not exercise yet they will look more slender even though they weigh more.

Weighing an extra 10 pounds when it is toned muscle can be a very healthy situation. It is found that those who maintain optimal weights experience better overall health. Keeping the BMI range between 18 – 27% if you are a woman and between 10 - 18% if you are a man has been medically proven to be most healthy for your body as long lean muscles allow good blood flow to get to the vital organs. It may be difficult for a woman to conceive a child if she is below 20 or above 27% on the BMI chart.

A man with a waist of more than 40 inches and a woman with a waist of more than 35 inches are more prone to debilitating health issues and it could be an indication of central obesity, especially if you have a small or medium frame as all that extra weight around the middle taxes the vital organs and is a detriment to good health.



Curious about your own body mass index? Follow this formula to calculate your Body Mass Index.

Body Mass Index Formula

The imperial BMI formula accepts weight measurements in pounds & height measurements in either inches or feet.

The Imperial Formula:
1 foot = 12 inches
inches˛ = inches * inches
( lbs/inches˛)

Table: Imperial BMI Formula

            ( weight in pounds * 703 )
BMI = ______________________
                height in inches˛

EXAMPLE: A person weighing 145 would times their weight by 703 which would be 101,935 then divide that number by their inches squared, which in this case would be 67.5 squared and you get 22.37 as your BMI.
Metric Imperial BMI Formula

The metric BMI formula accepts weight measurements in kilograms & height measurements in either cm's or meters.
1 meter = 100cms
meters˛ = meters * meters ( kg/m˛)

Table: Metric BMI Formula

              weight in kilograms
BMI = __________________
                 height in meters˛

This is the guideline for the body mass index numbers:

Underweight = <18.5
Normal weight = 18.5 - 24.9
Overweight = 25 - 29.9
Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
