How Much You Should Weigh According To Your Age, Body Shape And Height

In recent years, we have seen two extremes among women when weight is considered. Some women dieting excessively and some women taking pride with being excessively heavy. Namely, finding a stable middle is still the best option for any woman.

While there are different types of weight charts out there, but the following chart is different, because it has been created by specialists and doctors. This chart does not support the thin and unhealthy models we see in magazines. This chart estimates the ideal weight according to height, age and body shape.
Age: 20 to 29 years 30 to 39 years 40 to 49 years 50 to 59 years 60 to 69 years
Kilograms 59.8 65.5 67.7 71.7 68.9
Pounds 132 144 149 158 152
These are the “median” (50th percentile) weights, which are very close to-, but not exactly “average”

Ideal body weight is the first step towards good health, since improper management of weight may lead to various diseases.

But which is the best way to determine a healthy weight?

You can calculate your body mass index using BMI calculator, or you can look at your height and weight in the chart below.

Note: This ideal scheme is suitable only for adults. It is not suitable for children or young people under the age of 18.

What is Body Mass Index (BMI)?

Determining an ideal weight is not as simple as looking at height-weight table, but it includes considering the amount of bone, muscle, and fat in your body’s composition.

The amount of fat in your body is the critical measurement. The body mass index is a very good indicator of how much fat you carry in the body. Although it is not a perfect measure, it provides a fairly accurate assessment of how much of your body is composed of fat. Having a BMI higher than 24.9 may mean that you are overweight.
