What is my Ideal Weight? You may be
shocked!

Excess weight looks bad, It slows you down and can lead to low self esteem. So
nobody wants to be overweight. But your weight affects much more than your outward
appearance. Being over weight is terrible for your health! It is closely tied to many
health problems including heart disease, stroke and diabetes.  

The following formula will help you calculate your maximum healthy weight, not based
on looks but rather on minimizing cardiovascular risk factors that are impacted by your
weight.

Women:  
  • Start at 5 feet and 100 lbs.  
  • For every inch above 5 feet, add 5 lbs.
  • +/- 10% for bone structure or muscle mass (fat does not qualify as big boned).

For example, a woman 5'6" tall would start with 100lbs and add 5 lbs for every inch
above 5 feet.  So, she would add 30 lbs (5lbs *6inches) to 100lbs to get 130 lbs.  If
she has a small frame she must subtract 13 lbs.  If she has a large frame she can add
13 lbs.  So her maximum ideal weight is between 117lbs and 143lbs depending on her
frame.   



Men:  
  • Start at 5 feet and 105 lbs.  
  • For every inch above 5 feet, add 6 lbs.
  • +/- 10% for bone structure or muscle mass (fat does not qualify as big boned).

For example, a man 5'10" tall would start with 105lbs and add 6 lbs for every inch
above 5 feet.  So, he would add 60 lbs (6lbs *10inches) to 105lbs to get 165 lbs.  If he
has a small frame he must subtract 16 lbs.  If he has a large frame he can add 16 lbs.  
So his maximum ideal weight is between 149lbs and 181lbs, depending on frame.   

Frame
If you are fat, that doesn't mean you have a large frame!!!!  Your frame depends on
your lean mass and bone structure. So if you have small wrists, knees and elbows and
you don't have a great deal of muscle mass, you likely have a small frame. Your ideal
weight might be less than that of the average person of your same height. So be
honest with yourself when you do your calculations.

If you weigh more than you calculate for your ideal weight, a healthy weight loss
program may be needed to
reduce your risk of the many weight related
diseases
.  And if you have trouble maintaining your ideal weight, you may have a
damaged metabolism.
