Calculation ideal weight

 

 

 

Method 1
At the first method to account the ideal weight it used length, chest measurement and gender.

What is your gender:

Your body length: :    feet:inches / meters:cm

What is your chest measurement:    inches/cm

This way correct?

Your ideal weight is: lbs or kg

 

Method 2 (Body Mass Index)
This method (other denomination Quetelet-index) gives indication or your weight at your body length is appropriate.Your weight is shared your length in the square. It is well if the outcome lies between 18.5 and 25. Below are you too thin in proportion with your body length. You calculated index is something more than 25 then are you possible something too heavy. Much above 25 are you unhealthy fat. For people above the 60 years the BMI is not the correct method.


Calculation BMI

Your body length: :      feet:inches / meters:cm

What is your weight:   lbs/kg

This way correct?

Your BMI is:

Body Mass Index

 Under 18,5   Too thin.
Between 18,5 and 25   Well.
Something above 25   Probable overweight.
Much above 25   Too heavy.
Above 32   Very fat.
40 or more   Sick fat.


Calculation strive weight

Your body length: :      feet:inches / meters:cm

Which BMI want you reach:   index

This way correct?

Your strive weight is then: lbs or kg



Method 3
If you have not enough time or no sense (or whatever) you can measure only your body length. This third method is less reliable.

Your body length: :      feet:inches / meters:cm

This way correct?

Your ideal weight is: lbs or kg



Method 4 Waist test
Measure with a measuring-line your abdomen scope. For this you must take the waist outline between the bottom rib and
the upper part of the hip. You cannot attract the measuring-line too tightly.
 

Women
Less than 80 cm No risk.
Between 80 and  88 cm Increased risk.
Above the 88 cm Strongly increased risk.

Men
Less than 94 cm   No risk.
Between 94 and 102 cm Increased risk.
Above the 102  cm   Strongly increased risk.

Note
For people over 50, this method is probably a more appropriate method than the Body Mass Index. Overall, the percentage of fat and muscle mass during aging. This means that the body weight at the Body Mass Index calculation reduced pro rata, because muscle is heavier than fat.
