The Million-Dollar question – what’s the ideal weight for a woman? Well, ladies and gentlemen, we can answer that question for you. Just take a look at the article below and find out more about this.
I really think that we have seen extremes on both ends of the spectrum – some women dieting down to skin and bone and other women taking pride with being excessively heavy – it turns out finding a stable middle ground which is optimal in comparison to one’s height, muscle and bone mass, is indeed ideal.
Note: there are different types of weight charts out there! But, this one has been created by specialists and takes into account a woman’s body type. Many other weight charts have a “one size fits all” model which completely ignores the fact that women of the same height have different body frames.
This chart does not support the notion that the overly thin models we see in magazines have healthy weight. The chart takes into effect height, and most importantly, body shape. And, it’s very simple – just check out the chart and see where you stand and what your ideal weight should be.
WHAT IS BODY MASS INDEX (BMI)?
Here’s what you need to know – well, the experts say that determining how much you should weigh is not as simple as looking at a height-weight chart, but it includes considering the amount of bone, muscle, and fat in your body’s composition.
The most important thing you need to consider is the amount of fat in your body and the BMI calculator is the perfect way to discover the percentage of fat your body is consisted of. It may not be the perfect measure but it gives a pretty good estimate. If your BMI is higher than 24.9 you may be overweight.
