A man with ideal weight.Most People believe there is only one Ideal Weight Chart and all they have to do is to look up their height in this chart and.... Bingo...This is how much I should weigh.....Wrong!   There are many "Ideal Weight Charts" , but they were never created as ideal weight charts and all had different purposes. Starting in 1871 with Broca's Index which was created by a French Surgeon who was more concerned with people starving to death than obesity. In 1943 the Met Life tables were designed with the idea of insuring healthy people. Metropolitan Life Insurance did not care what these healthy people looked Like.

Look at the table or graph below.  For most people these are the charts you should use. They use the advice of the CDC who have given BMI of between 18. 5 and 24.9 as being normal or healthy weight. 

Here is a pretty chart for those that like some color. It gives the same information as the chart a little further down the page but in a different form.

Body Mass Index Chart with categories for morbid obese, obese, overweight, and healthy.

But even this graph or table is not perfect. As an example short people tend to be stockier and tall people lanky. Also pure math says that weight should increase as a function of the cube and not squared.  The charts based on BMI do not even acknowledge a difference between men and women!  

Do not use these charts for children or if you are very short or very tall.  

I advise you to go beyond "ideal weight charts and look at the discussions in this website of percent fat and body measurements.   In fact as a person gets into better shape,  it is always a good idea to look more at measurements and percent fat than to simply look at the charts.

I have a love hate relationship with "ideal weight charts"  Ideals can point us in the right direction, but can also rob us of our individuality. Check out the video below:

Stay healthy and happy.
