Height / Weight

This height weight chart is a guideline to your ideal bodyweight, based on body mass index formula.

Because muscle tissue weighs more than fat per volume, this kind of test / chart will give very inacurate figures for leaner people, infact most athletes would be looked upon as being obese.

Body weight is not the best method for establishing your health. Aim to have your body fat measured, by your doctor, health club or personal trainer and work on establishing a healthy body fat percentage.

Unfortuately many people fall into the trap of wanting to be a certain weight for their height, which unfortuately will result in them constantly dieting and losing the healthy (heavier) muscle tissue to achieve their goal.

The true result of this, is often a body shape that has very little tone, with the individual gaining massive amounts of weight when they simple eat normally.

This is due to the fact that the calorie consuming muscle tissue has been lost.

Avoid using height / weight charts, they are both out-dated and very inaccurate.
