How much should I weigh?

Weight is not the only measure of healthiness, but a healthy weight range does affect your risk to issues such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, wear and tear on your major joints such as your hips and your knees.  Although it is harder to measure, being in a healthy weight range does affect the way you feel about yourself and mental well-being, which is just as important as your physical well being.

A good overall measure of a healthy weight is a BMI of 22 (Body Mass Index).  This does not take into account your lean muscle mass, which means people with a higher muscle mass are normally meant to be heavier, but is a good indication for most people.

So the healthy weight for people of different heights are:

1) 150cm – 50kg
2) 160cm – 56.5kg
3) 170cm – 64kg
4) 180cm – 72kg
5) 190cm – 80kg
