“How Much Should I Weigh For My Age And Height?”
If you want to know the answer to this question, this article will tell you how much you should weight for your age and height.
Renowned great thinker Stephen Covey once remarked, “Seek to Understand, Before Being Understood”. This was one of his infamous 7 Habits of Highly Successful People.
Since we would like to embrace these treasured habits, we shall consider our audience. Why do you ask how much should I weigh for my age and height? Are you grossly obese? Are you way too thin? Is your diet that of the man from Supersize Me?
Life is filled with easy answers that we make difficult. If you eat Mc Donald’s everyday, you’re not healthy even if you look good. If you eat right but never exercise, you have conquered half the battle. If you do everything right, but still wonder if your height and weight are proportionate, you might just be a little self-obsessed.
Yeah, that’s right, we know you. You want to make life difficult. Take something that should be easy (exercise with regularity and eat right) and make it more challenging. Because if you did not do this, you would not be able to obsess about it and that would not be any fun now would it.
Do you know what we’re saying? Seriously, do you? It so happens that we often want answers to questions that we already know the answer to. If you eat a solid daily dose of vegetables, fruits, fibers, etc (see the website eatwell–this site is from England but in spite of that gives great dietary recommendations), and exercise regularly, you will be healthy and you will probably be height/weight proportionate.
Ironically, the people who wonder “How Much Should I Weigh for My Age and Height” are probably the people who already live healthily. The others, those who should be concerned, are at McDonalds. They may even be surfing the Internet right now at McDonalds. But they are not looking to see whether their height is proportionate to their weight, they are ordering a take-a-away pizza so that it will arrive when they get home.
So, on the bright side, if you’re reading this article you are probably already on the right track according to our esteemed logistical skills. But to verify, let’s check some scientific facts.
Height/Weights, Weight/Height Charts
HealthCheck Systems brings you these weight charts which are separated according to men and women.
Additionally, they are broken down into “frame size”. Thus, if your frame size is “large frame”, you can get away with being just a little bit heavier. No, you can’t cheat and say you have a large frame size when you actually have a small one, because that’s cheating and defeats the purpose of why you are here.
A Better Heart/Weight Chart
Here is a quick chart that you can look at to determine How Much Should I Weigh for My Age and Height. The age assumption for this chart is 25-59.
If you’re from the other side of the pond, and want to know your weight on the world scale (rather than lbs as we do in America) refer to the chart below. The beauty of this chart is that it is blatantly honest and spares no one, even the good looking people. It’s assessments are “very fat” “fat” “overweight” “ok” and “underweight”.
So, the best that you are going to get from this chart is that you are “ok”. If you’re not ok, you suck! Could this attribute to self-image problems in England? Perhaps, as each day they reason…”The best thing that I am going to be is ‘ok’, so off to the Pub I go.”
How Much Should I Weigh for My Age and Height: Summary
We always like to sprinkle the questions here at A Rich Idea with a little life thought.
And here is our thought today for people who want to know How Much Should I Weigh for My Age and Height?
Life is filled with so many fun things to do and real questions to be answered. Ironically, we so often ask questions that we already know the answer to. And this is one of them.
Despite what any chart says, you know whether you are living healthy or whether you’re not. You will not find ANY answers in these charts that you do not already know.
If you eat to much McDonalds, you know it. If you hide Snickers bars under your bed, you know it. A chart, no matter the result, does not conceal an unhealthy life.
Eat, drink, and be merry! Stress is much more a killer and obsessing over charts will only kill you sooner (especially the ones where “ok” is the best result).
Eat well. You know how. If not, there are many websites that will tell you how.
Also, you have to exercise, not necessarily hardcore, but just walk wherever you can and try to do some exercises that make you sweat. This will allow you a few more McDonalds visits, an extra pint of beer or two, and let you live a happy, stress-free, life.
And, you will never again have to ask the question How Much Should I Weigh For My Age And Height?
