Weight Tables

This height / weight table was developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services. It offers a range of suggested weights for adults based on their height.

Height/weight tables may indicate that a lean, muscular person is "overweight", while a person whose weight is within the "normal" range might actually be carrying around more fatty tissue than is healthy.

Body Mass Index and Waist to Hip Ratios are also reasonable measurements of weight.

A BMI of 25 or less indicates that you are at low risk for heart disease; 30 or higher suggests that you are at moderate to very high risk. BMI, like height/weight charts, does not take into account individual physiques, body fat percentages, etc., but does at least allow for a range of weights.
