Proper Weight

Even a little extra weight puts additional strain on your bones, joints, feet and circulatory system. How much should you weigh? The ideal body weight is one that gives you the greatest life span, health and vitality.

A helpful way of computing your ideal weight is to use a formula called the Body Mass Index. It’s really quite easy. Take your current weight in kilograms and divide by your height in meters squared. Use the charts below to complete the simple formula:

Weight in kilograms ____ divided by height in meters squared ____ = ______

While longevity is a constellation of many factors, those with the longest life spans have a Body Mass Index in the 19-to-25 range.

However, this formula doesn’t work if you’re younger than 18, a competitive athlete or bodybuilder, pregnant or nursing a baby, or elderly living a sedentary lifestyle.

Use these charts to calculate your Body Mass Index:
