    Height Weight Charts

    Height Weight Charts are a popular body composition test used to determine one’s ideal weight.Height Weight Chart Below are the standard weight charts for men and women based on height in inches. The ideal weight depends also on one’s build or frame.
     
    Please note that many health practitioners consider the Height Weight Chart outdated or inadequate. Your doctor might use the BMI or Body Mass Index instead. But in principle, BMI does the same thing as these charts: it only tells you how much weight is distributed over your height. Another body composition test is the Waist Hip Ratio. None of these is a perfect indicator of healthy or unhealthy weight.
     
    The important thing to know is whether most of your weight is made up of muscle or fat. If you’re overweight according to a Height Weight Chart or BMI, but very muscular, you’re probably okay. But a person weighing the same of you, with lots of fat and no muscle, is a candidate for heart disease.
     
    Keep in mind also that there are many types of Body Composition Tests besides those named above. These include Skinfold Measurement, Hydrostatic Weighing, Total Body Protein (TBP), Computed Tornography (CT), Total Body Electrical Conductivity (TOBEC), Near Infrared Interactance, Bio-electric Impedance, Total Body Potassium (TBK), Magnetic Resource Imaging (MRI) and more.

    When attempting to lose weight, don’t be too ambitious and aim for the low end at once. Go for the farthest end on the right. Only when you’ve worked your way down that level should you adjust according to your body build. Losing too much weight too soon can lead to many health problems, just like being overweight. Note also that there are similar Height Weight Charts for children and infants. But these are unreliable and should be used with caution.
