There is no "ideal" bodyweight guidelines that will suit everyone.

There are basic 'health' guidelines for weight. But again, those aren't accurate for everyone.

Women are generally supposed to carry a little more bodyfat than men. So yes, there's differences there.

But when it comes to 'ideal' bodyweight for height, age, and gender, the term 'ideal' is relative.

Ideal for me, based on my own standards, is about 8-10 pounds heavier than what I am. But society's 'ideal' for me is about 20 pounds lighter.

Are you just looking for an assessment as to whether your weight is all right for you??

i would say go by bf%, because you can find a chart that says someone who is 6' 230 lbs is overweight, but what if your 6' 230lb, but with 8% bf.

Because it's difficult to find your body weight percentage, the easiest at home test will be to use your hip to waist ratio.

BTW, the hip to waist ratio is more accurate than BMI.

It's a great idea, Ross, but that doesn't work too well either. It just told me I'm an avocado. I beg to differ! I'm no damned avocado. It's correlating everything to how much fat you have in a isolated area as opposed to bf in general. Problem is, from what I'm reading, I myself would have to get into a unhealthy LOW range of bodyfat in order to reach the ratio they say is less risky. It also doesn't take into account frame size and ratios. No matter what numbers I put in (impossilbe numbers for me to boot) there is no way I could ever reach the "low risk" range they talk about for me.

I think waist to hip ratio has more to do with attractiveness than risk factors.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Well, since I'm between whole inches on my waist size right now, I did 1/2" higher and 1/2" lower to see the difference.

1/2" high, I'm an avocado. 1/2" low, I'm a pear.

Makes no freaking sense to me. Especially since being an 'avocado' means I have excess fat around my waist. BUT I have abs in full view right now.

These things are good for a laugh
