Healthy Weight Range for Men & Women
Underweight - Normal Weight - Overweight


Healthy Weight Range
No Precise Healthy Weight
There is no exact definition of healthy body weight - even the healthy bodyweight-range in Table 1, is aimed at Americans only and is based on the Body Mass Index. Point is, no standard healthy weight system is capable of assessing all the weight-related factors that determine a healthy weight. For example, lean body mass and lifestyle factors are not accounted for.

At best, there is only a 'healthy weight range', and even this may not apply to you if you have a higher-than-average degree of lean body mass.

Healthy Weight Range for Men and Women
Despite these drawbacks, the following healthy weight range is accepted as the standard for most Americans. The upper weight-range for each height are for individuals with greater amounts of lean body mass (muscle) and bone, generally men and large-framed women. So if you are in the lower or middle weight-range for your height, don't assume you have a licence to gain weight!

Healthy Weight Range for All Ages
At present, according to official weight guidelines, your healthy weight-range is the same regardless of age. The 10-15 pounds that most people gain in middle age is not considered healthy.

Exceptions to Healthy Weight Range Guidelines
Despite the unisex, all-age-group relevance of these healthy weight guidelines, BMI is not a good predictor of overweight for:

Children and teens, because BMI ranges are based on adult heights.
Competitive athletes and bodybuilders, because heavier muscle weight may skew the results.
Pregnant or nursing women, because they need more fat reserves than usual.
People over 65, because even BMI values of 29 do not appear to be unhealthy at this age, and may even be a useful energy reserve in case of illness.
Thus, in these cases, the healthy weight range figures may not apply.
