The ideal weight calculates to in between 63 and 67 kg. Keeping this weight will ensure that you will not experience any serious health problems that could be a result of either being too over or underweight. Calculating your ideal weight can easily be done if you search on the Internet for a BMI calculator; this will also tell you what your BMI number is and where it is on the scale of healthy weight.

BMI (body mass index) numbers are there to help us know what our weight should be. All of us, regardless of our age, have ideal BMI numbers that we should be able to maintain. Once you know what yours should be, it is important to ensure that we are not exceeding it by extreme amounts as this could result in health problems.

Weight is becoming very important in today’s society. In medical research and science, such problems are the direct instigator for health issues and many diseases. Living in a world where we are surrounded by images of both underweight and overweight celebrities, we are becoming very careless when it comes to what we should and should not be eating, which is seriously affecting our BMI numbers and giving us delusional ideas that we can be whatever weight we can and be safe from any health problems.

Maintaining the ideal weight of around 65 kg is going to prevent you from getting any health problems in the future that could put your life in danger or result in permanent medical conditions that you could have for the rest of your life.

After 18 years of age the standard for age, weight and height is changed. Up to 18 years, all three parameters are taken in to consideration. After 18 years of age, only height and weight are measured. A man of 5 ft. And 6 inch. Should weight 62.14 -66.68 Kg or 137 – 147 lb with shoes.

Try this ideal weight calculator, based on age, gender and height. It
gives you the per cent of people heavier than you, too. And shows you .This BMI calculator helps you to calculate your body mass index instantly.
go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on your
initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your diet is
still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to calculate points or to buy special meals or plans.

Most reputable health sites will not give an "ideal" weight for a height, because multiple factors can change it. For instance, a man with lots of muscle mass but little excess fat might have a body mass index (the height:weight ratio used by doctors) that shows he is overweight, because muscle is relatively heavy. Similarly, someone with a large bone structure is going be able to weigh more than someone with a light bone structure and still be healthy. Thus, doctors will give a healthy *range* of weights/BMI. I recmonded you BMI Calculator  through this you get more results about Body Fat Percentage .
