Weight Guide

Use the weight guide by first measuring your weight on a scaleAs a guide to the healthy weight range, the following table can be consulted, but it should be used in conjunction with other measures such as body mass index, waist-hip ratio and skinfold thickness.

The desirable weight varies with age and body build between the ranges listed below.

A very low body weight is just as undesirable as an excessive one.
