Should Everyone My Height Weigh the Same Amount?

No. If you look at this average weight chart you can see that people of the same height can range in body weight from 30 to even 60 pounds and still be considered as a healthy.

Several factors apply:

  • The first is bone structure. If you have a smaller frame, your average healthy numbers will be significantly lower than someone of the same height with a large frame. You can usually tell the size of a person's frame by their wrists.

    Thin boney wrists mean a small frame. Wrists too big to reach you fingers around imply a large frame. Every one else would fall in the medium frame category.
  • The other factor that applies is height itself. The taller you are, the more variation there will be in average numbers. This is because a taller person has more bone mass and thus there is a great range due to frame size.



The Ideal Weight for You

This will depend on a number of factors. Once you have determined your height and your frame size, the average weight chart will give you a range of anywhere from 6 pounds to 27 pounds. Why the discrepancy?

Once again, it has to do with overall size. If you are short and small framed, then there is very little to cause a legitimate difference in numbers between you and other men of your size. If you are very tall and have a large frame then your weight may differ a little more significantly from someone else, and yet you may both fall into the healthy category.

I'm Too Small

There are many reasons this could happen. You may need to spend a little more time at the gym or perhaps use protein shakes to supplement your diet.There is nothing wrong with being a little under what the average weight chart specifies for you.

If you are malnourished, however, there may be an underlying medical condition that requires attention.


I'm Too Big

This is common. It's also unhealthy. A good diet and proper exercise are the keys to getting back into the healthiest range for your stature. If you have tried unsuccessfully to lose weight on your own, you may want the help of Herbalife wellness coach or a personal trainer. Contact me for more details.
