How much should someone weigh for their height?
- It depends on their metabolism, height, frame, as well as other
factors. There are many sites that can calculate this for you,
given you know factors. One site having these calculators, tables
and charts for children is listed below under Related Links.
- There is no perfect weight for a person of a certain height (or
a person of a certain age) because weight is related to
height and body composition. Therefore,
two people of the same height can have different weights. What
counts more than you weight is your percentage of body fat. For
more information, see the page links, further down this page,
listed under Related Questions. One question relates to children
and the other question relates to adults.
