Body Weight Calculations
Body Mass Index
An alternative way of gauging your weight is to calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI). To determine your BMI divide your weight by your height. The normal acceptable range of this measurement is 20.1 to 25.0 for men and 18.7 to 23.8 for women. The only exceptions are athletes and body builders, whose extra muscle may tip their BMI over the normal range.
This is how many calories you need to consume to maintain your current weight. If the goal is to lose weight, 1 pound per week, subtract 500 calories per day from this result.
