Recommended Weight Chart for Men, Highest Healthy Weight

Men & Healthy Body Weight
The following are the highest acceptable figures for healthy weight for men - but that doesn't mean that they are tailored to fit your body as many factors determine what an individual's perfect or ideal weight might be.
We like to base that number as being within the recommended weight charts - but also a number that the individual feels healthy and vibrant at.
Health Notes to Keep in Mind
If you weigh more than the numbers on the data chart below - do not panic.
If you have more muscle mass or are very large boned, you still may be at an acceptable weight.
Answer the following questions might help determine such: Can you view your toes when you stand and gaze down or are they blocked by a belly?
Can you easily put on your shoes and socks - and this is based on a healthy individual without movement issues other than weight.
Are you breathing freely and thinking clearly?
Do you have frequent digestive issues?
Do you get winded when you walk?
While some of these questions point to the state of fitness, they can also point to overweight - and if you are indeed overweight, then it's time to focus on losing those unhealthy pounds rather than on the numbers on the scales.
Take note that there are about 15 pounds within each tier; for example if a man is six feet in height and has a medium frame, his acceptable weight ranges from about 156 to 171 pounds.
Therefore, if you are currently at the upper end of the highest healthiest weight for your height and body frame size, make it your goal to start losing a few pounds. A good rule of thumb is to reside right in the middle of the weight range.
