Females 5' 1" Healthy Weight Ranges

If you have a small body frame your ideal weight may be:

106 pounds to 118 pounds

If you have a medium size body frame your ideal weight may be:

115 pounds to 129 pounds

If you have a large size body frame your ideal weight may be:

125 pounds to 140 pounds

Larger Breasts & Buttocks Add Healthy Pounds

Do you have a larger bust than the average woman? Depending upon size, you can weigh several pounds more than recommended weight and still be within your healthy weight range.

The same applies to women who are gifted in the buttock area. And if both the breasts and booty are well-endowed, you could weigh ten or more pounds than ideal weight and still be at a healthy weight.

Daily Diet Tips

Breakfast might consist of the following: a serving of whole grain cereal, a slice of whole grain toast, fresh fruit for your cereal bowl and a serving of low fat milk.

Because breakfast is usually void or minimal in vegetables we'll need to boost our intake during lunch and dinner. Therefore, lunch might consist of a large salad containing a lean protein - such as roasted chicken. While cheese is often eliminated from weight loss plans, it can  be a very healthy choice when in its decreased-fat form - and it's a complete protein. Adding a bit of shredded low fat mozzarella cheese to your salad is a healthy 'hat tip' to the dairy food group. Be sure to use low fat dressing on your salad - or served on the side.

Lunch might consist of three ounces of pan-roasted fish, fresh vegetables, a wedge of whole grain cornbread and a serving of 100% fruit or vegetable juice.

Snacks should be filled in with food groups that were lacking during the day. For example, if you didn't consume enough grains, add a grain choice as one of your snacks. Cereal without milk makes a good choice.
