How Much Should I Weigh?

Written by Diet Bites

Two Steps to Determining How Much You Should Weigh

Step 1. Begin by picking your gender.

Male    Female


Once you choose your gender you will be taken either to the page which contains the heights for men or for women. You'll simply choose your correct height.

The Diet Bites page which contains the amounts of weight which might be best suited for your height will also contain a myriad of helpful tips related to body weight.

Body Weight Notes for Women

For example - did you know that if you are female and if you have been blessed in certain areas of the body that you will NATURALLY weigh more and still be within a healthy weight range - even if your recommended weight exceeds the recommendation?

This is one of Diet Bites beefs with recommended weight charts. They tend to be set in stone

Body Weight Notes for Men & Women

If you're male or female and if your body contains more muscle mass than the average individual, you are also going to weight MORE than the recommended weights in most situations. This is due to the weight of muscle mass versus fat mass.

We've never seen an official recommended weight chart which takes this into consideration either.

If you are highly athletic, if you lift weights - even if you walk a lot throughout your day and embrace a highly active lifestyle, you're apt to have significantly more muscle mass than your average active peers. In comparison to the individual who likes to rest on the couch after a long day behind a desk while sitting in a cushy chair - your amount of muscle mass in comparison....well, let's just say that you've hit it out of the park, okay?

How Many Calories Do You Require to Support Body Weight

If you'd like more information on setting your fitness goals, in addition to the amount of calories that you require while dieting, we hope that you find the information posted below helpful. It leads to our Pyramid Diet section at Diet Bites.

This information can assist greatly in establishing a starting point for your weight loss and fitness plan.

What if You Have an Enormous Amount of Body Fat to Lose?

Hey - if you've never visited Diet Bites, let me share my weight loss success story. It happened about twenty years ago. Today, I'm half the woman that I used to be. I lost over 100 pounds in about one year! I've kept if off.

I was fat for most of my adult life - so yeah, I know your internal pain, as well as the physical pain and the emotional anxiety associated with being overweight. Fact is, I was obese - morbidly obese.

I want you to know that you can also get down to your recommended healthy weight. Keep in mind that even if you have been overweight your entire life - at some point you were indeed at your healthy weight. Maybe it was at birth, maybe it was before you reached adulthood or before you reached mid-life - or even later.

Whatever the age, whatever the reasons why you became overweight, I'm here to cheer you on and encourage you to grab onto the healthier side of life- the lighter side of life. There is indeed a leaner you - up at the end of the long and challenging weight loss trail. That leaner you is beckoning you to take that first step....
