How to find my ideal weight?

Wish to know your ideal weight?

Probably you know that there are several formulae available to calculate your ideal weight. Here is a formula using Broca‘s index. This is much simpler to calculate and also reasonably precise.
Ideal weight (kg) = Height (cm) – 100
You need to know only your height to estimate your ideal weight.


If your height is 159 cm, then your ideal weight can be calculated as follows:
Ideal weight = 159 – 100 = 59 kgs
Now you can calculate your ideal weight without much fuss. How about you? Do you maintain your fitness to be in the ideal weight range? Underweight? Obese?
