Do you know what your ideal weight should be? In case you don’t, you have come to the perfect place to know that answer. Knowing this answer is crucial if you are planning on dieting anytime soon.
We often find women who are either slim to the bone, or too heavy. The funny thing is that since none of them knows what should be their ideal weight according to their age and body height, both of them think they are on the right track. Both are wrong, and achieving that ideal weight should be everyone’s target.
There are various charts regarding ideal female weight – some are accurate, while others not so much. Some charts don’t even consider one of the most important factors for weight – body shape which affects their accuracy a lot.
Let us get to know the way to interpret this particular weight chart. For the underweight part, it is your GP that can help to find out why you are so.
