Even though weight sits on us all differently, there is a way to calculate what your ideal weight should be. Using your height and weight, you can calculate this number, usually called the body mass index (BMI).
For North Americans working with pounds and inches, multiply the number you got from dividing your weight by your squared height by 703 to get your BMI number. U.K. residents should multiply by 6.35 instead of 703. If you are using the metric system, you may skip this step.
