What is the ratio of height and weight in women?
Yes, in principle, the normal weight is calculated by a simple formula weight minus one hundred. That is, if a woman's height is 165 centimeters, then her weight should not be more than sixty-five kilograms.
Model, he's the ideal weight for ten pounds less.
That less than this weight - already dystrophy. That is a woman, with the growth of 165 weighing less than 55 a kilo, is no longer healthy. Also obesity is the excess of normal weight by more than ten kilos.
Types of physique (asthenic, normostenic and hypersthenic) can also be determined by determining epigastric angle (the angle between the lower ribs, the angle formed by the crunches of the last ribs). Do this by applying to the corresponding ribs (to the corner) the thumbs:
If the epigastric angle is acute (lt; 90 degrees), then it is an asthenic;
If this angle is equal to 90 degrees (right angle), then the normostenic;
More 90 degrees (obtuse angle) - hypersthenic.
Concerning ratio of height and weight in women, then the ideal weight is the growth minus 110 (for men - this is an increase minus 100).
So with an increase in 160 cm, the ideal weight is the weight equal to 50 kg.
With an increase of 170 cm, the ideal weight is 60 kg.
If the height of a woman / girl is 180 cm, then the ideal weight will be the weight - 70 kg.
The ratio can be determined from the table, just in accordance with the physique, the physiques are of three types:
1) asthenic (fragile) - limbs are long, high metabolism, narrow shoulders.
2) normosthenic (mean) - quot; normalquot; physique, is more common. Slightly prone to fullness, the average metabolism.
3) hypersthenic (dense) - shoulders wide, legs, arms and neck shortened.
Determine the type by analogy in the response
The table is also presented taking into account age. with age, the metabolism slows down. At the age of more than 30 years there is a significant slowdown in metabolic processes. More than 45 years, the metabolism can be clearly slowed down.
