Ideal body weight and height of 3 yrs and one month boy ?

Wide range of normal: With such a wide range of normal at 3 years old, the best resource for determination of "ideal" is your son's pediatrician during a well child exam. Nonetheless, having said that, you may benefit by visiting "www.Cdc.Gov/growthcharts" & select the cdc growth charts for children age 2 years of age & older in the U.S. You will see graphically that a growing normal 3 yr-old boy may vary from 12-20kg. ...Read more

What's the best way to determine the ideal body weight?

Estimate with BMI: No simple tool is perfect, the the bmi does provide a rough estimate.Bmi equals your weight in pounds mulitplied by 703 then divided by the square of your height in inches. 18-25 is ideal, 25-30 is overweight, over 30 is obese and less than 18 is underweight. It is inaccurate in very muscular individuals, where the calculated value will be too high due to muscle mass. ...Read more

You're not a number: "ideal weight" is entertainment and subscience. Your best weight is whatever looks and feels right to you with you doing well at your favorite sports. The last few years' worth of prospective studies have exploded "pop" notions in which body mass index was misapplied. Hit exercise hard, eat sensibly, take charge and be the person and have the body that you know is right for you. ...Read more

No need to: You will recognize your ideal weight, because it's the body weight and habitus that looks and feels right to you while you are doing the fitness activities that you enjoy, keeping up with peers. There's almost no science to the beancounter "ideal weight" tables; most recently the "overweight" people live longer and have less of all the common diseases. You decide what's best. Stay healthy. ...Read more

BMI and body fat: There are two ways. The more traditional way is to calculate your body mass index (check at wellesleymd.Com). Ideal bmi is 22-23, since your height is stable, if you get your weight there, that'll be ideal. What i like more is body fat which is more consistent with being healthy. Get your body fat checked, for male ideal is between 14-18%, female 18-26%. So lose enough fat to get your fat in range. ...Read more

Different formulas: Males: ibw = 50 kg + 2.3 kg for each inch over 5 feet. Thus for you: 50 kg + (2.3 kg x 12 ") = 50 + 27.6 = 77.6 kg (x 2.2 lb/kg) = 170.72 lb. Other formulas will give slightly different results. Try to add muscle instead of fat to maintain a healthy body. If you're overweight, exercise to tone muscle & lose fat. ...Read more
