Ideal Body Weight
Note that in any case to avoid health problems related with weight, you must not be heavier than your waist to height ratio permits: always keep your waist circumference to less than half your height. For example, if you are 170 cm tall, your waist should be less than 85 cm. This is valid for men and women alike.
