Back to School! Here's a mathematical formula (courtesy of

*Dine Out and Lose Weight - The French Guide to Healthy Eating*) to help you calculate your ideal weight (height in cm, weight in Kg).

**For the ladies:**Weight = (Height - 100) - 1/2(Height - 150)

**And for the men:**Weight = (Height - 100) - 1/4(Height - 150)

If only losing weight was as simple as calculating it!

Wow - on that basis I am spot on my ideal weight. Now if I could just redistribute the weight a bit to make my ideal figure........

ReplyDeleteThis can't be right! According to this formula, I'm four stones overweight! I've not weighed 12 stone since I was 12...

ReplyDeleteThat's scary....I'm a long way off and look too thin at my ideal weight. :0(

ReplyDeleteOh gosh I don't understand how to do it!

ReplyDeleteI tried but I ended up with a either 2 or -148 - help!!!

Result! I had to email husband to do the math for me - dreadful admission to make so publicly.

ReplyDeletehowever the formulation is very true and told me what I already knew - I've got to lose 4 kilos!

I'm convinced (convincing myself?) the figure you get from the calculation is the very lightest a person should weigh for that particular height...
