Since childhood, you are accustomed to two adages “Health is wealth” and “Sound mind in a sound body”. These are two cardinal truths that amply define what health is all about. Merely being free from disease or infirmity does not reflect your health in totality. Your health should project your functional efficiency defined through the overall condition of your body, mind and spirit.

Sound health is a prerequisite for happiness. While for adults, it is vital for defining your quality of life, for children, it is essential for proper growth, both physically and mentally. An indicative measure of good health in adults is manifest in the height and weight chart, while in children it attains greater importance since it is the benchmark for the overall development of the child.

Height and Weight chart

The two primary parameters that impact your health – your height and weight are co-related using height and weight charts. It sets the standards for you to determine if your height and weight are in harmony, mirroring the state of your health.


Men and women have different biological and physiological configuration, thereby widely differing in muscle composition and mass. Thus you are presented with separate height and weight charts for men and women to help you ascertain how close or far you are to the ideal weight.

Interpretation of the chart

The height and weight chart are meant to help you evaluate the association between the two components. You must correlate the ratio between the two by correctly interpreting your position in the chart. Thus you get three states from the chart.

  • Healthy weight: It means that you are within the defined ratio range.
  • Underweight: You are below the standard defined in the chart. You must seek professional medical help to find the reason and remedy for it.
  • Overweight: Your weight is above the standard for your height. It denotes that you are at risk of several diseases and have to adopt remedial measures for weight loss.

Use of the chart

When you can interpret the ratio, it truly helps to monitor the following:

  • Childhood development and growth.
  • Weight loss
  • Weight gain.
  • Maintaining ideal weight.

Tips to maintain Ideal weight

The efficacy of the height-weight charts is most pronounced in adults as the measurements are standardised as compared to children. For adults, it is less prone to variation, which is crucial in the case of growing children, where it can impact the development of the child.

The deviation in weight is a natural corollary to the modern lifestyle. Unhealthy food habits, sedentary lifestyle and stress, are key contributors to obesity. This, in turn, can lead to a host of illnesses, the risk of which can be drastically reduced when you adopt the following measures:

Adhere to healthy Diet

Eat healthy balanced food and avoid processed food. Ensure that you follow good food habits. Eat small portions often and be satiated rather than being starved.

Embrace active habits

Keep yourself fit and energetic throughout the day by following a daily routine of physical activity that suits your schedule. The idea is to balance the calorie intake with calorie burn.

Adequate Rest

Do not forget the spirit of the adage, which defines a healthy and sound mind in going to bed early and rising early. It keeps the biological clock in order as well as balancing hormone secretion in the body. Enough rest and sound sleep are essential for the body to cope with all the rigours.

Reduce stress

You will feel the easing of stress as you follow healthy food habits, active lifestyle and sleep soundly. You will further feel relaxed as you shun smoking, drinking and excessive intake of caffeine.

Impact of being overweight

It is good to try out the BMI calculator once in a while to keep track of your weight. However, it is not as foolproof as it normally appears. With age, you are bound to lose muscle and bone, thereby fat becoming the important ingredient of your weight. As compared to men, women carry greater fat content. This is a flaw in the BMI tool.

Your BMI might be skewed. So the BMI with conjunction with the following enhances accuracy for your weight management regimen.

Waist-to-hip-ratio (WHR)

Ideally, your waist circumference should measure less than your hips. WHR more than 0.90 in men and 0.85 in women suffer from abdominal obesity.


If your waist circumference is more than half your height, you are obese in the middle.

Body fat percentage

The measure is an indicator of obesity. It is best determined in consultation with your nutritionist and fitness coach.

Body shape and waist

Where you store your body fat is decided by your genes. Normally men accumulate belly fat more than women.

You are now in a better position to appreciate the kind of medical conditions you are likely to invite due to unhealthy weight.

1. Hypertension

Your higher weight is an indicator of high fatty tissue. Accumulation of this fat in your blood vessels increases circulatory resistance. This is the primary cause of high BP.

2. Coronary Heart Ailments

Your fluctuating BP is the root cause that makes you susceptible to coronary heart diseases.

3. Type 2 Diabetes

Obesity results in insulin resistance when your insulin receptors are covered by fat inhibiting glucose uptake.

4. Liver disease

Obesity is closely related to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. (NAFLD).

5. Cancer

Certain types of cancer are known to occur due to obesity. The common factors that trigger cancer consequent to obesity are:

  • Inflammation of the body.
  • Malfunctioning immune system.
  • Skewed cellular growth.

6. Breathlessness

Your body movements are impaired, and thickening of blood vessels will leave you gasping often.


Relying entirely on the height and weight chart to determine what your ideal weight should be, may appear too simplistic. You have not factored in your age, bone, muscle and fat content in your body composition. A realistic Indian height weight chart according to age along with other inputs combining BMI, waist-to-hip-ratio, waist-to-height-ratio and body fat percentage is bound to project a true measure of the ideal weight. Clinical relation to it by a medical professional for determining where you stand in the weight structure shall yield greater dividends.
