The ideal weight calculator takes age into account as well as weight and height. But why is that so important?
The ideal weight
doesn't stay the same all your life. With age it shifts
. Depending upon stage of life a few kilos more or less count as healthy. A larger upheaval begins from about 40 years; in these life years the metabolism often changes. You put on fat pads and gain weight naturally without suffering from obesity
. The result: your normal weight shifts and with it the recommended BMI.
But the opposite can also happen. It is not uncommon for you to lose muscle mass as you get older, which in itself is significantly more than fat. Your body weight will then be correspondingly lower. It can even indicate underweight, although you do not run the risk of losing weight.
If you want to calculate your ideal weight, you should also take a look at this table:
