Recommended Weight Chart

This chart is an outline one what you weight should be. Calculate your frame first, then follow the chart to find out what your recommended weight should be. These charts are for men and women ages 25-59.

Metropolitan Life Insurance Company uses the following chart to calculate your frame size:

  1. Extend your arm in front of your body bending your elbow at a ninety degree angle to your body so that your forearm is parallel to your body.
  2. Keep your fingers straight and turn the inside of your wrist towards your body.
  3. Place your thumb and index finger on the two prominent bones on either side of your elbow, then measure the distance between the bones with a tape measure or calipers.
  4. Compare to the chart below. The chart lists elbow measurements for a medium frame - if your measurement is below what is listed than you are a small frame, if it is larger than you are a large frame.
