*How to find the ideal weight for men and women with a height of 5’11? And how to calculate this number, let’s explore it with me. I guarantee you it will be very interesting. Let’s go.*

Ideal weight for a 5 feet 11 inches height is a great range of weight values in which the numbers are considered appropriate or proportionate for a 5 feet 11 inches height. Usually, the 5 feet 11 inches tall girl accounts for a relatively small number, so their ideal weight is also in the high group compared to the common ground. As for men, it is natural to have a higher ideal weight on average than women.

And you know, ideal weight has been around for a long time. Nevertheless, it is still a commonly used indicator and is always correct when applied. Besides, the calculation of this index is also extremely simple.

Currently, there are many different ways to calculate ideal weight, but all are based on BMI. Basically, BMI helps us to know your body weight status, and from there can have interventions to improve weight to get BMI at a normal level.

You have an ideal weight, and at the same time, your body is balanced in both weight and height. In addition, it even indicates that your health is at a stable level (less likely to suffer from cardiovascular diseases, malnutrition, etc.).

But the number is fixed, and people themselves can change, but the numbers depend on each person. Therefore, you can make your weight ideal and from there, you will have a balanced body that is the most beautiful.

## What Is An Ideal Weight For A 5’11?

The ideal weight for a particular weight number is the weight that corresponds to height, and the person is in a good state of health. Therefore, for a height of 5 feet 11 inches, it will correspond to a definite weight value range. So how much is that value range? I will show you shortly.

As I said above, there are many ways to calculate the ideal weight, but I will guide you in an easy-to-understand and very simple way. Just one data is height, then I base on the correlation between the weight of men and women and stick to BMI, then I will get accurate numbers.

The first is the average ideal weight of both men and women will be calculated using the formula that is:

Average ideal weight = [(Height in cm) – 100] x 9/10 = [180.34 – 100] x 9/10 = 72.306. (kg)

Note: 5 feet 11 inches = 180.34 (cm).

So I have got an average weight for both men and women, and it’s not final yet.

### Calculate the ideal weight for a 5-feet-11-inch male

From the 72.306 (kg) figure above, I added 2.5 kg (about 5 pounds) and got 74.806 kg as normally men are heavier than women, so that average has to be added for males. So now I have the ideal male weight of 74.806 kg (about 165 pounds).

Basically, this number is very popular for people with a height of 5 feet 11 inches, which is also about 1m80. So, if you have such a weight and height ratio, then you are probably a person who knows how to take care of yourself and always has a scientific diet and exercises in moderation.

Nevertheless, if you are 5 feet 11 inches tall but your weight is a little different, then don’t worry because that in itself is a value of around 74.806 kg. For the ideal weight range, I would choose to add and subtract on both sides of the number 74.806, which is 5 pounds.

At this point, I will have an ideal weight value of (69.806; 79.806). Have you ever wondered why there is such a change? Besides, it is simply the difference between the bones that make up the skeleton of each person.

Height (ft – m) | Ideal weight (Ibs – kg) |

5 feet 11 inches or 1m80 | (154 – 176) or (69.806 – 79.806) |

### Calculate the ideal weight for a 5-feet-11-inch female

Just like men, I will start from 72,306 kg, but I will subtract 2 kg and will get the ideal female weight for 5 feet 11 inches height (about 1m80) which is 70,306 kg. For men, I will add, but for women, I will have to subtract because the main weight difference is the plus number of men and the minus number of women only.

The number I just found above (70,306 kg) is already considered the rational weight for women, so if you have the above weight, then I am sure you have a balanced body in both height and weight.

In addition to the ideal weight of 70,306 kg, there is still a certain range of values around it that allows the weights in that range to become ideal, so don’t be impatient and worry. I will show you that value right here. Next, I will add and subtract 5 (kg) from each side of the number 70,306 (kg), so the value will start from 65,306 – 75,306 (kg).

Height (m – ft) | Ideal weight (kg – Ibs) |

1m80 or 5’11 | (65,306 – 75,306) or (144 – 166) |

In fact, the above numbers are just simple calculations. They cannot be completely correct because people are very diverse, colorful, and unpredictable, so the numbers that I have calculated can only be partially correct. For the most accurate view of weight and height, it is still based on many other factors.

### Assess ideal weight based on BMI

In addition to the calculation above to know the ideal weight for a specific height, based on BMI, we can also know the correlation between weight and height. When you calculate BMI, you can immediately know if your weight is within the normal range or if you are obese or maybe too thin.

### So how to calculate BMI?

Actually, BMI calculation is extremely simple, and you just need to know your weight and height and then apply the formula to get the results right away.

BMI calculation formula: BMI = Weight/(Height x Height)

With the unit for weight as a kilogram and height as a meter.

For example, if you are a male with a height of 5 feet 11 inches (about 180 cm) and your weight is 65 kg, then applying the above formula, I can calculate your male BMI = BMI = 65/(1.8035 x 1.8035) = 19.98. Just as simple as that. You can also calculate for yourself right now. Then how to know what your BMI is, please continue to follow me.

Body mass index (BMI) assessment.

Rate rating | BMI for males | BMI for females |

Level of too thin | <20 | < 18 |

Normal level | 20 – 24.9 | 18 – 23 |

The risk of obesity | 25 – 29.9 | 23 – 29.9 |

Level 1 Obesity | 30 – 34.9 | 30 – 34.9 |

Level 2 Obesity | 35 – 39.9 | 35 – 39.9 |

Level 3 Obesity | >40 | >40 |

So, with this BMI table, we can use it to compare with the results we just found. We can conclude that the number 19.98 will be under 20, then your weight is in the thin people.

Find out your BMI and go slowly through that. You will know what your weight is and what changes are needed in the future and come up with a specific method or solution to change the weight so that you reach your ideal weight. As the example above, the male friend needs to eat more to achieve the ideal weight.

### The required age for height is 5’11 in men and women

If you are interested in the weight and height of the population, you probably already know about the average height of the American people. For men, the average height is 5 feet 9 inches (about 1m75), so the number 5 feet 11 inches is higher than 5 feet 9 inches, so you can immediately guess that the appropriate age for 5 feet 11 inches height is between 16 and 18 years old. As for women, the average height is 5 feet 4 inches (about 1m62). You can see that it is much shorter than 5 feet 11 inches, so the suitable age for 5’11 tall women will be from 18 to 19 years old.

Sometimes the truth is not so. There are special cases where people are very tall and can achieve such height very early. For example, the son of former US President Barron Trump was born in 2006, and now he has a height of 1m92, which is terrible. This can also be explained by genetics or abnormal secretion of growth hormones.

## How To Have An Ideal Weight?

Once you have your answer to the weight problem, if your weight is not what you want, is not your ideal weight, and you want to change it, what to do? What kind of diet is good for your health? Diet combined with exercise for the healthiest.

### Scientific standard diet

For people who weigh less than their ideal weight (thin), eating supplements is necessary to gain weight in a short time. You need to add the necessary substances such as fat, protein, and indispensable fiber in it.

Normally, people often eat three meals a day, and you should eat 2 to 3 more meals outside of the main meal time. The simple formula for weight gainers is that the number of calories absorbed minus the calories consumed must be greater than zero, and from there, you can gain weight.

As for the case of overweight and obesity, I have also encountered many such cases. Losing weight by fasting or skipping meals is very difficult. When they are used to eating, skipping a meal or meal makes their stomach aching and uncomfortable. So, in this case, you will need alternatives that are low in fat and protein and need foods that are high in fiber. The formula for weight loss of obese people is the opposite of that of thin people, which is that the number of calories absorbed into the body minus the number of calories consumed must be less than 0.

### Gym workout

In addition to supplementing food for the body every day, each of us needs to exercise the body. There are many different ways of working the body for each person’s purpose, such as bodybuilding, running, soccer, etc.

In general, we need to exercise every day to have resilient health and avoid unwanted diseases. The combination of eating and exercising are two indispensable and inseparable parts. If either one is missing, your body will have problems.

Your goal is to have an ideal weight and a balanced body. You need to strictly follow the principles of eating and exercising properly and monitor your weight every week to realize the difference, and gradually your weight will return to the ideal weight position.
