How much should a girl weigh?

In order to be able to assess the general physical condition of the body, the human body, in medicine it is customary to single out a number of parameters that are considered optimal for a given period of a person’s life. These indicators include including weight.

Weight rate for girls

Immediately, we note that, in spite of generally accepted standards, body parameters in children, as well as in adolescents and adults, may differ. It is necessary to focus on the average indicators. In addition, when evaluating weight parameters, one must also take into account the height of the child.

The first year of life, the baby should gain about 600-700 g per month. At the same time, the optimal weight for a girl at birth is 3.4 kg.

The following table will explain how much a girl should weigh at a given age.

Child's weight assessment

The above parameters will be peculiar to not every child. To determine how much a girl should weigh at a certain age is simply impossible.

the weightSo, at an early age, many kids eat poorly, which means that their weight will be less than the norm. And girls of 17-18 years old today are extremely scrupulous about their own figure, with an emphasis on harmony. This means that with a growth of 163 cm, a weight of 55 kg may seem redundant to them: a young girl, quite possibly, will want to keep the parameters at least in the region of 51-53 kg. And it will also be fully justified. Or, the child, due to the genetic characteristics of the organism, the structure of the body, will have a weight somewhat higher than the indicated norms, which again should not cause concern to the parents if the permissible coefficient of deviations is not exceeded.

Thus, fluctuations within 6-7% of the figures mentioned above are considered completely healthy. Deviations at the level of 12-14% will talk about a predisposition to fullness or thinness. Deviations of 20-25% already indicate a lack of weight or an excess of it. In this case, it is better to consult a therapist, a nutritionist, in order to normalize the diet and bring the weight to the preferred indicators.

To assess the harmony of weight and height indicators, you can use online calculators. For example, these:

Just keep in mind that the data obtained in the calculation process also do not take into account many nuances, and therefore they should not be taken as the only correct one.
