Do You Need To Go On A Diet?

The media today is filled with images of skinny, beautiful women and muscular, handsome men, which can often leave the average person wondering where exactly they fit on the scale of attractiveness. While an individual's features and style certainly contributes to his or her appearance, weight has also become a major factor in determining who is attractive and who is not. By now most people have heard criticisms about the media and Barbie Dolls and bulimic runway models, and most people know, in theory, that these depictions of women and men are false, or at least not the norm; but does this knowledge really matter?

Nevertheless, you probably have a general idea about how healthy you are as an individual and about whether a diet would be appropriate for you or not. Then, if you feel a diet is the right choice, read through information on each diet that you're considering to decide which program you would be most willing to follow and what will likely work best for you.

How much should you weigh?

A rule of thumb is to allow 100 pounds for the first 5 feet of height (for women) and 105 pounds (for men). Then, add 4-6 pounds per inch of height above this base (women), and 5-7 pounds per inch (men). The reason for the difference for men and women is that men’s bodies are typically more muscular—and muscle is heavier. However, the final figure can be adjusted up by as much as 20% or down by 10% to account for an individual’s muscle mass and body type.
