How much should I weigh?

The optimal number for the average woman depends on her desired body shape, her muscle mass and bone density. Her ideal weight can vary between 57-68kg depending on these factors.
It's also important to note that there are other factors besides height and sex which determine a person's ideal weight such as how much they eat and how much exercise they get.
