HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR BODY FRAME SIZE

Don't know your body frame size? Use this quick tip: Your body frame refers to the size of your bones. To test the size of your body frame, try to touch the tips of your right middle index finger and thumb around your left wrist.

If the tips of your fingers OVERLAP=Small Body Frame--If fingers TOUCH= Medium Body Frame--ALMOST Touch or aren't close to touching= Large Body Frame.

Determining frame size using the wrist method: To determine the body frame size, measure the wrist with a tape measure and use the following chart to determine whether the person is small, medium, or large boned.

Wrist circumference is measured at the wrist crease, the area between the wrist bone and the bottom of the hand.

WOMEN: height under 5'2"

medium = wrist size 5.5" to 5.75"
large = wrist size over 5.75"
height 5'2" to 5' 5"
small = wrist size less than 6"
medium = wrist size 6" to 6.25"
large = wrist size over 6.25"
height over 5' 5"
small = wrist size less than 6.25"
medium = wrist size 6.25" to 6.5"
large = wrist size over 6.5"

Ideal Body Weight for Women

These Calorie calculators provide information for weight maintenance and are based on the information you provide, such as; height, weight, age, and activity level.

If you are overweight or underweight the calculation may be high or may be low. You can choose a healthy weight for yourself and use that weight in the calculation.

If your goal is to lose weight, say, 1 pound per week, subtract 500 calories per day from the current daily intake. If your goal is to gain weight, say, 1 pound per week, add 500 calories per day to the current daily intake. Theoretically this works because 1 pound of fat represents 3500 calories (500 calories per day multiplied by 7 days equals 3500 calories). If you have questions regarding your weight and calorie intake, you should visit a registered dietician.

Note: If you are exactly 5 feet or 6 feet tall, place a 0 in the inches box. If you leave the inches box empty, the results will be inaccurate.
