We all want our figure to correspond to the world standards of beauty. If you decide to take care of yourself and pay attention to your weight, sooner or later the question will arise about the exact numbers of the “ideal”.

Otherwise, we run the risk of escaping from reality, and instead of the ideal weight, strives for some weird standards, exhausting ourselves with diets and searching for a wonderful means of losing weight.

Some can assume that the ideal weight is the one you had when you were 18 years old. But it is worth considering that the energy expenditure of the body decreases with age, and that is why, over time, we gain more and more weight.
