Body weight vs height

Just wondering what the recommended body weight is for a 33 year old 5-11" to 6' male. I'm currently weighing in at 180lbs and wondering if it's an ideal body weight. Thanks.

Well, Your BMI is pretty much right on the normal/overweight line. But really it all depends on your bodyfat. Get that checked.

Re: Body weight vs height

Thanks, I have measured my body fat with one of those handheld devices but I don't believe it's accurate. According to that device, my body fat was 17.5% when I weighed 218lbs (fat not muscle) and now that I'm 38lbs lighter and way leaner it show I'm at 14-15% body fat. What's the least expensive and more accurate way of checking body fat?

Just go see a qualified trainer or nutritionist and have them do it. It isn't that expensive and if they know what they are doing it is pretty accurate.
