Footville, Wisconsin – Experts have come up with a new and easy way to determine one’s general overall health.
Pounds per vertical foot is the new way to measure and judge how near or far a person is from the ideal bodily proportions.
To calculate it, simply take your total weight in pounds and divide that by how many feet tall you are.
For example, for a person weighing 200 pounds and standing 5 feet 10 inches tall, you would divide 200 by 5.83 = 34.3 pounds per vertical foot.
It turns out that 34.3 is just about ideal when it comes to pounds per vertical foot.
Ironically, as I write this, that happens to be exactly my pounds per vertical foot, which makes me feel like I am on track toward being on board the train of healthy living.
What is your pounds per vertical foot? Ask others what theirs is. Share yours with others in the break room. Post yours proudly in your cubicle at work. Help others calculate theirs after gathering their height and weight. It is fun and easy, and the new healthy thing to do!
