Here is a way of calculating your HSIS weight, based on BMI. I'll use a 5'7" woman as an example

1.Start with your ideal BMI. 22.5 is the normal midpoint
2.Multiply by the square of your height in metres to get HSIS weight in kg. Eg 5'7" is 1.7m (multiply height in inches by 0.0254) so that gives 22.5*1.7*1.7=65 kg
3.Multiply by 2.2 to convert to pounds - 65*2.2=143lb
4.At HSIS weight, a woman will have approx 20% body fat and a man approx 13%. Call this number x. Lean body mass is then (1-x/100)*HSIS. So our hot woman will have (1-.2)*143=114lb LBM
5.Target protein should then be this number in g, ie 114g of protein per day
