Ideal weight : Hamwi formula
Men: Ideal Body Weight kilograms) = 48kg + 2.7kg for each inch over 5 feet
Women: Ideal Body Weight (in kilograms) = 45.5kg + 2.2kg for each inch over 5 feet

For range we would need to look at how far actual calculations extend out an extrapolate. See web site to see ranges.

BMR
Metric BMR Formula Women: BMR = 655 + ( 9.6 x weight in kilos ) + ( 1.8 x height in cm ) - ( 4.7 x age in years )
Men: BMR = 66 + ( 13.7 x weight in kilos ) + ( 5 x height in cm ) - ( 6.8 x age in years )
