      There is a correlation (a relationship) between body weight and heart weight: the heavier you are, the heavier your heart will be. This is true both for women and men. But that is not the only factor! Your gender is also important (men’s heart is a bit heavier than women’s), same as your age (the older you are, the heavier it is). Finally, your lifestyle or genetic makeup are also important factors. I am not sure I am correctly answering your question but that is the best I can do…
