ideal weight calculator

Find out the ideal weight range for your height.

Maintaining a healthy weight is important to help avoid the health risks associated with being underweight, overweight or obese.

There are many formulas for calculating ideal weight – not all of them work equally well for men and women. And they don’t always take into account whether you have a light, medium or heavy-set body frame, so ask your doctor for a weight assessment.
