Have you ever wondered what the ideal weight is for your height? Use our calculator to find out if you’re overweight or underweight. People who are overweight are at increased health risk for diseases including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, osteoarthritis, gallbladder disease, gout, and certain types of cancer. Studies have shown that losing as little as 5-10 percent of your body weight can improve your health. Likewise, being underweight can also lead to health conditions such as anemia, heart problems and chronic fatigue. Use your ideal weight calculation to develop a fitness plan that’s right for your physique. This body weight calculator does not account for pregnant, breastfeeding women, athletes and those with a muscular build, older persons or persons who have loss of muscle mass, and illness.
