About This Tool

The Ideal Weight Calculator tool gives you an idea for what an optimal body weight is for you based on your gender and height.

It's important to recognise that everyone's body is different, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. However, by giving a clear target weight range for an equivalent healthy person, the ideal weight calculator helps you in setting realistic health goals and tracking their progress over time.

Five different models are offered:

Devine: The Devine formula estimates ideal body weight based on height and is commonly used to calculate medication dosages.

Robinson: The Robinson formula refines the Devine calculation, offering a slightly different ideal weight estimate tailored by gender and height.

Miller: The Miller formula provides an ideal body weight based on height, often resulting in a slightly lower target weight than other models.

Hamwi: The Hamwi method calculates ideal body weight using a simple formula based on height, often utilized in clinical settings for quick assessments.

BMI: The BMI model calculates ideal weight ranges by assessing body mass index, a ratio of weight to height, to classify underweight, normal weight, overweight, and obesity.
