Healthy Weight Calculator


Calculate Your Healthy Weight

Use this calculator to find a weight that is healthy for you.

Enter your height in feet and inches, then click CALCULATE.

Note: If are above the healthy weight range, see your doctor to work out a program to help you reach a healthy weight. If you fall below the healthy weight range, or are losing weight unintentionally, see your doctor to make sure you don't have any health problems. If you fall within the healthy weight range, that's great! You should still watch what you eat and get regular exercise.

How is your healthy weight calculated?

Your healthy weight is based on your Body Mass Index (BMI). Doctors often use BMI to determine if a person is underweight, at a healthy weight or is overweight. This weight is shown in a general range from minimum to maximum pounds.

The calculator is for adults and is provided for your information only. It is not a substitute for professional medical advice, and may not represent your true individual medical situation. It does not take all possible factors into account in its assessment of your healthy weight or body type. This calculator does not apply to pregnant women. Do not use this information to make significant changes in your diet, exercise regimen, or other aspects of your lifestyle without consulting your personal physician or other qualified health care provider. Please contact your physician if you have any questions or concerns.
