Calculate Your Ideal Body Weight (IBW)

Calculate your ideal weight (Kg) according to gender (male\female) and height (centimeter).

This equation depends on gender because fat and bone rate in the body is associated with some genes which differs from male to female, as well as height since it's direct impact on body mass.



For simplicity sake, we use the following formulas, but there are a number of different formulas used to calculate ideal body weight.

  • MEN: IBW (kgs) = 22 x (height in meters)2

  • WOMEN: IBW (kgs) = 22 x (height in meters - 10cm)2


Note:

  • A person is considered obese if they weigh 30% above their ideal body weight.

  • This Calculator is suitable only for Adults over 18 years of age.
