Calculate Ideal Weight

The ideal weight can be calculated, for example, based on the BMI formula and is a common tool for deciding what the ideal weight is based on your gender and height. Foodpal's Ideal Weight Calculator measures your ideal weight in relation to your age and height. Enter your gender, age and height and find out now for free what ideal weight is calculated for you.

To calculate your ideal weight based on the BMI formula, we need the following information:


  • Weiblich
  • Männlich






Important notes

Most ideal body weight calculators are based on simple measurements of height and age. However, recent research suggests that health may not correlate directly with weight, but with the perception of one's weight. Those who are happy with their weight tend to be healthier than those who are unhappy with themselves. Even our society's definitions of what is overweight are often challenged.

Please note that this calculator is only a very general estimate of the ideal weight.

This type of measurement does not take into account:
  • Bone density
  • Muscle mass
  • Fat percentage
  • Ethnicity
A better measure is body fat percentage.

An ideal body fat percentage for women would be 16-20% and 10-14% for men.

Is this an accurate measurement?

This calculator estimates your ideal weight range based on the BMI formula. Therefore, these measurements are very general.

As mentioned above, this type of calculation does not take into account individual differences. Your ideal weight is the one you feel healthiest at, not based on a general calculation.
