Use this Ideal Body Weight Calculator to calculate your ideal body weight (IBW) in pounds or kilograms, based on your height and your gender. The calculator employs the most well-known equations to calculate your IBW.

To calculate your ideal body weight using our IBW calculator, complete the following simple steps:

- 1. Choose the measurement system (imperial or metric)
- 2. Select your gender
- 3. Input your height in either feet and inches or centimetres
- 4. Select the IBW equation you would like to use
- 5. Click the "Calculate" button to generate the results.

## Ideal Body Weight Formulas

The equations to compute your ideal body weight (IBW) are listed below:

### The Broca equation

**Women:** IBW [kg] = (height[cm] - 100) - ((height[cm] - 100) × 15%)

**Men:** IBW [kg] = (height[cm] - 100) - ((height[cm] - 100) × 10%)

### The Robinson equation

**Women:** IBW [kg] = 49 kg + 1.7 kg × (height[in] - 60)

**Men:** IBW [kg] = 52 kg + 1.9 kg × (height[in] - 60)

### The Devine equation

**Women:** IBW [kg] = 45.5 kg + 2.3 kg × (height[in] - 60)

**Men:** IBW [kg] = 50 kg + 2.3 kg × (height[in] - 60)

### The Miller equation

**Women:** IBW [kg] = 53.1 kg + 1.36 kg × (height[in] - 60)

**Men:** IBW [kg] = 56.2 kg + 1.41 kg × (height[in] - 60)

### The Hamwi equation

**Women:** IBW [kg] = 45.5 kg + 2.2 kg × (height[in] - 60)

**Men:** IBW [kg] = 48 kg + 2.7 kg × (height[in] - 60)

### The Lemmens equation

**Women, Men:** IBW [kg] = 22 × height[m]^{ 2}

### BMI range equation

IBW_{min} [kg] = (18.5 / 703) × height[in]^{ 2}

IBW_{max} [kg] = (24.9 / 703) × height[in]^{ 2}
