Health Tools > Results: Desirable Body Weight

Don't be discouraged if your weight is not within this range. The range provides only an estimate based on the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company weight and height tables, in which the "desirable" weight is based on insured people with the longest life spans.

Keep in mind that this weight range does not distinguish between weight from excess fat and weight from muscle. (In fact, for a given volume, muscle weighs more than fat.) Your body composition, as well as where you store excess weight on your body, can provide additional clues as to how healthy your current weight is. Visit our Body Mass Index Calculator and our Waist-Hip Ratio Calculator to assess the health risks associated with your weight.

 

Important Note:The Desirable Body Weight calculator is not applicable to pregnant women, children under the age of 18, and competitive athletes. The tool may not be accurate for women under 4'9" (145 centimeters) or over 5'10" (178 centimeters) in height and for men under 5'1" (155 centimeters) and over 6'3" (190.5 centimeters).
