What is my ideal weight for my age?

The ideal weight is a relatively vague concept because it has no precise definition. From a purely medical point of view, the ideal weight of an individual is that for which the risks induced by his weight (hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, ...) are minimal. This ideal weight does not correspond to a precise weight, but rather to a weight range around an average weight that we will qualify as "theoretical ideal weight". This "theoretical ideal weight" varies from one individual to another depending on his size, sex, age, morphology, muscularity and many other factors.

It is possible to determine a "theoretical ideal weight" for a given population, through statistical studies carried out on a representative sample of this population. This "theoretical ideal weight" then corresponds to the average weight of this population, so it does not really have any value for a different population (for example, the theoretical ideal weight of an Asian-type population is not the same as that of an Anglo-Saxon population).

How do you calculate ideal body weight?

Ideal body weight is computed in men as 50 + (0.91 × [height in centimeters − 152.4]) and in women as 45.5 + (0.91 × [height in centimeters − 152.4]). A simple alternative would be to compute ideal body weight as the weight corresponding to an ideal body mass index of 22 kg/m2.
