To have a real estimate of your ideal weight, nothing can replace a consultation with a doctor or dietician who will offer a personalized analysis. These clues do not replace a medical opinion or your personal appreciation since the main thing is above all to feel fit and good about yourself!.
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).
