Ideal Weight Chart

Research studies define an “ideal” body weight by giving a range of target weight that is derived from your height and gender. Use the chart below to give you an estimate of your “ideal” body weight range and what researchers consider the healthiest range.

One of the main requirements when determining eligibility for bariatric surgery is you would need to be approximately 100 pounds overweight. Some important factors to keep in mind when considering bariatric surgery: 

  • Your bariatric health specialists will work with you to determine your post-surgery goal weight.
  • Research concludes most patients experience weight loss in the range of 50 to 80 percent of their pre-surgery excess weight.

As an example, if a woman is 5’3” and weighs 320 pounds, her “ideal weight” would fall between 104-127 pounds. Currently, she is approximately 200 pounds above her ideal weight and with weight loss surgery could lose 100 pounds or more.
