Miller formula: 53.1 kg + 1.36 kg per every inch over 5 feet
Hamwi formula: 45.5 kg + 2.2 kg per every inch over 5 feet
Devine formula: 45.5 kg + 2.3 kg per every inch over 5 feet

Why is this important?

Being a healthy weight has important benefits, not only for how you feel, but also for lowering your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, joint pain and other health conditions. As a general rule, a healthy weight for your height would mean your body mass index (BMI) would be between 20 and 25kg/m². It’s important to remember that your ethnicity, gender and body composition can influence what will be an ideal weight for you. 

Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns about your weight. If you are not yet at your ideal weight, try setting some achievable goals to improve your health risks, with the support of your doctor or other health professional.
