Ideal body weight is the optimal weight associated with maximum life expectancy for a given height.

Ideal body weight is a range that tells you whether your weight is in proportion to your height and gender.

**Formula to calculate ideal body weight.**

Ideal weight is calculated differently in men and women due to their differences such as their gender.

**Example:**

Suppose you are asked to calculate the ideal body weight of a man who is 170 cm in height.

Therefore, the ideal body weight is 66.016 Kg.
