# Ideal weight 172 cm male

Compute your ideal weight for height in pounds, stones and pounds and also in kilograms. This calculator computes appropriately your ideal or healthy weight based on BMI information^{[1]}. It also shows results using other (outdated) methods. This calculator applies for people of more than 16 years old men or women.

## Other methods to calculate IBW

### According to the formula of Devine (1974)

67.7 kilograms or 149.4 pounds.

#### Formulas:

- Man: IBW = 50 + 2.3(h - 60)
- Woman: IBW = 45.5 + 2.3(h - 60)

Note 1: Valid for age greater than 18 years old and height (h) between 140 and 220 cm

Note 2: height is in inches.

### According to the formula of Lorentz (1929)

66.5 kilograms.

#### Formulas:

- For men: IBW = (h − 100) − ((h − 150)/4)
- For women: IBW = (h − 100) − ((h − 150)/2)

Note: height (h) is in cm.

### According to the formula of Lorentz (accounting for age)

56.8 kilograms.

#### Formula:

- IBW = 50 + (h - 150)/4 + (a - 20)/4

Note: height (h) is in centimeters and age (a) in years.

### According to the formula of Peck's (1974)

65.5 kilograms.

#### Formulas:

- Man (18 more than years old): IBW = -130.736 + (4.064 * h)
- Woman (18 more than 18 years old): IBW = -111.621 + (3.636 * h)
- Boy (18 years old or less): IBW = -59.6035 + (5.2878 * h) - (0.123939 * h
^{2}) + (0.00128936 * h^{3}) - Girl (18 years old or less): IBW = -77.55796 + (6.93728 * h) - (0.171703 * h
^{2}) + (0.001726 * h^{3})

Note: height (h) is in inches and ranges from 17 to 86 inches (45 to 220 cm)
