How Much Should I Weigh If I'm 5 Feet Tall?

Updated July 19, 2017

If you are a 5 foot tall female, your weight should rest somewhere between 46.7 and 62.1kg., with a target weight of approximately 54.4kg.

Range for Males

If you are a 5 foot tall man, your target weight should be around 60.3kg., though anywhere within the range of 55.3 to 65.3kg. is average.

Bottom Line

While using height to determine a healthy weight is a helpful tool, age and muscle mass should also be considered. Children and teens are still growing, for example, and older people have less muscle mass than very athletic people, all of which can affect the height to weight comparison.
