How Much Should I Weigh If I Am 5'4"?

Updated March 23, 2017

According to the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans, a healthy body weight for people 5 feet 4 inches tall is between 49.9 and 63.5 Kilogram. Those weighing in at 65.8 to 76.7 Kilogram are considered overweight, while those individuals who weigh 174 or more pounds are considered obese.

Each Body Is Different.

Other factors could contribute to how much you weigh based on your height. If you have a stout build and work out a lot, your weight figure may come in at the high range of "healthy," when in reality you are right at your target weight. No two bodies are the same.

Bottom Line

Keep in mind that these government guidelines are just that: guidelines. If you are 5 feet 4 inches tall and above the healthy weight range, consider modifying your diet and exercising more to reach a lower target weight. If you are at the low end of or below the healthy weight range and still think you need to lose weight, you might want to seek the help of a counsellor.
