Enter the ideal weight (lbs) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Weight Set Point. 

Weight Set Point Formula

WSP = IW +/- 10


  • WSP is the Weight Set Point (lbs)
  • IW is the ideal weight (lbs)

To calculate Weight Set Point, add and subtract 10 lbs from the ideal weight.

How to Calculate Weight Set Point?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Weight Set Point.

  • First, determine the ideal weight (lbs). 
  • Next, gather the formula from above = WSP = IW +/- 10.
  • Finally, calculate the Weight Set Point.
  • After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
