Men on average weigh 196 pounds, while women weigh an average of 160 pounds. Additionally, Americans' ideal weight has also increased since 1990. On average, men's ideal weight is 181 pounds and women say it's 138 pounds.
Comparing the self-reports of actual and ideal weights, the average man weighs 15 pounds more than his ideal today, compared with 9 pounds in 1990. The average woman weighs 22 pounds more than her ideal today, compared with 13 pounds in 1990. The current figures for men and women are the highest Gallup has measured to date.
Also troubling is the fact that 67 percent of Americans in the poll weigh more than their ideal weight, which is up from the 62 percent who answered the same poll a year ago.
