Calculate: Look up what your ideal body weight is. Subtract your ideal body weight from your original weight. That number is the denominator representing your total excess weight. The numerator is the amount of weight you have actually lost. So if your excess weight was 50 lbs and you have lost 20 lbs, you have lost 20/50=40% of excess body weight.
