Dr. Phil Height

"If you don't have a plan, days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months, months turn into years, and before you know it you're looking back saying, I should've had a plan."

~ Phil McGraw

Famous television personality Phil McGraw or better known as Dr. Phil is best known as the host of the television show Dr. Phil.

Anyone who has ever seen an episode of Dr. Phil could guess that he is a large man even when sitting down. He is big for sure -- but how tall is he exactly?

Well, Mr. McGraw once claimed to stand 6-feet-4 inches tall.

Perhaps Phil was that tall in his prime (we suspect slightly below the 6'4" mark) but now in his seventies, he could be expected and forgiven to lose some height due to age. 

It is said that taller people lose height faster than the shorter ones, but in our experience, it is usually the bulky people who lose the height fastest and Dr. Phil is certainly heavyset.

The height of Dr. Phil in his prime was

6'3½" or 192 cm

Present height is 6'2" or 188 cm
