Trump informed Dr. Oz that he weighs 236 pounds, according to audience members who attended the taping Wednesday.

Trump, who stands at 6 foot 3 inches, admitted to Dr. Oz that he would like to lose "15 to 20 pounds."

"There was a little bit of a discussion about his weight. Donald Trump admitted that he wanted to work on it himself," one audience member said. 

Another added: "They only thing that discovered was that his body mass index was a little on the high side, but otherwise, Dr. Oz was pleased."

Inside Edition asked Dr. Travis Stork, co-host of The Doctors, about Trump's weight.

"If you are 6’2” to 6’3”, in an ideal world, you would be looking at your weight to be at a maximum of 200 pounds. Nowadays, it is... your waist circumference compared to anything else," he said. 

Trump's body mass is 29.5. That means he's just a smidge below a classification as obese, which is 30 or above, according to the CDC Body Mass Index Calculator.

In the Dr. Oz appearance, the 70-year-old Trump defended his love of fast food and said he exercises by playing golf and working up a sweat at campaign appearances.
