The term "body fat percentage" is normally associated with professional bodybuilders. This is because much ado is made about a low body in bodybuilding circles. As this fact creates awareness towards developing low body fat, it also creates a somewhat limited perception. Body fat percentage can be divergent and dissimilar in two individuals. Meaning, a person with 35% fat in his body can be deemed salubrious whereas a person with just 5% body fat can be prone to serious health issues. This fact is absolutely comprehensible because the body fat is pivoted on a person's statistics like age, gender, height, and weight. As these elements differ from one person to another, the interpretation of the body fat percentage varies accordingly.Our Body Fat Percentage Calculator estimates the percentage of your body fat in your total body weight.
It is important to note the differences of body fat percentages between men and women. Mainly, women are healthier with higher body fat percentages than men. This is because women require higher fat levels for a safe and healthy pregnancy.
Two types of body fat are found in the body, one is the Essential Body Fat and the other is the Storage Body Fat. The Essential Body Fat is important to support life and reproductive functions. It is usually higher in women than in men. The Storage Body Fat is the mass of additional accumulated fat. Though some deem it as unnecessary; it is needed because it protects your abdomen and internal organs.
