About Body Fat Percentage
The body fat percentage (BFP) is the total mass of fat divided by total body mass, multiplied by 100; body fat includes essential body fat and storage body fat. Essential body fat is necessary to maintain life and reproductive functions. The percentage of essential body fat for women is greater than that for men, due to the demands of childbearing and other hormonal functions.
A body fat percentage of 15% or less is recommended for males while a body fat percentage of less than 25% is recommended for females.
Note: The calculator is just a rough estimate and need not be accurate.
