what is body fat percentage?

Our bodies are made up of a lot of different kinds of tissues (plus a lot of water). There is muscle, fat, bone, and

specialized tissue such as is in our various organs. The body fat percentage is just that –- the percentage of our

weight which is made up of fat.

Body fat percentage is similar to terms such as body fat ratio and body composition. The part that isn’t fat is

called our “lean body mass.” A 160-pound person with a lean body mass of 120 lbs has 25 percent body fat (40 lbs

of fat). That may sound like a lot, but our bodies need a certain amount of fat for insulation, energy storage,

hormone production, and other functions scientists are just discovering.
