Fat Percentage
The body fat percentage (BFP) of a human or other living being is the total mass of fat divided by total body mass. 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. The percentage of essential fat is 3-5% in men, and 8-12% in women. Storage body fat consists of fat accumulation in adipose tissue, part of which protects internal organs in the chest and abdomen. Understanding your ideal body fat percentage is crucial for maintaining good weight and fitness.
