The body fat percentage is the total weight of the person's fat
divided by the person's weight and consists of essential body fat and storage body
fat. Essential body fat is necessary to maintain life and reproductive functions.
The body fat percentage for women is greater than that for men, due to the demands
of childbearing and other hormonal functions.
Storage body fat consists of fat accumulation in adipose tissue, part of which protects
internal organs in the chest and abdomen.
Essential fat is 3%–5% in men, and 8–12% in women.
