What is Body Fat Percentage?

Body fat percentage is the total fat in the body divided by the total body mass and expressed as a percentage.

Body fat percentage is an important metric in gauging overall health.

Individuals of the same height and total body mass may differ greatly (internally and externally) as a result of different body fat percentages (i.e., compositions).

There are many ways to obtain your body fat percentage, but at Estimate Body Fat, you simply need to upload your picture.

Body Fat Percentage Information

Another commonly used metric is Body Mass Index (BMI).

BMI is a value derived from a person’s height and total body mass. It classifies individuals into broad categories such as underweight, normal weight, overweight or obese, based on a number between 15 and 60.

However, due to different body compositions (e.g., more muscle – less fat, tall and skinny, skinny fat, etc.), this can lead to an overestimation or underestimation of overall health.
