Body fat percentage - Definition


Definition


The body fat percentage corresponds to a mathematical formula that calculates the amount of fat contained in the body. It is measured as a percentage, and is based on the difference between fatty and muscular mass in the body. There are several different possible methods for calculating this, one of which is the Deurenberg method, the most commonly used for adults, which is based on the criteria of body mass index (BMI), age in years, and gender (0 for female and 1 for male). The formula is as follows: body fat %=(1.2 x BMI) + (0.23 x age) - (10.8 x S) - 5.4.
