Our Body composition is simply the ratio of lean body mass to fat body mass.
So too much fat can lead to health problems like heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol and other serious conditions.
First, our body fat percentage is simply the percentage of fat it contains.
Suppose If you are 150 pounds and 10% fat, it means that your body consists of 15 pounds fat and 135 pounds lean body mass.
A certain amount of fat is essential to bodily functions.
Fat regulates body temperature, cushions and insulates organs and tissues and is the main form of the body's energy storage.
There are several ways you can find out your percentage of body fat.
