Body Fat Calculator helps you to find out your body fat percentage, your body type and the number of calories you have to burn, to lose 1% of your body fat.
Body fat percentage (BFP) 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 needed for 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.
An estimate of the amount of body fat that you need to lose is the first step in any successful weight loss program.
Body fat percentage (BFP) is a good indicator of your body composition and indicates the amount of fat you have in your body.
Two persons of same height and weight may have same Body Mass Index (BMI) but different body composition. This is because of the difference in the amount and distribution of fat they have in their body. It is important to have a healthy amount of body fat to regulate body temperature, protect organs and stay energetic. But having more than the required percentage of body fat can lead to serious health problems like obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart diseases. If you want to feel fit and look fit; make sure you have less body fat and more muscle mass.
This calculator uses Hodgdon-Beckett formula, which is used by U.S. Navy, to calculate body fat percentage using tape measurements.
