The body fat percentage of an individual 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 necessary to maintain multiple life functions. The percentage of essential body fat for women is generally greater than that of men, due to the demands of childbirth. The percentage of essential fat is approximately 3–5% in men, and 8–12% in women.*
