What is body fat percentage?

Body fat percentage refers to the total amount of body fat mass in regards to the total body weight expressed as a percentage. Body Fat Scales will give your specific body fat percentage and body weight. They are also an excellent tool to estimate your body fat percentage and measure body weight on a continuous schedule.

Body fat percentage (%) = {Body Fat Mass / Body weight} x 100

Body fat reading is affected by change of water content in the body

A person's hydration level and blood circulation may have an effect on their body fat reading. In the table below are some situations which could affect the reading

Cause of FluctuationsExamples of Fluctuation
Water and food intake1 to 2 hours after breakfast, lunch, or dinner
Changes in blood circulationAfter taking a bath or shower, immediately after exercising, in extreme environments (warm or cold), during illness or extreme fatigue
