Older individuals tend to have a lower body density for the same skinfold measurements, which is assumed to indicate a higher body fat percentage.
Older, athletic individuals, however, might not fit this assumption because their body density may be underestimated.
In addition, women need a higher amount of body fat for ovulation.
“Essential fat” is the minimum amount of fat necessary for basic physical and physiological health. in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2000) came to the conclusion that certain low body fat ranges are “underfat”, which implies “unhealthy”.
In my opinion, I think body fat is one important measure of health, but stating a certain body fat level is “unhealthy” doesn’t give the whole story.
For women in this same age group, any level under 21% is “underfat” and 21-33% is considered “healthy”.Conversely, to imply that anyone who has a six pack (below 8% body fat for men), is very athletic, and eats well is “underfat”, or “unhealthy” is a stretch.We all have different shapes, sizes, and fat distribution profiles, but I think the chart above is a good starting point.While there is some debate as to what constitutes a “healthy” body fat range, I have below 2 different types of body fat percentage charts, which I will walk you through along with some insights into how to read each chart.The chart below from the American Council on Exercise (ACE) is one of the most commonly used body fat charts.
