Jan 19, 2019 · His fat mass and lean body mass would be calculated as such:

**1. 0.10 (body fat %) x 200 (scale weight) = 20 pounds of body fat. 2. 200 pound (scale weight) − 20 (pounds of body fat) = 180 pounds of lean body mass.**The remaining 180 pounds (200 total pounds – 20 pounds of fat weight = 180 lbs.) is muscle, organs, bones, water, etc. Researchers call the remaining 180 pounds lean body weight (LBM) – the amount of body that is NOT fat!**Lean****Body****Mass**vs. Muscle**Mass**: Sometimes**lean****body****mass**(LBM) also referred to as a “**lean****mass**,” likely the source of the term “**lean**muscle”, it is the total**weight**of an individual**body**minus all the**weight**due to his/her fat**mass**.**Lean****Body****Mass**(LBM) = Total**Weight**– Fat**Mass**.**Lean****Body****Mass**(LBM) consists of the**weight**of: Organs; Skin; BonesPeople also ask

Aug 03, 2010 · It sounds like you might be slightly underweight. Also, if your

**body**fat percentage is truly 12.87%, it also sounds like you’re very**lean**(possibly too**lean**). If you take a look at our Ideal**Body**Fat**Chart**, you’ll see that a woman’s essential fat level is between 10-13%.Women need to have more

**body**fat than men so they can bear children, so they tend to average a less**lean****body****mass**than men. For example, a woman with between 25 and 31 percent**body**fat would be considered average, but for a man, the average amount of**body**fat is between 18 and 24 percent. This means that average**lean body mass**for a woman would be between 69 and 75 percent, and for a man, average**lean body mass**would be between 76 and 82 percent.- Jessica Bruso

The formula is used to compute an eLBM based on an estimated extracellular volume (eECV) as follows: eECV = 0.0215·W 0.6469 ·H 0.7236. eLBM = 3.8·eECV. In the formulas above, W is the

**body****weight**in kilogram and H is the**body**height in centimeter. Boer P. "Estimated**lean****body****mass**as an index for normalization of**body**fluid volumes in man."- cm

Formula:

**For men: LBM = (0.407 × W) + (0.267 × H) − 19.2. For women: LBM = (0.252 × W) + (0.473 × H) − 48.3.**where W is body weight in kilograms and H is body height in centimeters.
