​Fat Tables

The following are guides to recommended body fat levels relevant to age. Your DEXA report will give you meaningful indices based purely on fat and lean mass, such as your Fat Mass Index (FMI) and Lean Mass Index (LMI) and Android/Gynoid ratio.

The key advantage of an index based on fat rather than weight is that you should almost certainly be aiming to reduce it. You cannot say the same about someone’s weight or their BMI because they take no account of body composition.
