As we get older our body fat percentile changes. Body fat percentile provides the most accurate estimate of body composition and is an indication of the percent of your body that is made of fat.
Normal body fat percent for women is 20 to 30.
In women, below 17 is extreme low body fat; between 30 to 33, high body fat; and above 34, extremely high body fat or obese.
The recommended healthy body fat percentiles increase slightly with age.
