Question: Is 3% body fat healthy?

3-4% body fat: Ridiculously lean. This is a very low level and the lowest level of body fat you should have. Two percent body fat is the barest essential minimum needed for organs to properly function. 6-7% body fat: This level isnt as extreme as the competition bodybuilder level.

Can you live with 2% body fat?

Percent Body Fat Ranges For women it is important to not go any lower than 10 to 13 percent body fat and men should go no lower than 2 to 5 percent body fat, according to the American Council on Exercise. Higher than this is considered the average category which is still an acceptable amount of fat.

Why is my BMI low but body fat high?

This is partially because muscle weighs more than fat, so if your body fat percentage is low, but you weigh more than whats average for your height, your BMI could say that you are obese when you arent.
