@Drumroll 10g of fat only on a lean person?!? I think your numbers might be off. Even if someone weighed 50Kg with 1% bf

50kg= 50000g 1% of that is 500g or 0.5 kg. Of course 1% is an extreme example but even someone with 10% bf which is pretty good for the average male that would be 5kg of fat on the body and a woman with 20% bf again pretty lean would be carrying and extra 10kg of bf.

@MarissaLinnea there are lots of calculators you can use to calculate % bf using a tape measure taking body measurements it will give you a close enough approximation.

Although I am not a big fan of BMI for the average joe and for what you are doing it should be a good enough indicator. If you calculate your bmi you can convert to bf% and work our your lbm from there.
