Remember that every individual requires a minimum amount of body fat. For men no less than 5 % body fat and for women no less than 8% body fat. This fat is called essential fat and is necessary for good health.

Nonessential fat is an accumulation of stored calories, a result of taking in more calories then you actually need. This can result in obesity, which has been proven to lead to a number of health problems.
