Essential and nonessential fat

Essential fat is necessary for temperature regulation, shock absorption, and regulation of essential body nutrients. Nonessential fat is the result of taking in more calories than you expend. When nonessential fat accumulates in excessive amounts, and individual may become overfat.

Overfat is more important than overweight in determining health and wellness. The body mass index (BMI) is probably the best way to use height and weight to assess fatness. The BMI can provide guidelines for body fatness, but is not a true measure of body fatness. Thus, it should not be used to assess performance. A person who has a large muscle mass as a result of regular exercise could appear to be overweight using a height and weight table.
