Q

Sophie’s total body fat is 30%, which places her in the healthy body fat range. True or False?

A

Answer: False

The Body Mass Index (BMI) of a healthy female is below 30 — with a higher range of 24. If a woman has a body fat of 30%, her Body Mass Index is 30. This means she is within the range of obesity and cannot be considered healthy. Therefore, Sophie — with a total body fat of 30% — is obese and unhealthy.
