Some people have distortion of image and feel that they are fat when they are not. The best approach it to send weight and height to a physician and then calculate the BMI. If they fall within the acceptable range, then obviously the person is not fat or obese. Female, need certain percentage of fat (around 17%) in their body in order to maintain hormonal balance and maintain their cycle
