Brief Answer: 20-25% Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing to HCM. This is Dr. Ashish Verma, a general surgeon, answering to your query. The appropriate body fat at your age is about 20-25%. Your BMI is 24.3...which is normal for your age.. You need to maintain this...still if you want to shed fat...you can do simple excercises like walking for half an hour or playing light outdoors sports like badminton... Hope, that i have answered to all your queries. If you have further queries, i will be glad to answer them. Regards Dr. Ashish Verma
