What is the average body fat percentage and weight for a 15 year old female, 5'1?


Posted by amandaxazer

My body fat percentage is 24% and i weigh approx. 115 i work out at the gym pretty consistantly, but not as much as I'd like. I don't really have any stomach fat, but i am pretty curvy on my lower half. I'd like to know what it is i need to loose and excercise.

Here is a simple calculator for teens http://apps.nccd.cdc.gov/dnpabmi/  Based on the info you provided, you are still in the healthy category in 70th percentile range.  As long as you maintain a healthy exercise routine and stay away from the excessive junk foods and sugared drinks, you should be fine.
