# Calculate LeanBodyMass Online - The LeanBodyMass Formula

## What is the LeanBodyMass?

The Lean Body Mass (LBM) is a part of the body. It is normally defined to be the body weight minus the body fat. Typically lean body mass is 60-90% of the total body mass. Normally, men have higher port of lean body mass than women. Some anaesthetic agents dosage, especially water-soluble drugs, are routinely based on the lean body mass value. Many formulas have been developed in the past for the estimation of the lean body mass. The following are some of them. This calculator gives out result for all the fitting formulas.

## How is LeanBodyMass calculated formula?

In most situations, the BMR is estimated with equations summarized from statistical data. The most commonly used one is the Mifflin - St Jeor equation:

#### The Boer Formula:

Men: eLBM = 0.407weight(kg) + 0.267height(cm) - 19.2
Women: eLBM = 0.252weight(kg) + 0.473height(cm) - 48.3

#### The James Formula:

Men: eLBM = 1.1weight(kg) - 128(weight(kg)/height(cm))2
Women: eLBM = 1.07weight(kg) - 148(weight(kg)/height(cm))2

#### The Hume Formula:

Men: eLBM = 0.32810weight(kg) + 0.33929height(cm) - 29.5336
Women: eLBM = 0.29569weight(kg) + 0.41813height(cm) - 43.2933
