Lean body mass is the weight of muscle, bone, organ tissue, blood and everything apart from body fat. It is important to maintain your level of lean body mass as any weight loss goal beyond this is unrealistic and harmful to the body as it would indicate starvation. However, everyone needs some body fat on top of their lean body mass. To calculate lean body mass (LBM) you subtract your body fat from your total body weight.
