Okay, so I'm not a math person, but how does multiplying your body fat percentage times your weight give you your lean body mass? Wouldn't that give you the number of pounds that is fat?

If I do that (at 115 pounds and 24% body fat), that gives me 27 grams of protein a day...that seems really low.

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but I am really trying to focus on protein these days and I wish it made intuitive sense!
