Most of the human body is made up of water (H2O) or 65% with cells consisting of 65-90% water by weight. Likewise, carbon (C), the basic unit for organic molecules, comes in second at 16.99% of the mass of the human body is made up of just six elements: oxygen (O), carbon (C), hydrogen (H), nitrogen (N), calcium (CA).

Fats are chains of molecules (carbon and hydrogen molecules with one oxygen molecules that are bonded to glycerol [triglycerides]). There are three classifications of fat: saturated, mono-unsaturated, poly-unsaturated. Each one is defined by the number of hydrogen molecules that bind to the carbon. Saturated fats are not double bonded, meaning that the carbon will bond with as many hydrogen molecules as it can.
