55- 60% of the human body consists of water overall. Of this, the highest concentration is in the lungs which are nearly 90% water; the blood has 80% and the brain and skin 70%.
The remaining 35-40% of our bodies consists mainly of fat and protein, with small amounts of the bone minerals calcium, phosphorus and glycogen.

Different people have different percentages of their bodies made up of
water. Babies have the most, being born at about 78%. By one year of age,
that amount drops to about 65%. In adult men, about 60% of their bodies
are water. However, fat tissue does not have as much water as lean tissue.
In adult women, fat makes up more of the body than men, so they have about
55% of their bodies made of water. Fat men also have less water (as a
percentage) than thin men.
