Waist to Hip Ratio

Your Waist to Hip Ratio Will Drop as You Lose Weight.

Did you know that recent research shows that a person’s waist to hip ratio may be a better indicator of heart disease risk than body mass index? So, not only do you look and feel better as you lose weight, you improve your heart health as well (and a whole bunch of other health factors too).

You get to measure your waist at the narrowest point, but you have to measure your hips at their widest point. No cheating! Besides, if you cheat, you’re only cheating yourself.

I know what you’re wanting to ask, “Is a man’s waist to hip ratio important?” The answer is “Yes!”. A high ratio for men implies the same heart disease risk as for women. Men, however, can have a waist to hip ratio around 94% and still be at lower risk! While women’s ratio must be 80% or lower to reduce their heart disease risk.
