I know that sometimes people are dubious about their BMI and either can’t work it out or think that their BMI is not that important.
So what about your waist measurement?
This can be an easy way to see if you are at risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes or heart disease because if you waist measure is more than half of your height then you could be carrying visceral fat that attaches to your organs. This is very damaging to your health
So if you are 5ft 6 inches your waist should not be more than 33 inches
Or if you are 6ft tall not more than 36 inches
If you are more familiar with metric measurement then this would be
167.5cm and 64 cm
or 182.2cm and 91 cm
I know that when I mention this men they often say well I am around 6ft but I only wear 36 inch waist trousers so I should be okay but they forget that often the waist of their trousers is sitting below a much bigger tummy. So when they know where the waist measurement should be taken they often have a shock. So put the tape measure around your waist just below your belly button and check out yours!
