Angry at your scale? Toss it aside

Angry at your scale? Toss it aside. Have you ever heard of waist to hip ratio? Research shows that people who are “apple” shaped (carrying more weight around the waist) face more health risks versus people who are more “pear” shaped (more weight around the hips). Visceral fat (which is found around the waist) is dangerous. Women with a waist circumference higher than 35 inches and men more than 40 inches have a dangerous level of visceral fat. 
Time to measure and calculate! Simply measure your waist at the smallest part (usually right above the belly button) then measure your hips (at the widest part). Divide your waist measurement by your hip measurement. What did you come up with?
For women, it is healthier to be below .85 and for men below .90
*Please share this to your timeline for yourself as well as family and friends. I know a lot of us don’t like the number on the scale, but that is not what is important! Waist to hip ratio is a more accurate way of measuring your health*
