"If you carry fat mainly around your waistline, you are more likely to develop issues with your health, such as heart disease and diabetes."
Your waist circumference is usually measured at the level of your belly button, not where you wear your pants.
Men - Male waist circumference should be less than 40 inches (102 cm).
Women - Female waist circumference should be less than 35 inches (88 cm).
NOTE: See our Male & Female Waist to Hip Ratio Calculator to calculate your WHR.
If you carry fat mainly around your waistline, you are more likely to develop issues with your health, such as heart disease and diabetes, than if you carry fat mainly in your hip and thigh areas.
If your waist circumference measurement is higher than the above figures you may want to calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI).
