DIY dietary related health tip: Waist-to-Height Ratio

Along with BMI, here is another way to interpret health significance or your body weight.

 By including waist measurement, where abdominal fat seems to collect, you can reduce your waistline and reduce your body fat, along with your weight and reduce your risk of disease, increasing your life expectancy. To find a waist-to-height comparison, use a measuring tape.  If your waist is more than 50% of your height, you are at higher health risk.    For example, a 60 inch, or 5 foot, (non-pregnant) adult female should aim for a waistline of 30 inches or less as a goal for better health and less risk of diseases, such as diabetes, excessive obesity, and breast cancer in women.
