What is BMI?

BMI is the abbreviation for your Body Mass Index. In order to calculate your BMI, you need to know your height and weight. Knowing your BMI is of particular importance as it not only gives you a Goal Weight range but also divulges whether or not you are at risk for a number of health problems including (but not limited to); high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and osteoarthritis. The ideal BMI should between 20 and 25.

What is WHR?

As with the BMI, the WHR has been used as an indicator of a person’s risk of developing serious health conditions. If your body is apple-shaped or you have a tendency to store fat around your mid-section, you could be centrally obese or heading in that direction. The concern is not just about body shape or unsightly fat – central obesity is hazardous to your health. Unfortunately, abdominal fat is particularly active, compared to fat stored in other areas around the body, and increases the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, cancer and diabetes. Fat around the middle is also associated with insulin resistance, which causes a myriad of other diseases.
In order to accurately measure your WHR, you need to ensure that you measure the correct parts of your abdomen. When measuring your waist, you need to wrap the tape measure around the smallest circumference of the natural waist (this is usually just above the belly button) and in order to measure your hip circumference you need to measure the widest part of the buttocks or hip.

For women, the ratio should be 0.8 or less and for men, it should be 0.95 or less. A waist circumference greater than 89cm/35 inches for women and 102cm/40 inches for men increases this risk.
