A simple way to assess your body fat risk is to take your waist measurement. A healthy measurement for women is below 80 cm and below 90 cm for men.
Women have a higher than normal body fat risk if their measurement is above 87cm. If you are male your risk is high if your waist measures above 102cm.
Extra body fat around the abdomen sits very close to vital organs and creates more stress on the heart. It is vital to lose this unhealthy belly fat.
Belly fat is strongly linked to elevated levels of insulin. It increases the serious risk of developing Insulin Resistance Syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes.
