Abdominal fat

Click here (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-13222192) for the news story.

It says how where you carry your bodyfat can have a big impact on your health and risks of disease.  It talks about the waist/hip ratio.  Or how much fat you are carrying around your belly.  This is a very easy measurement to take.  In fact, you can do it right now!  All you need is a tape measure.

I have written about the hip/waist ratio back in 2009.  So click here (https://cerin.wordpress.com/2009/10/16/assessments-body-composition-part-1-body-weight/) to find out all about it!
