About Waist to Hip Ratio
The waist to hip ratio is a measure of a persons waist size in relation to their hip size. This measurement
is used to help measure the proportion of fat around the torso and as such can be used to help determine
a persons level of health. For some people, such as those with above average amounts of muscle or those
with low density bones, the waist to hip ratio can be a much better estimate of health risk than other measurements
such as BMI. This is because BMI doesn't take factors such as body composition into account whereas the waist
to hip ratio is more dependent on body makeup. Studies have found that for men a good waist to hip ratio is
0.9 while for women who typically have narrower hips a ratio of 0.7 is more ideal.
