Everyone knows about BMI. Hopefully y'all also know how shitty a measure of anything other than your BMI it actually is.
If you've read my posts on my current weight-loss efforts (yes, I didn't post one last month, next post on that will go into why), you've seen me pushing a different measure, WHR, or waist-to-hips ratio, which is a better indicator of things like heart disease risk.
Now there's a new WHR: waist-to-height ratio. New research suggests (ugh, I sound like a "science journalist"!) that those with a waist-to-height ratio of under 0.50 are more likely to live longer.
At 69 inches tall (insert joke here), my last waist measurement of 44.5 inches puts my waist-to-height ratio at 0.645. I think I'm actually better now, my waist seems smaller than that 6-week-old measurement, but I'll find out tomorrow.
