Optimal Health Solution in the press

Waist to hip ratio: an easy way to describe your body proportions and helps you determine your overall health risks, such as type II diabetes and heart disease. Studies show that abdominal fat is one of the best predictors of health risk. People who are not overweight, but have a large waist size (pear shape) may indicate that they are at higher risk of health problems than those with a normal waist size.
