Interesting article at Men’s Health about waist to hip ratio.
I’m always on the look out for things like this so I can measure progress somewhere other then the scale. The gist of the article is that you measure your stomach at the belly button and divide that number by the size of your hips.
0.92 or lower is ideal.
My waist at the belly button is 42 inches. My hips are 42 inches. After a lot of complicated math that I won’t bore you with, I figured out that my ratio is 1. If I lost 4 inches on my stomach I’d be able to hit that ideal mark.
