Having joined and subscribed to the British Heart Foundation, I was sent a magazine package complete with freebies of a recipe booklet and a tape measure of all things, like those used by tailors and dressmakers.
The tape measure is slightly different from the normal ones because it was colour coded. White for normal waistline and the red to denote dangerzone towards being unhealthy.
Apparently a woman should have a maximum of 32 inches waistline, while men should have 37 inches at the most. Any higher, would mean an increased risk to health such as heart disease and diabetes.
Come on guys, get measuring. If you are over the limit, time to change your routine and lifestyle.
Maximum waistline for women: 32 inches
Maximum waistline for men: 37 inches
