What You Can Do: Reduce Waist Size / Lower BMI

Maintaining healthy weight, or re-attaining it if that’s not the case, is a key to long-term health and vitality. Both Body Mass Index (BMI) and Waist Circumference are potent biomarkers of disease risk in general and Metabolic Syndrome in particular. The circumference of your waist is a simple biomarker that anyone can easily determine with a tape measure. Similarly your BMI is easily determined. On a calculator you can do it this way: Divide your weight (in kg) by your height (in m), then divide by your height (in m) again.

Example:

A person who weighs 72.5 kg and stands 1.625 m tall

Managing our weight and staying physically active are the foundation of health. According to the World Health Organization and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, being overfed and under-active is a primary force behind Metabolic Syndrome and the heart disease and diabetes it points to.
