Daily Mail UK is doing an informative piece on Middle Age Fat. Here's a quick way to calculate it.
Place a measure tape just above your belly button and measure it. For women, anything above 32 inches are at greater risk for diabetes and heart disease, for men it's 37 inch.
Now that's just one test, another test which is more accurate is Weight To Hip Ratio Test.
Measure the narrowest part of your waist.
Now take the measure tape again and measure around your hips, just below the point where the top of the thigh bone meets the pelvis.
Divide the 1st measurement to the 2nd measurement. Anything higher than 0.8 for women and 0.9 men then you are unhealthy.
