Waist to height ratio

Waist to height ratio calculatorWaist to height ratio is a simple measurement for assessment of lifestyle risk and overweight. Compared to just measuring waist circumference, waist to height ratio is equally fair for short and tall persons. This calculator is valid for children and adults.

Instructions:
1. Measure your waist circumference at a horizontal line one inch above your belly button.
2. Enter waist circumference and height by turning the dials.

Ratio
0.47
OK
Waist
inches
80
Height
ft' in''
170

Background:

Measuring waist to height ratio is gaining popularity in the scientific society as several studies have found that this is a more valid measurement than BMI. Just measuring waist circumference is inherently biased for people taller or shorter than average population.

This calculator uses the criteria for interpretitation suggested by Ashwell.

Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, fantastic blog!

Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone
with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have noticed you don't monetize your blog, don't waste
your traffic, you can earn extra bucks every month because you've got
high quality content. If you want to know how to make extra

I am a student councellor and get this question a lot. Many things define how tall you are going to be including your current height, your age, your parent's height, your diet, your growth spurts, and activities you perform etc.
There is no tool that can tell you your exact future height, but some are better than the others. My personal favourite is https://goo.gl/Rqx8AV

You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be really something that I believe I
would never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely extensive for
me. I'm looking ahead to your subsequent post, I'll attempt to get the cling of it!

Unquestionably consider that which you stated.
Your favorite justification appeared to be at the internet
the simplest thing to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while
folks consider issues that they just do not recognise about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as smartly as outlined out the entire thing without having side effect ,
folks can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.
Thanks

I’m 14 I 5’6 and my waist is 26 inches. I weigh 122 pounds and I feel so uncomfortable with my weight. I used to weigh 130ish but I started getting afraid to gain and now I don’t eat near as much as I used to. Is this weight normal or what?
