Hey guys. Did anybody see the item on the BBC about waist measurements now being an indicator of risk for heart disease etc?
The ideal is under 80 cms. They had a fitnes instructor on who didn't make the ideal despite teaching classes and going to the gym most days...and looking athletic and gorgeous.
Is this another example of arbitary figures being used...like BMI without any discussion of underlying fitness.BP/cholestrol etc?
My best friend is a size 12-14, never exercises, eats rubbish and yet she would be considered much healthier than someone like me who despite being grossly overweight exercises regularly, eats well( most of the time) and have a BP and resting pulse rate well within healthy limits.
Would love to know your opinions!!
