Interesting, although I don't think this works well for me. I have a very slim neck for my weight (I just measured it, it's not quite at 13 inches--maybe 12.9, which is well under what the article said for 18 year old women, and I'm 28 now). But I clearly need to lose weight.
I have wondered though if people just see a picture of my face, if they'd be able to tell that I'm really in the obese category, because my neck is so slim. I never get a real double chin until I hit 250 lbs. (I've always been so thankful for that!)
It is nice to know that I may be slightly less at risk because of my neck though!
