Size does matter when it comes to your waistline

See also

For a healthy waistline a woman’s waist should be 35 inches or smaller. A healthy waistline size for a man’s waist should be less than 40 inches. When using this measurement for both adult men and women it cuts down the unhealthy belly fat that can eventually increase your chances of certain diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease, among others and eventually an early death.

How do you control the amount of belly fat you have stocked piled?

Start a daily exercise regime, get plenty of sleep, start eating healthier meals throughout the day and begin a food and exercise journal. It’s a known fact that people who keep food journals lose more weight than people who don’t and people who keep track of their exercise are more prone to stay with the exercise program longer.

The more accountable you are to yourself the better the outcome of your health will be. Changing your lifestyle is the key to a healthier, longer, happier life.

See your primary health care provider and find out what are the best exercises and diet plans for your body type, size and age.
