Waist to Height Ratio – Determines health risk and obesity

According to the latest research the WtHR (Waist to Height Ratio) is considered to be one of the most conclusive measurements in terms of determining health risk in relation to obesity. It shows the relationship between waist circumference (measured around the navel) and body height.

The Formula is: WHtR = Waist Circumference (in cm) : Body Height (in cm)

Evaluation:

At your age and your height, your ideal waist circumference is between  and  cm.

As a reference, the WHtR should be between 0,32 and 0,50, but not over 0,53. If converted, a WHtR-Value of 0,53 represents a BMI of 25.

It is normal for the WHtR to increase slightly with age:

WHtR in relation to Age Below 15 Years Up to 40 Years Over 50 Years
too small WHtR < 0,34 WHtR < 0,40 WHtR < 0,40
ideal WHtR 0,34-0,45 WHtR 0,40-0,50 WHtR 0,40-0,60
too high WHtR 0,45-0,51 WHtR 0,51-0,56 WHtR 0,61-0,66
definitely too high WHtR > 0,52 WHtR > 0,57 WHtR > 0,67
If you are aged between 40 and 50, the range value will increase by 0.01 or one hundredth each year.
