The New Killer in Town… Visceral Fat

We have a new killer in town… VISCERAL FAT!

Visceral fat is a type of body fat that’s stored within the abdominal cavity. It tends to accumulate near several vital organs, including your:

🔺 Liver
🔺 Stomach
🔺 Intestines
🔺 It can also build up in the arteries.

Visceral fat is sometimes referred to as “active fat” because carrying excess visceral fat actively increases your risk of developing several serious and life threatening health conditions. These include:

✖️ Heart attack and heart disease
✖️ Type 2 diabetes
✖️ Stroke
✖️ Breast cancer
✖️ Colorectal cancer

With Covid-19 ravaging the world, we now know that anyone with the above conditions is very vulnerable to the Coronavirus.

Here’s a Simple Step-by-Step Guide on How To Measure your Waist-Height Ratio:

The best estimators of your visceral fat are by measuring either your:
1. Waist-height ratio or
2. Waist circumference

May be an image of one or more people and text that says "Best estimator of visceral fat mass percentage Waist Circumference Goal is Women- Less than 34.5 inches Men- Less than 40 inches Waist-height ratio Goal is less than 0.5 PRECIOUS WELLNESS"

⏩ Measure your height in centimeters

⏩ Measure your waist circumference in centimeters

⏩ Measure your waist at the belly button.

⏩ Remember that your waist should be relaxed as you measure it.

⏩ Divide waist by height measurements to get the ratio.

⏭⏭ Your waist should be less than half your height so the goal is 0.5 or lower

⏮⏮…Have you taken your measurements? Can I have a peak at your results? 👀
