The size of your waist is the most important measurement on your body. If you carry alot of excess fat around the waist it can cause health issues as it is around your vital organs. Follow this link to see what your ideal waist size should be, for both men and women for good health.



The fat that surrounds the vital organs is called visceral fat. It wraps itself around the vital organs and can affect your health. The good news is that visceral fat can be reduced by losing weight and doing some exercise. The type of fat that is just under the surface of the skin is called subcutaneous fat or stubborn fat! This is much harder to shift. See the diagram below.
