The Waist To Hip Ratio - A differentiation between apple and pear type
The WHR is a measure used to determine the distribution of fat in the body. The value results from the ratio of waist to hip circumference. If it is greater than 1, due to the increased fat storage on the trunk, this is considered a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Values below 1 are a sign of increased fat deposits on the buttocks and hips and are less of a risk factor.
In our WHR calculator you can calculate your personal risk and check whether you are an apple or a pear type. All you have to do is fill out the questionnaire below.
