Never let the waist size increase, here is why

Your risk of some health problems is affected by where your body fat is stored, as well as by your weight. Carrying too much fat around your middle (waist) can increase your risk of developing conditions such as:

1.heart disease
2.type 2 diabetes
Measuring your waist is a good way to check you’re not carrying too much fat around your stomach, which can raise your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke.
You can have a healthy BMI and still have excess tummy fat – meaning you’re still at risk of developing these diseases.
To measure your waist:
find the bottom of your ribs and the top of your hips
wrap a tape measure around your waist, midway between these points
breathe out naturally before taking the measurement
Regardless of your height or BMI, you should try to lose weight if your waist is:
94cm (37ins) or more for men
80cm (31.5ins) or more for women
102cm (40ins) or more for men
88cm (34ins) or more for women
Losing weight around the stomach
Most people who are overweight find their excess weight is down to eating more energy (calories) than they burn.
Weight gain occurs when we regularly put more calories into our bodies than we use. Over time, that excess energy is stored by the body as fat.
If you’re trying to lose weight, it’s a good idea to eat less and be more active.
