How a piece of STRING can tell you if you're too big for your frame!
There is a relatively simple test that can instantly indicate if you have a dangerously thick middle. Having too much visceral fat or “beer belly” puts you at a higher risk of developing diabetes and heart disease - and can take up to a decade off your life expectancy.
With this easy height-to-waist ratio measurement you can reveal what risks you are taking with your health. All you need is a string as long as you are tall. Fold it in half, and if that length is enough to go around your waist, you are ok. Need more string to reach? That is not a good sign.
