What is the best measure of obesity?
Rather than use BMI (Body Mass Index), it is a better measure of obesity to look at how much abdominal fat a person has. This can be measured by taking the circumference around their waist (waist size). This waist measurement is a good indicator of how much fat is centred around a person's midsection, which can help us understand health risks from being overweight. You can measure your waist yourself, or have a health care worker or an exercise specialist take this for you.
