This is such an easy test to do for your self, simply measure your waist, if it is greater than 35 inches or 88cm and you are a woman, you have a 99% increased risk of dying from a Heart Attack !!! Yes 99% increased risk !!!
No need for all the trips to the doctor, this little test will tell all you need to know.
- Along with the increased risk of heart disease you can add a 63% risk of cancer compared with women who have a waist measurement of 28 inches – 71cm.
- 50% – 1/2 of all women and men with a waist larger than 39 inches – 100cm already have insulin resistance, diabetes.
Sometimes it takes a famous FAT celebrity to bring it to our attention, that this simple test could alert you to your personal risk factor.
Rosie O’Donnell recently had a heart attack, it has been blasted across the media, I am surprised ?? hardly if you are that overweight/obese you have to expect the consequences.
FAT = HEART ATTACK

THIS IS PREVENTABLE
HOW, you ask ?? – Loose weight, with a diet rich in Fruit & Vegetables and Walk at least 1/2 hour every day.
Please don’t try the big boned excuse either here is some more evidence
FAT IS FAT
5lb = 2kg 10lb = 4kg 15lb = 6kg 20lb = 8.5kg
I think it is pretty easy to see an extra couple of pounds/kilo’s can have an extremely detrimental effect on your longevity and overall health and lifestyle.
I have just wrapped a tape measure around my waist – results are 26 inches or 64 cm
Are you game enough to share your waist measurement ??
My father died @ 42 with a major heart attack – he was grossly overweight, carrying all of his weight in his gut, typical ‘beer gut’ known to so many guy’s out there, and alarmingly in women as well.
