Waist circumference is an important health indicator!
Women´s waist circumference should not exceed 88cm and men´s 102cm. It's not only the measurement of the beauty, it´s also a very important disease risk identification mark.
In case of overweight, the fat is usually deposited either under the skin or around the abdominal organs. In biology, adipose tissue is loose connective tissue composed mostly of adipocytes. Its main role is to store energy in the form of lipids, although it also cushions and insulates the body. Far from hormonally inert, adipose tissue has, in recent years, been recognized as a major endocrine organ, as it produces hormones such as leptin, estrogen and resistin. Moreover, adipose tissue can affect other organ systems of the body and may lead to disease. Obesity or being overweight in humans and most animals does not depend on body weight, but on the amount of body fat—to be specific, adipose tissue.
A body fat monitor is a widely used tool to measure the percentage of fat in the human body, but the first thing to do is to monitor your waist circumference!
