Waist-to-Height Ratio

I’ve been struggling a little with Dr. Fuhrman’s “Ideal Weight” calculator–I think the number it spits out is fair for me and my body type and build, but I don’t feel the calculator produces a fair number for every person. When I saw this article, “Waist-to-height ratio is a better screening tool than waist circumference and BMI…” I felt I’d found a better estimator. Rather than giving you a single magic number that you’re supposed to work toward, it places you in a range. This study showed a person’s waist-to-height ratio can predict cardiometabolic risk factors.

Use this calculator to find your ratio and see your range and description.
