Waist to Hip Ratio and Overall Health

Measure yourself, and don't lie to yourself.
Waist to hip ratio is one of the easiest tests to see how your overall health is.
If you have a poor waist to hip ratio, it means your body is in an inflammatory state increasing pain and swelling internally but also that you are on your way to having high blood glucose, type 2 diabetes, high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, metabolic syndrome and heart disease just to name a few.
Usually the goal waist circumference for men is around 33" and 28" for women depending on your frame.
If you aren't in the proper ratio: 
1. Increase healthy protein 
2. Decrease net carbs to under 100 grams/day 
Net carbs = total carbs - fiber
3. Intermittent fast and only eat from 11-7 PM 3-7 days per week
4. Sleep more
5. Take magnesium to increase frequency of bowel movements
