Scientists from the University Of Oxford Brooks discovered a new and surprisingly simple way of diagnosing excess weight (without formulas and tables).

Do the following.

Take a rope that suits your height. Fold it in half, and wrap around the waist.

If you can put together the ends of the rope halved – with you everything is fine. If you cannot, then the news is bad – you have excess weight.

The scope of your waist should not be more than half your height.

More than 3000 patients confirmed the effectiveness of these methods:

The point is that the BMI (body mass indexes) do not always give an accurate picture. Given the fact that the determination of BMI there is a number of formulas, the experts say it’s not that simple, but waist in their opinion, does not lie.

The study showed that the people with type figure “apple“, have a higher risk for cardiovascular disease.
