1. Waist to Hip Ratio

Waist to hip ratio (WHR) is the ratio of your waist circumference to your hip circumference (calculated by dividing the waist circumference by the hip circumference).

Use a measuring tape to measure your waist and hip circumferences:

  1. Measure the circumference of the narrowest part of your waist, usually about an inch above the belly button.
  2. Measure the circumference of the largest area of your hips, usually around the hip bones.

The scale is one of many ways of tracking the changes you’ll experience during this Holistic Reset program. Be aware, the numbers on the scale don’t differentiate between the meal you just ate,¬†water weight, and extra fat. Though the scale isn’t an accurate way to measure your body mass index (BMI), this additional metric is one more way to track and review your progress.
