To measure your waist, wrap a tape measure around the narrowest part of your torso (usually near the belly button).  Exhale gently as you pull the tape measure around you so that the ends meet.  This is your waist measurement.  A waist measurement greater than 40 inches for men and greater than 35 inches for women puts you in the high risk category.  Watch this video to get the full scoop on how to measure your waist and what this measurement means!
