Achieving a healthy body weight is one of the best things you can do to improve your heart health and wellbeing.

While there’s a lot of information out there about weight and weight loss, this can actually make harder to know what a healthy weight is and how to achieve it.

Firstly, it can be helpful to learn how to assess your weight by measuring your waist.

Waist measurement is a simple check to tell if you’re carrying excess body fat around your middle.

Your waist measurement is an indicator of the level of internal fat deposits that coat the heart, kidneys, liver, digestive organs and pancreas.

This can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.
