You know that being chubby, especially around the waist, is unhealty, Here’s a new way to measure the danger: check your jeans. Men with pant sizes 38 inches and over and women sizes 16 and up are at higher risk of heart disease and diabetes, say British researchers.
Why? The bigger your trousers, the more dangerous belly fat you have and the shorter you are, the greater your risk. The American Heart Association says aim for a waist circumference less than 40 inches for men and 35 for women.
