  High Triglycerides: Do You Have an Apple Figure? Lowering High Triglycerides Naturally: Catalog

To find out whether you have an apple figure, determine your waist-to-hip ratio:

  • Take your waist measurement with a tape measure around your waist an inch above the navel.
  • Then take your hip measurement by measuring your hips at their widest point.
  • Determine your waist-to-hip ratio by dividing your waist measurement by your hip measurement.

An unhealthy accumulation of fat in the middle, or an apple figure, suggests for women, ratio over 0.8; for men, ratio over 1.0.

The Waist-to-Height Ratio Lowering High Triglycerides Naturally: Catalog

Your waist size in inches should not be greater than one half your height in inches.
However, one of the simplest and the most accurate cardiovascular risk formulas and ratios is the waist-to-height ratio (WHtR). The ratio between waist girth and height indicates the degree to which fat has accumulated around the waist. Typically, it is a male pattern of fat distribution, but females do exhibit this also!

A waist-to-height ratio under 50 percent is generally considered "normal." Tthe greater your abdominal girth relative to your height, the fatter you are, and, consequently, the greater your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Also the WHtR gives a more accurate assesment of health for serious athletes, especially body builders, who have a higher percentage of muscle and a lower percentage of body fat, and for women who have a "pear" rather than an "apple" shape.

Insurance companies are good at making money because their actuaries are very knowledgeable in determining risks. Why do you think they insist on knowing your height and waist measurements as part of your insurance physical?

Increased abdominal girth is a strong and useful indicator of:

  • hyperinsulinemia
  • pre-diabetes
  • diabetes and, consequently
  • cardiovascular disease.

The Risky Beer Belly Lowering High Triglycerides Naturally: Catalog

Your belly becomes really risky when the girth crosses 40 inches, or 102 cm.
Fat sticking around the abdomen creates a "beer belly," also called "hypertriglyceridemic waist."

Actually, it can forecast a cardiologist in your future as the bulging stomach is also associated with a higher risk of high blood pressure and even certain forms of cancer.

ďHundreds of studies have led to the conclusion that any fat [in excess] can be problematic, but itís much, much more dangerous when itís accumulated in the abdomen,Ē said Dr Jeffrey Flier, researcher at the prestigious Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

How big is big?

Usually, dangers begin to emerge in men who have a belly that measures more than 37 inches, or 94 cm around the middle.

Not All Bellies Created Equal Lowering High Triglycerides Naturally: Catalog

High Triglycerides Lowering Diet: Man with Beer Belly
Soft bellies are far less dangerous than the rock hard ones. If you arenít sure of what youíve got, get someone to punch you in the stomach.

Unfortunately beer bellies usually come with their close relatives - love handles. Those wobbly stubborn pieces of fat on the sides of the waist. No matter what you do, they donít seem to go away.

For many men, the first signs of this unholy spread, usually appears at middle age, making a midlife crisis also a midriff crisis. The bills for the excesses committed in the twenties and thirties - late nights, boozing, no exercise - start to pile up. At midlife all the old programming goes haywire. The joke has a cruel new punch line: suddenly V-shaped bodies turn into apples and parallel lines become circles.

Natureís Little Twist Lowering High Triglycerides Naturally: Catalog

Both men and women tend to put on weight, although in different parts of the body. Men tend to grow fat around the stomach and women on their hips, thighs and bottoms.

However, the fat that women accumulate on hips and thighs is not dangerous to healthóbut itís almost impossible to lose. The fat that men accumulate on stomachs is much more dangerous to healthóbut easier to get rid off.

How? A beer belly could have a lot to do with beer, which - like most alcohol - is oozing with calories. But thatís only part of the story. Researchers have found that apart from adding calories to the diet, alcohol also prevents the burning of fat.

According to a Swiss study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, booze in the blood stream can slow down fat metabolism more than 30 percent. Plus, beer drinkers donít just drink beer - they have it with chips and peanuts, all nibbling their way into the belly, making it bigger and bigger.

If you donít watch it, a belly can quickly inch its way into the cardiac zone of horrors: hypertension, diabetes, heart attacks. All of which of course makes you want to cry into your beer. And then denies you the beer to cry into.

The Binge Belly (New Study) Lowering High Triglycerides Naturally: Catalog

According to a new U.S. study on how drinking alcohol affects the accumulation of abdominal fat, or 'central adiposity' - an important risk factor for cardiovascular diseases - binge drinking is more responsible for beer bellies than beer itself. Therefore, the unhealthy beer belly, or Ďbeer gutí, might be better known as a 'binge belly.'

This comprehensive, epidemiological study, involving 2,343 randomly selected men and women aged between 35 and 79, has found those who drank small amounts of alcohol regularly had the smallest beer bellies, while sporadic but intense drinking - involving more than three to four drinks on each occasion - resulted in the biggest bellies, stomachs sagging over the belts.

The researchers collected information on how much and how often people had drunk during the past 30 days, what type of alcohol it was and whether they drank it with or without food.

What they have found is that men and women who drank infrequently but heavily had more abdominal fat than people who consumed the same amount but drank regularly. In other words, the more drinks per drinking day, the higher the abdominal measurement.

Definitely, the way we drink is as important as the amount of alcohol we consume and binge drinking is an unhealthy way of consuming alcohol. It does not mean, however, that persons with abdominal fat should start drinking.

Also the type of alcohol consumed seems to make a difference: wine drinkers had the lowest abdominal height and drinkers of spirits had the highest. And strong spirits were much more likely than beer to cause beer bellies.

It should be added that, despite their huge bellies, men often have very thin arms and legs, Unfortunately, the abdominal fat causing the problem in this condition lies not only under the skin, but also in the internal cavity of the abdomen itself.

The study was funded by a grant from the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

Excess Weight as Disease Lowering High Triglycerides Naturally: Catalog

There is a common misconception Ė shared by both patients and doctors - that excess weight is nothing to worry about until high blood pressure and poor cholesterol develop, and those can then be treated with medications.

Obesity has not been hyped. In fact, it should be defined as a disease - a real public health crisis.

Middle-aged people who are obese - or grossly overweight - are over 40 percent more likely than normal-weight people to die of heart disease. They are also four times as likely to be hospitalized for heart disease.

As pointed out by researchers and obesity experts, fat tissue is not like an inert storage depot. It is a very dynamic organ that is actually producing hormones and chemical messengers. And even without elevating blood pressure or cholesterol, these substances can

  • damage blood vessels
  • increase the risk of blood clots and
  • cause insulin resistance that makes people prone to diabetes.

In other words, being too fat causes cardiovascular problems and excess weight alone is an independent risk factor for heart attacks, strokes and diabetes.

So, if you are an overweight middle-aged individual with normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels you are kidding yourself if you think your health is just fine. You need to pay strict attention to your weight even if you do not have an unhealthy risk factor profile yet.
