Waistline Calculator

Grab a tape measure – and measure your life expectancy!

OK, we can’t literally measure your life expectancy with a tape measure - but research has shown a link between waist-to-height ratio and life expectancy. Keeping your waist circumference to less than half your height can mean a longer life by helping to prevent the onset of conditions such as stroke, heart disease and diabetes…and therefore, add years to your life.

So grab a tape measure and see how you measure up and don’t forget to watch this Sunday 9.30pm.

TIP: If you don't have a vinyl tape measure use a piece of string!
