WHR measures the proportion of fat stored around your waist in relation to the fat stored around your hips. The formula for WHR is waist divided by hip, in either inches (inch) or centimeters (cm). Since this calculation is a ratio, it doesn't matter which units you use as long as they are consistent. It is a simple and useful measurement of fat distribution, and people can be categorized into two types by their fat distribution.

* Pear-shaped type: people who carry extra weight around the hips and thighs, and store their body fat around their hips considered pear-shaped.
Measure the waist at the narrowest point, usually just above the belly button, and the hips around the widest part of the hip bones by using a measuring tape. Make sure the measuring tape is level around the body, parallel to the floor, and tighten the measuring tape so it is not depressing the skin at all.
