The Hip-to-Waist ratio, like the BMI, is another indicator of your body's fat content. But, unlike the BMI, it takes the shape of your body into account when determining your level of health. And, it has been shown that people with "apple-shaped" bodies (with more weight around the waist) face more health risks than those with "pear-shaped" bodies (with more weight around the hips).
