## Waist To Hip Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the waist to hip ratio.

W-H = W/H

- Where W-H is the ratio
- W is the waist circumference (in)
- H is the hip measurement (in)

In this case, the formula is a simple division since the resulting value is just a ratio of one measure to another.

In general a larger waist to hip ratio means a higher body fat. That’s because while the hip measurement on a human rarely changes, the waist measurement increases as your body fat increases. This is due to the simple fact that human bodies store fat in the waist.

As mentioned previously the, since the human body does not store fat typically directly on the hips, the hips circumference measurement is not significant. It’s also important to note that this ratio can be highly influenced by genetics, so it does not make much since to compare ratios from person to person. It’s better to use the ratio as a gauge for losing or gaining body fat.
