Hip, Waist, Chest Ratio Calculator

This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This calculator is designed to compare the measurements of your waist, hips and chest and give ratio information that can be used by your health professionals to establish a plan for weight loss and to reveal potential health issues. A ration for each combination is calculated. Measure your chest and hips at the largest size area. Do NOT pull the tape measure tight. Measure your waist at the smallest point. (The units can be any measurement factor, so long as ALL measurements are in the same factor.) Enter the 3 values. Our defaults can be used, if appropriate, but are there more for demonstration. When you have made your entries, click on Calculate. Talk to your health professional about the results. Published data suggests that a WHR (waist to hips ratio) of 0.7 for women and 0.9 for men have been shown to correlate strongly with general health and fertility. Women within the 0.7 range have optimal levels of estrogen and are less susceptible to major diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disorders and ovarian cancers. Men with WHRs around 0.9, similarly, have been shown to be more healthy and fertile with less prostate and testicular cancer. A CHR (chest to hips ratio) of less that .8 suggests the possibility of poor circulation and poor exercise habits. A CWR of greater than 1.1 also indicates poor exercise habits and suggests dietary evaluation.
