You’ve probably heard of an hourglass figure at least once if you live in the twenty-first century. The hourglass figure takes its name from the body form of an ancestor of current clocks. Due to so-called “ideal body standards,” this body type appears to be one of the most popular among women. Depending on the metric system you choose, the measures for an hourglass figure are 36-24-36 or 90-60-90, and correspond to your breast, waist, and hips. However, just because your dimensions are larger or lower doesn’t mean you don’t fit into that body type. The fundamental feature of an hourglass form is proportions, so take control of the situation and sculpt your ideal physique. Scientists have discovered that your waist size influences not only your appearance but also your health. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, a woman’s waistline should be no more than (89cm), else it may be hazardous to her health. Such readings could indicate an increase in visceral fat stored inside your abdominal cavity, indicating that it’s time to rethink your current lifestyle. Don’t worry, the appropriate diet and fitness program can save your life. Given the foregoing, why not combine what’s excellent for your health with what’s good for your shape and “work out” your way to a thinner waist?
