The Waist-Hip ratio (WHR) measures the proportion of fat stored around your abdomen and hip area. In general, an apple shape (extra weight stored mainly around the abdomen) carries higher health risk including heart disease compared to a pear shape (extra weight stored mainly at the hips).
Your WHR value gives a rough indication of your overall health risk. For a more complete analysis, take into consideration other important measurements like Body Mass Index (BMI)
and body fat percentage
