New Tool Calculates Belly Fat

Most Americans know that unwanted weight and obesity have negative health consequences, especially if the weight is centered around a person’s midsection. A new tool, called “A Body Shape Index” or ABSI, calculates your relative risk of premature death based on your belly fat and age. If you go to www-ce.ccny.cuny.edu/nir/sw/absi-calculator.html and put in the required information you will determine your risk. Less than 1 indicates less risk, 1 is average risk and over a 1 is a greater risk. If you score greater than a 1, it might be time to hit the gym and start a healthy balanced diet!
