# Broca-Formula

Paul Broca has invented a easy formular to calculate normal weight. Subtract 100 from your body size in cm to get the value. Reduce it again for 10% to get ideal weight.

## Example:

Body size = 175 cm
Normal weight = 175-100 = 75 kg
Ideal weight = 75 - 10% = 67.5 kg

# Waist-Hip-Ratio (WHR)

To get your Waist-Hip-Ratio you have to measure the circumference of your waist and of your hip. Then divide the waist measurement throught the hip measurement.

### FORMULA:

Waist circumference divided through hip circumference
The result should be 1.0 or lower for men and 0.85 or lower for women. Higheer values mean a higher risk for coming down to a consequence for over weight.

How to measure:
For waist circumference measure at the high of your belly button. For hip circumference measure at the thickest point of your bottom.
