Do you or your partner have an excess of body fat around your abdomen? many do in-fact its become normalised in society often due to a change in your lifestyle as you move through your career and the weight starts to creep up, you both probably accept it as normal. I have also come across examples of young adolescents being proud of their “muffin tops” and brag about it at school as a being fashionable.
I can tell you its also dangerous as having a high waist line increases your risk of heart attack by 8 times but just as important is the overall risk to you health of developing several debilitating conditions is around 40%
Your male partner should have a waist of no greater than 40″ if we are looking at a female partner it should be under 35″
There are many reasons why as you move through your lifestyle and career you gain weight but recognising the risk is fundamental if you want to avoid hypertension; leading to heart attack or a stroke. I know you are too busy but being too busy will not be a problem if you develop a health scare; resulting in hospitalisation for tests which may result in a diagnosis you could have avoided.
