A certain amount of fat is essential for normal functioning of the body. It is the main form of the body's energy storage. Fat regulates body temperature and cushions and insulates organs and tissues.

The waist to hip ratio (WHR) is the ratio of the circumference of the waist to that of the hips. It is one of the major factors determining the overall health of a person and his/her susceptibility to various diseases. WHR is used as a measurement of obesity, which in turn is an indicator of other more serious conditions. Health risks associated with weight gain mainly depend on where you put on weight. Gaining weight on the thighs and hips is not as unhealthy as gaining weight on the belly.

Measure the circumference of your waist where it is the smallest or an inch above the belly button. For determining the circumference of your hip, measure the widest circumference at the buttocks.

A finger nail or a toe nail, once broken from the base, takes about six months to grow fully. However, in normal circumstances, your finger nails grow four times as fast as your toe nails.
