    Noob waist measurement for guys

    Primal Fuel
    For those of us with a bit of a gut, do you measure your waist around your belly button or down around your hips? If the guideline for reduced risk of metabolic syndrome is to get under a 40" waist, where exactly is this? I wear my belt around my hips (i.e. my "waist"), not up by my bellybutton Fred Murtz style. Thoughts?

    Be honest with yourself. The measure should be parallel with the ground
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    Yes, parallel to the ground, but how high relative to belly button?

    I disagree with sticking your gut out like the video shows. I think it should just be a natural pose -- no inhaling or exhaling or abnormal contortion.
