The formula for the calculator is based on average figures for this type of waist-to-height calculation. One of the simplest ways is by taking photos of yourself in a bathing suit each week and tracking your progress. Forget the numbers on the scale. The mirror test will tell you much more. Look into a mirror with your clothes off and look at the level of body fat around your stomach, hips and thighs.

I am a 6 feet 4 inch tall guy and even with my waist being 40 inches, this calculator tells me I am at a healthy and normal weight. My waist is currently around 37 inches which I feel is just right. I am neither fat nor skinny, but normal. When my waist was larger and I was fatter, it was around inches and I felt fat.

Anyone can do it once you make the commitment to yourself! I think you have a great website, but I would take age into consideration with your calculator. I read that age affects the desired number.
