How Fast does fat move to your waist? Researchers at Oxford University have discovered the fat in foods can be converted into tissue around the plumpest parts of the body within hours.

What to do about weight loss: The Oxford team also found that fit people have an easier time getting rid of unwanted fat, since exercise gives a long-term boost to fat-burning mechanisms.

How to Measure your fitness: Dr Margaret Ashwell told the European Congress on Obesity in Lyon, France, that keeping waist circumference to half one’s height would help increase life expectancy.
