At any body mass, a waist circumference greater than 33 inches carries additional health risks but is not considered high risk. The exception, of course, is pregnant women. Waist circumference is so important because it reveals how much visceral abdominal fat a woman is carrying around her organs. Visceral fat is different than subcutaneous fat, which is found on the thighs, hips, arms and back, because it feeds directly into the liver via the portal vein.
In caveman days when famine was common, stores of visceral fat were crucial for survival, but now there is little need for excess stores of readily available energy. Also termed the omentum, this deep fat tissue causes metabolic disorders like poor blood sugar control, heart disease, diabetes, and increased risk of breast cancer and gallbladder disease.
Contrary to popular belief, doing situps will not reduce visceral fat. The best exercise for trimming the fat on the inside of your body is regular moderate intensity cardiovascular activity.
Weight training has also been shown to reduce belly fat. Hence, a combination of 30 to 60 minutes per day of cardio and strength training is an effective strategy for maintaining or slimming your waistline.

Jul 10, · That said, I have no god damn idea how you have a 33" waist at 5'9 I am a big dude. Broad shouldered, 6"1, lbs. And I have a 33" waist. You a god damn circle or something, son? Find great deals on eBay for 33 waist. Shop with confidence. I would expect 33" to mean 'the waistband of these jeans measure 33 inches' (so the place where you want it to sit should measure 33", not necessarily your waist), but .
