( CNN) Going to your doctor may soon seem more like going to your tailor. Instead of beginning with the a request to step on a scale, he or she may measure your waist.

That’s because a new survey concludes that excess belly fat, even if you are skinny everywhere else, may be even more deadly than being obese or overweight.

And that’s saying something when you know that being obese already increases your likelihood of having a heart attack, a stroke, diabetes or even cancer.

In other terms, your beer belly is a possibility killing you.

As of now, the guidelines to manage obesitytell your doctor to look at your body mass index, the measure of body fat utilizing a calculation based on your height and weight. It is possible to have a “healthy” BMI and a slim butt, arms and legs. But if your pants are hard to button, and your low-riders make a muffin top, you should still watch your weight.
