Apples and Pears: Losing Weight with a Pear Shape Body vs. an Apple Shaped Body
You'll find apples and pears female body shape system to be the most straight forward method of identifying your body shape and finding out the specific nutrition and workout routine that will help you lose weight, get and stay healthy.
You will see that apples and pears body shape system is the most practical for an easier, safe weight loss - especially if you don't exercise regularly and are more than 15 pounds overweight.
You might know that apple vs. pear shape body system is based on where you store the extra fat - above the waist, on your upper body or below the waist, on your lower body...
But if you're like most of my coaching clients, you're probably asking... "Why does my body shape and the location of the fat count?"
Here's the answer to your question about apples and pears body shapes.
First, you should know that your specific female body shape is a very accurate predictor of your hormonal, metabolic and emotional health.
Believe it or not, whether you are apple-shaped or pear-shaped makes a lot of a difference - both in your body's physiology AND psychology.
If you have an apple shaped body your metabolism is dramatically different from a woman with a pear shaped body... You assimilate nutrients differently, store the extra calories as fat differently (either subcutaneously or deep in the body, viscerally), and even respond differently to supplements and medications.
Did you know that medical experts have looked for decades into the "apples and pears" body shape connection with various health issues? It's true- this is not a new fad. They have shown that women with an apple body shape are at a greater health risk than women with a pear shape body.
Well, basically, because if there's a significant amount of abdominal (visceral) fat surrounding your internal organs, their normal physiology is greatly impaired, causing a host of metabolic and hormonal issues.
In contrast, if you have a pear shaped body, the extra fat is deposited more obviously - directly under your skin - in and around your hips and thighs and you might have low self-esteem or even develop an eating disorder stemming from body image issues.
So yes, the term "apples and pears" - related to the female body shape - has been around for decades. However, only recently scientists verified the strong connection between these specific body shapes, their different health risks and the corresponding weight loss strategies.
Second, you lose weight differently based on where the extra fat is on your body. This could be a new idea to you, but if you want better results, your weight loss plan (both diet and workouts) should be customized to your body shape.
So how to determine quickly whether you have an apple shaped body or a pear shape body?

Not sure whether you have an apple shaped body or a pear shape body?
Find out by figuring out your waist-to-hip-ratio (WHR)... It's simple, really. Take a measuring tape and do 2 measurements:
your waist circumference, about one inch above your navel
your hip circumference, around your widest area of your lower body
Hold the tape loosely, without applying pressure on your skin and stand up straight, relaxed and without sucking in your tummy.
Next, divide your waist number by your hip number.
