Body shape: Triangular

  • This is a very good shape to be.
  • These women have broad shoulders and narrow waist
  • Triangular types are often labelled as having a swimmer’s body.
  • With their large proportion of muscle and good height to weight ratio, the triangular shape has a high metabolism and does not gain fat easily.
  • However, if they eat a diet laden with fat, they will be making themselves prone to heart disease.
  • Those with a triangular shape tend to have a very hard-working adrenal gland, so they are very active and prone to cravings for instant energy-giving  snacks
  • A low calorie, low fat diet will help them lose excess weight

Body shape: Apple

  • Most likely to develop with age.
  • This shape is the most worrisome one. Fat tends to gather around the waist, giving a barrel-like tummy. The vital factor with fat is its location.
  • In this body type, fat is stored around the organs medically called visceral fat.
  • This type of fat constantly breaks down and circulates in the blood, giving a higher risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.
  • Apple shapes tend to crave starchy, flour-based foods, such as bread, as well as high-fat spicy foods and salty wheat snacks.
  • This body type is prone to diabetes, stroke, IBS and digestive problems, constipation and water retention.
  • Often this body type benefits from cutting wheat from their diet, as this mediates blood sugar levels and also lessens bloating.
  • Any type of aerobic activity will help. Swimming is perfect, and weight training would help, too.
  • They are better suited to a high-protein diet with minimal carbohydrates and plenty of fiber.

Body shape: Pear

  • This classic shape, bemoaned by women worldwide, is prone to accumulating fat around their bottom and thighs.
  • It’s much healthier to be a Pear than an Apple.
  • Fat deposits on the hips are less likely to travel around the body, reducing the risk of heart disease, angina and diabetes.
  • However, carrying extra weight on the hips can lead to osteoarthritis, and fat is more likely to appear as cellulite.
  • Pear-shaped physiques crave sweet-creamy or starchy foods.
  • Exercise that will work the major leg muscles, such as running or power walking will help reduce the fat around their hips and thighs.
