Pear vs Apple
Girls...have you ever think that having a PEAR SHAPE BODY is such a BLESSING IN DISGUISE.
Don't believe me...here's the proof : )
As we all know, fat will be deposited more at the thigh, hips and tummy in pear shape body hence giving them the pear-shaped look.
But for those who are blessed with apple shape body, fat storage will be more likely to settle at the abdominal area and upper part of the body including vital organs (especially heart and liver).
This surely makes them more likely to develop diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and certain types of cancer etc. etc. etc.
So theoretically, these women will have higher health risk compared to the other type.
In fact studies suggest that fat cells in the upper part of the body seems to have different qualities from those found in the lower parts. I don't really get this part, I think it may be related to storage of fat around vital organs.
I'm fully aware that this is not the type we really want, hour glass is what we covet for...but think again. They may save you from so much unwanted health problems and add years to your life : )
So girls, before you start chanting curses for having such gigantic hips and butt, or when you can't fit into your skinny jeans anymore, just think of how much it can do for you.
Flaws and all girls xoxo
