Does your body shape influence how you lose weight?

The various feminine body shapes can experience accumulation of fat and weight loss differently

We’re done with shopping for Chinese New Year. And just like any other shopping escapade, it’s always time consuming to search for the perfect outfit simply because we all have different body shapes. For that perfect dress that will make us look stunning, we are sometimes more than often willing to go the extra mile. The same can be said for all of us who want a slim body. For that perfect silhouette, we will go the extra mile with diets, workouts and slimming treatments with little to no guarantee of seeing satisfying results.

Did you know that our different body shapes has a role to play in how we reduce weight? This is because the various shapes have fats distributed at different places throughout our body. Let us take you on a brief rundown on the different body shapes and where the fats are accumulated for you to determine which slimming treatment can help you achieve a healthy slim body.

Body shape | Reduce weight | Slimming Treatment

  1. The Pear- Pear ladies have a smaller top and heavier bottom. Their curves are accentuated by the weight on their thighs and buttocks, hence the name a pear-shaped body. Fats are distributed to the bottom more for ladies with this figure.
  2. The Apple- Apple ladies best forte is her legs. Her bottom will be small but she will have a busty top. Apple ladies gain weight easily at their midsection and arms. Fats will accumulate more at her midsection.
  3. The Ruler- Ruler ladies have a straight body. Their chest, waist and hip measurements are fairly equal with little to no definition around the waistline. Ladies with this body type are usually lean and does not gain weight easily.
  4. The Hourglass- the most coveted body shape for ladies and is sometimes referred to as a ‘genetic gift’. This body gives you shapely curves as your top and bottom will be the same size while your waistline is much smaller. This body’s fats are distributed evenly between their top and bottom and is said to be the top figure looked for in models.
