A lady who has a pear shaped body is bottom heavy, that is, she has a broader lower body as compared to the upper body. This kind of figure looks perfect on the top, but bulky at the bottom. Women with these kinds of figures have fat accumulation around the hips, buttocks and thighs. So their workouts should be concentrated more on the lower body.

Apple and Pear Shapes

"They should do a lot of exercises which emphasize on the lower body like skipping, cycling, jumping jacks, leg press and side leg raises. They should eat lots of vegetables, fruit and proteins like egg whites, chicken and fish," says fitness expert from Mumbai, Deanne Pandey.

Interesting item. Should have more discussion on so called Indian Diet. Cabohydrate rich diet is responsible for the body shape.

..."Most Indians tend to have an apple shaped body, because of their wrong diet which is mostly fried and sugary stuff.. They have a huge, bulging tummy, and a heavy frame."..... what is wrong with the indian diet?? 'fried and sugary stuffs' are just part of the amazing plethora of indian cuisine. now what u chose from this wide range of food possibly decides your body shape.the indian diet must not take the blame for laziness and indifference. huger bulging tummies and much heavier frames are seen world wide. so instead of prototyping, focus on facts to create awareness!!
