Poll is private, and is NOT set to display all users who voted, and what choice they voted for. The Picture below is an example of an extreme apple-shaped body and an extreme pear-shaped body.
Occurs mostly in men where most of the fat is on the upper body, the arms, chest, and belly, with less weight gain on the lower body.
When you have a huge upper body, you may have to buy your shirts from either King Size or Casual Male XL, but if you have a small butt and skinny legs, then you can still get your pants or shorts from any Walmart or K-Mart, so your clothes will be much cheaper. Because of your massive upper body, and huge round belly hanging down over the waistband of your shorts, your shirts may not completely cover your belly and your pants or shorts my tend to slide down on your butt, so a lot of apple-shaped guys go around showing off their belly-buttons and the upper half of their butts in public. If you have big round hips, a big fat ass, a huge groin area or lower abdomen below the belt, and great big thighs, you will have to buy extra extra large pants from a Casual Male XL or King Size. Also, Baby Huey is apple-shaped with a huge and massive upper body, small butt, and thin legs.
Of course, fat distribution is mostly determined by genetics, so just work with what you have, what nature has given you and go on from there. The one by Khato is the type of drawings that were done on the older computers with only 16 color graphics. We are now well into the New Year, and with that comes all the promises that many of us make to lose weight and eat more healthily.
In 2011, I started training in February (once the snow had gone!) and gradually built my way up to 15km runs in the summer. My presumption is that over the months up to June, I would have lost a fair amount of body fat, as I lost the best part of 28 pounds in weight during those months. I have been seeing my physio for a few months now, and the original prescription was to stop trying to run altogether, and then to build up extremely slowly while all the knots and kinks are worked out of my legs. With a notional body fat percent of 34%, my plan over the Christmas holidays was to try and design a plan that would quickly and effectively allow me to reduce my fat content and weight, in a healthy and sustainable way. Diet – eating the right foods is extremely important, and this can include calorie-counting if needed, in order to control portion sizes.


Exercise – people are increasingly catching on that exercise needs to go alongside diet if lasting and effective weight loss is to be achieved.
Nutrient Timing – this is a component of body fat loss that is generally completely lost on most people, and often is the domain of elite and serious athletes. I should say though that I lost a reasonable portion of body fat and 4 pounds in weight during week 1. I’m really looking forward to seeing my running and my times improve as I abandon my blubber. In some extreme case, weight gain may appear on the upper body only with little or no weight gain on the lower body.
Weight gain is mostly on the lower body, the lower abdomen or groin area, the hips, butt, and thighs.
Of course we really don't have much choice in the matter since fat distribution is mostly determined by genetics, but diet and exercise dose have some influence. Having a big butt and thunder-thighs is relatively harmless compared to having massive amounts of upper body fat.
Super size pants are very expensive, so pear-shaped men will have to pay more for their clothes than apple-shaped men. I had to suffer very early on, as my running shoes felt a bit dodgy and left me with hip pain. Unfortunately, my evolution running must have gradually devolved into some weird lazy variant where most of my forward propulsion was initiated solely from the calf muscles.
Well, I was resting up for periods of 2-3 weeks at a time, followed by trying running again.
So many people sentence themselves to strict and often ludicrous diet regimes in the New Year, and frankly they are all destined to fail at some point.
It is a fact that people who skip breakfast are normally the ones who have weight problems at some point in their lives.
I am now my own guinea pig, as I test out some of these ideas on myself, and I’ll report the results here on this blog from time to time, as well as any problems, or recipes or whatever else crops up while I get back to fitness after my injuries and bloatedness!


Feel free to follow along with this yourself, but of course, check with your own doctor that it’s right for you before starting! In some extreme cases for example, I once saw a woman who's thighs were bigger around than her chest and she was twice as wide across her hips as she was across her shoulders. So, you'll pay less for your clothing than pear-shaped men, because apple-shape men may need to wear big shirts, but they still wear small pants. This meant I was destined to break down and get injured eventually, and this is exactly what happened in June, with a strained popliteus muscle in my left knee. If you starve yourself calorificaly, your basal metabolic rate (BMR) slows down almost exactly calorie for calorie.
But it is also important to eat at the right times throughout the day, especially in relation to your exercise routines. Anyway, I promised myself that I would change my form and get the hips more involved, leading to my evolution to, well, Evolution running as developed by triathlon and cycling coach Ken Mierke.
This never fixed itself, but became bearable for running after a couple of months, at which time I promptly strained my right calf in the soleus muscle. This went on for a few months, and at that point I got myself a body fat analyzer and measured my lard-content at 27%. Eating within an hour or so of a good workout helps to shepherd those calories into useful areas, such as replenishing muscle and liver glycogen stores, and helping strengthen and build muscles – rather than filling up those pesky fat cells!
Thing is, with your BMR now lower than before, and with less lean muscle mass to burn off excess calories, you will sadly probably end up fatter than you were to start with!
