Shakeology Day 1 Refresh
Here goes. I'm starting at 171 lbs. Sigh
At least being pear shaped means I am at less risk for all the diseases that have me wanting to lose weight in the first place.
I used SparkPeople to help me get my measurements, because in all honesty, I have never taken them before and I wanted to make sure I was measuring the right areas.
Result: Estimated Health Risk: Estimated Body Shape: 0.80 or below Low Pear
Since storing excessive fat in the abdominal region (known as the "apple" shape) is correlated with an increased disease risk, this test is one way to measure your risk for lifestyle and weight-related diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease and more. Storing fat in your lower half, known as a "Pear" shape, is actually a healthier site for fat accumulation. The less common "avocado" shape is somewhere between an apple and a pear, with health risks higher than a pear-shaped person, but somewhat lower than a true apple-shaped person.
