Just did the waist-to-hip ratio calculation & my result is below. I'm an avocado! It makes sense to me,because I always felt that I wasn't a true apple or a true pear. That's because I'm an avocado. Duh! lol
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.
