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

Result:Estimated Health Risk:Estimated Body Shape: 0.81 to 0.85ModerateAvocado
   

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.

Hi Ludam!  Nice to see you!

I got curious so looked up a site - but they didn't have names of shapes.

I'm right at the .8 mark. Without sucking my waist in lol

Hi Diana.  Nice to see you, too.

I got this one at sparkpeople website.  Apparently , they use other fruit shapes in addition to the usual apple & pear.  Avocado made sense for me.
