Pear shaped Women, read this

If you are Pear shaped, that is, carrying excess fat around your hips, chances are you find it difficult to lose weight

. US researches carried out a study on women between the ages of 65 and 79, and they found that women who are pear shaped are more likely to suffer memory loss or dementia during their life.

Diana Kerwin, the researcher, has explained that it is the wrong type of fat, but added that obesity is bad wherever the fat is located, as apple shaped women may fare better with this study, but excess fat around the waist has been linked to heart attacks and strokes.

After the menopause, the metabolism slows down , and it is very difficult to lose weight, wherever it is situated. So all we can do is try to eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and hope that we have good strong healthy genes to carry us gracefully through to old age.
