Before you can turn on your body’s fat burning potential you need to know your body type specifically. Are you an apple shape, pear shape or do you have the box shape body type.
Dr Jeffrey Morrison has studied the link between metabolism and body types for over 10 years, he explained how the body affects the metabolism. When we were eighteen we could eat anything we wanted and our weight never changed, but with each new decade our metabolism slows down and hormones change.
When we reach our 40’s our metabolism starts changing even more and the hormones keep on getting imbalanced and our body shape changes based on hormones and fat accumulates where the hormones are imbalanced.
Dr. Morrison told Dr. Oz the body shape has a lot to do with which hormones are imbalanced, whether they are too high or too low. Certain hormones will cause fat to accumulate in the hips vs the midsection to all over body fat which could be a predictor for what kind of health problems a person could be at risk for.
Apple Shape Body Type
To be able to burn calories 24/7 for the apple shape who have excess fat around the middle. The apple shape woman as she ages estrogen levels naturally decrease triggering your body to redistribute fat around the mid section. Stress causes cortisol to accumulate fat around the belly which basically suffocates the organs.
According to Dr. Morrison, apples should eat foods low on the glycemic index. One way to do this is by cutting out carbs. Carbs spike blood sugar – so reducing or eliminating them from your diet would prevent this and keep cortisol controlled. The less cortisol, the less belly fat.
Apple shaped women can blast belly fat, turbo charge your metabolism burn calories 24/7 — Apples can replace simple carbs with the following foods:
- Lentils, which are packed with protein and require more energy for the body to break down.
- Red pepper hummus, also rich in protein; the spices can also boost metabolism
- Eggplant makes a great carb substitute. When used in certain recipes, for example an eggplant lasagna, it gives you the same density and texture as pasta.
Pear Shaped Body
If you store fat on your hips, thighs and but you have “junk in the trunk.” Pears carry most of their weight on their lower hips, thighs and butt. Dr Morison says this kind of fat is not as dangerous as belly fat, but it may be more unsightly, as it can become that cheesy, cellulite-type fat that is every woman’s nightmare. And while an apple cannot become a pear, with excessive weight gain, a pear may wind up transforming into an apple.
Apparently women pear shaped body’s are at a higher risk for osteoporosis. During menopause, pears make much weaker estrogen, which is not strong enough to keep calcium in the bones. Other health issues for this type are cellulite, varicose veins, and joint problems.

Box Shape Body Type
If you are an apple and a pear shape, you are “Box” Body Type, this means you have the attributes of both an apple and a pear. Women with the Box shaped body type have health concerns that affects the thyroid gland, and those carrying excess weight with this body type can run a greater risk of experiencing depression, memory loss, high cholesterol and an enlarged heart.
Dr. Morrison tells Dr Oz if you are a box and you are lacking enough thyroid hormones, every cell in the body gets fatter due to a slowing of your overall metabolism. Since the thyroid controls the metabolism, all the body processes are slowed, including digestion, mental clarity, and even absorption of vitamins.
