Small pepper type (or slim type). Dr. Sawad pointed out that people with small peppers have no obvious body curves, ie hips, waist circumferences and shoulder widths are close. Once they get fat, they will be mainly in the middle of the body, such as the abdomen, so there is a risk of heart disease and diabetes. American nutritionist Cochran pointed out that such people should eat more fish, olive oil, nuts, and lean protein foods.
People with capsicum type should consume a lot of lean protein such as eggs for breakfast, fiber supplements such as green vegetables for lunch, and fish and beans for dinner. Snacks suitable for the shape of peppers are: yogurt, raisins, almonds, etc.
Pear shape. As the name suggests, the pear shape is the body of the lower half of the body and the narrow body of the upper part. The fat is mainly concentrated in the buttocks and thighs. For this type of body, losing weight is a daunting task, especially for married women, the fat in the buttocks and thighs is more difficult to get rid of. Despite this, the pear shape has a unique advantage: the rate of heart disease and diabetes decreases as fat rarely accumulates in the abdomen.
For dietary choices, pear-shaped people should be based on complex carbohydrate foods such as whole-grain foods, beans, chicken, fruits and vegetables, which are good for excreting excess fat. Eat more whole grains, such as oatmeal, for breakfast. The balance of lunch is balanced. The best match is whole wheat bread, moderate amount of lean beef and vegetables. You can eat some chicken for dinner. Snacks suitable for pear shape are: apple, dark chocolate, whole wheat biscuits.
Apple shape. Apple-shaped people have a wide middle part, and the lower limbs are often slender, which is easier to lose weight. However, the wide waistline poses a threat to health and accumulates fat around vital organs such as the kidneys, pancreas, and liver, thereby increasing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and breast cancer. Apple-shaped body should eat more unsaturated fatty foods such as nuts and olive oil that are good for the heart. Also control the intake of carbohydrates, eat more foods rich in cellulose, slow down the body’s digestion of sugar, reduce insulin and cholesterol levels. Apple-shaped breakfast should pay attention to balance, eat more staple food for lunch, and eat moderately beans and vegetables for dinner. Snacks suitable for apple-shaped body are: pear, blueberry, peanut butter and so on.
