If we had to make two shape categories men would be ‘apples’ and women would be ‘pears.’
Women tend to accumulate excess weight below the waist due to evolution as it helps to protect and help with fertility, pregnancy and the passing on of genes to the next generation.
Men tend to store fat above the waist, which is mostly toxic as unlike women, there is nothing to be gained from it, it’s not like a fat belly will help you hunt for prey.
Fat below the waist is less harmful than above, where it can be a trigger for diabetes and heart disease.
However a man on a low carb diet will almost always lose the weight, as belly fat is not meant to be there, so easily removed.
