The Adrenal Body Type (Pear Shape) Profile And How to Fix it.

I am so happy I came across this info as I was doing research for some irritating symptoms I had lately, which made me almost think I might have diabetes. I was so surprised that my body type "The Pear Shape" is Fat Protein Efficient, Adrenal Body or even Gonad Type.  If you want to know your body type take the Dr.Eric Berg Quiz.

The life-saving info was about creating a meal plan/lifestyle for my specific body type. What happens when you eat for your body type? You give your body the right types of foods at the right time. Bigger meals when your metabolism is highest and you will more easily burn it off and smaller meals when your metabolism is lowest. You learn exactly what foods to avoid and what to eat more of. How to balance your glands hormones so that the weight comes off easily! 

Here is some info from Bodytypology about the pear shape woman: 

Physical Traits

The Pear Body Type may often exclaim, “Why do I always gain weight There!” You tend to gain weight on the lower body, the sides of the upper thighs, the bum, you are pear-shaped. The lower body is bigger, the upper body is small to medium-sized.  The back slightly curved in, the buttocks are predominant. Cellulite is usually present in the lower parts of the body and has usually been there for a long time. 

Energy Levels

The Pear Body Type is sometimes more of a night owl than a morning person. Although they need more sleep than any other types. You have the stable energy (unless consuming too much sugar). As the day progresses your energy increases. Those that have low blood sugar or hypoglycemia will tend to have an energy crash around 4 PM. If you do have hypoglycemia you need to follow the Thyroid Type plan until the sweet cravings are controlled. You can get your second wind around 9 or 10 PM at night and go to bed late, sometimes staying up until 2 AM, but many are in bed by 10 or 11. 

Your type is not as strong as the others and you need to go at your own pace. You are slow moving and it is best for you to follow this slow pace. While you may be known as the weakest of the four types your energy will last the longest.

Personality Traits

This is the gland of affection, emotion, attention, altruism, kindness, harmony, goodness, generosity and empathy. You have strong values, courage, and willpower. 

The Pear Body Type is known for your warmth, love and genuine interest in others. You love to take care of others, the motherly type, the maternal instinct is very strong, and this distinguishes you from the other types. 75% of all nurses are Gonad Types, social workers, teachers, naturopaths, the helping professions. 

Being in a relationship is very important to you as is having children. While the Thyroid Type can’t wait to get out after having a baby, the Gonad Types are in their glory at home, love breastfeeding for a lengthy period and being a mom. You love the responsibility. The home and land are very important to you and you prefer not to travel for too long. 

You are hard-working, perseverant and patient. You have a high sense of responsibility and organization. We can count on you, you are very reliable. You do not like confrontations; you find them a waste of time. When there is a conflict (which may be rare as you normally disallow conflict) you have a good sense of justice and a way to balance things out. You tend to do a little too much for others and it can become stifling at times for your children or those you care for. You tend to be overly concerned for the welfare of your children. You dislike superficial things and competition. 

You love to talk about life, exchange with others, share. You can project 20 years into the future, no problem. 

What stresses you; competition, superficial relationships, or relationships that are not harmonious, changes in the program, financial risks, lack of order. You tend toward burn out at work because you work so hard. When your children leave home it is very hard on you. 

You would do well by letting go, learning to live and let live, think more about yourself. The Pear body type usually takes care of others, ( they love to do this) and has a hard time taking care of herself!

Food Cravings

The Pear Body Type has cravings after dinner and at night more than at other times of the day.

The cravings include:

Spicy foods, Mexican food
Fatty foods
Fried foods
Butter, cream
French fries, chips
Salty foods
Red meat
Cold cuts
Red Wine
Rosé sauces, creamy sauces, creamy salad dressings    
Cravings around 10 PM indicate a feeling of lacking and wanting someone to take care of you, especially if you feel your partner is not giving you enough attention. Go and get a hug, instead of eating!

Common Ailments

Typical problems related to the reproductive organs, gynecological troubles and the lymphatic system. PMS, mastitis, infertility, fibroids, breast cysts or uterine cysts or tumors, endometriosis, menstrual problems, organs that descend and constipation.  You tend to have cellulite, varicose veins, leg pain, swelling, heaviness, swollen ankles, overweight. 

You may tend towards burn out as you neglect yourself by taking care of others. You tend to have congestion, a lack of circulation in your body, your veins and your life. 

Doing a detox is important for you to eliminate the toxins that you accumulate more easily than others. You need to get your blood circulating.
