You don't need extra cardio and this should be kept to a minimum and only used as needed.

GYNAEOID / PEAR SHAPED BODY TYPE

Curvaceous hips with a tapered, small waist are the prominent features for Gynaeoid women.  They have small to medium shoulders and the breasts vary in size. The hips and thighs curve outwards and weight gain occurs only below the waistline.   Gynaeoid women tend to have a predominance of the female hormone oestrogen, (oestrogen dominance) which targets the uterine region, the hips, thighs and breasts. Excessive oestrogens promote fat deposition around the lower parts of the body as well as cellulite. If weight loss is attempted by following a very low fat low calorie diet, there is a reduction from the breasts, shoulders and arms etc., but alas not from the thighs and buttocks.   Gynaeoid body shapes are characterized by a pear shape, with the body flaring outwards towards the hips and thighs. The buttocks are curved and rounded and the thighs are curved outwards laterally and may touch together on the inside or medial aspect. The bottom has a tendency to droop downwards (posterially) over the back of the thighs. The waist is tapered and smaller than the hips giving a feminine appearance.   Even if obesity occurs, the forearms and shins remain relatively fine and slim with fat tissue accumulating firstly on the thighs, buttocks, breasts and later over the lower abdomen in front of the pubic bones. The bones of the pelvic cavity are wide, thus giving rise to the term “good childbearing hips”.   Diet Suggestions: This group tends to crave foods that combine fats and sugars, which combined in the same foods, will increase the body’s sensitivity to oestrogen, leading to weight gain and perhaps cellulite on the hips, buttocks and thighs.   Avoid creamy foods and dairy; like ice-cream, cream cheese, cheese cake, yogurt and those types of foods.   Eat high-fiber fruit and vegetables, combined with protein to increase satiation and help reduce cravings.   Proteins should be included at each meal or snake on them, to improve the hormonal balance of insulin and glucagons, which helps to control blood sugar levels.   Phytoestrogenic supplements and foods rich in phytoestrogens should be included such as soy beans, alfalfa, parsley, chickpeas, mung beans, whole beans.   Exercise/ Activity: Gynaeoid body shapes benefit from walking, jogging, swimming and cycling.
