Are you a hunter or a farmer?

According to  Mark Liponis, M.D., author of The Hunter/Farmer Diet Solution your body type reveals your dietary needs. Are you an apple-shaped hunter or a pear-shaped farmer?  I’m an apple, all the way and…I recently discovered (not through reading this book, though…now I want to read it) that eating like a “hunter” did help me achieve my weightloss and fitness goals. I am, literally, eating the EXACT opposite of what I had been eating for a dozen years and I’ve seen a 12-pound weight loss with virtually zero effort (definitely running less than ever now). How about them apples?
