Below we compare between Android and Gynoid obesity according to regions and resulting body shape:
Android obesity is characterized by the accumulation of fat cells on the abdominal region which results in an apple-like body shape.
Gynoid obesity is characterized by the accumulation of fat cells on the lower part of the body like thighs and hips which result in a pear-like body shape.
The most indicative of obesity is the body shape, which is the clearest sign, as it appears in the form of an increase in the size of the abdomen, pelvis, buttocks, and thighs, in addition to an increase in fat deposits in the upper part of the body with a noticeable increase in the circumference of the middle of the upper arm.

It is usually difficult for women to lose weight after giving birth and it takes a long time to return to a normal weight. Consecutive pregnancies without time intervals cause pregnancy-induced obesity and women gain abnormally weight even after they give birth.
Obesity may play a pathogenetic role in the development of the syndrome in susceptible individuals. Approximately 50% of PCOS women are overweight or obese.
The best way for women to lose weight is to cut carbs out of their diet and exercise regularly and make this a part of their daily routine.
