Different body types have different requirements and this is where it gets tricky
The trick is this..knowing YOUR body type
Diets based on the same amount of calories, but different proportions of fat, protein and carbohydrates, result in different amounts of weight loss depending on your body type
Here are the body types:
Ectomorph – thin skinny limbs- endurance exercise
Mesomorph – Naturally muscular & athletic – bodybuilding/relative strength exercise
Endomorph –Naturally broad & thick – Absolute strength exercise
Yes you can belong to 2 categories & you can be a combination type.
Ever wonder why some people can eat all day long whatever they want and load on the carbs with no sight of FAT near by?
By knowing your body type you can curve your nutrition and work with your system instead of trying to fight that FAT : (
For example, an ectomorph can eat tons of carbs without a hint a fat showing up.
A mesomorph, would have to balance between protein, carbs & fats almost equally.
And an endomorph, will have to eat a substantially higher dosage of healthy fats to lose weight.
As you can see like an orange cant be a banana and vice versa, neither can you. This is your genetic disposition and if you are born this way you will stay this way.
However, what you CAN do is sculpt yourself into the best fruit in your bunch.
Until the next…
