Why do some bodies respond differently to diet and exercise?
Wouldn’t it be nice if we were all created equal? Well, we are but, why did some of us get the short end of the stick (haha, no pun intended my short friends) when it comes to body type? It’s really not fair but, I guess it would be pretty boring if we all fit into the same package when it came to our shapes and sizes!
Truth is, we are all created different and while my best friend in the whole wide world can drink 3 beers and eat almost a whole pizza without a problem on movie night….I can’t button my jeans the next day after such a binge. So, we ask WHY? Why is it so easy for some to gain weight or lose weight? The next question is HOW can we figure out our best strategy for our optimum weight for our body type?
What is your body type and what does it mean?
Everyone’s body is unique, and everyone falls into a body type category. This category does not just indicate your particular build but, your physiological response to diet and exercise as well!
There are three types of categories for our bodies: ectomorph, mesomorph and endomorph. The tricky part is you may be a combination of traits from two or all types.
Ectomorph: This is a classification of people who are generally lean and long. They carry a narrow chest with thin arms and legs. They typically have a hard time gaining weight or building muscle mass and have very little fat. This lucky group of people have high metabolisms and have it easy maintaining that slim figure. So, it’s safe to say my skinny mini best friend clearly fits into the category!
Mesomorph: A mesomorph carries an athletic build. They look strong and rectangular. They gain weight faster than an ectomorph but, can maintain more of a fit muscular body much easier than their ectomorph friends. They can easily maintain this build through working out at the gym quite easily.
Endomorph: Endomorphs usually have a short, solid physique with a soft round body. They have a slower metabolism which can cause them to gain weight a little easier. People in this category tend to find it very hard to lose weight.
