There are more than 6 billion people on this earth and every single one of them is unique, nobody shares the same body type. Some may look alike but they have a different cell structure, gene structure, bone structure etc. When it comes to physique there are 3 different body types, a Mesomorph, an Ectomorph and an Endomorph.
Mesomorph – A Mesomorph is naturally lean with small waists, broad/square shoulders, high metabolism, chest dominates over abdominal area and they gain strength and muscle very easily, they are natural born athletes and body builders. They are the genetically gifted.
Ectomorph – Ectomorphs are generally tall and skinny with small joints and waist, they have high metabolisms and maintain extremely low body fat. These are the people that can eat anything and everything all day long and will put on an ounce of body fat. They are hyperactive.
Endomorph – These are the people that work and train hard but still find it difficult to lose weight, an endomorph has a very slow metabolism and stores body fat very easily, most endomorphs are carbohydrate sensitive meaning they can store carbohydrates as body fat very easily, they have wide waists and hips with their waists dominating over their chest. They are the genetically challenged.
Now not everybody is a pure Mesomorph, Ectomorph or Endomorph, some may share a combination of 2 or 3 with one being the dominant type. If you are a pure Endomorph don’t panic, it is not the end of the world, there are ways you can improve and change your body type. No one should blame their genetics for being overweight, weak, out of shape or lazy, you may have been dealt a bad hand but you are in control of the way you look and feel and you can change that anytime.
There is no single perfect diet, training program, or eating plan for everybody due to the fact that everybody’s body type is not the same.
