If you have seen my postings on my blogs and the such. You probably seen how much I eat. Quite a few people have asked me how is it that I am able to maintain my figure. Well aside from exercising and things like that. It’s because I am a MESOMORPH. No not a superhero. You see, there are 3 different body types… ectomorph, mesomorph and endomorph.
The main differences between the three different body types are metabolism speed and bone structure. Let’s look at them one at a time…
Ectomorph – is naturally skinny body type. People with this genetic coding probably have been skinny their entire life. It’s not because they have the greatest workout or diet regimen. It’s because their metabolism is super fast. This gives them the “ability” to eat pretty much whatever they want, pretty much whenever they want, and pretty much never get fat and never gain weight.
The same quick metabolism and genetics that keeps the ectomorph naturally skinny and lean are the same quick metabolism and genetics that makes it extremely hard for an ectomorph to gain weight, and more importantly, gain muscle.
Endomorph – the naturally fat body type. These are the people who could eat half as much as what an ectomorph or mesomorph eats and still gain weight. The endomorph is naturally “big boned” and has what some people might describe as a body that is roundly shaped.
The endomorph has the slowest metabolism of the three different body types and can therefore gain weight the quickest and easiest. This is great for gaining muscle and strength, but terrible for losing and keeping off fat. It’s basically the complete opposite of the ectomorph.
Mesomorph – (which is what I am) is the in betweener. The prototypical athlete, fitness model and bodybuilder. Where the ectomorph and the endomorph both have a positive and negative side, the mesomorph has pretty much the best of both worlds. They gain muscle almost as well as an endomorph, yet can lose fat almost as well as an ectomorph.
In spite of your body type. You can make your body do what you want or need for it to do. You can do this by modifying your diet and your work out. You have to find the right fitness program for you and stick to it. If you have a difficult time figuring this out on your own. You can seek assistance from a nutritionist, doctor, personal trainer etc. These people can help assist you with your goals or health needs.
