Knowing where you fit in (or if a single body “type” doesn’t describe you) could help determine the best diet and exercise plan for you, some healthcare professionals argue. This is what’s called the body type diet. Proponents of this plan say your body type can give you clues about your metabolism and hormones, and thus how well you process carbohydrates, and how much protein you need.

Phil Catudal, celebrity trainer, saya that daily exercise, diet habits, and even metabolic changes by way of pregnancy and menopause can skew your body type, so you might not recognize what yours is right away. Lifestyle factors could have also changed your body, so that you now are more of a hybrid type.

If you’re unclear about where yours falls, one clue to your body’s more natural metabolic state is what your body looked like when you were a late teen or in your early twenties.There are three main body types said William Sheldon, an american psychologist. Here are some clues, from just your type, to identify where you fall and get ideal:

Ectomorphs are naturally lean and long, and tend to find it trickier to bulk up, but also don’t get fat quickly if they lay off the training. It much needs eating a lot, strength exercise and easy cardio.

Endomorphs are the opposite, with higher levels of body fat, a natural pear shape and the ability to add muscle relatively easily. It is suggested to have interval training, no long running, bulk up shoulders, and cut calories.

In between these two you find mesomorphs who, by a set of totally arbitrary aesthetic standards, could be said to have won the genetic lottery: they have an athletic build, a high metabolism, and add muscle easily. It only needs set goal for exercise, moderate training and eat anything in regular.
