How to Lose Weight for Your Body Type ...

You might think that losing weight is the same kind of process for each individual person, but it isn’t always as simple as that. Believe it or not, the way in which you lose weight can actually be affected a lot by what your natural body type happens to be.

Here is how to lose weight, according to your own body type.

1. Ectomorph

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You are an ectomorph if you tend to be long-limbed and not overly muscular. You might have heard the term β€˜skinny fat’ thrown around before. This kind of body type is usually better off using resistance training to build strength. As for your diet, you should be focusing on getting good quality fats in your body, along with good quality carbohydrates. Breakfast should be your most important meal of the day.

2. Mesomorph

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You are a mesomorph if you find it very easy to build muscle mass and are generally very well built proportion wise. You gain weight easily but that also means that you can lose is easily as well if you do the right things. Your body responds well to short bursts of activity to get the metabolism going, so high intensity interval training in the perfect thing for you. Limit your carb consumption and focus more on lean proteins that can help to kick start your metabolism and keep you feeling fuller for longer.

3. Endomorph

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You are an endomorph if you have a generally rounder and softer body overall, with a higher tendency to store fat naturally rather than burn it. Your metabolism is not great if you have this body type, so you need to make a conscious effort to speed it up. Lots of protein with very little carbohydrates. Drink lots and lots of water, and in terms of exercise, you should look in to something heavy duty like CrossFit!
