Eat Right for Your Body Type 

 You've made it this far!

You now understand the different body types and where you specifically fit, in this vast Body Type Universe. 

Now you really want to hone in and maximize the knowledge and diet fundamentals you have gained in order to create the best version of YOU that will last a lifetime. 

Great!!

So let's focus on the best eating methods for each body type. 

It is important to Understand that many of our physical characterstics can be traced to the metabolic differences between individuals.  

Properly identifying your body type allows each and everyone one of us the luxury of adjusting our nutrient intake to maximize our body composition and achieve our health related goals. 

Remember the Three Main Body Types:

 

  • Ectomorph
  • Mesomorph
  • Endomorph

 

Also keep in my mind that very few people fall perfectly into one of the categories. A vast majority of us are a unique mix of these characteristics and body types. 

 

 

 Ectomorphs

 Ectomorphs are typically thin individuals that have smaller bone structure and thinner limbs. They usually have a fast metabolic rate and high corbohydrate tolerance.

This group usually functions best with more carbohydrates in the diet, combined with moderate protein and  lower fat intake. A good distribution for this body type would be 55% carbs, 25% protein, and 20% fat. ( Think "higher carbs" and "lower fat")

 Ectomorph Men should Eat:

  • 2 fists of vegetables at each meal.
  • 3 cupped handfulls of carb dense foods at each meal.
  • 1 thumb of fat dense foods at each meal.

  • 0.5 thumb of fat dense foods at each meal.

Mesomorphs 

Mesomorphs have medium sized bone structure and an athletic body. An active mesomorph will have a good amount of lean muscle mass as well. Explosive athletes such as Reggie Bush and Serena Williams fit this criteria. Mesomorphs tend to be testosterone and growth hormone dominant. This physical compostion makes it easier for them to gain muscle and maintain lower body fat levels.

 Mesomorphs Thrive on a Mixed Diet. This consists of a balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. An effective nutrient split for this group would be 40% carbohydrates, 30 % protein, and 30% fat.

 Endomorphs

Endomorphs have larger bone structure with higher amounts of total body mass and fat mass. Power Lifters and Football Linemen are often great examples of endomorphs.  They tend to be less active then their ectormorph counterparts, resulting in excess calories being often stored as fat. This also means a lower carbohydrate tolerance.

Endomorphs usually function best with a higher fat and protein intake, combined with controlled and properly timed carbohydrate intake (ex. after exercise).  More fat and protein. Less Carbohydates!

An Excellent distribution for this body type would be around 25% carbs ,35% protein and 40% fat. Don't get caught up in the exact numbers. Just focus on higher fats and proteins and lower carbs.
