Each person has a different body type. It is greatly beneficial to know one’s body type. This knowledge allows you to understand your body well and stops you from comparing your body with others. There are three different body types called ectomorph, mesomorph, and endomorph.
Here, you will learn a few necessary facts about the third type associated with gaining weight.
The physical appearance
People who face difficulties losing weight and gain quickly are the ones who fall under this category. These people are generally heavy and have a round body structure, but they need not be obese. The muscles on their bodies are usually soft and not firm.
Visually speaking, their bone structure is medium-large with shorter limbs and small shoulders. Although endomorph gains weight quickly, it is not equally distributed. Instead, it can be noticed in their lower abdomen, thighs, and hips. It also does not have any side effect.
The people with this body type have a hard time forming muscles and losing the excess fat since they are sensitive to insulin and carbohydrate. When they consume high carbs, instead of burning down, they get converted to sugar in their bloodstream and get stored as fat. These people usually end up developing heart and gallbladder conditions along with diabetes and hypertension due to this metabolic behavior.
Being sensitive to insulin and carbohydrate comes with several restrictions. These people need to be extra careful while taking their meals. It is best to have a good nutrition plan with macronutrients distributed equally with carbohydrates. They should stay far from bread, cookie, and cereals and focus mainly on vegetables and quinoa.
No one should look down on themselves even if you have a different body type than your friends. Your friends might be an ectomorph or a mesomorph, and hence they are completely different from you. You should not compare yourself with anyone and wonder why you cannot have their body. Just focus on your own and look for healthy ways that suit your body type. If required, talk to a nutrition expert, or get a trainer.
