5 Ways To Identify YOUR Body Type to Lose Weight in 2012

It's 2012. You look in the mirror, again, and you don't like what you see.

You're overweight and/or have a muffin top.

You have back fat that is unattractive especially in your clothes.

You are getting older and are putting on more pounds than you would like.

Your dress size is going up.

If you're a man, your pant sizes are going up and you need to loosen your belt. Or, you are losing your muscle tone, getting flabbier, and can't maintain a healthy weight.

You have tried every diet, group, club, and pretty much everything or everyone else. Nothing has worked.

Enter the Health Coach and an amazing philosophy to weight control, body typing. You see, until you establish the foundation for your weight issues, you will not conquer those issues and get success. Your metaphysical foundation has to be established. To just go on some type of diet is not and never will be enough. You need to find out what type of body you have and eat accordingly.

In order to do this, you will need to do these 5 things, and your health coach can help you do just that.

First, identify whether you are an Ectomorph, Endomorph or Mesomorph.
ECTOMORPHS are thin framed, have little or no muscle mass, fast metabolisms, trouble gaining weight and are evenly proportioned
ENDOMORPHS are most of us, gain weight easily, have slower metabolisms, and are not evenly proportioned and are prone to an accumulation of fat.
MESOMORPHS are the luckiest of the three types because they are more fit and lean naturally, with more muscle tone and lose whatever fat they accumulate easily.
Easy; and basic, right? By now you may be asking, "but I h ave some characteristics of more than one of these types, so which one most fits me?"

So here is how you determine which type most fits you.

Take a tape measure and measure your chest to waist to hip ratio. If you are pretty evenly proportioned you are an ECTOMORPH, and your nutrition should be based on a good quality higher fat, high complex carbohydrate program to gain pounds and build muscle. This should be partnered with the right exercise and resistance training program.

If you are an ENDOMORPH, then you are more an apple (weight in the mid-section), or a pear (weight in the lower abdomen and upper thigh area) and you should be on a high quality\ low-fat, low complex carb or no carb program (initially) to speed up your metabolism to lose weight and build muscle tone.

The lucky MESOMORPHS can pretty much write their own ticket, healthfully, eating more protein, complex carbs and more small meals (or snacks) to sustain their quick metabolisms.

More specific nutritional and exercise programs should be formulated for each type and for each individual on a case-by-case basis for optimum results.

By beginning your health & wellness programs in this manner you can really get a handle on how to do that by knowing who you are. And that is truly how you lose those handles you really want to lose.
