You will take a longer time and need extra effort to reduce weight. Although it can be done, it is a constant battle for you because you are fighting what nature has given you.



? Mesomorph: You are blessed with a naturally muscular body and have wide shoulders, small waist, athletic body frame structure, average to low body fat with a somewhat high metabolism.


You are the type that will not take a long time to see your body fat melt away even when you are overweight. When you train, eat and rest correctly you will visibly see your body fats melt away week after week right before your eyes.



? Ectomorph: You are the skinny type with small muscles, very very high metabolism, narrow shoulders, hips and waist. You are the type that must gain weight instead of reducing weight. However, your type is also known to slowly gain weight when you age because your metabolism starts to slow down and thus burning less calories.



Most people fall in between the three types. For example, a person can be a mixture of Mesomorph and Endomorph or Mesomorph and Ectomorphs.
