Luv Me More Boutique Different Body Types

What body type and body shape are you?

There are three different body types classified as Ectomorph, Mesomorph and Endomorph, however, not many people fall into one category, usually, you will be a combination these.

Ectomorph – a lean and angular body shape, long limbs, slender, slim, narrow waist. Ectomorphs can lose weight easily and have lower levels of body fat but find it more difficult to gain lean muscle mass.

Mesomorph – strong athletic body type, muscular build, well-developed shoulders and slim hips Mesomorphs have a faster metabolism than other body types and can lose weight and gain muscle mass easily.

Endomorph – a round body shape, short and tapering limbs, larger boned than other body types, plump/stocky appearance, usually have round faces with larger thighs and hips, small hands and feet and high waist. Endomorphs have higher levels of body fat than other body types but can also easily build muscle. Weight loss is difficult.

Different body types largely depend upon genetics, it is impossible to change your body type, but you can learn to make the best of what you have by toning your body shape. Your body shape is determined by the total balance of your body together with your physical features. For your overall look you need to consider your muscle tone, body fat, and body mass index, the appearance of your skin i.e. cellulite, fluid retention and posture.
