Discover The Best Way To Start Your Fast

Why do some people seem to be able to eat whatever they want without gaining weight, while others seem to struggle no matter what they eat? Well, body type might play a role. As many of us know, no two bodies are the same, – in other words, what works for you may not work for someone else. Depending on your body type, certain diets and food combinations can be more helpful than others when it comes to boosting energy levels and helping you reach your desired weight.

What Is A Body Type?

History of Body Type

In the 1940s, American researcher and psychologist William Sheldon introduced the concept of different body types. His research concluded that the concept of somatotypes is based on the understanding that everyone is born with a specific body type. Body type, or "somatotype", is based on our skeletal frame and body composition. This determines how easy it is for the body to store fat, and whether we are leaner, heavier, or somewhere in between.
