Eating for your body type
Ectomorphs are characterized as thin, with small bone structures “ delicate “ and thinner limbs, lean muscle mass, small shoulders and find it hard to gain weight and muscle. This profile is linked to a fast metabolic rate and a high carbohydrate tolerance. These are the type of people who say “ im eating so much yet I can’t gain weight “ you basically need more food than you say your eating.
Ectomorph do best when you add more carbs in your diet, lower your fat and take a moderate protein intake. 55% carbs, 25% protein and 20% fat would be ideal. Obviously protein portions will differ from Male and Female.
Mesomorph people are moderately-sized bone structures and athletic builds. Generally a hard body, strong, gains muscle easy, body mass is typically lean, well-developed muscles, Gains fat more easily than Ectomorphs.
Mesomorphs have the best of both worlds having to function best with a mixed diet. 40% carbohydrate, 30% protein, and 30% fat.” But for a Mesomorph on a fat loss diet would work better with a higher protein diet and fewer Carbs, and you’ll need to exercise and move more.
Endomorphs tend to have large bone structures, stocky build, soft round body, Gains muscle and fat easy. Finds it harder to lose fat, Slower metabolism. Naturally, this body type tends to be on the less active side.
Endomorhs tend to be more sensitive to carbs. So limiting Carbs would be the first thing for them while on a fatloss goal. They work better with a higher fat and protein diet. 25% carbs, 35% protein, and 40% fat.” This type of macronutrient diet would look like a “ Paleo or Keto “ deit but you do add carbs and have those carbs post training and pre bed.
