Have you been wondering, "What is my body type?"
Good for you! You are way ahead of the game because you've realized that there are different body types. In order to obtain optimal health and lose weight if you want to, you must eat for your body type and follow the body type diet.
If you have tried other weight loss diets I am sure you know...
One diet does not fit all!
When I was taking my classes to be a Naturopath, my teacher explained about the three body types for men, and four female body types. When I asked, "what is my body type?" I found out that I had a thyroid body type, the description fit me to a T.
She explained that my type preferred to be vegetarian but that it was very difficult for us to get enough protein for our body type. However, if you are vegetarian, don't worry, that may be fine for your body type, for me it wasn't the best plan.
At that time I had been vegetarian for 16 years, it went along with my whole yogic philosophy of not harming animals, ending world hunger, etc. There was no way I was going to eat meat!
As the classes continued, day after day, I began to realize and understand the huge positive impact on your health when you eat for your body type.
I finally decided to try it out for myself. I started eating chicken and fish. I began eating eggs for breakfast, I cut down on sugar and and I followed my body type diet. Well the results were nothing short of miraculous.
Slowly over time, my energy increased enormously. Gone were the afternoon energy crashes. My strength increased ten fold. I went from one of the slowest in my cycling club to one of the fastest women.
The eczema I had on my hands for twenty years cleared up, never to return. Before, my complexion had been as white as a ghost, and now my cheeks gained a very rosy, healthy, glow. I felt balanced and centered.
Now, I wake up every day with lots of energy and I go non-stop all day long with high energy that lasts without any need for coffee or sugar to spike me up.
And you can lose the weight you need to
and feel satisfied and balanced while you do so.

And some people have a skinny body type. Don't you just hate that? : )

women body types.
For each type, the gland in question, adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, or gonad, (ovaries for women,) is overworking. The other glands are weaker and are trying to catch up.
As long as there is this glandular imbalance, weight loss will be very difficult.
When you eat for your body type you nourish the weaker glands and allow the dominant gland to rest.
When you give your body the right amount and right kinds of food at the right time you feel satisfied. And as I mentioned above,
What about the endomorph body type, mesomorph body type and ectomorph body type? These only give part of the picture. They show whether the body is slim or overweight but they don't provide specific diets to balance each type.
