There are the 4 body types:

The adrenal body type is the strongest of the four types.

Does this sound like you? Read on, most of my adrenal body types can easily recognize themselves in the description. 

You are the person who can easily rearrange the furniture or who always refuses help when carrying in heavy bags of groceries. You love to use your physical strength.

You are a combative type, you have a very high physical resistance and are known to have a high tolerance for physical pain.

Energy Levels of the Adrenal Body Type

Your type has large energy reserves. Not really a “morning type” but some will insist that yes, you are full of energy in the morning. You will be up and ready to go to get the kids off to school and the show on the road. You can be slow in the morning because you stay up too late and or tend to eat a large meal at night or you eat before going to bed.

Given the chance on the weekend, sometimes you can sleep in a little later. During the day, you may say that you are tired and then woops... you get your second wind and there you go again.

Your energy is usually very stable all day long and you tend to have more energy at night than in the morning. You are similar to an old fashioned car or an old diesel truck. (sorry, not too flattering but true) :) You are hard to get going but once you do get going it’s hard to stop you. Some Adrenal body types may have an afternoon energy slump if their liver is congested, or they had a heavy lunch. 

Personality traits of the adrenal body type

The adrenal body type is warm, jovial and sociable. You help everyone out. You are the life of the party. You are appreciated by all. Some but not all, enjoy team sports.

You may seem to handle stress well, although you really tend to interiorize your stress, so it is still there underneath the surface. You may seem calm on the outside but underneath the surface there is a Lot Brewing! 

You are not as creative as the Thyroid Types, but you have the feeling that you can overcome all obstacles and succeed. You are practical and objective and you have a high level of tolerance. You are down to earth.

You are stable and very hard working and tend to over work and burn the candle at both ends. At work, you are the first to arrive and the last to leave. You finish your projects. You want to win and you have a feeling that you can win or at least overcome all situations, discussions, competitions and arguments.

You can sometimes become rigid, inflexible and stubborn physically and mentally. Most adrenal types admit to being stubborn, unless they are too stubborn to admit it... What would your partner say :) 

There are some softer, pliable, easy-going adrenal types but some can be dominating, authoritarian, and impulsive. Beware of the Adrenal Type anger as you tend to have big blow ups when annoyed. This can be exasperated by the liver being overworked through eating too much red meat, fatty foods and drinking alcohol, as the liver is the gland of anger.

Your emotions tend to make you react. When you are hungry it is best not to talk to you until after you have eaten. You will give quick short answers rather than long. You tend to be overly sure of yourself.

As you are so stable yourself, you like everything to be stable as well. You don’t adapt to schedule changes and you don’t like impromptu or unpredictable things. You don’t like to analyze yourself or others. You don’t like to be restricted by too many “musts, or shoulds.” You don’t like abstract things that require reflection, creativity and imagination.

*It would be beneficial for you to learn to stop pushing yourself and accept your vulnerability.

Food cravings of the adrenal body type

Most Adrenal types will exclaim "I Love Food!" And you most certainly do! 

Some adrenal types go for salty foods over sweet. But some just love both. Many lean more towards the salty which in excess can to leave you bloated. If you do crave sweet foods it would be more along the line of the fatty, creamy foods, sugar pie, pastries, caramel sauce and the like. You tend to like red meat, fatty foods and alcohol. When eating or drinking alcohol, this tends to give you a feeling of strength.

Your type tends to over eat and you a hard time stopping eating once you get going. Portion control can be a real challenge. You tend towards excess, even if you feel full you will keep on eating. You feel tired when you have eaten too much and your liver is toiling.

You like:

  • Sweet or salty foods
  • Fatty foods
  • Fried foods
  • Chips
  • Popcorn
  • Fried eggs
  • Rich sauces

  • Pastries
  • Chocolate
  • Cheese
  • Cold cuts
  • If you have toast it is almost always with butter, never plain you tend to love butter
  • Red meat and the fat on meat
  • Alcohol or red wine
  • Foods that are marinated in vinegar with salt

You tend to want to eat fatty foods, cheese, salty foods at 4 PM and at sometimes at night when your energy is waning.

You usually do not drink enough water or eat enough fruits and vegetables.

You need to learn to drink more water even if you feel it is a real challenge.

Common ailments of the adrenal body type

The weak points on an Adrenal body type are the liver and the heart.

Your cardio vascular system can be a danger area due to the high fat diet. You tend towards high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, high cholesterol and blocked arteries. The gall bladder may be prone to stones.

An adrenal body type with a weak thyroid gland will tend to be very depressed, it is important to boost your thyroid.

When the liver is congested you will feel tired and you can suffer from poor digestion.

You need to be careful of diabetes, alcoholism, gout and becoming exhausted.

Physical traits of the adrenal body type

An Adrenal Type is big boned, stocky, solid and strong, sometimes short.

Your upper body is dominant.

The men are built like a football player, the women tend to have a large chest, think Oprah, the breasts are round and apple shaped rather than pear shaped.

Your waist and thighs are not easily distinguished. You have strong muscular arms and legs, a straight back and small buttocks. When you gain weight it tends to be more in the upper body, abdomen, and especially the upper abdomen, right under the chest, the stomach, rather than the lower belly. You also tend to accumulate fat on the back.

Your muscle mass increases easily. You have a high metabolism and give off a lot of heat. Your type often is red-faced, and becomes more red faced when angry, over heated, when exerting yourself or exercising. Some, but not all, tend to have oily skin and a young appearance.
