In this video, we’re going to talk about body types, how to differentiate body types, and the causes of different body types. I’m also going to share some important tips for each body type.
Body type #1 — The adrenal body type
With this body type, people typically have a sagging belly. The sagging belly is fat coming from a hormone called cortisol. It is not necessarily diet-related—it may be stress-related. That’s why diets may not work. The most important thing to do for this body type is to reduce stress and get sleep. People with this body type also should not go on a low-protein diet. Instead, they should eat a little more protein with each meal, and they should consume plenty of vegetables.
Body type #2 — The thyroid body type
People with this body type typically have weight all over, not in one location. But, let’s say you’re diagnosed with a thyroid problem. You’re prescribed hormones, and you don’t see any changes. This might be because the thyroid problem is actually a secondary problem to something else. A thyroid problem may be from having too much estrogen, a T4-T3 conversion issue from the liver and gallbladder, or a stress/adrenal issue. You will want to identify the true source of the thyroid problem and eat foods that support that issue.
Body type #3 — The liver body type
This is a body type mainly seen with men, but it can happen with women as well. With this body type, you’ll notice a protruding belly or pot-belly. With this body type, you do not want to consume alcohol before you go to bed. People with this body type also typically do not do well on a heavy-protein diet. It may be best to eat a small amount of protein and plenty of vegetables.
Body type #4 — The ovary body type
People with the ovary body type typically hold weight in their hips and below the belly button. This can be a situation of estrogen dominance. People with this body type may benefit from supporting estrogen balance. Cruciferous vegetables are the key food to help balance estrogen. It’s also best to consume hormone-free foods—especially when it comes to dairy and meat.
