Look below at the number you now have. If you come up
with a fraction, for example 1.5, then you are somewhere
inbetween those two body types. And recomendations
would be a middle approach.
You tend towards being an Endomorph, your biggest
concern should be the losing of fat and adopting a lifestyle
that keeps it off.
Strength training should be done to get a better muscle to
fat ratio and therefore improve metabolism. Use moderate
weights at a fast training pace (very little rest between sets
You should lower your calorie intake (but not try to starve
yourself) and should eat frequent but small meals. Sugars,
sweets and junk food should be eliminated from your diet.
Engage daily in some activity like brisk walking, biking,
etc., and try to increase the amount of time you spend
You tend towards being a Mesomorph and have a naturally
fit body but to maintain it or improve it you should exercise
and diet corretly for your type.
Strength training can be done more often and for longer
sessions then would be good for an Ectomorph, but you must

Engage in and enjoy aerobic activities, sports, etc. but do not
You tend towards being an Ectomorph, you should
concentrate on gaining weight in the form of good lean
muscle tissue (some women that are too thin may also

Weight training should be done but not too often or for too
long each session. Weight should be fairly heavy and
workout pace slower (longer rest periods between sets).
Diet should be high in calories (good quality food not junk)
and you should eat more then you're used to and often.
Aerobic and other activities (sports, dancing, etc.) should be
kept to a minimum, at least until you are happy with your
weight and looks.
