6 Week Body Makeover – Endormorph Body Type A
The first step of the 6 Week Body Makeover is determining what type of body you have. This is an important step in the body makeover process as you will need to know your body type and create a meal plan with foods that will help burn fat for your specific body type.
The body type A, or “endomorph” has the slowest metabolism out of all the bodies. The reason why “A” people have such slow metabolisms is because they do not have the ability to maintain and build lean muscle mass. One of your body’s main fat burning tools is lean muscle mass. The more lean muscle tissue that you have, the higher your metabolism will work to burn calories. The Michael Thurmond makeover focuses on burning calories by manipulating your metabolism into burning calories at a faster rate.
Often times, people with this type of slow metabolism have struggled with weight loss all of their lives. These people have tried many ways to lose weight, including expensive dieting and very rigorous weight loss programs. However, the result has always been the same and they continue struggle every day with losing weight. It’s not that A people are lazy, it’s just that they are not educated about weight loss and how food reacts with their body.
Endomorph people have a high ratio of fat to lean muscle tissue. This means that their body’s have loose, soft and saggy flesh and a lack of lean muscle. Because of the lack of lean muscle mass, it’s easy for these people to gain weight. It seems like no matter what they eat, they continue to gain weight.
The way that these people can lose weight is by eating more meals per day. Chances are people with body type A eat one to two meals per day. This means they are continuing to support their slow metabolism and as one or two large meals a day focuses on weight maintenance, not weight loss. Also, reducing the amount of meals per day or the amount of calories in an A body type will trigger their metabolisms to go into “survival mode”. This means that the metabolism thinks the body is lacking enough nutrients and will store food energy for later use in the form of fat. People with A bodies must ensure that they eat frequent, smaller and nutritious meals to battle and increase their sluggish metabolism. Which body type do you have? If you are a body type A, consider learning more about your body through the 6 Week Body Makeover program.
