Body Type & Best Macros

Last month was all about Macro nutrients. Macros in March, get it? Now that April is Action April, let’s put those counting macros to work! If you have yet to read my blog post on How to count your macro nutrients, click “HERE”. If you still are confused on How to get started on your macros, reach out to me as I can teach and coach you.

Within that previous blog post we have discussed how to count macro nutrients, now let’s talk about different body types. Depending on your body type, will then help consider what percentage your macro nutrients should be set to.

By the end of this post, you’ll be able to identify which body type you are AND what percentage of macros you may want to start to follow to achieve overall fitness goals. 

 

What’s your body type?

Learning what body type, you are can make a huge difference on how you eat, train and live your everyday lifestyle. 

Let’s begin with the three basic body types: Ectomorph, Endomorph, and Mesomorph.

Now, let’s focus on the different descriptions of each.

Ectomorph

Tends to have a hard time Gaining Weight/Fat

Relatively Lean, long, narrow frames

Difficulty building muscle

 

Endomorph

Tends to have a Slower Metabolism

Big, high body fat, often pear shaped, “Stocky”

High tendency to store body fat

 

Mesomorph

Tends to be the “best of both worlds”- Easy to Gain, Easy to lose Weight/Fat

“Curvy” well defined muscle, muscular/well built

High metabolism and responsive muscle cells

 

 

Body Type & Best Macros

Here are the Macro nutrients you should begin to follow depending on Body Type:

ECTO 55% Carbs 25% Protein 20% Fats

 

ENDO 25% Carbs 35% Protein 40% Fats

 

MESO 40% Carbs 30% Protein 30% Fats

 

 

I personally follow a MESO mostly because I want an overall Balanced “Diet” It allows me to live life with balance

all through out the day eating different types of foods. A 40/30/30 approach also helps maintain my blood sugar

levels all day long. This allows me to have energy all day long from super early appointments to later appointments in the evening while also satisfying my hunger levels.

 

 

 

 

 

Based on your body type, try following macro nutrients according to your body type. This may not work for all, keeping in mind there are other things you may need to take in consideration, gender, genetics, and possibly other contraindications. But I provide you this information to give it a try!

SO—Ask yourself what body type are YOU? How can YOU start making small changes to eat according to your body type?

I've been going to Marisa for awhile when I'm either in some type of pain or just in need of a massage. She's extremely knowledgeable in what she does; gives me a lot of advice if a body part hurts and what I can do at home to help. I've also joined her New Years challenge; definitely has helped me stay in the right path. My last massage experience I actually fell asleep on the table because it was so relaxing!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I participated in Marisa’s Challenge from March to May this year, participating in this challenge was more of a learning experience for me. I wasn’t a big eater as I was always busy and just would have another cup of coffee versus having a nice meal because it was quicker. Marisa taught me how to balance life while eating well and maintaining balance. My big Challenge was I wanted to make sure I could still enjoy life by eating fun food, having a nice relaxing cocktail while still balancing portion and healthy eating while getting in a workout 5 days a week. And She taught me just that! I learned to do that, While loosing 10 pounds! I am not ending this life style today I am Continuing it and shooting to loose another 20 pounds but will be over the moon to at least get another 10! I am very happy with how far I come, and I have Marisa to thank for that. Work with her whether it’s to loose weight, learn how to balance a healthy lifestyle, or even gain muscle and become stronger, don’t look further Marisa is your girl!

I trained with Marisa for 3 years. She is amazing. Highly professional and very quick to return any nutritional or other questions I had. I still will only go to her for my monthly massages because they are simply the best I have ever had. She is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to every day life and fitness goals!

I've been going to Marisa for massage therapy since the beginning of 2018 and she's my go to massage therapist when I know its time for my muscles to decompress. Marisa's background and experience in fitness and personal training really stand out from the rest of massage therapy that I've had in the past. And as a fitness enthusiast that lifts 6x/week, that's the best combination for me personally. From my very first massage therapy session with her, I felt like she was communicating with my muscles without me even saying much. It's like she was sensing and adjusting based on the feedback on how my muscles were reacting. I bring that up every session because I think that's an incredible skill. If you want to talk during your session, she will talk. If you just want to relax and shut eye, that's fine with her too. Very professional. Sometimes she runs promotions and specials during the holiday, I would definitely take advance of that. Schedule a session with Marisa and you'll know what I'm talking about!
