Ectomorph, Mesomorph and Endomorph Explained
Ectomorph – Characterized by a skinny frame and low body fat. Ectomorphs will generally find it hard to put weight on. Most esctomorphs can get away with over eating and minimal weight gain!
Mesomorphs – An average bone structure and will look athletic and more muscular than the ectomorph. Mesomorphs find it easier to build muscle, but will gain fat much easier.
Endomorphs – Can often find it harder to lose weight. This body type is characterized by higher amounts of total body mass with a shorter build and thick arms and legs.

Top 3 Fat Loss Secrets For Female Endomophs
1. Eating Fat Doesn’t Make You Fat!
If you don’t know much about nutrition, it’s understandable why you’d think consuming fats is a bad thing.
However, it’s important to know that there are ‘good’ and ‘bad’ fats; the ones you should be looking to add to your diet are polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, which can be found in avocado, fish and olive oil.
Which ones should you avoid? Answer: Artificial Trans-Fats (which are contained in processed foods like cakes, biscuits and muffins).
Bottom Line: Fats from healthier foods such as avocado, fish oil and olive oil aren’t equal to those in sugary treats. Cut the sugary crap out and go for that healthy stuff!
2. Boost Your Metabolism
You’ve probably heard the word ‘metabolism’ thrown around, but might not know what it is.
Basically, your basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the minimum amount of energy (calories) your body needs to maintain its weight. So by speeding this up, you’ll burn more body fat.
Luckily for you, we’ll give you quick summaries of ways to boost your metabolism below…
Have you ever wondered why you sweat after eating hot chilli peppers?
Well, this is because of the thermogenic effect they have, which directly raises your metabolism – encouraging your body to burn more body fat.
As a result, eating these kinds of foods can really give you that ‘kick’ needed to help you get lean.
Here’s the best food, herbs & spices that boost your metabolism:
- Cayenne Pepper
- Green Tea
- Green Coffee Bean
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
You didn’t think you could get through this article without seeing any form of cardio, did you?
But don’t worry, we won’t tell you to spend hours on a treadmill. Instead, you can get it over in 20-30 minutes with HIIT.
Simply put, HIIT has proven to help raise your metabolism, even after your workout is over (with the ‘afterburn effect’).
How do you perform HIIT? This is basically where you sprint, then rest, then sprint…then rest – you get the idea.
Our favorite way of performing HIIT is on a cycling machine; you can sprints for 10-15 seconds, then rest for 45-50 seconds. Continue repeating this until you’ve completed 20-30 mins.
We mentioned that thermogenic foods can boost your metabolism. But what if you don’t like eating chillies or drinking green tea?
The answer is fat burner supplements. These will provide your body with the fuel it needs to sculpt your dream bikini body – without having to suffer from adding chilli to every single meal.
3. Watch Your Calorie Intake!
This is the most important section of this article. Calories are EVERYTHING when it comes to losing or gaining weight.
If you eat over your basal metabolic rate, then you’ll gain weight (and fat depending on your diet and workout routine).
However, if you eat under your BMR, then you’ll lose weight – this is scientifically proven.
As a result, it’s important to keep an eye on your calorie intake to succeed on your fat burning journey.
If you’re unsure what your BMR is, then head over to this page now (where there’s a calorie calculator to do the hard work for you).
