In the earlier post, we read about the structure based body classifications- the Endomorph, Ectomorph and Mesomorphs. However, this is not the only typology for the human body. Based on the hormonal secretion, one’s body takes different forms, and thus, there is another basis of segregation. One may wonder which segregation should take precedence over the other- but this is like asking which function of the human body takes precedence over the other- we breathe, think, digest, excrete and feel, ALL AT THE SAME TIME!! In a similar manner, our body structures fit the bill of both classifications at the same time. Different people have different body structures. It was found that weaknesses in the functions of glands or organs can contribute to different body shapes, which are largely designed by the accumulation of excess fluid and fat. Many people may express a combination of these body types.
Men have only three body types, because for the male body, the Adrenal and Gonadal Types are combined. So men can only be Thyroid Types, Adrenal Types or Pituitary Types. Women’s body structures can be either: Thyroid Types, Adrenal Types, Gonadal Types or Pituitary Types.
Thyroid types have high waist, long limbs, they normally crave starch, caffeine, sweets. A sluggish thyroid may contribute to the overall body shape. This body type diet recommends plenty of vegetables and low-fat dairy. Moderate legumes, whole grains, butter and fruit.
Adrenal types have slim hips, larger above the waist, crave fat, salt and alcohol. Adrenal exhaustion can contribute to the overall body shape. Adrenal types should eat plenty of low-fat dairy, whole grains, legumes and vegetables.
Gonadal Types (Gonads and Ovaries) are normally pear shaped, round bottomed and have a slim top. Cravings are for spicy,  rich foods. Diet should include lots of fruit, vegetables, legumes, Whole grains, Low-fat dairy
Pituitary types are characterized by a small, youthful figure and they crave for dairy and sweets.  Your daily diet should have a lot of lentils, Fresh Vegetables, Fenugreek tea.
