Fellow One Research lead scientific researcher, Marc Nelson, appeared on the Finding Your Realm Podcast with host Jamilla Pipersburg to discuss The Four Body Types (Body Type Science). Most people want to know what their specific genetic scientific body type is; why and how their human body is the shape it is and how it affects their health, no less. Until recently, the majority of people worldwide have relied on the thoroughly disproven/debunked somatotype body types — endomorph, ectomorph, and mesomorph — not realizing they are unscientific, subjective, arbitrary, baseless nonsense shapes. The same is true for the triangle, Kibbe, 10, hormone body types, etc.
The human body has 26 vertebrae including 7 cervical, 12 thoracic, 5 lumbar, 1 sacrum, and 1 coccyx. A distinct correlation is made between genetics/DNA and vertebrae (posture) and muscles/muscle mass development (or lack thereof) relative to skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) and excess fat. Body Type Science utilizes The Four Body Types to determine and identify your genetic scientific body type.
Finding Your Realm Podcast with Jamilla Pipersburg – The Four Body Types Definitions (Body Type Science)
The Four Body Types are defined as:
Body Type One (BT1)– All 26 vertebrae developed, meaning zero (0) vertebrae underdeveloped in relation to muscles/muscle mass and skinny fat (i.e. minimal to no skinny fat with a low propensity towards obesity)
Body Type Two (BT2) – Between 25 and 18 vertebrae developed meaning one (1) to eight (8) vertebrae underdeveloped in relation to muscles/muscle mass and skinny fat (i.e. minimal to moderate skinny fat with a moderate propensity towards obesity)
Body Type Three (BT3) – Between 17 and 09 vertebrae developed meaning nine (9) to seventeen (17) vertebrae underdeveloped in relation to muscles/muscle mass and skinny fat (i.e. moderate to severe skinny fat with a severe propensity towards obesity)
Body Type Four (BT4) – Between 08 and 0 vertebrae developed meaning eighteen (18) to twenty-six (26) vertebrae underdeveloped in relation to muscles/muscle mass and skinny fat (i.e. severe to very severe skinny fat with a very severe propensity towards obesity)
Inaccurate Current Scientific Body Type Standards
The discussion then clarified the current mainstream science and medical doctor’s body type standards, which are:
- Standard #1: Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) – found in any scientifically approved human body anatomy book. This first standard is inaccurate because it does not calculate skinny fat. In other words, it fails to account for the scientific/genetic fact that any part of the human body can be underdeveloped to whatever degree.
- Standard #2: Body Mass Index (BMI) – It is inaccurate because it fails to calculate skinny fat, nor does it take into account the possibility of excess muscle mass which can put one into the overweight or obese column of their BMI weight scale but they are not overweight or obese.
- Standard #3: Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) – It is inaccurate because it does not calculate skinny fat in the Standard Mifflin St Jeor formula and Harris-Benedict equation for activity, even though science recognizes that one pound of muscle mass burns six calories per day but one pound of fat/skinny fat only burns two to three calories daily, which directly, negatively affects metabolism.
Diet, Exercise, Lifestyle, & Unfair Body Type Standards – Finding Your Realm Podcast with Jamilla Pipersburg
For many people globally, no matter how diligent they are with their diet, exercise, metabolism (BMR), BMI, and lifestyle, their genetics directly influence their body type and shape, including gut flora/gut microbiome health. When it comes to diet, the most recent science shows that a calorie is not a calorie, that food quality matters (especially low Glycemic Index/GI foods), and that a low-carb diet with a bullseye of 37 grams of carbs per day is a very effective way to lose weight for many people. This is particularly true for anyone who has failed to successfully lose the desired weight with any other diet they have followed. The importance of proper exercise to positively regulate metabolism as well as healthy lifestyle choices, particularly stress and sleep, are also addressed.
The conversation moved on to delve into the common, inaccurate, unrealistic physical body type standards and expectations placed on the average person by mainstream scientists and doctors, the media, social media, and society, in general. The fact is, every human being is NOT born in a Standard Body Type One (BT1), contrary to the adamant claims of mainstream science and medical doctors. How can anyone be happy in a Body Type Two (BT2), Three (BT3), or Four (BT4) when such inaccurate and unfair physical body type standards and expectations are the cultural norms?
Unfair standards encourage unhealthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices, all of which are negatively reflected in declining physical (obesity epidemic), emotional, and mental health globally, notably among young people.
Social Media Misinformation & Disinformation
Moreover, the widespread Photoshopped and fake filtered body images and prevalent disinformation and misinformation on social media only make the problem more worrisome. The Four Body Types and Body Type Science help reduce confusion and nonsense by allowing the individual to scientifically understand, determine, and identify their real genetic scientific body type. As a comprehensive solution, Body Type Science helps you accept your genetic scientific body type, one of The Four Body Types, therefore allowing you to make healthy science-based diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices that encourage improved mental, emotional, and physical well-being in the short and long term.
