Marc Nelson, Fellow One Research’s lead scientific researcher, joined Living the Dream with Curveball podcast host DJ Curtis Jackson to discuss The Four Body Types’ Body Type Science. The show begins with an explanation of how Marc came to pioneer Body Type Science after first noticing how different his body was starting around the age of eight.
Upon referencing the mainstream science and medical doctor Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) image found in any scientifically approved human body anatomy book, he realized that he had skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) all over his body. It is a fact that obesity is genetically common in his family. He asked his parents and doctors why he had so little muscles/muscle mass, but they had no answer.
The Four Body Types – Skinny Fat, Normal Weight Obesity, Being Overweight, Obesity
Because he was such an active kid and teenager and always well within his safe BMI (Body Mass Index) weight range, no one including the doctors gave it a second thought. Missing all that muscle/mass led to copious hardships. Which included normal weight obesity, being overweight, having to quit competitive sports, obesity, negative body image, depression, digestive imbalance, and relentless bullying, no less.
The conversation addressed the three mainstream science and medical doctor body type standards and their inaccuracy. Moreover, the debunked unscientific, baseless, arbitrary, and subjective shapes that are the somatotype three body types — endomorph, ectomorph, mesomorph — along with the unfounded hormone body types, triangle body types, Kibbe body types, 10 body types, etc. were clarified. Things then focused on The Four Body Types definitions and how common, unrealistic physical body type expectations directly, adversely affect diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices as well as emotional and mental health.

With the dishonest, widespread dissemination of fake Photoshopped and filtered body images, social media is a main culprit. People are misguided, believing in and ultimately making unhealthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices to try and meet unrealistic body type standards and impossible expectations that their genetics simply will not allow. The discussion then shifted to how Body Type Science helps alleviate the confusion, disinformation, and nonsense allowing the individual to actually understand, determine, and identify their scientific body type.
Such knowledge helps the individual make better choices in terms of a healthy science-based diet, exercise, and lifestyle. This equates to improved mental, emotional, and physical well-being in the short and long term. All of these can be reasonably accomplished using current science-based tools including the online Scientific Body Type Quiz and Scientific Weight Loss Programs.
