Fellow One Research lead scientific researcher, Marc Nelson, joined Sunshine Steven podcast host Steven Rice to discuss Body Type Science in relation to mental health. The three mainstream science and medical doctor body type standards were explained along with why they are inaccurate. The discourse then detailed The Four Body Types definitions including vertebrae and muscle mass development relative to skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, saggy/loose skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) and fat.
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, Kibbe body types, triangle body types, 10 body types, etc. were clarified. Things then shifted to how common, unrealistic physical body type expectations directly, negatively affect diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices. As well as emotional and mental health, including trolling, shaming, hating, and bullying.
Body Type Science, Mental Health & Social Media – Sunshine Steven Podcast
Social media is a huge culprit. With the rampant, egregious spreading of fake filtered and Photoshopped body images, people are led to make unhealthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices to try and meet impossible body type expectations that their genetics simply will not allow. The discussion continued on, delving into how Body Type Science helps alleviate the confusion, disinformation, and nonsense allowing the individual to scientifically understand, determine, and identify their real body type. And, thus, helping the individual make healthy science-based diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices, which in turn leads to improved mental, emotional, and physical well-being in the short and long term.
All of which are accomplished using current science-based tools including the online Scientific Body Type Quiz and Scientific Weight Loss Program. Sprinkled into the conversation was the state of the world including gay rights, abortion rights, and the changing tide of things. Winding down the episode, the host lightened the mood by asking some entertaining questions about the guest’s favorite movies, television shows, food, and inspirational people/heroes.
