“What is my body type?” is a question that, along with the science of genetics/DNA/genes, has grown greatly in popularity in the past few decades. Are the three endomorph, ectomorph, and mesomorph body types real? (no they are not – zero scientific bases) Are the hormone body types real? (not really, although hormones do, indeed, affect your body and weight) What is The Four Body Types’ science-based Body Type Quiz (Test)?
Scientifically, how do I know my body type? What variables actually determine why and how to know what your body type is? Genetics/DNA/genes for one. Diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolism (basal metabolic rate/BMR), Body Mass Index (BMI), spine and vertebrae/posture (spinal extension), and muscles/muscle mass are a few more science-based variables.
Like any physical thing, what the thing is made of matters; its scaffolding, structure, overall development as well as the quality of the resources and materials used, no less. The story of the Three Little Pigs and the big, bad wolf paints this picture very clearly. A house made of quality bricks and mortar that is built by true professionals in a well-chosen location on a solid, concrete foundation is much better — stronger, safer, more secure, resilient, and sustainable in the long term — than an amateur house made of sticks and hay.
The human body is really no different.
Genetics/DNA/Genes, The Blueprint & Encoding of the Human Body – What is My Body Type?
Genetics/DNA are the blueprint and encoding for the human body. Your genes determine how all aspects of your body develop from day one. Any part(s) of the human body can be underdeveloped or undeveloped, including vertebrae (posture) and muscles/muscle mass. Mainstream science is adamant that every human being is born in the same general type of human body in terms of development of bones (206), spine/vertebra (26 vertebrae/33 individual bones), muscles (600+), etc. which can be readily seen and studied in any Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book.
Go to any mainstream doctor and they will likely have the same Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book image hanging in their office showing what the standard human body looks like fully developed, including vertebrae (posture) and muscles/mass. Yet, for countless people in the world, their human body and shape has never looked like the Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1), no matter how diligent they are with their diet, exercise, and lifestyle. The fact is, there are countless different body type shapes.
Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1)
Because genetics/DNA/genes, diet, exercise, and lifestyle, no less, matter when it comes to whole human health and genuinely knowing the answer to the question, “what is my body type?”. So, then, what is your body type, and how to know what your body type is?
What is My Body Type? Fellow One Research, The Four Body Types – Genetics/DNA/Genes
Fellow One Research has developed The Four Body Types, Body Type Shape Quiz/Test Calculator by reckoning a wide array of relevant scientific variables and equations/algorithms/formulas in calculating, identifying, and determining, as accurately as possible (an MRI machine would be most accurate), what is my/your body type; be it a Body Type One (BT1), Body Type Two (BT2), Body Type Three (BT3), or Body Type Four (BT4). Genetics/DNA/Genes, diet (food and drink), exercise (cardio, resistance, and work activity/Harris-Benedict), lifestyle (sleep, hobbies, etc.), metabolism (Mifflin St Joer BMR/basal metabolic rate), Body Mass Index (BMI), no less, all matter. The spine, vertebrae, bones, tendons, ligaments, and muscles/muscle mass, no less, are all main elements in the scaffolding, structure, balance, strength, health, and development of the human body.
Your genetic encoding — how your DNA blueprint/genes direct the cells to develop and create your human body from a simple sperm and egg — is not always perfect. In fact, all things considered, it is rarely perfect. But the Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One image hanging in almost every mainstream doctor’s office is the model of perfection.
Genetics/DNA/Genes – The Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1)
That Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One image shows what the human body is when fully developed. According to mainstream science, unless your doctor has specifically diagnosed you with a deformity, malformation, abnormality, or the like, you have a “normal” human body — just like the Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One hanging on their wall. And that is the standard you and all human beings are held to. That perfect standard that a tiny, tiny few — probably less than 10% of the entire human population — actually meet and are.
However, regarding how to determine my body type, strong evidence is mounting that most human beings do not have a fully developed Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1). As the evidence and facts grow and strengthen with each passing day, more and more people are waking up to the truth that not all human bodies are born generally the same, as defined by the Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One and claimed by most mainstream doctors and scientists. Such evidence and facts help explain things like the global obesity epidemic as well as skinny fat including thin fat, cellulite, crepey skin, loose/saggy skin, and normal weight obesity, no less.
How To Know What Your Body Type Is – The Science Behind The Four Body Types
What the Fellow One Research, The Four (4) Body Types research and Body Type Test (Quiz) are revealing is that the spine, spinal extension, and vertebrae (cervical 1-7, thoracic 1-12, lumbar 1-5, sacrum, coccyx) development all matter. Relative to each specific vertebra, muscles and muscle mass development matters. Any human body can have any part underdeveloped or undeveloped including organs, ligaments, tendons, blood vessels, arteries, bones, spine, vertebrae, muscles, muscle mass, etc.
When the vertebrae and/or muscles are underdeveloped or undeveloped, it is highly likely to cause structural issues, no less, within the human body. Where muscles and muscle mass are lacking, the specific body has an increased tendency to put on fat weight in those areas. The more underdeveloped/undeveloped the human body, the more that human body is prone to putting on fat weight and becoming obese. Typically, once a person experiences the obesity disease, whether childhood obesity or adult obesity, it becomes harder and harder to keep the weight off while trying to properly build muscle.
Balance, Health, What is My Body Type, and Aging Gracefully – Genetics/DNA/Genes
The more developed and balanced the human body — a true Body Type One (BT1) being the model of balance and health, like a professional athlete/athletic body type (less than 1% of the population) — the more physical health that directly correlates. Keeping in mind that science is trailblazing new frontiers on many fronts, including CRISPR gene editing. Mental, emotional, and spiritual states are whole other conversations.
The healthier the body, and the healthier the living in terms of diet, exercise, and lifestyle overall, including a sustainable environment, no less, the likelihood greatly increases that the better the specific human being will age well as time passes. Aging gracefully and sustainably is all about maintaining balance and health over the long term. Although genetics/DNA/genes do have their fair say.
