Yes, it is a scientific fact that there are different female body types. That being said, it is also an undisputed scientific fact that the endomorph, ectomorph, and mesomorph somatotype body types are 100% unscientific, arbitrary, subjective, baseless, and completely debunked body types. They are absolute nonsense.
The same is true for no less than the Kibbe, triangle, 10, and hormone body types (adrenal, thyroid, liver, ovary), etc. You disagree? Ok, then prove us wrong by posting credible links in the comment section below on this page to the science that backs up any of those nonsense body types.
What Are the Current Scientific Body Type Standards?
The current mainstream science and medical doctor’s body type standards for both different female body types as well as male — the actual scientific standards that your doctor uses at your regular checkup to determine whether your body is normal and healthy — are:
- Standard #1: The Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) image approved in any mainstream scientific human body anatomy book, with fully developed genetic muscles/muscle mass, no less. This scientific/genetic standard is not accurate because it does not account for the fact that any part of the human body can be underdeveloped or undeveloped, to whatever degree (AKA body dysmorphia/body dysmorphic disorder). This includes muscles/muscle mass and vertebrae/posture. If you are within your safe BMI weight range yet you have skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, and/or normal weight obesity) on your body where there should be muscles/mass, this is most likely due to your genetics.

- Standard #2: Body Mass Index (BMI), calculated directly relative to the standard BT1. This scientific, genetic standard is not accurate because it is a fact that skinny fat is real. If you are within your safe BMI yet have skinny fat in place of where there should be muscle on your body, then where is the muscle/muscle mass that mainstream science and doctors say is already on every BT1 once within safe BMI? The truth is, BMI fails to include in its calculation the real-life variable that is skinny fat. Furthermore, it is possible to have excess muscle mass on your body (think Dwayne Johnson “The Rock“) that will put you into the overweight or obese columns of your BMI weight scale, but because you do not have excess/too much fat on your body you are not overweight or obese.
- Standard #3: Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) which is the number of calories per day your specific body needs for basic functioning, calculated directly relative to the BT1 and BMI. This scientific standard is not accurate because, metabolically, the scientifically calculated standard Mifflin St Jeor equation and Harris-Benedict equation for activity do not take into account skinny fat. Skinny fat directly, negatively affects your metabolism, no less, because one pound of muscle mass burns six (6) calories per day, but one pound of skinny fat and/or fat burns only two (2) to three (3) calories. The more skinny fat or fat that you have on your body, the more negatively your metabolism is affected, the less accurate your BMR calculations are, and thus the fewer calories your body actually needs daily.
For a body type to be a real, accurate scientific standard it must apply to all human bodies equally. Diet, exercise, and lifestyle definitely matter. Understanding your real scientific body type is a main key to successful scientific weight management as well as weight loss or gain.
The Four Body Types, Body Type Science Standards – Different Female Body Types, What Is My Body Type?
The Four Body Types are the sole real, accurate scientific body type standards in existence. Whether different female body types or different male body types, our scientific body types apply to all human bodies equally. Fellow One Research has the only scientific data to back it up.
Relative to the 26 Vertebrae (Genetics/DNA), including 7 Cervical, 12 Thoracic, 5 Lumbar, 1 Sacrum, and 1 Coccyx:
Body Type One (BT1)– All 26 Vertebrae (24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones) Fully Developed, 0 Vertebrae/Posture & Muscles/Muscle Mass Underdeveloped, Minimal Skinny Fat with Low Proclivity Towards Obesity (Genetics)
Body Type Two (BT2) – Between 25 and 18 Vertebrae (24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones) Fully Developed, 1-8 Vertebrae/Posture & Muscles/Muscle Mass Underdeveloped, Some Skinny Fat with Moderate Proclivity Towards Obesity (Genetics)
Body Type Three (BT3) – Between 17 and 9 Vertebrae (24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones) Fully Developed, 9-17 Vertebrae/Posture & Muscles/Muscle Mass Underdeveloped, Skinny Fat is Likely Widespread with High Proclivity Towards Obesity (Genetics)
Body Type Four (BT4) – Between 8 and 0 Vertebrae (24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones) Fully Developed, 18-26 Vertebrae/Posture & Muscles/Muscle Mass Underdeveloped, Skinny Fat is Likely Severe with Very High Proclivity Towards Obesity (Genetics)
