Theory

According to mainstream science, all you have to do to look like any Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) is decrease daily calorie intake and increase daily calorie burn. That is it. According to the National Institute of Health's BMI chart, to reach your medically safe BMI weight range for your height of 5 feet, 0 inch, you have to weigh between 97.00 pounds and 123.00 pounds. To get to the high end of that medically safe BMI weight range at 123.00 pounds, you would have to lose, relative to your current weight of 142.00 pounds, 19.00 pounds. To get the bottom of that range at 97.00 pounds, you would have to lose 45 pounds. According to mainstream science, once you reach your medically safe BMI weight range, for this study no less than the upper-middle-range at 117.00 pounds, you should look identical to a Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One. It may take getting down to the lower end towards 97.00 pounds to truly look identical. However, the Fellow One Research, The Four Body Types Theory is, because of your anticipated underdeveloped vertebrae (thoracic, lumbar, sacrum) identified in your Body Type Shape Quiz/Test, you will not look identical to a Body Type One (BT1). You will experience skinny fat, cellulite, crepey skin, loose skin, saggy skin, and/or normal weight obesity due to, no less, your underdeveloped muscle mass.

Fellow One Research, The Four Body Types Body Type Quiz/Test Participant Ashley Mullins Bio Summary – Body Type Three (BT3)


I have studied The Four (4) Body Types and it is my understanding that I am a Body Type Three (BT3). Obesity has moderately been a problem in my life. My obesity problems started in my life between age 6 and age 10. I was at my heaviest weight when I reached 202 pounds at age 27. The most weight I ever lost was 59 pounds when I was 33. I have been successful at keeping all that weight off to date. I gained back 0 of those pounds in a span of 0 month(s).

My ride on the obesity weight gain & loss management roller coaster ride has been slightly severe. If/when I put fat weight on my body, it is most likely that I will put the fat weight on in relation to: upper leg/inner thighs, upper leg/back thighs, buttocks, lower midriff/waist/hips, midriff/abdomen/belly, upper chest/pectoral/breast, upper arms/front/biceps, upper arms/back/triceps, inner upper arms/under arms, lower side trunk/love handles, as accurately as I can figure. I attribute mostly my unbalanced diet and lifestyle choices to my weight problems. On average, obesity is common in my family.

Upon careful examination of my spine, vertebra(e) (posture), and muscle/muscle mass, I am confident that the following vertebra(e) in my body are underdeveloped if not undeveloped: thoracic 1, thoracic 5, thoracic 8, thoracic 9, thoracic 10, thoracic 11, thoracic 12, lumbar 1, lumbar 2, lumbar 3, lumbar 4, lumbar 5, sacrum, as best I can surmise. I am confident I am a Body Type Three (BT3) because I have between nine (9) and seventeen (17) vertebrae undeveloped. I am quite sure my body does not look identical to a Body Type One (BT1) with all muscles developed & defined. My body has not always had the fully developed BT1 classic arch, dimples, vertebrae (posture), and muscle mass. I am certain I do not have the fully developed BT1 classic arch and dimples, which strengthens my belief I'm not a BT1.

What Does My Body Type Three (BT3) Mean?


Life is all about balance. Unbalance allows a human being to truly understand balance by recognizing, honestly, what their unbalances truly are. All be it some more than others, all human beings are unbalanced physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, at least to some extent. But most human beings are very unbalanced and unhealthy. The more unbalanced the body type (BT4 is the most unbalanced body type), including metabolism, the more physical work the specific individual person has to do to bring their human body into a state of true physical balance (BT1).

Body Type One (BT1): Physically balanced (Anatomy Standard).

*Fully developed vertebrae, spinal extension (posture), and muscle. *33 out of 33 Vertebrae Developed and Extended, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (0 Vertebrae Undeveloped/Underdeveloped) *Very Low to Low probabilities of experiencing obesity in the short and long-terms. *High tendencies to be symmetrical and attractive. *Mental (mind), emotional (energy in motion), and spiritual (soul/soul energy/star power/IT Factor) balance matters equally as much as physical (body/genetics/DNA) balance.

Body Type Two (BT2): Less Physically Balanced.

*Mostly developed vertebrae, spinal extension (posture), and muscle. *32 to 22 out of 33 Vertebrae Developed and Extended, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (1-8 Vertebrae Undeveloped/Underdeveloped) *Low to Medium probabilities of experiencing obesity in the short and long-terms. *Moderate tendencies to be symmetrical and attractive. *Mental (mind), emotional (energy in motion), and spiritual (soul/soul energy/star power/IT Factor) balance matters equally as much if not more (to make up for physical unbalances) while the BT2 person is achieving to physical (body/genes/DNA) balance.

Body Type Three (BT3): More Physically Unbalanced.

*Moderate to mostly undeveloped vertebrae, spinal extension (posture), and muscle. *21 to 11 out of 33 Vertebrae Developed and Extended, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (9-17 Vertebrae Undeveloped/Underdeveloped) *Medium to High probabilities of experiencing obesity in the short and long-terms. *Moderate tendencies to be asymmetrical and unattractive. *Mental (mind), emotional (energy in motion), and spiritual (soul/soul energy/star power/IT Factor) balance matters even more (to make up for physical unbalances) while the BT3 person is achieving to physical (body/genetics/DNA) balance.

Body Type Four (BT4): Mostly to Fully Physically Unbalanced.

*Mostly to completely undeveloped vertebrae, spinal extension (posture), and muscle. *10 to 0 out of 33 Vertebrae Developed and Extended, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (18-26 Vertebrae Undeveloped/Underdeveloped) *High to Very High probabilities of experiencing obesity in the short and long-terms. *High tendencies to be asymmetrical and unattractive. *Mental (mind), emotional (energy in motion), and spiritual (soul/soul energy/star power/IT Factor) balance matters even that much more (to make up for physical unbalances) while the BT4 person is achieving to physical (body/genes/DNA) balance.

  1. Comment #3538

    Hi Ashley:

    Thanks for your Fellow One Research Participant, The Four Body Types’ Free Body Type Quiz/Test Calculator submission.

    Please carefully review the above post.

    After reviewing your Body Type Quiz data and images, it appears that you are likely a Body Type Three (BT3) with at least underdeveloped thoracic 1, thoracic 5, thoracic 8, thoracic 9, thoracic 10, thoracic 11, thoracic 12, lumbar 1, lumbar 2, lumbar 3, lumbar 4, lumbar 5, and sacrum vertebrae. Your BT1 Classic Arch and Dimples do not look fully developed. Being a BT3 is supported by your statements, "If/when I put fat weight on my body, it is most likely that I will put the fat weight on in relation to: upper leg/inner thighs, upper leg/back thighs, buttocks, lower midriff/waist/hips, midriff/abdomen/belly, upper chest/pectoral/breast, upper arms/front/biceps, upper arms/back/triceps, inner upper arms/under arms, lower side trunk/love handles, as accurately as I can figure." and "After reviewing my body, I am experiencing and/or have experienced skinny fat including thin fat, cellulite, crepey skin, loose/saggy skin, and/or normal weight obesity, in general, relative to: front knees, upper leg/front thighs, upper leg/inner thighs, upper leg/back thighs, upper leg/outer thighs, midriff/abdomen/belly, upper midriff/diaphragm, upper chest/pectoral/breast, upper arms/front/biceps, upper arms/back/triceps, inner upper arms/under arms, lower side trunk/love handles, upper side trunk, as far as I can tell." as well as "I feel back aches and pains in my body in relation to: cervical 7, thoracic 1, thoracic 2, lumbar 4, lumbar 5, sacrum...". Things are further supported by your moderate risk BMI relative to your very increased metabolic rate.

    Please answer the following:

    Looking at the BT1 Dimples and Classic Arch here https://fellowone.com/fellow-one-research/the-four-body-types/

    A. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being 100% fully developed, how Developed are your Body Type One (BT1) Dimples?
    B. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being 100% fully developed, how Developed is your Body Type One (BT1) Classic Arch?

    All the years of your life, from 0-33, should be clearly represented in your answers. After double-checking the images here https://fellowone.com/fellow-one-research/the-four-body-types/

    C. What years of your life did you look like a Body Type One (BT1), if any?
    D. What years of your life did you look like a Body Type Two (BT2), if any?
    E. What years of your life did/have you looked like a Body Type Three (BT3)?
    F. What years of your life did you look like a Body Type Four (BT4), if any?

    G. In terms of extra weight in your bust, can you shed more light on if this has always been a problem since puberty?

    H. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being 100% True, True or False? Every human body is born the same, with the same muscle mass and development, as per every Standard Science/Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book (BT1). Obesity is solely/only about poor diet, laziness/no exercise, and unhealthy lifestyle habits.

    I. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being 100% True, True or False? The spine/vertebrae (posture) & muscle/muscle mass are main, vital components in the scaffolding, structure, & metabolism of the human body as well as it’s balance, health, & appearance, no less, and directly affects body type (one of The Four Body Types).

    J. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being 100% True, True or False? Mainstream science is right, all any human being has to do to lose weight & look like a Standard Scientific Human Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) is reduce daily calorie intake & increase daily calorie burn.

      2. I don't understand how the results come about. Without an x-ray, how do the researchers come to the conclusions about the spine?
      3. Be transparent in the scientific process used.

      • Comment #3543

        Thanks for the feedback. Yes, it is true that an MRI machine is the only really accurate way to know for sure how to verify muscle development versus fat in relation to vertebrae, no less. But at this time, for many reasons, that option is simply not possible.

        However, the evidence and proof is you -- you losing the weight and getting into your safe scientifically/medically safe BMI weight range as per mainstream science and medical doctors. It may take getting to the lower end of that range, but according to mainstream science and medical doctors, every human being has the Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) with all vertebrae (posture) and muscles/mass developed (relative to baby, child, adolescent, teen, and adult) unless specifically diagnosed by their doctor with a malformation, abnormality, deformation, or the like.

        The Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1)(see attached): the model of perfection, the standard that you and all human beings are held to when it comes to overall health. That perfect standard that a very tiny few — probably less than 10% of the entire human population — actually meet and are.

        —————————

        If, once you successfully lose the weight and are no less than well within your mainstream science and medical doctors medically/scientifically approved BMI Weight Range, if your body does not look like the Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1), why? You stated in your Body Type Quiz, “No, a licensed medical doctor has never diagnosed me with a specific malformation, underdevelopment, abnormality, or the like.” Genetics/DNA matter.

        Why are you dealing with such obesity problems including extra fat weight, being overweight/obese, and skinny fat (thin fat, cellulite, crepey skin, loose/saggy skin, and/or normal weight obesity)?

        Your diet could use some clean up.

        But your cardio exercise is very healthy and increasing your metabolic rate which helps burn more calories.

        Incorporating solid resistance exercise would help build muscle and burn more calories. However, if your body is already a BT1 with merely extra fat weight on it, as mainstream science and medical doctors say it is, then, if that is true, because you are already a BT1 with all vertebrae (posture) and muscles/muscle fully developed, you really should have no need to lift weights and build muscle at your young age of 33.

        Your sleep could be improved, which would help with weight management and maintenance.

        If it is not genetics/DNA, then it must be diet, exercise, and/or lifestyle. But if it is genetics/DNA, what does that mean? Genetically speaking, it is a fact that any part of the human body can be underdeveloped or undeveloped, including the spine, vertebrae, spinal extension (posture), and muscles/muscle mass.

        —————————

        The simple truth is, according to mainstream science and medical doctors, all you have to do to lose weight and look identical to a Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) is reduce your daily calories to roughly 500 calories below BMR to lose 1 pound on average per week. Your Mifflin St Jeor BMR is 1294 calories which means you would need to reduce your daily calorie intake to 794 calories. You can expedite the weight loss process by doing more cardio exercise as well as resistance exercise (to add muscle) to increase your daily calorie burn. But that is really it. Calorie is king according to mainstream science and medical doctors.

        —————————
        —————————

        Summary:

        On one hand, once you lose weight and are well within safe BMI, if mainstream science and doctors are right, your body will look identical to a Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1).

        On the other hand, if once you lose the weight and are well within safe BMI and your body does NOT look identical to the Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1), but instead, you experience skinny fat in any capacity, then where are the muscles and muscle mass? Why is there skinny fat where there clearly should be muscle(s) according to mainstream science and medical doctors Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1)?

    Subject: Update on Weight Loss Journey

    Day 1, I'm beginning this journey with a new diet (low fat). It's not the first time I've done it, and I don't like most foods that are labeled as such, but it will help me reach my 'more than 2 lbs' weekly goal. I have lost 30 lbs in the past 4 months, and a total of 60 lbs over 5 years. Since I have watched what I eat but have not dieted, nor even tracked my food intake, these past 4 months, I'm not sure how my body will take to suddenly decreasing calories. I am hopeful though because it is only 1 month.

    Hi Gnosis,

    I want to start weight-training but I'm afraid it will halt my weight loss--and maybe even add weight-- because muscle weighs more than fat. To prevent this, is it best to stick with "low weight, high repetitions" or "high weight, low repetitions"?

    • Comment #3589

      Science currently recognizes that ten (10) pounds of resting/passive (Basal Metabolic Rate/BMR) muscle burns fifty (50) calories per day, while ten (10) pounds of fat burns only twenty (20) calories. Although there is debate on just how accurate these numbers really are, it is a fact that muscles burns significantly more calories than fat overall. Thus, adding muscle to your body will help burn more calories which in turn will help with your weight loss.

      However, HOW/WHERE that muscle is added to your body matters. Keep in mind that adding muscle via repetition exercises like weightlifting means that as soon as you stop doing the repetition exercise you will likely lose the muscle gained over time.

      At present, the Standard Scientific Human Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) image (see attached) is the standard that all human bodies are judged by (unless your doctor has specifically diagnosed you with a deformation, abnormality, underdevelopment, or the like). According to that image, every human body has all the muscles and mass as per that standard image. So, if you are lacking muscles/mass anywhere on your body relative to the Standard Scientific Human Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1), the first question is, why (likely genetics/DNA, but diet, exercise, and lifestyle are real factors)?

      If your body is lacking muscle(s)/mass development in any capacity, the second question is, how do you properly develop those lacking muscles so that your body is in a real state of balance and health, as per the Standard Scientific Human Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1)? Thing is, if your body is, indeed, lacking muscles/mass anywhere on your body, then improper weightlifting can add muscle(s) in areas where you do not necessarily need more muscle, leaving other areas that do, indeed, need muscle still underdeveloped, at least. If this comes to pass, then you will find your body in a relative state of unbalance, including appearance, in relation to the Standard Scientific Human Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) image.

      Finding a way to properly add muscle to your body will likely help encourage your current weight loss efforts.

      Low-weight, high repetition weight training exercises have tendencies to increase muscle tone more than they will increase muscle mass. In other words, you will likely add less new muscle (and burn less calories) and merely tone already existing muscle.

      High-weight, low repetition weight lifting exercises have more of a tendency to increase muscles/mass (and thus burn more calories). But again, as soon as you stop doing the repetition exercise(s), you will begin to lose the muscle(s) built, especially as you age.

      Both of these forms of resistance exercise will most probably have little effect on skinny fat including thin-fat, cellulite, crepey skin, loose/saggy skin, and/or normal weight obesity, unless done with great extended diligence and accuracy. And even then, body type matters.

      There are other resistance exercise options. These isometric (gravity) resistance exercise videos will help both build muscle(s)/mass and tone existing muscle, as well as get rid of skinny fat, when done right. They can be used in harmony with weightlifting repetition exercises, as needed. If done right, it is possible to build proper muscles/mass and maintain that muscle for the long term with the help of gravity.
