Learn How The Four Body Types Determines A Celebrity Body Type Like Christian Bale
Celebrity Christian Bale displays his Body Type One (BT1) shape physique/figure while taking time off with friends and family including his wife Sibi Blažić. The fully developed vertebrae (posture) and muscles/muscle mass are obvious. He is showing no signs of skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) anywhere on his body.
One pound of muscle burns six calories per day, but one pound of skinny fat/fat only burns two to three calories. Which directly affects metabolism (the more skinny fat and fat, the slower the metabolism). Having a strong metabolism because of all that muscle and muscle mass, no less, is an advantage that a fully developed BT1 offers, including aging gracefully.
Diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolism, and BMI matter. But so do genes/genetics/DNA. It will be interesting to see how well Christian Bale successfully maintains his muscular body shape physique/figure as he continues to age.
