The Four Body Types Scientific Identification: Body Type One, BT1
Genetically Underdeveloped Vertebrae (Muscles/Muscle Mass): None/0

Celebrity Jake Gyllenhaal displays his Body Type One (BT1) shape physique/figure while taking time off at the ocean with friends and family including his girlfriend Jeanne Cadieu. He is showing no signs of skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) anywhere on his body. The fully developed vertebrae (posture) and muscles/muscle mass are obvious.
Science recognizes that 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 typically offers, including aging gracefully.
Diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolism, and BMI matter. But so do genes/genetics/DNA. As he continues to age, it will be interesting to see how well Jake Gyllenhaal successfully maintains his body shape physique/figure.
Jake Gyllenhaal Physique/Figure – BT1
A-list Academy Award-nominated star Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal shows off his Body Type One shape/physique/figure during his vacation. His entertainment career began in 1991 at the age of 11 when he made his acting debut as Billy Crystal’s son in the hit comedy City Slickers. After appearing in the 1993 children’s movie Josh and S.A.M., due to the fact that his parents were very protective, limiting his access to roles, he was only allowed in his father’s (director and writer) productions including the 1993 dramatic romance A Dangerous Woman (alongside sister Maggie Gyllenhaal) and in the 1998 comedic film Homegrown.
Keeping him grounded and aware of his privilege, his parents strongly encouraged him to work regular summer jobs which included lifeguarding and busboying at a family friend’s restaurant. Dropping out of Columbia University two years in, he focused his attention fully on acting with his first lead role in October Sky (1999), which received positive critical acclaim. Paying his dues in diversely successful parts including the cult-classic Donnie Darko (2001), Lovely and Amazing (2001), Bubble Boy (2001), Highway (2002), The Good Girl (2002), and Moonlight Mile (2002) culminated with his breakout lead role in the blockbuster science fiction movie The Day After Tomorrow in 2004.
