Celebrity Shaquille ONeal sporting his Body Type Two (BT2) physique while on holiday with his girlfriend and friends. At his age, identifying his true body type can be more difficult and it is possible he is a Body Type One (BT1). Diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolism, and BMI matter, but so do genes/genetics/DNA.
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 possible slight lack of muscles/muscle mass in his lower back region indicates a slightly underdeveloped lower thoracic and lumbar vertebra or two which directly correlates to the front abdominal/midriff/stomach area and excess fat. If he were to lose the extra fat weight, would that reveal that Shaquille O’Neal is actually a Body Type One physique?
