OPWG Reader Question #2 on Muscle Mass, Posture, Diet, Exercise, Lifestyle: Evette Weiss from New York, Body Type Two
OPWG Podcast Episode Eight Reader Question Edition #2 Overview – Muscle Mass, Posture, Diet, Exercise, Lifestyle
Over Privileged White Guy (OPWG) Podcast – Episode Eight Book Reader Question Edition #2 is in micro-podcast format and addresses a reader question from Evette Weiss who lives in New York. OPWG Podcast Episode Eight, Book Reader Question #2 focuses on muscle mass, posture, diet, exercise, and lifestyle relative to Ms. Weiss’s Body Type Two and underdeveloped muscle in what she has roughly identified as ranging from thoracic vertebra seven (7) to lumbar vertebra three (3).
The discussion centers on what diet, exercise and lifestyle advice Gnosis can offer to help improve her muscle mass and posture (spinal extension) in that T7 to L3 vertebrae range. Starting things off with diet advice, and to some extent lifestyle advice, Gnosis points our that diet is very tricky as genes/genetics, body type, lifestyle, and other variables play into things, but that after years of trying many different types of diets (Paleo, Atkins, Keto, Vegan, Low-Carb, Low-Fat, Fasting Diet, etc.) that he now loosely follows the Blue Zone Mediterranean Diet. He goes on to mention his heavily organic and vegetarian based omnivore diet while honing in on clean food and drink as well as nutrition and nutrients including protein, carbohydrates (carbs), vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fats, fiber, and the like to keep his body as healthy and balanced as possible. He also clarifies his exercise routines further, which involves both cardio and resistance training (weightlifting and isometrics).
The conversation then turns to Evette’s identification of the three body types – ectomorph, endomorph, and mesomorph – as well as the hormone body types, and how she does not resonate with any of them. She points out that her Body Type Two is still skinny fat in her stomach area in relation to the T7 to L3 vertebrae and her general posture and she requests any exercise advice that can be offered to improve muscle mass. Gnosis puts forward several ideas on how she can safely improve the muscle mass for those vertebrae and her overall posture.
